Updating firmware on a Tascam DP-32SD or DP-24SD

It seems that TASCAM manual writers are morons.   the update procedure they documented is completely wrong. and filled with dumb omissions or steps.

step 1  format a SD card in your tascam
step 2 unzip the firmware files
step 3 copy the contents of the zip file to the "utility" folder on the sd card
step 4 insert into tascam while off.
step 5 press and hold the mute and undo/redo buttons
step 6 power on unit while holding the buttons.
step 7 dont release the buttons until you see the update prompt.

you do not need to hook up USB.   Why the engineers or manual writers decided to state that really dumb line I'll never understand.
