Choose your operating system, download the firmware updater software and just follow (the very detailed) instructions. It is really easy. As long as you don't unplug the camera once the updater has started, you should be fine (which the instuctions say like a bazillion times).

Good luck.

But be careful with those detailed instructions. I was finally able to update my 5n, but only after IGNORING some of the instructions. In the instructions there was something about certain icons appearing in the lower right hand corner of my computer screen, and what to do with them. But no such icons appeared on my screen, so those icons and instruction are what I ignored. Good luck.

Thanks a lot for the heads up! I'll make sure to not get confused by missing icons.
