DC-MP3 won't read SD card

I've loaded the SD card from the hardware utility, tried 2 different cards.

When I plug the SD card into the DC-MP3, Status led "P" stays on just fine but "E" goes out.

I can make the 1602MP3 work if it is wired to my PC. I can't get it to run from the SD card. What am I not doing right?

Rex... a few things to try.

First: reformat the sd card to FAT then try to load a show on it.

If that doesn't work....

Second: try pressing the reset button.

Third: try reloading the firmware again on the director card with it ONLY connected to the pc.

Lor has a new firmware update if up you purchased this year around the sale time. Mine wouldn't start a program now it will. Go to LOR and get the update firmware it will probably fix this problem

I have a LOR1602MP3 Show Director. It works with the Lexar 512K SD card that came with the Director, loaded with a show from the Simple Show Director app.

I wanted to store shows on other cards and now have two, PNY 4GB premium SDHC, cards. They too were loaded with the same show, both using Simple Show Director. When I plugged in either card, they fail to play, the red "E" light goes out, the green "P" light remains on.

I reformatted the cards, FAT. I pressed the reset button. Both failed.

My firmware is Ver 4.4. Should I reload the firmware? If so where do I get it? I can't find it on the LOR web site. How do I reload the firmware?

Are any other SD cards that work?  SDHC cards, do they work?



Did it mention them in the manual?

One thing to note: I have used Sandisc cards before.

What brand is your SDHC card?

Is it less then 2 gigs in size?

I have also used Sandisk and PNY cards that were 2 gig in size.

Guess you answered your question regarding SDHC cards

I just got my director last week, tried to load a show on the Lexar card that came with the unit. Using the USB card reader that came from LOR, it never would read when inserted...the computer never recognized a storage device. I used another generic card, was able to get the show loaded, but had problems with the show crapping out in the middle. I just tried another card reader and the Lexar and it worked. So for me, the card reader from LOR was keeping me from being successful. Now I'm running the show to make sure it continues without interruption.
