Prepare the storage media

This section describes how to upgrade using a Memory Stick/Memory Stick Duo.

If you are using an SD memory card, CompactFlash card, or xD-Picture Card, please replace Memory Stick/Memory Stick Duo with your using memory card in the following explanations .

Prepare an initialized (formatted) Memory Stick/Memory Stick Duo. For details about how to initialize (format) it, please see the Operating Instructions of your digital camera.

Note

  • Please use a Memory Stick/Memory Stick Duo that has been initialized (formatted) by your digital camera, or initialized (formatted) by the dedicated Memory Stick formatting software "Memory Stick Formatter".
  • Please use an SD memory card, CompactFlash card or xD-Picture Card that has been initialized (formatted) by your digital camera.
  • We do not recommend initializing (formatting) with a computer, as the DPF-D92 may not recognize the storage media, depending on the type of initialization format.
    If you have no choice but to use a storage media that has been initialized with a computer, copy a JPEG image file and check to see if it is displayed correctly on the DPF-D92.
  • The firmware upgrade may fail if the Memory Stick/Memory Stick Duo contains other files as well as the upgrade file. You should therefore always use a Memory Stick/Memory Stick Duo that has just been initialized (formatted).

  1. Insert the initialized (formatted) Memory Stick/Memory Stick Duo into the Memory Stick slot on your computer.
  2. Open the D92_V205 folder on your desktop, and copy the upgrade file inside it to the Memory Stick/Memory Stick Duo.
