A77 Firmware Update

I can't get the .exe program to update the firmware on my a77. I have followed it to the letter and nothing. It never gets to the update section. I am using USB cable and battery.

Can someone please post instructions that they have used to update the firmware?

Thanks,

Robert

Re: A77 Firmware Update

Did you set the in camera USB setting and did you look at the EVF.

I've never had to look in the EVF to do a USB update. Ever. Back LCD screen for instructions yes... Viewfinder? No.

Re: A77 Firmware Update

I just did the update myself yesterday. I can't wait to try the hvl58 on it tomorrow to see if the flash exposure is indeed fixed as many claim.

Re: A77 Firmware Update

Yeah, I just found out that the 58 flash may be resolved with 1.07, wish they would include all these things in the changes list info...

And for the above, great to hear you got it all working but would perhaps be better to know what windows (OS) you were using and also if the USB port was 2 or 3 etc.. lots of variables for users doing updates...

Do you need to install every A77 Firmware Update?

Do I need to install firmware 1.6 before 1.7? Or can I just upgrade directly from 1.5 to 1.7 or whatever the numbers are?

Just install the latest update (1.07). It contains all the updates from the very beginning.
