songs skipping with Minidirector

Recommended Posts

we've been having the system skip songs and mess up in the middle of songs. I bought a new better SD card thinking that would help. 

 

Any ideas what causing it??

I am having a similar problem with the G3-MP3 show director.  I can only get one sequence to run and then it has to be by itself on the SD card.  I had multiple sequences on the card and the first one would work and then it would quit controlling the lights but the music would still be playing.  I have tried several brand new SD cards without success.  Sometimes it would only control some of the lights.  LOR sent me a new hardware utility and I could not get it to load on my computer.  You probably should open a problem ticket with LOR.

I know sounds chump, but are you both using Sandisk cards?

LOR recommends Kingston. I had some problems and then bought the Kingston cards and they all went away. I have 46 minutes playing perfectly.

I have a Lexar that works fine too. Just was hoping your problem would be simple.

I had to open a help ticket because of the same problem. Beit my unit was new, a replacement was sent and received within 3 days.

It would play good for a song or two but then would skip and finally just repeat like 3-5 seconds of the song.

My cards were PNY so I knew that wasn't the issue. Replacement has worked ever since.

Also, they replaced that entire enclosure and all so no need to remove the mini director.

Im sure you will have a resolution fast, mine was just before Halloween and within 3 days I got the replacement and returned the bad one.

I did a firmware update on my G3-MP3.  It only took a couple minutes to download the latest level and then only took a few minutes to send it out to the G3-MP3.  Supposedly they are releasing a new level of software which is supposed to take care of the problem.
