E-P3 Firmware Update

Thought it would be a good idea to update the firmware on my E-P3, ready for if/when I get a VF-2. I loaded the latest software (Viewer 2, ib) which came with the camera, then proceded with the firmware update as instructed. Problem is, when I connect my Pen I get a message saying the software does not recognize the camera.

Any ideas, please?

Could be that Viewer needs updating John.
I think there was a recent update for it.

Mine is showing v1.21

Thanks Huw, mine was showing v1.2. I've now updated it to v1.21 but I still get a message saying that it cannot detect a camera.

Somehow I never get a warm feeling when updating firmware the Olympus way.

Re: E-P3 Firmware Update

That's probably it - and I'm presuming that you chose the storage option when the camera turned on after the USB cable was connected?

Re: E-P3 Firmware Update

Have you got access to another PC you could try?
Might be worth a go.

Whoop! Didn't know I had to. I thought that was just for uploading pictures and I didn't see it mentioned in the on screen instuctions, which I was following to the letter. Thanks Ian, I'm off to try again!

Re: E-P3 Firmware Update

Well, that didn't take too long, although I wish there was a progress bar rather than just a rotating icon - a couple of minutes seems a long time when you don't know exactly what's happening and it's slightly unnerving. I still seem to have a fully functioning camera, which is a relief.

Thanks again, Huw and Ian.
