I was thrilled with the result, so giving you a bit of feedback was the very least I could do.

Had a good chuckle about your "expensive paperweight" comment, but I'm pleased to say I've put it through its paces using SDHC cards and the camera's as good as gold.

I'll be "tuning" into this forum on a regular basis from now on, so I might catch you again on one of the other threads. I've got a lot to learn and this looks like the ideal place to me.

Cheers and take care
Vic

You guys took the trouble to help me out, so I owe it to you all to let you know how it panned out.

I followed all of your instructions to the letter and it worked like a dream. I must say I got a bit nervous when phase 2/2 slowed down and almost stopped for a while, but when I finally saw "COMPLETE" appear in the bottom left hand corner, I knew I was home and dry.

So a final thanks to all of you for your amazing help........I couldn't have done without it.

Cheers
Vic

Hi Paul,

Thanks for taking the trouble to reply. The info. you sent sounds incredibly important and I shudder to think what might have happened if I hadn't scouted around a bit first.

I'm very pleased to have "stumbled" onto this forum and I must really compliment you guys on your amazing response times and the invaluable information that you've provided me with.

So thanks again Paul.......your advice is very much appreciated.

Hi Peter,

Thanks for your very speedy reply. I'm pleased to hear that it's not as difficult as I first thought and that the SDHC works fine with the update. Your reply has put my mind at rest, so I'll tackle it in the morning.

Thanks again,
Vic

K100D firmware update

Hi all,


Eaglem advised me to repost this query here, so here goes:-

I'm a rank amateur/beginner when it comes to cameras and photography, so it came as a bit of a surprise to me to find out that my Pentax K100D wouldn't accept the 4GB SDHC memory card I'd just bought.


After scanning the net, I soon discovered that I had to update the firmware. Mine is version 1.00 and it appears I need to download version 1.02 onto the camera. I've downloaded it onto my PC, so I'm ready for the next step.



That brings me to a few questions:
  • Is it advisable to do this on a K100D or should I just rather stick with 2GB SD cards?

  • I've re-charged my batteries as was advised on the Pentax download site, but can any other critical failures occur whilst installing the firmware and if so, what are they and can they damage or make the camera unusable? Also, how does one prevent them from happening?

  • Finally, is there a fool-proof step-by-step guide available to installing the firmware? I have found a few guidelines, but none that are written in an idiot-proof manner.

Hopefully one of you guys can point me in the right direction, because I'd hate to mess this up.

Cheers and thanks,
Vic
