Dear Sirs: I just bought a D700. I verify that the firmware version is the 1.01. I follow the instructions given but when I go to the firmware version there isn´t any update choice. What am I doing wrong? I have a Lexar Professional 4 GB 300x UDMA card. Thanks in advance.
Thanks for your quick reply. Update done. I hadn´t a full charged battery but I was connected via USB to the PC. So I put a new charged battery, disconnect from the PC and everything was OK. Thanks again.
When updating firmware you must follow the instructions to the letter, and this goes for any type of technology not just cameras. Messing up here can cost you dearly as it may require sending your camera in for repair. Nikon specifically states that the camera must have a fully charged battery OR be connected to their AC adapter. It goes without saying that no other connections should be made during the update process, and never, ever, under any circumstances, should you turn the camera off during the update process.
