Problem with firmware 1.11 K3

Hi Guys,
my K3 is in 1.00 firmware version

I would update this in 1.11 but I can't get the firmware to load into the camera. My K3 doesn't recognize firmware on the card.

Could you help me?

You've probably placed the file in the wrong spot, or haven't extracted the file. A .BIN file should be found in the root (top level, outside of any folder) of the SD card.

See our video tutorial for the complete procedure and some more troubleshooting tips:
