    Hi Pete,

    Here is how to update the time and date on your Original Olfi (not one.five)

    UPDATING THE TIME AND DATE
    To update the time and date on your Original Olfi, you need to put a txt file on your Olfi.

    Firstly, you need to create a txt file on a computer (if you’re struggling getting the update to work, it’ll usually be because an issue with the TXT file you’ve created – I have a TXT file available that i can email to you if you’re struggling, just e-mail [email protected] and i can send it to you!)

    Below, I’ve added instructions on creating TXT files for MAC and PC users.

    MAC users
    1 Connect your SDcard to your computer using the SDcard slot or via the USB cable from the computer to the camera.
    2 Go into your Applications through Launchpad and open the TEXTEDIT application (The symbol will probably look like a piece of lined paper with a pen) – Open it.
    3 Start a New Document
    4.Type in the time and date in the exact same format as below

    YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS
    (THERE SHOULD BE A SINGLE SPACE BETWEEN THE DATE AND TIME. THERE SHOULD BE NO OTHER SPACES IN THE FILE)

    EXAMPLE:
    2019-01-21 10:23:00

    5. Click on Format in the TextEdit Main Menu and select Plain Text. This will put your file format in the correct format. Please note: Your text file MUST be written in Plain Text (click on Format in the TextEdit Main Menu and select Plain Text) If it says Helvetica or Times New Roman etc, this will not work. It must be in Plain Text and this must be done before you save the file. Simply re-naming a rtf file after it has saved, and turning it into a txt file will not work.
    6. Name the file TIME (in CAPITALS) and save it to the SD card. It should sit below the DCIM folder (if there is one present) – not inside it. The TIME.txt file should not be inside any folder, or the update will not work. It must sit at the root of the SD card.
    7. Safely eject your memory card from your MAC by pressing eject or dismount.
    8. Place the SDcard inside your Olfi and turn it on by pressing and holding the power button for 2 seconds.

    PC users
    1. Connect your SDcard to your computer using the SDcard slot or via the USB cable from the computer to the camera.
    2. Search for NOTEPAD, and open
    3.Type in the time and date in the exact same format as below

    YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS
    (THERE SHOULD BE A SINGLE SPACE BETWEEN THE DATE AND TIME. THERE SHOULD BE NO OTHER SPACES IN THE FILE)

    EXAMPLE:
    2019-01-21 10:23:00

    4.Please note: Your text file should be written in Plain Text – This is usually the default on PC.
    5. Name the file TIME (in CAPITALS) and save it to the SD card. You can check its worded and saved correctly by inspecting the file (right clicking on the file). It must be TIME.txt.
    It should sit below the DCIM folder (if there is one present) – not inside it. The TIME.txt file should not be inside any folder, or the update will not work. It must sit at the root the SD card.
    6. Safely eject your memory card from your PC by pressing eject or dismount.
    7. Place the SDcard inside your Olfi and turn it on by pressing and holding the power button for 2 seconds.

    PLEASE NOTE: The TXT file will automatically delete from your memory card when you press the power button to initiate the time and date update. If your update wasn’t successful you’ll need to put the txt file back on to the memory card to try again.

    Little Tip – if you manage to stick or freeze your camera during the firmware update (rarely happens), simply remove the battery for 20 seconds, replace it again and try again. This will only usually happen if you’ve accidentally pressed a button during the update initiation.

    Please let me know if you need any further assistance as i would be happy to help.
