    from the Konica firmware download page its written:

    "Special PPLM Firmware file to allow storage on one USB Thumb Drive (Version 1.9) for the following models:
    bizhub C452, C552, C652, C552DS, C652DS, 552, 652, C220, C280, C360, 223, 283, 363, 423, C451, C550, C650, C203, C253, C353"

    sounds useful...but i cant find any tech Bulletins or instructions on how to use it...

    The USB PPLM firmware is for the newer models like the C360. The procedure is the same.

    The PPLM firmware contains all firmware for models C220, C280, C360, C452, C552, C652, BH223, 283, 363 and 423. To install just go to right side of machine and open the USB port for firmware. There is a screw and the cover slides over to uncover the USB port. Turn machine off using main power switch behind front cover. Leave sub-switch on. Insert USB drive containing PPLM firmware. Turn on main power switch. Update firmware. Turn off main power switch. Remove USB drive.
    Make memory and softswitch adjustments for optimization. Power machine off then on.
    That should do it.

    The C203,C253, C353 are updated using compact flash. You need the "firmware imaging toolkit" to write the card.

    It must be a mistake, you cannot update C203 and C451 series through USB, only a CF card will do the job.
