PMW300 Firmware Upgrade

Has anyone managed to upgrade to Version 1.12. I cant get the camera to see the .bin file on the card, just says no file.

Am I missing something here.

Regards, Tim.

Brent, make sure you download the file from the UK Sony site. The Canada one does not work. Download and just put the .Bin file into your SXS card. You dont need to extract the bin file.

Working for me now.

Regards, Tim.

You reformatted your card then dropped the above named file onto it?

Make sure that your card is formatted in the camera to Fat32. This will mean that your computer will be able to write to it with the firmware upgrade file.
