Save the firmware file on your sd card, then you have to find the menu in your camera, to load it in camera memory, make sure your battery is fully charged or it will not work.

Is there a firmware update or any update that will allow me to use a 16gb SDHC card in my Samsung Digimax V800. If there is how do I install it


No. The differences between SD and SDHC goes beyond what firmware can change. It's possible to design a device to use both SD and SDHC cards, but a device that was only designed for SD cards cannot use SDHC cards without hardware changes.

According to the Pentax web site, there is no firmware update available for the 33LF camera. As far as your pics are concerned, you can use a card reader to download them to your computer. Then, you can format the card in the camera and everything should be ok.

How do I update my Nikon Coolpix S210 camera firmware?


There are no official firmware updates for the S210. The currently available firmware updates are posted at
http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/13783

If you do want to update it with some other piece of firmware, simply put it onto an SD card in a folder named "firmware" and plug the card into the camera.

EX-Z60 1.01 UPDATE


Put the new 1.01 update file (not the zip file) in your mmc. Then start the cam with pressing the menu button same time with on/off button.
Cam will ask you if it's ok to update firmware, just select ok and there you go :)
Just make sure you have battery fulle before doing this update.

Freeze Up


A- I have a Pentax Opio S hence I had to get the "fwdc110p.bin" file here:

http://www.badongo.com/file/707791


B- Drop this file on your SD Card at the root directory (same level as DCIM folder) or as described by the following link and then close your camera to OFF:

Attention: Do not load this file yet onto the camera i.e. the menu+power on procedure, follow step C first...


Important!!! Insert a fully charged battery or connect to an external power source.

C- Open the now infamous "Secret Menu" in order to re-initialize your camera prior to re-installing the new firm ware: Simultaneously press MENU + Flash symbol button + Power ON...a white screen with data written in black should show.

Then a sequence of buttons must be pressed: 2 times the focus button (flower, mountain, MF symbols button) followed by 2 toggles to the Right of the "OK" button...then press MENU once and voile...the Secret Menu appears!

Using the down toggle of the OK button, go to ROM UPDATE then go down to "SYSTEM INITIAL" and press OK. Press another OK to re-initialize your camera.

Once this has been completed, turn your camera off.

D- Load the firm ware by opening your camera with the MENU+Power ON procedure...finally this should be posting "Complete" after the "Loading" message, instead of the "Error!" that we initially kept on having.

Your camera should be working perfectly! Only thing is that you will have to redo your personal settings on it from scratch...but hey, this is much better than to wait for months to get your camera back from Pentax and save that money for your next photogenic trip!

Optio 33LF Firmware Upgrade Information & Instructions: This firmware corrects "camera freezing & cannot display images" issues with Sandisk & Black's 128MB & 256MB Secure Digital Cards. This problem is occurred because Sandisk changed the manufacturing location from the Philippine's to China during production of the Optio 33LF. They also change the electronic chip used the SD Card which caused a compatibility problems with Pentax, Minolta, Palm and other digital device manufacturers. In turn this also caused a problem with Black's SD Cards as they are manufactured by Sandisk. Therefore, we had to release a Firmware Upgrade for the Optio 33LF to correct compatibility issues with these SD Cards. HOW TO CHECK WHAT THE CURRENT FIRMWARE VERSION: Confirm the current firmware version by pushing and "HOLDING DOWN" the "Right Arrow & Right Zoom" button located at the back of the Optio 33LF. While continuing to hold the "Right Arrow & Right Zoom" button turn the POWER on the Optio 33LF. The current firmware version will be displayed on the LCD. If the firmware version reads "Current Version 01.01.05.04" then your cameras firmware is up to date. If you do not have the current version, then please refer to the information listed below.
