I am attempting to update the firmware on my 14-42mm and 100-300mm lenses, but the instructions Panasonic has on the support website do not work.

A telephone support rep said I should unzip the downloaded files (.lin) extension, but my computer (Windows 7) will not show that option and I cannot find another program to unzip it. These are the only downloaded files I have ever had this problem with.

Anyone have any tips for doing these updates?

If you are seeing a ".lin" the file has already been extracted.

Copy the extracted file to a card (otherwise blank) and insert to the camera.
