Whatever resulted in the file being modified may be to blame, though I wonder how that happened.

Comparing the hash of your file to the expected hash might shed some light on whether or not anything was actually changed in the file itself.

Here's a screen shot of the properties on the zip file. If I extract with the box unchecked the extracted file has different dates, but if I check it the dates are the dates inserted by Pentax.

And here is a screen shot of the properties on the extracted file with the box checked before extracting. Note the security block is gone, and the dates reflect Pentax's dates. Now compare that to earlier posts of the properties, on page one, by both myself and Mark.

How are you unzipping it ? You should just right click the zip file and select "extract all".

I am, not my first rodeo. The blocking think was an issue that popped up sometimes, thanks to Win Attachment Mgr., in earlier versions of Windows, but I've not seen it happen in Win 10. What I think is happening is that it is blocking some parts of the file from extracting. I have what I think is a good version extracted now, but before I risk damage to my camera, I'm waiting to verify with Pentax support.............If I can ever reach them.

Windows quarantines "unsafe" files download from networks (including the Internet) unless the site is in a "safe zone". Checking the "unblock" box doesn't always work. Some workarounds:

Download with a non-Microsoft browser. Then move the file to another folder from where the file was saved to before unzipping it. Sometimes just moving file works even if downloaded with IE or Edge.

How to Disable security blocking:

Also make sure the card is in slot 1 and that the BIN file is in the root folder - the same folder containing the DCIM folder (if any).

Thanks for the response, but I'm aware of how to unblock a zipped file. See my above posts.

Yes. Again thanks for the response but not my first firmware update.

I suspect that I've fixed the problem by unblocking the file then extracting, but what I don't know is if it will actually work. I have two shoots coming up that I need this camera on, so I'm afraid to risk messing up my camera to try. At least not without some conformation from Pentax that this was the problem. After two days, I still haven't been able to reach them.
