The trouble I had was that my windows 7 wouldn't unzip the downloaded file. I downloaded a trial version of winzip and from there everything went smoothly.

the same thing was happening to me. I finally copied the update on my SD card while it was in the card reader. Then I put the SD card in my K3 & turned on the power holding the menu button. It copied. Don't know why but it worked. Maybe this will help you if you haven't already completed the update.
