new firmware, HPX370

Has anyone installed this yet? The information provided is vague...it's to "improve process."

Re: new firmware, HPX370

Well I took a chance and installed the new firmware. So far I have not encountered any problems, but Im still checking. I thought I would try it because I still have a copy of the previous firmware update. If I encounter any problems I will post it right away.

Re: new firmware, HPX370

Not sure why someone would expect problems from a update that's supposed to improve stability.

...Which is kind of strange in itself considering Panny camcorders are the most stable tech I ever used.

*updating anyway*

Konstantin, in other technologies this happens all the time. For example, Apple releases an update for its Mac OS, then another to fix bugs in the first update, then another....

Re: new firmware, HPX370

Anyone who had success with the new firmware using a Mac? I guess there's an incompatibility, but I don't remember how you fix it.

For me, the HPX sees the SD card well enough to format it, but not well enough to see that there's a firmware update on it.

I've read that a PC helps the situation, but I don't have one.

Re: new firmware, HPX370

I used a Mac Pro. I first formatted the SD card in the camera then inserted the card into the Mac Pro and copied the update, then back to the 370.
It worked fine.

Re: new firmware, HPX370

I guess it's a mystery. I've used the same SD card and process to install an earlier firmware update. I don't suppose it could be that I was on Snow Leopard then and Lion now?
