I downloaded a firmware update file from Nikon for D150. It was a compressed file that when I right click I have no option to open the file. I had already reformatted the card in the camera, but that Zip file wasn't seen by the camera. So I tried reformatting the card in the computer to a FAT filesystem, but it made no difference.

How do install the firmware update to my camera?

  • \$\begingroup\$ To my knowledge and the entries on Nikon page and wikipedia - there is no D150. Can you please check the model number? There is a W150 however.... \$\endgroup\$ Commented Feb 10, 2020 at 9:58

When you right click on the zip file, is there an option to "extract" all files?

You need to unzip (extract the individual files contained within) the zip file first. Then you can copy the firmware file from the results of the extraction to the camera's memory card. There's probably also a "read me" file that explains the entire procedure contained within the zip file.
