I'm trying to do my first sync upgrade on my 2013 Explorer and have tried every suggestion possible on the forum and I always get the same error "File Not Found" "Please check that the installation file is in the root directory of your storage device". So far I've tried:

  1. (3) different USB drives
  2. Using touch screen for App updates
  3. Using steering wheel commands to select USB drive

At this point, It's either take it to the dealer or give up...

Hey dougarndt,

 

Have you tried a master reset prior to inserting the USB? If not, please give that a try first:

Also, did you unzip the file directly onto your USB or onto the desktop first?

Hi ivisonj,

 

Please disregard the 5.9 update showing on your account. This was added to accounts by mistake and there is currently no file to download and install.

 

 

I'm have the same problem.

 

Which SYNC system do you have, James:

Currently, systems showing an invalid update are basic SYNC and SYNC with Voice-Activated Navigation. The 3.8 MyFord Touch update is valid and can be installed.

Yes, forgot to mention I did a master reset too. The files automatically unzip to my desktop unless I put the zipped file on the USB first. If I do that, do I then delete the zipped file off the USB before updating?


Thanks,


Doug

I was able to use a different program to unzip the files directly to the USB memory stick, but I still get the same errors.

The folder structure on the memory stick looks something like this...

  • Gen2v38build15128updatepackageNARev2
    • autoinstall.lst
    • DONTINDX.MSA
    • SyncMyRide
      • BT4T-14D546-EE.cab
      • BT4T-14D546-FB.cab
      • EA5T-14D544-AD.zip
      • etc,

​​Is this correct?

Good morning everyone!

I just received word that the "file not found" error is for all updates currently showing available on the website. Please sit tight while my support investigates this. I don't have an ETA, but for those of you with MyFord Touch, I suggest trying to re-download 3.8 later this week.

Hi dougarndt,

Can you please try using Chrome, and clearing your cache and cookies prior to logging into your account. Also be sure to delete the files you already downloaded. Let me know if you're still getting the File Not Found error please.

I see this problem has been around for quite a while. Here it is 2021 and I am having the same problem. Did Ford ever find a fix?

What do you have, what are you attempting to do?

Hi jj. As Multitask asked, what do you have, what are you attempting to do? More information will certainly be helpful.

 

What vehicle and model year do you have? What version of SYNC and version number (found in SYNC settings)?  What are you attempting to do? What have you attempted to do? From where did you download any SYNC files you are trying to install? What instructions did you follow...etc. etc.

 

The more information you provide, the better the chance someone may be able to assist you.

 

Get back to us and good luck.
