    Default Need Help Updating Firmware

    I just purchased an E-1, I already own a Pany L1, but I am having trouble updating software. I have the camera connected and the software still does not see camera. I have used both USB and Firewire on PC w. Windows XP. I want to Update to 1.4 and update 35-100 lens. Need help. Thanks in advance.

    Fboyd -

    Do you have your E-1 in Control mode? Is it just the software that doesn't see your camera or is it your computer too? Also, which Olympus software are you using? Master or Studio?

    When I first tried connecting my Oly DSLR to the computer it wouldn't see it because it wasn't in Storage mode. I remember the E-1 is different though. It's gotta be in Control mode.

    Regards,
    Eric

    Hi fboyd,

    Every time that you add a new 4/3rds camera, you need to run the driver setup again. The driver needs to be initialized for the new camera. This won't affect your existing L1 setup.

    With an E-1 you also have to rerun the driver setup whenever you switch from using firewire to USB or visa versa. The driver expects an E-1 to always use the same communication system as before.

    By the way, Olympus Studio allows you to have multiple E-1 cameras connected at the same time for tethered shooting. It's a cool feature.
    Best regards, FL

    Pursuing excellence...

    Good point FL.

    Here. This weblink to Oly Japan has the driver you may need. Check it out when you have a chance. It's the OLYMPUS Studio/ OLYMPUS Viewer driver for Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2).
    http://www.olympus.co.jp/en/support/...ftware/#driver

    This link explains how to install it.

    Hope that all helps.

    I got the camera to update the software, but I might have made a mistake. I was prompted to update to ver. 1.1 first and I thought I did but it installed the 1.4 ver. Now I can't seem to load the update for the 35-100 lens. Do I really need this update?

    If the lens is attached to the camera, when you do the update, it will tell you the lens version and if it needs updating.

    The same with the flash units (FL-36 and FL-50). Attach and update. You can do the lens, body and flash at the same time.

    With the E-1, you want to be at 1.4

    In addition to the previous posts: on my Xindows XP SP2 system, I have to disable the Firewall to run the E-1 firmware upgrade. Not sure this is true for all Windows systems. . .

    Cheers!
