k10D firmware - help!

I'm trying to update the firmware on my k10d to 1.3.

Currently, I'm still at v1.0. Per the Pentax website, I must have versions 1.0 to 1.2 installed prior to installing 1.3. Problem is, the Pentax website only has V1.3 available for DL. So...is there any way to get the previous versions???

It seems silly that they don't leave the old firmware versions available for download...

Have you tried to upgrade to v1.3 and had problems?
You should just be able to upgrade with the v1.3 update file, as you've indicated, from v1.0 to 1.2.

If you have trouble with that, do a google search for the previous firmware updates and you may find it elsewhere.

You have to have 1.0-1.2... as in 1.0 OR 1.2 to install 1.3... You already have 1.0 so install 1.3 and you will be fine.

If I understand correctly you are trying to update K10D to 1.3 firmware? Don't worry about all the firmwares in between. They are all included in 1.3. Do this all the time at work. Skip cameras from 1.0 to 1.3. No problem. Have it on SD card permanently for quick up dating of customers cameras. Just make sure SD card has been formatted before loading firmware and that camera batteries are full. Good luck. Enjoy the new features and performance.
thanks

Ok - I'll give that a go - thanks all. The instructions on the Pentax website are misleading...

i was at the same boat as you are and your issues was one of my first couple of post on this forum. Go ahead and do the fw upgrade. Your camera will work just fine.
