K100d Super firmware update

Maybe someone more experienced than myself could help?
I recently replaced the SD card I had previously been using, with a Toshiba 8GB SDHC. The card captured the images OK, but I was unable to upload them to my PC.
I followed the firmware update procedure supplied by Pentax, but the update did not run. Nothing happened when I switched on the camera while pressing the Menu button.
I read somewhere on the forum that the firmware update does not apply to the K100d Super.
Is this correct?
I have asked Ricoh/Pentax how to resolve the problem, but they haven't yet provided an answer.
As I am now getting desperate, I would very much appreciate any assistance.

Thank you.

No update available

No firmware update for the K100ds was ever issued.

The k100d and k100d super have different firmware. The k100d super always supported SDHC. I wonder if your pc our card reader is unable to handle sdhc.

I own both cameras btw.

Thank you for your assistance.
I will investigate the situation as regards the reader and PC.
It appears, based on my limited use of the forum, that many users are more knowledgeable than Pentax customer support personnel.
