Problem with Pentax site?

Hi all, just wondered if anyone else was noticed the firmware update for the KX won't download on the Pentax USA site. I borrowed a friends KX to shoot some video, and noticed they still have fw 1.0 so I tried to update it but no luck. hopefully they will fix the problem.

Use Pentax Japan's site. All the links are found at the bottom of this page:

Pentax Cameras | Pentax K-5 vs. Pentax K-r vs. Pentax K-x - Pentax DSLR Comparison - PentaxForums.com

For the k-x firmware, look in the lower-right corner; there's a like to 1.01.

Try running it as an administrator and make sure it's in a writeable directory.
