Can't Update K20D firmware

Hi,

Can someone help me? I have downloaded the K20D firmware version 1.04 and followed the instructions that came with the file. The camera will noyt update the firmware from version 1.00 to 1.04. It seems the camera doesn't recognise the file.

Help

Thanks!

Did you extract the .bin file and copy it to the card outside any folders?

Here's the generic troubleshooting guide, chances are one of these applies to you:
  • Ensure you downloaded the correct firmware file for your camera (a K-3 II update will not work in a Pentax K-3, for example)
  • Ensure that you extracted the .BIN file out of the ZIP (the .BIN file is the only thing that the camera wants)
  • Check that the .BIN file is in the top level (root directly) of the SD card, outside of the DCIM folder
  • Ensure that the .BIN file has not been renamed
  • Check that your battery is fully charged
  • If your camera has two SD slots, the card with the update must be placed in SD1
