Before downloading this update, you should check the current firmware revision of your camera.

To check the firmware revision, hold down the flash button while turning on the camera. If the firmware revision number is less than 2.00.24 (for example: 2.00.23, 2.00.19, or 2.00.14 or earlier), you should install this update.

Version 2.00.24 firmware includes the following fixes:

    Contains a safety fix for battery-charging.
    Improves TV display quality in slide show mode.
    Fixes an issue with camera displaying "Bad data access address" error when transferring image to a PC/Mac.
    Fixes an issue with some files being corrupted when using SD cards.
Once the file has finished downloading, it should decompress to C:\Program Files\COL6942. In this directory, there are 8 folders specific to the 8 languages supported by this update. Please carefully read the "readme.html" document in a language appropriate sub-folder. It contains the instructions on how to update your camera's firmware.

NOTE: The instructions in the readme.html file need to be followed precisely in order for your camera's firmware to be successfully updated. Once the firmware has been successfully updated, the COL6942.exe file as well as the C:\Program Files\COL6942 directory (and all subdirectories) can be safely removed.
