Thumbs up How to update FW, Aussie style!

These guys did an instruction video for those that haven't done a firmware update yet, but maybe you might just want to see it 'with an Aussie accent' anyhow.

Re: How to update FW, Aussie style!

Interesting - I never heard the advice to remove SD cards before updating before.

Anyway, it worked fine for me when I did the updates :-)

Iíve never heard it cause particular problems in Olympus cameras, although I think it may speed up the process a little of you do remove them, but itís very strongly recommended for the Sony A7 series.

ĎBrickingí Sonys on updating seems relatively common and thereís a big list of resources and advice on the subject, of which the excellent Brian Smith's is widely recommended and probably itís a good idea to apply all the relevant ones to Oly updates:

The advice to remove memory cards for FW updates have been mentioned in their manuals for as long as I can remember (since E410 for me), but not necessarily in the manuals for recent models & I can't find it in the manual for this one, however, it is mentioned in the web instructions. http://cs.olympus-imaging.jp/en/supp...date_setbk.cfm

Caution:
Log on to your computer using an account with Administrator privileges.
Connect the computer to the Internet. Olympus recommends using a hard-wired connection, if available, to limit the risk of service interruption during the firmware update. A wireless connection may also be used.
Make sure the camera has sufficient power to complete the operation. Use freshly charged batteries or the optional AC adapter. (Adapter not available for all models.)
Remove the memory card from the digital camera.
A camera's firmware cannot be returned to an earlier version once it has been updated.
