Re: cant install firmware update using hdmi

A HDMI cable is used for displaying your camera's footage on a TV or projector, it's not used for transferring files and is incapable of doing so.  To transfer files you would need to use a USB cable.

 

If you are trying to preform a manual update, you can find instructions on how to do that here:
