Samsung YP-Q2 firmware upgrade failed

my Samsung YP-Q2 Video/Audio Player arrived today. But it didn't play .ogg audio files as expected, it just spit out "unsupported file". So I thought a firmware upgrade would solve it. I downloaded the latest firmware (1.23) for the Q2 from the Samsung Download Center and exactly followed the instructions in the manual. I extracted the archive, copied Q2Update.dat to the player, disconnected it from the usb cable, and turned it on.
Then there was a message "Updating firmware". After a few seconds it disappeared and the player turned off.
I tried again. Again there was the message "Updating firmware" which disappeared again and the player turned off. I also discovered that shortly before it turns off it says "Upgrade failed". I repeated this many times, always the same result. I can't use it now anymore
What can I do to recover the original firmware and get the player in a useable state?
