Thanks for accepting me - A naive question

Hi
Sorry to ask that
I bought late in 2014 ( I think ? ) a K3
Now I have the camera saying that the SDcard is not formatted
So I thought that maybe is time to update the firmware ( I never did cause hardly used it , now the firmware is 1.0 )
The problem is that I don't have another SD card in order to do it, anyway I'am gonna buy one tomorrow
the naive question is if I succeed in updating the firmware to 1.40, I got also all the previous firmware updates ( included in the file of the firmware 1.40 ? )
thanks

Welcome aboard. And to answer your question, all updates to firmware includes previous firmware updates, they're cumulative.

By the way, you can format the card in-camera as well, or using any computer. Just be aware that this will also delete all data on the card.

Welcome to the Forums. As others have said, the latest update includes all previous updates. Just be sure that your K-3 battery is fully charged before you do the update. A camera that dies in mid-update is, unfortunately, dead forever!

Glad it worked out. Updating the first time can be a scary experience.
