I'm new here and posting for the first time. I have a Canon EOS r6 and was trying to update the firmware to version 1.5. I successfully downloaded the firmware from Canon site, but when I try to open the dmg file on my Mac, both M1 and Intel units (both have MacOS 12.01 Monterey), the dmg file will not open.
On the canon site, I had to choose MacOS 11 just to download the file. It seems that Canon released the firmware without support for MacOS 12 Monterey.
Has anyone else experienced this or has successfully update their EOS R5/R6 cameras using MacOS 12.01?
Thanks for your help.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I don't have an R6, but I was able to both download and mount Canon's eosr6-v150-mac.dmg file on my iMac Pro (Intel) with macOS 12.0.1. I did note that mounting the disk image file didn't automatically create a Finder window for it. So are you sure it's not mounting for you? Do you see a "eos6-v150-mac" icon on your desktop?
If your Mac isn't configured to show disks in Finder, go to Finder | Preferences. Then under the "General" section, ensure that "Hard Disks" is checked (enabled).
Thank you so much, its the first time that a finder window did not appear so I assumed it did not mount the disk. On my intel Mac, yes, it is on the desktop. However, on my M1 Mac, it is not. My first attempt was on my M1 Mac and when that failed, I tried it on the Intel Mac. It showed the same symptom so I did not think to look on my desktop.
Now the problem is resolved. Works on 12.01 Intel Macs only.
I'm surprised Canon does not make an effort to have this work on all Macs. The M1's have now been around for over a year.
Thanks again for your help.
I'm having the same issue for the last two firmware updates I have not been able to dismount the .dmg file. I double click the file as I normally do with a .dmg file but nothing happens. I have a macbook pro with the M1Max chip. Canon needs to make sure these files work on everyone's computers especially the new Macbooks. Now there are two updates that I can't load on my R6 camera's because of not being able to open your files. Please Canon fix your files so we can all enjoy the updates!!! Thank you.
