600D firmware update ignores ML install

Issue #1886 invalid

created an issue

The camera is not recognized ML 2.3 on the card. I have followed the instructions. I removed ML because I was experiencing menu failure. I thought updated everything redundantly would fix it, but now the camera will not see ML on the card at all.

i did: - format to remove ML - updated firmware (1.0.2 --> 1.0.2) for the sake of it - low level format - removed card, loaded ML to card, re-insert card - update firmware received "card with firmware required to update" - added the file - updated firmware camera skipped ML altogether and updated canon 1.0.2 no ML install - low level format - added .fir to card then added ML to card - update firmware camera skipped ML, updated canon 1.0.2

    im using an sdhc 32gb extreme class 10 card that has worked perfectly for over a year on 2 versions of ML. all has been great so far.

    thank you

    i did follow exactly. I did it again just now.

    Settings are cleared. I formatted the card properly and added ML 2.3 to the card. I selected to update firmware and Camera asked for "memory card with firmware required to update". So, I added CCF11102.fir to the card but Camera proceeds to update 1.0.2 --> 1.0.2 successfully and ignores ML.

    Canon code not recognizing a FIR can't be considered a bug in ML (also given the number of successful installs).

    Try to record a video with exactly what steps you followed, and show the exact card contents (from a terminal if possible).

    ok. i'm sorry. i realize this may sound ridiculous to you, but I was under the impression, from my last attempt to resolve the menu crash that I was now posting in the right place. this is maybe the fifth time i have ever used a forum for anything in my life. i'm thirty years old.

    i did a reinstall of the previous version of ML and the menu problem is fixed. it would be nice to run 2.3. in my world, the problem i am experiencing is indeed a bug, preventing me from using the firmware. if the old version installs, why not this one?

    i guess what i'm saying is, i don't know what else to call it besides a bug.

    sorry for my naivety. i will try to learn more things.

    all the best, adam

    sorry a1ex,

    i was not able to install the version of 2.3 i downloaded today.

    i was able to install a version of 2.3 from July 23, 2012.

    thank you very much for this software. i am extremely grateful and had I any money, would donate. hopefully this movie works out...

    cheers, adam
