EOS-1DS Mark II looking for firmware 1.1.6

I just bought a pristine 1Ds MkII from an eBay seller out of NM. 

The camera's firmware is 1.1.1 and I'd really like to upgrade the firmware to 1.1.6 so that the camera will recognize larger capacity memory cards.

I've searched far and wide. Those searches led me to a few links for the firmware but those links are no longer active. If you can provide me with an active link where I can download firmware version 1.1.6 I would be most grateful.

Greetings,

Since the Camera was released in 2005, Canon USA no longer hosts firmware for the camera.

Canon Support for EOS-1Ds Mark II | Canon U.S.A., Inc.

You can try support, but not sure if they can provide it.  Also take a look at Canon HK.  Someone here may have it to share also.

Hello Peter, 

Happy New Year! 

I have just got an EOS 1Ds mark 2, but found it has an older firmware version when trying to use a >2GB card.

Could you please help with f/w v1.1.6?

Thank you so much in advance!

Nam

Sure. You have PM.

I thank you for your assistance. However all the links that I found even on Canon USA, Europe and HK are inactive or the page no longer exists.

The camera will read a 32GB  SanDisk Extreme Pro CF card with out issue. I really don't need the images written to two cards simultaneously. 

So the one 32GB CF card will have to do.

I just checked and I have all the firmware updated for the EOS R, RP, 5D MkII and 40D

Seems you didn't get the firmware update for 1Ds II I sent you.

Good post dpsaiz, I took recently acquired a 1Dsmark ii, it's firmware version is 1.1.4. 

My query is do you need to update each firmware update to reach the final 1.1.6. or does the 1.1.6. firmware version contain the previous updates to (for example the 1.1.5. update, if there was one?).

I'd appreciate the advice, and kindly ask Peter if you could send me the firmware too, thankyou.

Best regards to everyone here, I've just joined while searching for help on the topic 👍

You can always update to the most recent firmware.

I tried to send you a PM, but I just get an error message.
