Firmware scare...anyone else?
Oct 28, 2005

Just a bit of a warning before you update the firmware. I did the update this afternoon, after following the steps to the letter, as I always do...the camera wouldn't turn on! I had to load and unload the batteries several tiimes over a few minutes to get the camera to turn back on. As I started the process...put the disk in the camera with the firmware on it...turn to the firmware update in the menu...the camera kept on telling me that I needed a disk with the firmware on it before I could update it...BUT THE DISK WAS ALREADY IN THE CAMERA! Then, as I said, the camera wouldn't turn on, it took several tries for it to finally function. I've done updating of firmware for all of my personal digital cameras, as well as the cameras for many of the photogs I work with who don't feel comfortable doing the update themselves, and I've never had any issues with it.

So I'm wondering if anyone else had some issues while updating to this build?

BTW, several hours later now and the camera does in fact work fine.
