p.1 #1 · D800e firmware update problem


I'm having a problem updating the firmware on my D800e. Downloaded the correct file, ran the executable file and transferred the bin file to my SD card. In the menu, I click on update but when I highlight the YES it is highlighted in red rather than yellow and does not do anything when I press ok. Also tried it with a CF card with same result. Called Nikon but they couldn't figure out what was wrong.

Format the card in your computer. Then put the BIN file on. It needs to be in the top (root) directory to be recognized.

Beware, the BIN files are different for the D800 and D800E. Make sure you have the right file.

I got it to work now. I put a freshly charged battery in and formatted the SD card before transferring the bin file onto it. I also pressed the "OK" button on left lower corner rather than on the joystick on right upper corner. Thanks everyone.

I had just over a 50% charge in battery and when I tried to load the software it told me battery was to low,, inserted fresh battery and it ran fine,, download only takes a minute but guess they want no chance of low battery when doing this effort,,

It's like formatting a card - it wants you to press the real OK button instead of the set button or whatever other button most of us use as an OK button. That is why it was highlighted in red.

1.006 is the lens update. Make sure you downloaded the correct firmware for your camera. D800 Only works on DD800 and not D800E. I notice your profile shows a D300. This update will NOT work on a D300.

Make sure you format the card in the computer. This leaves only the top (root) directory. The BIN file must be in this directory.

When you download the file, double click it and it will set up 3 files on your computer. Copy only the BIN file to your card.
