This bulletin was created to inform you of a firmware update for the P-4000 multimedia viewer.
The updated firmware provides certain upgrades as outlined below.
Description of Change:
The firmware has been updated to version 04.51.
Reason:
The firmware provides the following upgrades:
1. The new firmware provides support for 2GB SD memory cards.
2. Corrects a rotation issue that prevents JPEG images taken on PENTAX *ist D digital
cameras from being rotated more than once. The rotation issue may also occur on other
digital cameras that store large amounts of data (i.e. image thumbnail and other
proprietary information) in the file header, such as the PENTAX *ist DL and Canon EOS
10D.
3. When sending a print job with a selected paper size that is not supported by the
attached printer, the viewer will prompt the user to select a supported paper size.
4. Fixes an issue that occurs when the total replay time on an ASF movie file is displayed.
When the seconds segment is set to zero (:00), the hour segment would be displayed
incorrectly. The hour segment now displays correctly.
