    Problem Solved. I'm an idiot.

    I've still got the original firmware on my 50d. when i tried updating it, i formatted the card with my camera, then used my printer (w/ built in card reader) as a card reader to put the 1.3xxx (whatever) firmware update file on the card. When i plug the card back into the camera and go to the firmware update through the menu, it gives me a warning that there is no new firmware to update to. I plug in the USB to the camera, open it up as if it were any other drive, and the file is still sitting there...

    Suggestions? where am i going wrong?


    *edit: Idiot plus camera settings = lose. Better state of mind + closer attention = win.

    file goes on the root

    file must be unzipped first

    not rocket science

    What's the point in being able to create folders in the 50d, if you can't transfer the files to your comp in said folders? instead it just deletes EVERYTHING else you've got on your camera... figured they would have fixed that. :sad2:

    I'll give it a shot, thanks. Last time i tried shooting with multiple folders, i lost about 4 hours worth of work doing product photography, which i hate.
