Firmware won't update with 64 GB Extreme Pro SD Card

Turns out I couldn't update the firmware with the SanDisk Extreme Pro 64 GB Card and had to find an older 32 GB card.

Tech support from Ricoh @ Toll Free: 1-800-224-6767 was great.

On version 1.03 now

That's weird- I've used that same card to upgrade my K-5 in the past. SDXC cards need to be formatted differently than SDHC cards so maybe that was the issue.
