Firmware Update Issue on my K7

Hi new to the forum and i could use some help.

I just downloaded the latest firmware update for my K7 and can't seem to get the install working.

I have run the firmware exe to extract the readme and .bin file. Then I copied the .bin file to the root directory of a blank SDHC card.

I inserted the card in the camera and held the menu button will powering up the camera.

The current firmware version display on the lcd screen (ver. 1.02) but the update did not start ... the camera simply powered up as normal

The process seems pretty simple but I can't determine why the update does not start automatically

Any help would be most appreciated

If you're using windows, sometimes dragging the file icon across, just creates a "shortcut" to the original file.

You may care to compare the sizes of the two files. Are they equal?
