you just need to download the file, extract contents. copy FWDC202B.BIN to your SD card root, and turn your camera on while holding down the MENU button. it'll do the rest. make sure there is enough juice in the battery.

PC : http://www.pentaximaging.com/files/software/k2000e110w.EXE

mac : http://www.pentaximaging.com/files/software/k2000e110m.zip

VERSION HISTORY

Version 1.10

In the cropping function of the Playback menu, added the ability to change the crop shape from rectangle to square.
When the Help button is reprogrammed to Digital Filter, added the ability to engage the Digital Filter using the Help button in playback mode. Previously, this only worked in image capture mode.
Added a Custom digital filter to the available filters in capture mode. This filter can be customized to the photographer's personal preferences, and saved.

I tried to install the new firmware through my k7 and could not do it. I have a mac with snow leopord.os. I finally had a friend download the update to a card and put that in the camera and it worked no problem.
