    SD Cards

    Haven't used an SD card in a while for firmware simply because it's easier to use my laptop. However, with this new firmware and mylar update were getting ready to do on all these **03 color machines; I'm going to put the firmware on SD cards to do firmware updates. All that being said, are the RFG machines ok using the SDHC cards or do they only like SD cards?

    Most types we have used work OK. The only time we see problems is if cards have more capacity than 1GB. Then the card won't be seen by the copier or won't find files. Using the proper folder and file names in the correct order is imperative in ANY case.

    example: If the SD card is blank, copy the entire "romdata" folder onto the SD card.If the card already contains folders up to "D284" (copier product number), copy the necessary firmware files (e.g. D284xxxx.fwu) into this
    folder.
    • Do not put multiple machine firmware programs on the same SD card. Copy the only model firmware you want.

    Most newer models will take larger SD cards up to 2GB. I think the latest models 54's and C**04's will take 4GB. If you don't have a 512M or 1GB card and the machine will not take a 2GB or larger, you can always use a utility such as Mini Tools Partition Wizard to create a 1GB card.

    Yeah SDHC cards are fine, i've got an 8GB that seems to be fine.

    This mylar mod is going to be a pain due to the ammount of metis models I have out there & I bet taking off 100's of IOB's a few will error after being disturbed!

    Ricoh's electronics do seem to be a little bit "prissy" huh?

    This is from the bulletin, verbatim..."CAUSE:The On/Off Control of the IC and an opening in the IOB Mounting Bracket permitted heat to escape thecomponents."

    In my humble, yet professional opinion, this means components on the pwb BURNED UP!

    The bulletion only requires the engine fw updating so if you’re in a hurry just jump on the users PC & update the engine .RFU via WIM
