A77 1.05 Firmware upgrade glitch/Windows 7
Apr 10, 2012

I finally got around to upgrading my A77 from 1.04 to 1.05 and ran into a small glitch. Step 4 of the procedure under "Download and Update the Firmware" states:

"Verify that the remove hardware icon is displayed in the task tray at the lower right-hand corner of the computer screen"

On my 64-bit Windows 7 machine I could not find such an icon for the camera, so I aborted the procedure and switched to a 32-bit Windows 7 machine. Couldn't find the icon there either. Went to "Computer" on the run menu and right-clicked on the drive corresponding to the camera, and clicked "eject"when I got to step 8. That worked and the upgrade proceeded without further incident.
