Here the file is 18.9MB (18,880,016 bytes), if that's any help.

I know this makes no sense, but I figured it out (kind of). Out of desperation, I borrowed a macbook, downloaded the file, transferred it to an SD card and it worked on the first try. Maybe it's a problem with Windows 10?
Glad it worked out. Win10 self-installed last week despite me turning off the auto-update option. I rolled it back to WIN 7 until I can sell some lenses to buy an iMac.

Nuh. I did my K-1 and K-S2 on Win 10 cleanly.

Anyway, the main thing is you're up and going!

I did mine just last Friday using Win 10 and again no problems. Anyway the main thing is you done it and have the new functions.

Windows 10 is not a problem. File name and sizes are correct. In Windows there is no need to use the extract command. Just double click on the .zip file to open it, right click on the .bin-file and chose copy. Then go to the root directory of the card and paste it. After that you should "eject" the card to make sure that data is written properly.

You might try taking the file from win 10 and Mac and file comparing them. Maybe the win 10 system corrupted the file. That's not normal behavior but it is possible.
