Firmware updates and Macs

Hi,

The menus in my DL7 don't all match what's in the updated user manual. Specifically the wi-fi setting is missing (replaced with a Fotos option that can be used for Bluetooth switch-on).

I downloaded the 98MB V2 firmware to try and re-install (camera is already on V2 but thought I'd try and reload it).

I tried to un-pack the .bin folder but even stuffit expander won't open it.

So, I thought I'd just drop the .bin file onto the SD card..... but get a "no entry" sign and can't. I can drop it to a thumb drive with no issues.

The card is not locked, it's formatted in the camera (and camera sets it up as a FAT32 disc).

FAT32 is supposed to be fully compatible with Macs (and I have no trouble dropping the pictures from the card to the Mac).

Would it be an idea to reformat the card on the Mac to ExFAT and try again?

Any ideas welcome as I'm stumped!
