How do I update firmware on A1: Missing "Sony Camera Driver"

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)


I have downloaded the A1 1.2 Firmware update to my brand new MacBook Pro but when I Start the update a popup from "SystemSoftwareUpdater" comes up and says "You need to install Sony Camera Driver. Sony Camera Driver" then bunch of Chinese symbols.

I don't see a driver anywhere online that's generic. In the Sony A1 folder I downloaded a few other things but the popup continues to show up. Does anyone know how I can update the drivers on my camera?
