Need assistance with updating firmware on A7RIII

Hi Guys,

Starting to see some of the shortcomings of Sony firmware updates.

I have a A7RIII that has version 1.0 software. Trying to get to version 3.1.

First tried this on my Mac M1. What a goat rope process, that is. Couldn't get the Sony updater to find the camera, so gave up on that mess.

Fired up my old Dell Latitude (running Windows 7 with all updates installed; 32 bit version). Dowloaded the Sony PC firmware, connected the camera via the instructions and still the software can't find the camera.

Yes, I am running the factory Sony USB cable. Tried different ports (this Dell has four USB ports)

Nothing gives.

Thoughts/ideas?
