I just tested it and it started to download for me: attached is a screen-shot. Maybe manually type in the dropbox link address, or maybe your internet browser has a block on downloading large files.

@Palmetto. I'll try to share information from my successful experience, that worked for me, and hopefully it will help to identify why the car is not recognising your SD card: (sorry if this is obvious to some, but my philosophy is that its always worth checking when this don't work as they should)

I bought a 32G Sandisk SD card specifically for this. I am not expert but I've heard that some systems cannot recognise larger memory cards.
I took care to format the SD card to FAT32 and gave the memory card the name described in the text file:
"Format SD card with fat32 and then rename to:7P6051236BF"

Make sure all of the files are stored on the SD card exactly as extracted:

Hopefully there is some difference here that enables you to get your system upgraded.

Thanks for the updates took a while to download, but the install went smoothly. That should keep me happy for a while.

I just updated my 2012 touareg firmware
I went from version 0319 to version 0711
I used this link to download it: MEGA
I then inserted a 32gb sd card. I formatted it at a mandatory fat32
I then unzipped the downloaded file from above and placed it into the SD card (unzipped version only)
I then followed post 101 to a T (download the PDF, read instructions) and after maybe 20-30 minutes the new firmware was up and operational. I had to resync my cellphone which took seconds. New firmware is fast and fluid. Seems to be a few more options over the old 0319 version. I'll test reverse cam response and connection time to Bluetooth phone tomorrow (this delay was pretty long on original firmware)
I'll also attempt the maps update tomorrow and reply.
yrktrg, thanks a million so far (and everybody else thats helping)
Thanks!!! I just updated my radio from 319 to 711! These instructions worked great and very easy.
