Default HD A3 Firmware update problem

ok so i downloaded the firmware update for my hd a3. i put it on disc as they recommended (burning an image cd) and i put it the disc in the player and it started fine. I got the screen where i was prompted to download the latest update and i said yes. It flashed step 1/4 and i thought everything was fine so i turned away for a few minutes and now its been flashing "loading" for the last hour. I was just wondering if this was normal. Idiots at Toshiba told me to keep the player on until it completed and said it could take up to an hour to update but that was well over an hour ago. Now tech support is closed and i have no other help. They did recommend not to turn off the player so i haven't done that but i have no clue if this is normal or not

Please help

Updates of my A2 took about 20 minutes by disc, and about 30 minutes over the internet. Sounds bad.

You should order the update disc from Toshiba, wait it out.. Should take less than 10 days. I don't have the A3, but have had problems with burning update discs before..
