Stuck at "Formatting Card"

#1

Hi
I had to re-format the SD card and re-loaded all original content (files and firmware), seemed to work fine for a bit but now everytime I try and use the pedal it tells me that it’s updating the firmware, and asks me to take the SD card and re-boot, which I do but the same message appears after a while.
Even plugging into the computer does not seem to do anything
I’ve gone through the whole process again (formatting etc) but still same problem

frustrating…any ideas?
thanks

It’s a really really weird error you are seeing.

But I know a sure fix.

  1. Plug BeatBuddy to your computer (or insert an SD card).
  2. Make sure there are ONLY 4 folders and 1 file.

Here is the list:
DRUMSETS
EFFECTS
PARAMS
SONGS
hash.bcf

  1. Erase everything else not on the list above. Somehow firmware files didn’t get deleted after BeatBuddy was updated. You’ll need to help them do it manually :slight_smile:

P.s.: To be honest, you can store anything you like on the SD card, so there could be any amount of folders/files there. But for troubleshooting, simply delete everything except content.

thanks
there definitely are some other files other than the ones you mention, but it’s weird why they would be there, I had re-formatted the card then I downloaded the card files (content and firmware) from the forum
anyways will try your suggestion
cheers
