I did it a few minutes ago and boy am I glad. I have one tip--which might be old news by now. In the "Instructions for updating the Leica M8 Firmware" under item 6. it says: "Confirm the prompt that appears in the monitor as to whether you want to update the Firmware on the camera to version 1.xx." This is not quite enough. After following instructions 1 to 5, the question as to whether you want to update appears in the monitor. One box says "No" and the other box says "Yes" Do this: On the disk to the right of the monitor press the arrow that is furthest right. This will move you from "No" to "Yes." Next press "Set" (to the left of the monitor). A bar will appear at the bottom of the monitor that will show the progress of your download. When it is finished, turn off your camera and then turn it back on as directed in item 7.
