And then afte a minute the beat buddy is disconnected from my mac.

I using the last soft- and firmware on my beatbuddy

Any help is very aprecied

thx a lot

It could be that your SD card is either full, or locked. Use Get Info to Check the size of the card and the size of your project folder. Usually when the BBM throws that alert and it’s in the process of exporting a drum set, it’s an indicator that you’re trying to stuff 5 pounds into a 4 pound bag :grinning:

hi thx for youre help, it doesnt seems that my card is full, see the attached pic

Thanks for posting the screen shots, they are helpful.

Could you open the SD card and take a screen shot of the contents, and post that too?

hi, thx

here a go

Interesting. This looks like a combination of your bbworkspace folder and your SD card.
Here’s what I’d do to try and fix the issue:

  1. If you are using the USB cable to connect your pedal to your Mac, stop using that method; (why? it is my opinion that the data transfer using the USB cable connection method does not work as expected on the Mac and data transfer is much more reliable when using the slot reader). Instead, use the computer SD slot reader; if you have one of the newer Mac computers without a built-in slot reader, buy and use an external SD slot reader;
  2. Delete all of the contents from the SD card; empty the trash when done;
  3. Plug the SD card into the computer slot reader or an external SD card reader;
  4. Make sure the BeatBuddy Manager (BBM) is mapped to your bbworkspace by using the BBM > Tools > Set Workspace Location;
  5. BBM > File > Export > Project to SD card; accept the prompt for future sync
  6. If this still does not work, please contact me via PM (conversation).

P.S. Here’s what my SD card looks like (I don’t have the firmware installed on this card yet)

yes, im using an usb cable to connect with bb, and after 11 crashed exports now the 12 its going well*
Seems like the usb connection, I will go tomorrow to buy a card reader and try what you have written

many thanks

just for know for other guys they may have same issuses, i bought an ultra sd card 80MB/s and a external card reader, now is working how it should be, im happy,
thans to persist.
