Hi Ray,

What exactly is your problem? Did you download and unpack the content of FW zip? If you do so, you should get the file rg1_v002.frm .Now simply upload that file to the SD card (either via the card reader or by connecting the camera to your computer).

If you connect the camera to computer, you should see it as a new drive. Then simply move the file rg1_v002.frm to "ricoh" drive (its root). Then disconnect the camera, start it and in the menu search for Confirm Firmware Version (last item in Setup menu). Then confirm overwriting of existing FW with new version and wait for confirmation.

Strange. What it says if you select the "Confirm Firmware Version" option?
