Trouble Updating 1.21 Firmware


The update is not recognized when starting up. I had no problems with 1.20.

Here is what I have done.

Formatted SD card
copied bin file to SD card root directory on Mac
inserted the SD card into camera
Full battery
pushed menu button
turned on camera
the camera starts up normally does not recognize firmware

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Thanks, the instructions say to use slot 1 which I did, I did try slot 2 but no help.
Thanks for the reply though.

I deleted the first download and re downloaded the file, copied it to the SD card and now it worked.

Thanks for any thoughts
