Obtaining Firmware Version -- answer not found @ FAQ or Search...

Here's a newb question (my apologies to jaded experts who may frequent this forum).  :D

I am trying to obtain the firmware version from an A720IS, without success (WinXP, via Windows Explorer, no card reader): there doesn't seem to be a way to paste files onto the card, either by right-clicking or Ctrl+V.

Posts I found via searching this forum appear to imply that I cannot add files to my card without an actual card reader; however, one post I found suggests that the camera's firmware is trying to "protect" my photos by disallowing the paste functionality. The FAQ does not explicitly state that I must have a reader.

Must I have a card reader and, if not, could someone please point me to directions on how to allow movement of files onto an SD card that is in the camera?

Thanks!

-Hans

A card reader is like 1-5 bucks on Ebay.
If you have any other device that uses SD cards (mp3 players, PDAs, other cameras, etc.) chances are good that some of them will also act as an usb card reader.

@gorper - you could try the utility mentioned in Wikia FAQ - Q #11, here: FAQ - CHDK Wiki

mind you, I never tried this - it claims to work on A610 and maybe other cams, so YMMV  :D
