    Upgrading the D70 Firmware
    —Windows—




    Thank you for choosing a Nikon product. This guide describes how to upgrade the camera firmware for the D70.
    If you are not confident that you can perform the update successfully, the update can be performed by a Nikon service representative.

    The D70 has two sets of firmware, A and B, which must be updated separately. After updating the A firmware, repeat steps 4–5, below, to upgrade the B firmware.

    Important

    The D70 may be damaged if power is interrupted or camera controls are operated during the update. Do not turn the camera off, remove or disconnect the power source, or operate camera controls during the update. If the update is not completed successfully and the camera becomes inoperable, take the D70 to a Nikon-authorized service representative for inspection.


    1. Get ready

    To upgrade the firmware for the D70, you will need:

    • A D70 digital camera
    • A UC-E4 USB cable or a CompactFlash card reader
    • One of the following power sources:
    — An EH-5 AC adapter
    — A fully-charged EN-EL3 rechargeable battery
    • A Nikon-approved CompactFlash memory card that has been formatted in the D70 (do not use Microdrive cards).
    • The Nikon Guide to Digital Photography for the D70

    2. Check the current firmware version for the D70

    1 Turn the camera on.

    2 Press the MENU button and select Firmware Ver. in the setup menu.





    3 Two firmware versions (A and B) will be displayed. Before the update, the A version will be 1.00, the B version 1.01.



    4 Turn the camera off.

    3.Download and extract the new firmware

    1 Create a new folder on the hard disk and name it as desired.





    Position the mouse cursor over an empty space on the desktop and click the right mouse button. Select New > Folder to create a new folder on the desktop. Name the folder as desired.

    2 Download the file "D70fw101.zip" to the new folder.
    Position the mouse cursor over the "Click here to Agree to Licenses and Start Download" link on the download site (above) and click the right mouse button. Select Save target to file and choose the folder created in step 3 -1. The file "D70fw101.zip" will be downloaded to the new folder.

    3 Extract the firmware update.
    In Windows XP, right click on the "D70fw101.zip" folder and choose "Extract All..."
    Other versions of Windows - Click Here for general instructions on downloading and installing.

    If installation is completed successfully, the folder “D70 Update” will be created in the new folder. The folder “D70 Update” will contain the following files and folders:

    firmware:
    Folder containing camera firmware

    firmware.bin:
    Camera firmware (in “firmware” folder)


    If installation is completed successfully, the folder "D70Update" will be created in the new folder. The folder "D70Update" will contain the following files:


    AD700101.bin: Camera A firmware
    BD700102.bin: Camera B firmware



    "D70Update" folder

    4. Copy the firmware to the memory card

    The firmware can be copied to the camera memory card either by connecting the computer directly to the D70 using the USB cable, or by removing the memory card from the camera and inserting it in a CompactFlash card reader.

    Important

    Only one of the two sets of firmware (A or B) can be updated at a time. Do not copy both sets of firmware to the memory card.



    Direct USB Connection

    1 Turn the camera off and insert the formatted memory card into the D70.
    For information on formatting memory cards, see the Nikon Guide to Digital Photography with the D70.


    2 Set the USB option in the camera setup menu to Mass Storage.
    For information on the USB option and connecting the camera to a computer, see the Nikon Guide to Digital Photography with the D70.


    3 Turn the camera off and connect the USB cable as shown below.



    UC-E4 USB cable

    4 Turn the camera on. *
    • If Nikon View is installed

    Nikon Transfer will start automatically and display the message, “Camera or card contains no images. Nikon View will now terminate.” Click OK to exit Nikon Transfer.

    • If PictureProject is installed
    PictureProject Transfer will start automatically. Click Cancel.

    * Under Windows XP, a Removable Disk dialog similar to that shown at right may be displayed. Select Take no action and click OK.



    5 Copy the firmware to the memory card.

    5-1. Copy the firmware to the removable disk corresponding to the camera.

    When the camera is connected and turned on, a new "Removable Disk" icon will be displayed in My Computer. Copy "AD700101.bin" (A firmware) or "BD700102.bin" (B firmware) from the "D70Update" folder to this removable disk.

    Be sure to copy the firmware to the root directory of the memory card. The camera will not recognize the new firmware if it is placed in a folder under the root directory.
