Re: EX3 Firmware upgrade

tried that too - start again. I tried pointing to the inf driver in the 120 package toot - but it seemed not to help much. Where do you have the install package - maybe it's best in the C:/ root. - I had it on the desktop and at 3 or 4 try it started correctly and made the connection to the camera.

Re: EX3 Firmware upgrade

Thanks Bo, I made several attempts to connect, the unzipped file is in c drive downloads. The yellow light on the computer flashes as if trying to connect. Have now given up for the day, will sleep on it and try again tomorrow.!!!!

Re: EX3 Firmware upgrade

Hi Mick - this may sound like a silly question (and apologies if it does!) but I am presuming that you are connecting the EX3 to the computer via the service USB port (which is hidden beneath the shoulder pad) and not the USB port on the outside of the camera?

Re: EX3 Firmware upgrade

Hi Bo and Martin.

Well its taken me 11 months to pluck up courage to have another go. Having been directed to the correct usb port by Martin and Bo's excellent step step instructions the update proceeded smoothly. I gather there may now be a another update to the 1.2 somewhere but I'm sticking to the 1.2. Many thanks to you all.
