You need to go to Nikon USA and download the firmware. It is version 2.01 and there are both A and B updates included in the download.

http://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/16094/session/L2F2LzEvdGltZS8xMzI2MTEyMTEyL3NpZC9RdTJ0dUlOaw%3D%3D

Here are the steps provided by Nikon - I'll add my comments in CAPS.


Basic Upgrade instructions: for detailed instructions, see pdf files below.

YOU MUST START THE UPDATE WITH A FRESH OR NEARLY FRESH BATTERY. IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO HAVE A STRONG ENOUGH BATTERY THAT THE CAMERA DOES NOT SHUT DOWN FOR ANY REASON UNTIL THE FIRMWARE INSTALLATION IS COMPLETE.

1. Download and expand the firmware files - THE FILES ARE ZIPPED AND JUST NEED TO BE EXTRACTED
2. Format an approved CF card in the camera (do not use a Microdrive card to perform this update)
3. Connect Camera to computer (in MSC USB mode) or use a CF Card Reader (do not use a Lexar Jump Shot USB cable to perform this update)
4. Copy to the top level of the card the downloaded "A firmware" file COPY IT TO THE ROOT - DO NOT PUT IT IN A FOLDER. THE CAMERA KNOWS WHAT TO DO AND WILL NOT PROCESS THE FIRMWARE IF HANDLED INCORRECTLY.
5. Disconnect camera from computer
6. Update the firmware from the "Setup" menu - THIS WORKS PRETTY SEAMLESSLY - JUST SELECT THE A FIRMWARE YOU WANT TO UPDATE AND FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS. BUT YOU ONLY INSTALL ONE FIRMWARE VERSION AT A TIME.
7. Follow the camera's on-screen menus
8. Repeat steps 2 through 7 using the "B Firmware" HAVING DONE THIS ONCE, IT IS MUCH EASIER THE SECOND TIME FOR THE B FIRMWARE
9. Re-format Card

After completion, check the firmware and make sure both A and B are updated.




The good news for newer cameras is they have combined the firmware updates into a single update without having to separately update A and B.
