I discovered that my EOS D30 (yes, I really mean the 2000 vintage D30) had a firmware upgrade, but for the life of me, despite going to almost any Canon support site on the planet, I cannot download same. Can you folks on Canon support help with that?
Solved! Go to Solution.

I appreciate your effort. However, I have been to that site and activated that link. Try it.. It takes you to a site in Japan, in Japanese and when I tried to progress it further I got dumped back in the global site again. Dead end.

I see. Then try this: http://web.canon.jp/imaging/dc/D30_1030-e.exe
Also dead but copy/paste it into Web Archive that saves a lot of stuff from Internet. You will find the firmware there. I downloaded it, extracted it and the file size is 872,189 bytes as it should be.
* Windows : Size in Property (872,189 bytes)
* Mac OS : Size in Information (872,189 bytes)

Increases the reliability of USB communication when the EOS D30 and a compatible PC or Macintosh computer are connected with the USB interface. The most noticeable improvement occurs during Interval Timer Shooting and Timer Shooting using Remote Capture.
EOS D30 Firmware Update Ver. 18.104.22.168 Only has one "bug" fix. Is this why you want to upgrade the firmware?

Thanks for your assistance with this! I must admit I have never previously known of Web Archive, but I shall keep it in mind for future reference.
Having gone to the effort and cost to get Canon to combine two D30 bodies together - 1st was unused but damaged body, the second not working but good body, I thought I may as well go the whole hog and update it to the max.
