File downloads to my Mac as fwdc228b-2.bin
You have extracted the firmware file twice, by the look of it.

The file name that you copy to the SD card should be fwdc228b.bin.

I have a Mac, so "extract PC" does not work

I have followed very precisely the website instructions, using two different cards, but still have no success.
Hi Please check that the file name is exactly as described. If you have an earlier version of that file, Mac will add a *2* to the filename, and the camera won't accept it . I have done that bummer a few times myself
I deleted all earlier downloads from Pentax, dowloaded it again, so the file got saved by the correct name.

Sorry , seems like I was a bit late with my solution

You have to extract that zip file first.

Not time-lapse.

You have a -2 file marker. If you have a -2 extension you have an old FW update also on the card or in the computer folder. The update will only work if you first remove the old .bin file before decompressing. and from the card, then update from the clean .bin file.
Thank you... I was having exactly the same issue, your a Pentax hero.

That isn't the filename the instructions say you need. 😊

The"-2" indicates it's the third try to unzip the original download. Remove that from the filename, and you're good to go.
