Step 3. Copy the firmware file onto an SD Memory Card.

Preparation of the SD Memory Card

Please prepare a formatted SD Memory Card with free space more than the self-extracted file.
When formatting the SD Memory Card, all data, including protected data, will be erased and can not be recovered. Please make sure to back up your important data so you don't loose it.

Insert your formatted SD Memory card to your SD slot of your PC.
If your PC does not have an SD slot, use an external USB SD Reader/Writer device.

Copy the file into the Root directory (*1) of the SD Memory Card.
(*1) Root directory = The first or top-most directory in the hierarchy.
