When I try to upload the new firmware 1.05 for my K5iis all I keep getting is 1.04.
I know what I'm doing as I've uploaded many updates to firmware before and have just uploaded the version 1.15 for my K5 OK.
Has anyone else had this problem????
I've tried 5 times and it just keeps putting V1.04 on my card.
HELP HELP HELP.
cheers vIC.

I have the same problem with the Q firmware update from 1.12 to 1.13. All the links on all the Pentax/Ricoh sites link to 1.12 even though they refer to 1.13. I raised it with tech support and have just had an email to say it has now been 'escalated' and I will be informed when there is an answer.

This happened to me too... and many others!
Just right click the link and save it, then paste it into the address bar of your browser, changing the file name from 104 to 105 and it should then point to the correct files. Worked for me!

Sorry Vic, thought you'd be using the official Ricoh Imaging link, see below:

http://www.ricoh-imaging.co.jp/english/support/digital/k-5_2_s.html

Scroll to the bottom and on the button for the K5IIs firmware, right click on it and select "Copy Link Location". Right click on the browesr address bar, or open a new tab, and then right click and paste the copied link. Look at the file name along on the right of the link and it'll probably say 104, just edit it to 105 and it should then take you to the correct firmware.

When I right click on the K5iis Download there is no "Copy Link Location". Vic.

Thanks eenymac.(strange name that) now all done and dusted. I looked on the American site and they have had problems too.
Utility 4, K5, and K5iis all up to date.
CHEERS Vic.
