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.

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.
