When the camera acts strange it won't be the firmware. There must be another cause. Looking for other software for that camera is useless, because nobody will spent time to reprogram a point and shoot camera. When the camera is not working good, check if it is still under waranty and contact a Nikon certified repair centre close to you.

How can I get the latest firmware for Nikon D60


Go to the Nikon support at the Nikon website at www.nikon.com and look for firmware updates for your camera. There should be instructions as to how to download and install the updates in your camera. You will need the appropriate cord to connect your camera to the computer. Best I can determine the cords are standard so if you've misplaced yours, a similar USB cord that will fit your camera's port should work. You can also order replacement cords from Nikon.

Tip

Add new features to your WRT modem


A good many of these routers can be 'upgraded' by the installation of 3rd party firmware. If your router is more than a year old then it is likely to be compatible with any one of the firmwares described in this excellent wikipedia entry:

After turning the power off for about 1 hour I am unable to connect via my wirless router. I can by pass the router to connect to the internet.


Make sure you update your wireless router firmware..
Use link below to update

http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-ca/wireless/lbc/WRT54G2

Please note:

Linksys is known for alot of problems with there firmwares causing tons for problems ..

I use a linksys wireless router my self & had to unplug the router every 2 to 4 days because it would stop any computers to go on the internet.
I flashed my firmware and put in a 3rd party firmware that has never caused any problems and it gave me tons of features that your linksys firmware did not.

If you are a advanced user you can flash your firmware and put in non-linksys firmware. Not all routers can accept this firmware but you can search up your router model and version to see. Make sure you read all the how to install and all the warnings .. Keep in mind there is a chance no matter if you followed the instructions exactly that it could destroy your router. But the chance is low.

Rolling back firmware


Cardinal Rule ....1
NEVER update any FIRMWARE.....

Cardinal Rule ...2
if in doubt refer to rule 1

You CANNOT rollback firmwares once loaded, Firmwares are programs written within a CHIP inside the hardware.
You can rollback Drivers and update them also, but Firmwares are not of the same nature.

for example if you have a MP3 player that has a specific Firmware, the firmware is specifically programed to run that hardware(MP3 player), once you change the firmware the hardware will not be able to recognize the firmware and viceversa.

Sorry


Hi,

Ok i've done alot of research on this drive this afternoon, here is what I found.

This drive is notorious for producing problems with either DVD or CD disc's not being read and I have found no-one that has resolved this issue.

There are firmware updates available for the drive, however they will not solve the issue and they are thrid party ones and not stock ones from Liteon - If you want the web address for them I can give you it but I don't endorse 3rd party firmwares and you will have search for the actual firmware for your device once your there.

As for the drivers, can't find any stock drivers anywhere.

My personal opinion is to replace the drive, there are plenty on eBay to choose from.

Sorry if its bad news.

Cheers
