DMC-ZS1 - battery

I've read that to use 3rd. party batteries I must download/down grade to ver 1.1 of the Panasonic software. I found the software, downloaded it to my computer, extracted it, copied it to the sd chip, put the sd chip into the camera, set the camera to the little green arrow to view pictures, and turned it on; the camera does not see anything to respond to...I've gone over this several dozen times. What am I doing wrong?

Thank You

Re: DMC-ZS1 - battery

Welcome to Pixalo Suzanne

After putting your SD card in the camera you will have to go through the menu system to find the firmware update section. This will most likely be in the set up or system menu. There ought to be instructions on the Panasonic web site to tell you how to do this.

However, I would caution you that you will loose the functions and modifications that the firmware from v1.1 provides, and you will have to consider if that is worth saving 30.

As a matter of interest, can you tell us where you found the v1.1 firmware, as other people have also been looking for it for the same reason as you.
