Have had problems using the firmware update, and now notice that both the above are only compatiable up to Mac OSX 10.3. I use 10.4 and now 10.5 is out. Have others had the same problem? Only seems to affect firmware updates and not image transfer

Yes, I'm running 10.5.1 and the firmware update feature is broken - says something about admin rights. It was the same on 10.4 as well I seem to remember. Fortunately, I've got a windows pc as well!

I'll enquire with Olympus to see if there is a work around...

Interesting. Have just installed the trial version of Olympus Studio, and it all works, although for the E3 has to be in storage mode and for the E1 in control mode. Might be worth pestering Olympus -perhaps Ian knows someone there?

Latest position is that Studio works ok (but will cost 99 after the trial period).
Olympus confirm that Viewer will not work with an intel based Mac (as far as Firmware upgrades are concerned?)
Regarding Master, Olympus say that there is a new version v2.05, which has to be a new download and install (i.e. it won't upgrade from an earlier version), but the link they gave me only directs to v2.0, which only upgrades to v2.04. I can't find any later version on their web-site and so have raised another query.

and now the answer.
On the Olympus download page for Master you should find four drop down menus on the top right.
These need to be changed to refer to v2.05 and Mac which will then give you an option to download it.
Works for me although I have not tried Firmware update with it as yet.
