The latest firmware I can find on 

http://na.tm.agilent.com/8720/firmware/firmware.htm

for the 8720D is Rev. 7.48, dated 03/16/99.

But according to 

http://www.home.agilent.com/agilent/techSupport.jspx?searchT=8720d&id=1000002255:epsg:pro&pageMode=OV&pid=1000002255:epsg:pro&cc=IN&lc=eng

the latest firmware version for the 8720D is a later version 7.68, although no date is listed. 

My instrument has version 7.74, dated October 30th 2002, which is later version number than either of these. 

It's interesting that 

http://na.tm.agilent.com/8720/firmware/firmware.htm

lists 7.74, dated October 30th 2000, which is the same version and date in my instrument, but only for the 

Agilent 8719ET/ES, 8720ET/ES and 8722ET/ES. 

with no mention that this version is compatible with the 8720D. 

Yours, somewhat confused, 

Dave, G8WRB.
