Hi Jimmy, follow these links mate. The 1st link is the firmware upgrade, and the second link is how to install it. Good luck.

Do you mean the 'firmware' or the DCU 'software'? Previous posters gave you good advice for the firmware update. Do make sure that your battery is fully-charged before doing a firmware update.

The DCU (digital camera utility) software can upgraded on your computer. You can get the latest update from Ricoh Support webpage. If you are installing the software for the 1st time and do not have the CD, use a memory stick that you rename S-SW140.

Hope that the comment may help.
