Initial tests seem to be fine with the latest firmware update and viewer but the total trip indicator appears to have got worse its now showing just under 80 km travelled for a true distance of 15.5 km I am beginning to despair of Lukas ever getting this problem sorted its been several Emails and uploaded video samples to Lukas Qrontech and we are no nearer to a solution to this problem I know several other LK7900 users are experiencing the same issue .....but strangely not everyone.......come on Lukas get this fault sorted once and for all ......

Why not?
I did install viewer on my win 8 laptop. My issue after several attempts to update firmware no luck. I have tried two different SDcards one formatted with the updated viewer and another formatted with windows 8 both SDcards contained only the unzipped firmware file. I wondering if maybe I have to format on a win 7 computer? Any ideas.

At which part does it 'not work'?
Does it attempt to flash?

For anyone to know what is wrong you should post the exact procedure you tried. Step by step.

Thank you for your kind remarks. The weather here has had it's effects I'm sure. I'm happy to say there have been no malfunctions of these LK-7900 cameras as the temperature rises into the 90's.

Stay as cool as you have always been Ipol.

I formatted sdcard copied firmware update on to sdcard nothing else on SDcard. Followed steps started auto waited until dvr showed SDCARD FAILED inserted sdcard and dvr starts recording makes no attempt to update. I tried two different sdcards. I am using a win 8 computer to format sdcard. I tried fornatting with updated lukas viewer and without the viewer I will try again today. If it don't work this time I will use a win 7 computer to format sdcard, Any ideas welcomed.

I am still not sure that you have if you have done this right. First install the viewer on your PC. Then format the SD from that application. Now copy the extracted firmware file to the SD. Turn on the camera and wait for the error indication there is no SD. Now insert the SD and wait. You should be fine at this point. Just remember not to format using Windows.

How do you know it's your age? If you are confused then maybe you're wrong.

I went to the website, that greensum sent me, when I purchased my Lukas, and I selected download new english verison viewer, which did download, but when I went to install it , it was in Korean.. I did it a second time to make sure that I indeed select the english version, and same problem, in Korean........ I emailed him back to tell him there was a problem with his website when it comes to installing the viewer in English.

I had emailed Green-sum, and he apologized for the inconvenience, and the problem was corrected... Now when I download the new version of Lukas viewer, its actually in English ........:)
