The manual did say remove all power sources. I did turn the camera 'off' and 'on' after the update, but nothing happened... It looks just like a dead camera until the batteries are removed, and re-inserted!

Forums are a wonderful thing for spreading the word, aren't they???

The bad news is that calling Minolta produces a LOT of attitude. First, the first level tech has you answer what seems like a 90 page questionnaire. What USB type are you using? How much RAM have you got? How many USB peripherals? I finally said, "Look, all we're talking about here is copying two files. They were copied. Does it matter whether I have a USB scanner or how much RAM?" Then I get put through to another tech level. He seems surprised that anyone would be surprised that you have to do something different with XP like copy the files to a hard drive.

Sigh.

I should've just waited til you or some other XP user replied.

But in any event: you sure do need both at the same time.
Not true. The upgrade package without the new DIVU version includes an update to the old DIVU that allows it to work with the upgraded camera. DIVU is now version 1.20. No new bells and whistles as I understand version 2 has.

NHL, you're right about the battery stuff. Must you ALWAYS be right?

Anyway, I'm finally up and running. Living large. It seems to feel like I should have a party, but I have nothing to shoot at the moment!

MomsieurMS, and everyone...

I don't know about you guys (and gals), but I really love this newly acquired real-time histogram!
I tried some moonshots tonight even though I can't do much about the exposure, the histogram at least tell me what to expect when I go the level adjustment in Photoshop...

Default this is probably an easy fix

but after installing the D7 upgrade it reset the photo sequence back to 0001.

i suspect i'm just missing something or overlooked it in the manual - but can you set up the system to start numbering from any number? starting back at the beginning is a pain, it makes it hard to keep track of photos when i've got two with the same file name now.

Yea, upgrading clears the whole internal flash to default...

It's not easy, but you can always change to the lowest size, put the camera in UHS, and press the shutter down until the frame count increases to whatever you want...

Guys ...
It's simpler than you think , I have this problem many times I play with the " file memory on/off"

Just take a photo PICT0001 , download it to PC, rename it PICT5000, upload it back to the CF , take a shot , and voilą , the internal counter is set, the next frame is PICT5001

... and it save NHL's batteries & finger
