If i'ts not a space thing (which seem unlikely) then it "wont work with this version". You need the 'metric' version of MFT! Joking aside, I have to wonder if there is not a slightly different version for Canada. I speculate this mainly because nobody else got this error and I can't think of any other reason why Ford wouldn't have send USBs to Canadian Dealers?

Did you download from the Ford Synmyride site or frond our "hero" zip file poster? Do you guys have a separate .cs (Canadian) sync site or are you folks directed to the same site as us Yankees for support? OK, I'm done speculating now.

The update is now available for download through syncmyride.com for people without navigation (at least in Canada) so I'm downloading from there and going to try it. It might have been a Canada vs US version thing which I could easily believe since some services aren't available to us here.

Hopefully the next time you hear from me will be in about an hour with a freshly installed update. :)
That was my thought. Let us know how it goes. Im getting it from syncmyride too but have to work soon so I don't have time to install it until tomorrow afternoon.

Wouldnt that be a gigantic fubar if for whatever reason this got left out of the update on the Ford website and its something thats needed.
That is interesting.....

I have been swamped during my evenings this week and haven't had a chance to try!

Syncmyride is the same for Canada as it is for the US. The only difference is we don't have access to sync services. Believe it or not, that could be the difference. I've seen software for various companies not work because you wanted to switch regions or something stupid like that. Anyhow, the update IS available from syncmyride for me, meaning it's warranty approved so I'll download it and install it tomorrow.

Conspiracy theorists please chime in!

The one given to me by my local dealer was 696MB - identical to seseattle's.

Had to do a reboot of the system to get the install to run, once that was done it worked and I'm currently just waiting for it to complete. Here's hoping it finishes without a hitch.

Guess there was something up with my system from the get go since I've only had the car for about 10 days. No wonder album art never really worked right.
