I'm trying to upgrade my new D7000 firmware using my Mac, which has the latest version of OS X.

The instructions say move the firmware.bin file to the SD card, then put the card into the camera, then use the menu settings to "firmware". But after I do all that, I'm not getting the option tin the camera to upgrade the firmware.

Anybody else with this problem?

One vague thing in the instructions is that the SD card should be formatted before starting out. Does that mean formatted in the camera or formatted by the Mac's disk image program. I actually tried both (it probably means format in the Nikon camera) and neither did the job.
