EM-1 Firmware update 4.1

I have tried to update to firmware version 4.1 on my EM-1. I get a message informing me that the programme does not recognise my camera. Any idea

Re: EM-1 Firmware update 4.1

I've been thinking of doing mine for a while but you've just put me off. Hope someone comes up with some thoughts.

Re: EM-1 Firmware update 4.1

Have you got the latest version of the Olympus Viewer and/or Camera updater? (Try updating that before the camera)

Connect the camera to the computer. Then the camera when switch on will display a menu. Select the option as if downloading images. Start the update program and the camera will be recognised.

Don't think, just do it.
First make sure the Updater is the latest or OV3 which incorporate the Updater. Then make sure the battery is freshly charged & all should go fine if you follow the instructions. You have done previous updates, haven't you?

Re: EM-1 Firmware update 4.1

Thanks for all for your responses. I have now successfully updated my EM1. When I pressed Storage on the camera list and then Next on the computer screen it all worked perfectly. Updated 60 mm macro at the same time.
