V0.3.x Firmware Workout: Better late than never

There must be something else that is causing it because when I try your procedure and others, I still do not get the extension in capital letters (ever).

By the way,

  • do you use a Mac computer to make edits to the file structure on the card?
  • is your card formatted with the ER-301’s internal card formatter?

#1184

Yes, OSX 10.10.5.
It should be, I used the one that came with the ER-301 and haven’t formatted it since.

Really odd. I can try with another card that’s not formatted with the ER-301, but I get consistently this issue with 0.3.25 on the card that I’m using.


#1185

Could you do me a favor and backup all your files to your computer and then reformat your card with the ER-301 and then retest with your procedure?

Then after that, bring the card back over to your Mac, create a folder and then retry your procedure but this time saving the new preset in the folder you created on your Mac.


#1186

Sure just a sec.

Okay, tested it out and it still does the same thing to me on a card that’s just formatted on ER-301(didn’t even insert it to my Macbook). 666STN still gets the extension .LUa and the OS can’t load it.


#1187

And just to be sure, when I say format with the ER-301, I mean using the admin > Card Console on the ER-301:

0011


#1188

Yes, formatted the card using the card console. Tried it twice, both times still .LUa extension.


#1189

Why did you try it twice? (Just making sure you didn’t add any extra steps between formatting and trying your test procedure.)


#1190

Oh, just to make sure that the card was properly formatted. I thought that formatting the card via ER-301 would get rid of the issue, but as it didn’t, I decided to try formatting another time.

Both times straight after the formatting I did the following steps:

  • Add Manual Grains to OUT1
  • Save chain (OUT1 - S3)
  • New File
  • Name it 666ZZZ
  • Observe the results by loading it (OUT1 - S1)

#1191

Do you have another card handy to test with?


#1192

I do, but unfortunately gotta run. I’ll test it out ASAP.


#1193

No pressure. I have plenty to do. :wink:


#1194

Quick note:

Powering on the 301, creating one sine oscillator, then saving the chain with the name 666STN (ahem) results in this


#1196

@odevices I tried it now with another card, which used to be in Radio Music earlier. Formatted it on ER-301, added Sine Osc, saved, named it 666ZZZ, and still the extension was .LUa.

Edit: Also wanted to mention that this card had been inside a Mac OS X before being formatted, but shouldn’t it matter if the formatting was done on ER-301?


#1197

What happens if you try it with v0.4.03? (Obviously, I’m grasping at straws here :blush:)


#1198

Sure, I can try it in a week or so! :+1: Right now I’d rather keep the 0.3.25 there as I’ve got a gig where I need the ER-301 in on Saturday, but I’ll try that out after that!

Edit: Unless @josker would like to try it with the 0.4.03 before me, as you did seem to have the same issue?
