Saw these two threads posted at dpreview. Don't ask me. I'm a coward when it comes to these things. Then again, I'm still amazed that after 2 years my Ds still works perfectly.



I would be interested if anyone can make a backup of existing firmware while tinkering with the service menu.

Thats cool!

If you set the CARDDOOR OPEN to EN you can use the camera with the SD door open.
Quite a few times I've not noticed the door was open and missed a shot because when its open the camera turns off or goes into a sleep mode.
Don't take out the SD card though!!!
Just tried the SWITCH TEST which tests all the buttons.
Good to see they are all working, lol :-)

There's heaps of cool stuff on those menus, a lot of which I have no clue about, but I'm sure someone will figure it out.
