Problem with updating FW1.10 on K3

Hii guys,

1            I am having no luck in updating the firmware on my K3.

2  I have formatted an SD card 4Gb in the camera.

3 Downloaded the 1.10 FW from the Pentax FW site.

4 I copied the FW to the card and put it in what I think is the root file; DC1M

5 Then I put the card in slot 1 of the camera and shut the door.

6 Then I held down the menu button and switched on the camera.

7 The camera came on as normal and there was no sign of the invitation to follow updating procedures.

8  I have tried this several times the camera coming on as normal each time.

9 The battery indicates fully charged.

What am I missing here?  I have done many an update over the years and never had a problem!

Thanks in advance.
