Files added to flash drive not detected on B9 530

Post#1 » Wed Jan 02, 2019 1:14 pm

Hey guys and gals. I just received a used b9 530 in the mail today and got everything moving and set up. For some reason files stored to the Ian flash drive do not seem to be detected on the unit.

I’ve done a layout and slice, it’s the only thing on the drive. What gives?

It may take a few seconds to show the contents after the USB drive is plugged in. If you have sub-directories on the flash, make sure you're in the correct one. It will only show files ending in *.cpj. What is the name of the *.cpj file? on the flash drive?

It happens to me quite often. I just pull out the usb go back to start over and plug it in. I think it has to do with how much I have loaded on the usb
but it will show up if you go back to transfer.

So, this is not a .cpj file (in other words, the file name does not end in ".cpj") and that's why you won't see it.

I'm not sure how the name became so mangled? It looks like it should simply be called "prongtest.cpj"

Can you open the project in Create and "Save As" with a simple name like test.cpj and try again?

What is " the Ian flash drive "?

Lan or Ian?

I would try a different flash drive as soon as you get that Cpj thing figured out.
