Just the same....... do not know what happens with my A620cam...

1) full batteries
2) Reset config
3) English as language
4) Format SD (low one)
5) Inserted SD into Linux laptop
6) Copied files......... checked md5sums for: original file, SD file, file at windows..... all md5 checksums are identical.....
7) unmounted SD...... mounted again SD and tested checksums again.... all is OK.
8) inserted SD into cam....... SD card is unlocked.
9) tested current firm version..... 1.00E
10) upgrade firmware.......
11) BEEP start as LED quickly alternates between green/orange.....
12) screen shows "Updating now!!!! Do not turn power off."
13) 4-5 or even 20 minutes later, it is just still the same........ so I decide to turn off cam, not pressing buttons because they are "dead", but extracting batteries.

Well..... my A620 cam is an anti-upgrade-firmware one.

YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!  AT LEAST I COULD DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1) full batteries
2) Reset config
3) English as language
4) Format SD (low one)...... but not 80X full speed SD, but 32Mb standard SD included originally with canon cam!!!!!!!
AFTER FORMAT, I DID TAKE A PHOTO and left it there.
5) Inserted SD into Linux laptop
6) Copied files......... checked md5sums for: original file, SD file, file at windows..... all md5 checksums are identical.....
7) unmounted SD...... mounted again SD and tested checksums again.... all is OK.
Cool inserted SD into cam....... SD card is unlocked.
9) tested current firm version..... 1.00E
10) upgrade firmware.......
11) NO BEEP, and very SLOW blinking of LED between orange and green... not as before, which was very quick blinking.
12) screen shows "Updating now!!!! Do not turn power off."
13) 40 seconds later, cam is autoshutdown, and now I am waiting for 5 minutes to test.

THANKS SO MUCH...... I think it was a SD card related problem. Previously, I was using a 80X 1Gb trascend.

XDXDXDXD
