Pentax K20D firmware 1.04 - fixes SD card Write errors

I suddenly started having problems with write errors when I bought new 8 and 16GB class 6 and 10 cards. I could take about 25 RAW file photos then write errors solid fail. I returned the cards, got new ones (Kingston and SANDisk) but the problem persisted.

"Bleah" says I, thinking that I'd have to call Pentax for warranty service and be without the camera for several weeks.

Fortunately, I read a Pentax forum post on the same problem that linked to the fix. After I installed v 1.04, the problem went away.

Changes to V1.04

The following content have been improved in Version 1.04
Improved stability of recording image for some SDHC Memory card.

Firmware download link here;

This update has been around since 2008 and posted here then, you ought to check more often

Went to download it, and said do you want to overwrite.... then looked and file date was 2008.

And that is something I do with software driven hardware I get that is out a while right off is check for up dates right away.

ASUS Transformer Tab hasn't been out all that long but out of the box, had two available firmware updates to take it from Android 3.1 to 3.2 and a device specific update.

And heck a year into Win 7 new laptop had an hour+ of updating to do even on broadband.

I bought the camera from B&H or Adorama new in 2010 at firmware 1.01 and upgraded to 1.02 last summer, so it's really weird that it's been around that long. Also, the fix is for the latest implementation of SD HD cards which hasn't been around that long.

Who knows, maybe they have a time machine...

May have been new, but it was well out of production then, replaced by the K5 and Kx/r's.

Checked my 20D and it is 1.04, the update file on my HDD is dated OOOPPPS..... have all three updates and looked at wrong one but 1.04 is still dated 4/23/2010 over a year and a half ago.

And think there was no 1.02. Pentax site lists 1.00, 1.01, 1.03 as vers the most recent 1.04 updates, which correspond the the 3 update update files I have.

I think 1.02 messed something else up and was pulled pretty quick.

Yeah that's what I recall too. In fact while it was still in beta I think....
But the fix was major enough they gave it the 1.03 name instead. Plus any with the beta 1.02 ver, cam would see it as an update.
