K5 Firmware SD card size

Hi,

On the Pentax website, it states that in order to update your firmware, you must have a 32gb sd card in your camera. Is this really a requirement? I can't imagine having to have that huge of a space for the update. I only have a 16gb card in my camera, will this work? Has anyone else used a smaller capacity card for their firmware update?
Thanks!!

Really? I have used cards as small as 4GB to load - can't imaging the firmware files are more than a few MB.

Do you have a link to the page that states this?

Edit: Found it - it says 32MB, not GB

"You will need a blank, formatted memory card with a capacity of 32 MB or higher."

It's megabytes, not gigabytes. In other words, just about any card you have.

Wow, I feel incredibly stupid!! All of this time, I have been reading Gb, instead of Mb!! I am so accustomed to seeing "Gb" everywhere in school. I thought it was strange!

Thanks so much!!
