No joy with the firmware downloaded from the Japanese site of Ricoh.
What size card are you using? Version 1.0 of the firmware does not support SDHC and is limited to 2GB or smaller cards.

Make sure you are placing the bin file in the root directory. If you formatted the card in the camera there should be a DCIM folder in the root. Formatting on a computer is not recommended unless you use SD Formatter (free download).

I'm using the 256mb SD card that I've been using for years now in my camera. Formatted in the camera, having the bin file in the root.
Could it be that the 256mb card is too slow? 🤔 The camera boots with original firmware before it van access the file on the SD card?
(I lost my 1Gb card, which is why i need to upgrade)

Hi, AvB - did you solve your firmware update? I'm having the same problem.
