Updating X-E1 firmware without a card reader

Stumbled into an interesting issue. Although I import all my photos, etc via USB, the only way to install firmware seems to be to put the SD card into my computer's card reader and copy it across.

It seems like I should be able to just copy the firmware file onto the camera, as when I plug it in via USB I can freely browse the camera's SD card. It just seems I can't write to it from the computer.

Anyone know if this can be circumvented and I be able to copy a file onto the camera reader than merely read from it? Otherwise I guess I'll just have to go get one of those antiquated SD card reader thingies.
