Customer Question

My gh4 has firmware 2.4, downloaded and tried to upgrade to firmware 2.5 - but when I turn the camera on with the bin file in the root, then hit the playback button(to start the upgrade) it just shows the pictures from playback mode. I've formatted my 64 gig cards, tried it again, no luck help!

Hmm, the only thing I'm seeing that could possibly be causing the problem is the 64 GB cards. Try a smaller card. When you get up to 64GB, it can cause problems. 32GB is pushing it, but there is no chance of size being an issue if it is less than 32GB. Give that a shot, and tell me if it goes through. It sounds like you're doing everything else right, assuming you're following the update instructions carefully.

None of this has resolved my issue! Do you HAVE a GH4? I've read of others having the same issue if you google it you'll see.
Any other ideas? I'm stuck on 2.4 and can NOT upgrade to 2.5 like others have.

Have you tried a smaller card? The 64GB cards are run by software, the 32GB cards are built into your hardware to get them to work.
