          mSetup Firmware Update Tool

           mSetup can also be used to format memory cards, and most importantly, update the cameras firmware.  By clicking on the 'Tools' button in the main window, a second window will open.  This window gives the ability to download firmware updates, and then install them by selecting the desired firmware, and clicking on 'Install'.  mSetup will then give on screen instructions during the firmware update process.  If, for some reason, mSetup can not be used to update the firmware, then there is always the option of manually updating the firmware.
