Put a Compact Flash card in the camera and format the card so it is devoid of data or images. Remove the Compact Flash card from the camera and put it in a card reader, attached to the computer. Copy the firmware update to the root directory (top level) of the Compact Flash card. You should see a folder called DCIM with the firmware update file sitting alongside it.
