FLU card update went wrong

Hi I need some help with my flu card pro 16GB O-FC1
after something went wrong with an update the initial files are deleted, can somebody help my by making a disk copy of his/her flu card so i can reinstall the initial files on the card.
(i accidentally did an update for a regular flu card instead of de Pentax update)
If any one can help i am very great full, i use the flu card quiet regularly and like it, it lags speed but it works

Couldn't you just restart the Pentax update? I don't think the card lets you delete its system files, but I could be wrong.

I had my flucard quit working after I updated the firmware on my K-S1 (using the flucard for the update.) I found a download from Ricoh's site that let me re-load the flucard software (it was a firmware update for the flucard, but was the same version mine had originally had.) I'll see if I can find the link next time I'm at my computer.

Thanks for the replies;

@adam; i did try to use the uninstall for the new (wrong) update and after that did an renewed pentax update, this didn't finish it kept beeping.
I see files on the card, i can acces the card both with computer and camera, but i cannot activate wifi
@Jhankins, i have the most recent update from ricoh on the computer (the one i should have used) but its not working see above.
Maybe when you have a link to the old one i can try it

It might be worth contacting Pentax/Ricoh's technical support about this, if messing around with the files on the card doesn't let you enable the wireless. Also, try a different card slot just in case.
