Firmware assistance

I need to update my firmware to V350m on my Z6. I have downloaded it to the desktop on my Mac but cannot load it on to the Z6. Is there a way to connect the Z6 to the Mac and transfer the file? When I connect the Z6 it opens Photo and I am unsure what a card reader is or if I need one to accomplish this.

  1. Download F-Z6-V350M.dmg.
  2. Double-click the F-Z6-V350M.dmg icon to mount a disk image containing a folder named “Z6Update”, which in turn contains the following file:
    • Z_6_0350.bin (the camera firmware)
  3. Using a card reader, copy “Z_6_0350.bin” to a memory card that has been formatted in the camera.
    Note: Be sure to copy the firmware to the root (top-most) directory of the memory card. The camera will not recognize the new firmware if it is placed in a folder under the root directory.
  4. Insert the memory card into the camera and turn the camera on.
  5. Select Firmware version in the SETUP MENU and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the firmware update.
  6. Once the update is complete, turn the camera off and remove the memory card.
  7. Confirm that the firmware has been updated to the new version.
