"Updating D700 Firmware A 1.02 B 1.02 by first time updater" Wed 20-Jun-12 03:28 AM by Robert44
Hi all - My D700 has firmware version A:1.02/B:1.02 and I would like to update it to the current firmware version, A:1.03/B:1.02.
Unfortunately, I have never done it before and I am mindful of the following comment on Nikon's site, "Please read the instructions carefully as firmware updates are permanent and cannot be 'undone' outside of the service department."
After I format the memory card and access it via a compact card reader linked to my computer I see the following two items: 1. a folder whose name is "DCIM"; and 2. a file whose name is "NIKON001.DSC".
It is the following instruction from Nikon that I am not certain about: "4. Copy the D7000103.BIN file to the top level of the card the downloaded firmware .BIN file"
As I understand it, after I complete the copy, then in the memory card I should see the following (see the attachment "Memory card after updated with firmware update software"): 1. a folder whose name is "DCIM"; and 2. a file whose name is "NIKON001.DSC". 3. a file whose name is "D700_0103.bin"
I feel a little silly about asking this question, but given Nikon's caution quoted above I really do not want to "muck" this up.
Can someone please either confirm that my understanding laid out above is correct or provide me with the correct guidance?
