Need help updating the firmware to most current version on HPX2700 Varicam

I've followed the directions to a tee.. tried multiple SDHC cards to load the firmware and no matter what i do the "update" option is not showing up in the P2 Menu. I've tried a 69mb, 32gb, and 16gb SDHC card. Ive called Panasonic tech support and even they are baffled.. what could I be doing wrong? Is there a specific model of SD card I need for the camera to recognize the firmware?

I figured it out and its a stupid reason. I unziped the panasonic file from a windows folder and prepared the cards that way and the varicam let me update.
