is this it? Now do I drag this complete ikon fwdc21b-1.bin into the SD card? I use Mac


sounds like you already had a file of the same name in the folder you extracted it to , You mac has kindly renamed it to an unusable name.

Delete all the .bin files in that folder and try the extractions again.

Whe you have a file the same name it appears in the zip then drag it to the SD card root folder , power on camera holding menu.

follow instructions on display

It downloaded as, For Windows/Macintosh : k5_2_107.zip thenit canged at completion to fwdc216b-3bin and it is still in the downloads window not on the desktop.

What do I do with it now?

opps. should have read this. Provide a formatted SD memory card for the update software.

The download file is self-extracting. The following file is extracted.

  • [K-5II] Fwdc216b.bin: This is the updated firmware.
