    Default Where do I get software to update E-1 firmware ? [Olympus Master]

    I had a E300 w/ the OM s/w to update the firmware.
    I traded off the 300 and uninstalled the s/w.
    Now I have aquired a E1 but it didnt come w/ the s/w.
    Is there anyplace I can download the s/w so I can update my firmware?

    I was looking for a free download, does anyone have a freeware program that will do this?

    What you need for upgrades and information is Olympus Viewer.

    Maybe I am just not real smart or something, but isnt all of that s/w simply updates? I do not have any s/w on my pc to update. also as far as I know I need the viewer or master s/w in order to install firmware, so none of that does me any good. If I could find a full version of OM or Viewer then I could install the updates from that website.

    Olympus.com was the first place I looked btw.

    To update the firmware on the E-1 you need either Viewer or Studio (not Master). You can download a trial version of Studio from here - http://www.olympus.co.jp/en/support/...oftware/#PATCH

    This is a time-limited version, but as there are unlikely to be any additional firmware updates for the E-1 it doesn't matter. I'd already tried it, so when I got my E-1 (firmware version 1.0!) I had to install the trial on another computer. At least I learned about internet connection sharing in Windows .

    If you use XP you need the updated driver too - follow the links from that webpage.

    Current version for the E-1 is 1.4

    Graham, thanks. I saw the trial version but was hoping for a full version. I will go ahead and use it though.

    Viewer is not freeware or shareware and cannot be freely distributed. It is against the software license agreement to give it away, which is why you cannot download Viewer anywhere, only its updates. Viewer should have been part of an E-1 purchase whether new or used.

    The best way to get a copy of Viewer is to contact Olympus, give them your E-1 serial number, and ask them to send you a replacement CD.
