Can only hope now eletoponline365 will be nice.

Does anyone know if formatting the flash card before applying the firmware patch can cause this? In my case the DCIM folder wasn't present when I tried to remove the stamp.
The DCIM folder should not matter. The camera reads the new firmware file directly from the root directory where the DCIM folder would be, not from inside that folder, nor does it need any other files from inside that folder.

Sorry to hear that... I think you will get resolution from the vendor. Out of curiousity, is your camera completely dead... i.e. no response (no leds) when plugged into the USB port or turned on with it's power button?
