D-lux 4 Can't copy Firmware 2.2 update to my card

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)


i have problem with copying firmware 2.2 file to my card inserted in the

D-lux4. I was trying on Windows and Mac OS X system. Getting the same

warning: Card is protected or can't be modified. I've checked card locker of

course is unlocked - before i've recorded pictures. I'm connecting using PC

option. The card is formatted inside the camera.

I have no memory card reader. My card: 4GB SD HC.

I'm waiting for any solutions. Thank you!

best regards

Welcome to the forum!


According to the firmware update instructions, you need to be able to copy the update file to the card before putting the card in the camera.


You're right to format the card in the camera, but the file must be transferred while the card is outside the camera.


If your computer doesn't have an SD card slot, you'd have to use a card reader.


Hope that helps!

Hi Howard,

thank you for so fast answer. I was wondering if i could do it without buying card reader. I read about that in other forum. Is it possible? I can't delete pictures from my card inside camera with Phase One software. Is it normal?

Thank you!

best regards

I think you're going to need a card reader.


I've got no idea what the differences are, but I don't think the camera can be used simply as a disc drive when connected to a computer.


You say you can't delete images with Capture One when the card is in the camera. I don't know whether that's normal or not, since I don't do any image manipulation with the card in the camera. Can you open images within C1 from within the camera? That's something else I would never have tried, and I wouldn't expect it to be possible.


I'm used to using a card reader, so it never occurs to me to do something in the camera. I got started using a card reader with my first digital camera some years ago and have replaced the card reader several times since then with improved versions. Now I see that a lot of computers have built-in SD slots, but mine doesn't, so I'm still happy with the external reader.


But: I'm not one of the most technically aware people on the forum, so with luck, they'll pop up with recommendations.


And: If you read about accessing the card in-camera on another forum, the people there are obviously better informed than I am. Maybe you should ask there.


It's a fascinating question, and I hope to learn something on the topic--but I'm afraid I'm at the limit of my knowledge.



Oops! I see Andy posted while I was still writing. He and I are on the same page as to the card reader.

      I have recently bought an SL2-S and at beginning I'll mainly use with manual focus (M) Lenses.
      However, I really like the 90-280mm tele and I might buy second hand
      A couple of questions about autofocus:
      in all honesty, how good is the SL2-s autofocus when compared to say a Nikon Z6 (the camera I own)? same question as above for most advanced autofocus features, auto-focus tracking, face recognition etc. If am not mistaken, a massive firmware update for the SL2-s with significant improvements for the autofocus system was announced. Has it been released? In the 2.0 I have not seen much about the autofocus Many thanks in advance for your answers.

      I just brought a D2 but I have a problem. When I turn on the D2 without the SD card all the function is good but once I inserted the SD card the shutter speed button is out of control. When I press down the shutter speed button it take around 10-15 seconds to shoot a photo and each 10-15 seconds it will automatically shoot another photo. And so wired when I look at the photo info in my PC it shows it is took by D3 not D2 but every time I reboot the camera it will allow me to press the shutter speed button again ... here is photo that I check my firmware in D2 ... anyone know how to fix it ?

      The Calonox View usb-c port supports charging and the transfer of data (pictures, videos).
      It works with usb-c to usb-a cables with chargers or computers which have an usb-a port.
      However, the port does not work with an usb-c to usb-c cable. I tested multiple cables and
      different chargers and computers. Always the same negative outcome.
      The Calonox View device comes with an strange usb-c to usb-a/video-chinch splitter cable.
      This cable works - but obviously for charging and data transfer per usb-a only.
      I can't find the reason for this unfortunate limitation - especially considering that
      usb-c shall replace usb-a ports.
      Has someone a solution?
      Also, I can't figure out how to update the Calonox View firmware - nor did I find any
      information regarding firmwares for this device on Leica's pages. In my case, the
      installed firmware is v5.0 but I'm wondering how Leica want's to maintain such a
      high-end device without software updates? Has anybody a solutionn to this problem?
