Hi I had issues a few months back with a pink flashing light. So gave up on that one then today decided to take it apart and pushed in the wireless card and now its back to normal.
Problem I have now is I have tried to update to the latest firmware but it does not see it on the SD Card. All I get on the Software Update is 7.5.1 r9009.
How can I update to the latest firmware from this
Any help would be great

Are you describing Receiver behavior "...pink flashing light..."
or Controller "...SD card..." ?
Receiver firmware is automatically upgraded from your Squeezebox server side.
I order to do that you need to have latest server software containing firmware. Once Receiver connects to server, upgrading process, if needed, will start.
Controller can be forced to upgrade from SD Card, otherwise is the same process as in case of Receiver.
Why would you take wireless card out ?SB Touch > Buffalo DAC III > Modwright LS 36.5 > Pass Labs XA30.5 > Dynaudio Confidence C1

I was talking about the Reciever with the pink flashing light which indicated there was a problem with the wireless card. I didnt take the card out I just pushed it back and the pink flashing light issue was fixed and now can use it again. Problem is I'm stuck on an old firmware and I cant force it into the latest update using the SD Card or through the server software.

What server version are you running and is it allowed to update ? it's a setting.
By the way jive_7.5.1_r9009.bin is the current controller fw for version 7.5.1 and 7.5.2 of the server there is no s7.5.2 controller software.Reciever software is 65 resp 66 so that is upgraded in 7.5.2
next step is to use 7.5.3 beta server.
Then you will be offered jive_7.5.3_r9283.bin for the controller and 67 for the reciever.
It's bit confused as the release 7.5.2 is very close to 7.5.1 + some minor fixes the previus 7.5.2 beta is continued in 7.5.3 they needed some streaming services fixed asap and did have time for extensive testing.
7.5.1 r 9009 or similar is the controllers software just put the file on an SD card rename it to jive.bin and use the controlers menu to upgrade but It should upgrade itself that is if have upgrades enabled .
If you upgrade via SD card it could be soo that your server want's to downgrade the controller as soon as you connect.
firmware and server version are conected to each other.
