unzip the file, then drop the firmware file (7D000203.FIR) onto a formatted card, ensure your batteries are full charged, turn on the camera and go to menu, look for firmware menu click update the camera will see the file and install, very simple doesnt take too long.

Thanks for that, i have done it now, the problem was that Adobe reader was corrupt, i installed it again and managed to open the instructions.
