Unable to update R5 firmware



My R5 does not recognized the firmware saved on the as card. Continue to get an error message stating “memory card containing software is required to update”. Any tips on how I can get this firmware installed? 



thanks, Tronhard!  I am using a mac and the file eosr5-v150-mac.dmg downloads without a problem.  That is as far as I can go as I can' get this file to open to find the .FIR file.  No matter how I look at this file it just will not open.  That's my issue.  Thanks.   Larry L

I'm having the same issue. Can download .dmg but not open it or view the contents.  Mac mini M1 Big Sur version 11.6 Thanks, Dee

Interestingly, I have had the same issue that a Mac will not open a DMG file: one that has nothing whatsoever to do with Canon. The issue may lie with the computer software...

cheers, TREVOR

Hi levinelaw,  I had the same issue.  Then I noticed on the left side of Finder and new entry under Locations.  The FIR rule was there along with the update procedures PDF.  Felt a little slow that I didn't see in before.

Cheers, I had nothing new appear under locations on the left in finder but when I clicked on locations it appeared in the list.
