He is a lifelong computer geek and loves everything related to computers, software, and new technology. downloaded it, installed it and firmware shows properly updated.If you are unsure what you have right now, scroll down to the Firmware Version option at the bottom of the camera's Setup menu. Then drop by Nikon's website to download the update. Mac users that prefer Stuff-it can download D2xfw101instead.Nikon USA has the Windows version here and the Mac OS version here. In either case, uncompressing the contents will yield a "D2X Update" folder containing the two actual firmware files, AD2X0101and BD2X0101.bin, along with a release notes text file.So the problem seems clear - its not the batteries...gotta be the firmware, and something i'm going to update fairly soon. i just started getting the stupid DBS after purchasing my 2nd battery for the D200. I took six batteries on a one-day trip and they all went flat in the D200!i just started getting the stupid DBS after purchasing my 2nd battery for the D200. But when I checked them in the D300, yep - they really were flat!
Using outdated or corrupt Nikon D2Xs drivers can cause system errors, crashes, and cause your computer or hardware to fail.

About a month ago, Nikon posted an updated firmware version of for the D2x.
Only when both A and B display as updated to 2.01 are you fully upgraded. The solution is to do the procedure in 's comment. DBS has only happened to me once in 10 months but I updated the firmware anyway. This depends on whether Nikon are likely to introduce a new problem with an update.
Edit: As a side note, I want to mention that I have never had BDS happen to me, but I updated the camera anyways. It's actually the procedure that's in the instructions, except that it's vague on the need to copy the files one at a time. I suspect not, and I think it is a good idea to take advantage of the offer to fix a known problem.
