The firmware update fails to address the worst possible
birth defect this device had from the start:

It is a network device that can't be accessed as a network drive.

In fact it does not integrate into your own network, but instead
uses your network to integrate into Canon's ecosystem.
Everything boild down to you supplying and paying for their
bridgehead into their hardcopy and photobook business.

I wouldn't mind that if at least the thing would deliver the
basic functions I can expect from any NAS - mappable as
a network drive and file access for image processing via
Photoshop and co.

My plan was to put one each in both of our studios and another
one right next to my postprocessing workplace. Easy ingestion
for all material and accessible from all our computers on the
premises.

Failed. All you get is a very simple UpnP browser access to
a very rudimentary viewing/slideshow interface in dummy
user mode.

Canon miserably failed with this device.

I'm unable to install the Canon Connect Station app from Google Play store. It shows "This device doesn't have enough space to download." I almost delete whole of my device and has enough space for an app to get installed but error doesn't go away how do I fix it?

While most of those on the forum own a powerful personal computer, I think the connect station is more aimed at those who are not power users of computers.
