Hello,

... well, 512 came up bad. Im not sure how
that is...

The CoolPix 5K cameras have approximately five million pixels, and
each and every one of these has its individual address, or number.
The "bad pixel table" in the camera already contains the addresses
of the 512 hottest pixels in the sensor as the camera leaves the
Nikon plant.

As the camera ages, some previously "healthy" pixels will become
hot. This is a natural ageing process, but it can be a good idea to
run the remap software when new hot pixels will start appear in
your photos.

What happens is the following: the camera will first discard the
previous contents of the "bad pixel table". Then it will take an
automatic five second "black frame" exposure to detect the 512
hottest pixels. The addresses of these will then be inserted in the
"bad pixel table". That's it!

Anyways, my main point was in the program, it says:
NIKON NIKON DSC E5700 1.00
FIRMWARE: v583-80

But when I check my firmware on my camera, it shows v1.1, so How
come the program says I have 1.00 but my camera says 1.1? Thanks
for the help.

That's a minor bug in the Russian program. The easiest way to find
out the true firmware version is this: switch off the camera, and
then hold down the MENU button while powering the camera on again.
The firmware version should now be displayed along with some neat
graphics.

Thomas
