Card reader really needed for Firmware update?

Hi,

I've been trying to copy the bin file to the memory card in order to update the firmware on my Z6. Can't copy it (or any other file, or create a folder). Basically, it seems the card is in read-only mode.

One-minute search allowed me to find other people with the same issue and others answering that a card reader is needed to update the firmware. Ok, I understand that, but... how was I able to update to firmware 2.0? I mean, I'm pretty sure that I updated the firmware (it's 2.01 now).

The easiest answer would be that I didn't and that's the FW it got when I bought it, but I really remember updating it... Has anyone been able to update the firmware without a card reader (before, at least).

Perhaps they added the card reader restriction in the last update I installed?

Cheers!
