    Usually look in your manual or the update should have a txt file or similar in there with detailed instructions

    But...in general download the files onto your CF or SD card, stick it in the camera, and go to the part in your menu system that initiates the firmware update (or it may just launch automatically) and hey presto...you have a Nikon

    Phooey Kiwi I dont want a Nikon........ I think I have found the page for the firmware....does it matter if I have used the sd card in the previous camera? It just tells me it needs to be formatted....and blank so I better delete the images??

    Pentax firmware downloads come with a ReadMe file that explains the process.
