Can't find mine so I can't upgrade. Tried the cheap ones on Ebay but camera does not recognize the computer when attached. Anyone had a spare they want to sell? Loan?
Thanks

But that won't work for the firmware upgrade. You need a direct connection to the computer.
Are you sure? I'm no expert on this, but I seem to recall an option to load the FW onto a card, then upload it to the camera...though I could be mistaken.

Doesn't work - which is IMHO a very poor choice by Olympus, but that's the (only) way it works with Olympus m4/3 cameras (no idea whether other Olys update by the more conventional method).
