SD Card Issues
The LOGGER stores data on a Mini SD Card. The LOGGER uses normal
files that can be copied for backup purposes to a PC using any SD
Card adapter. Restoring is simply copying the files back to the SD
Card. Powering off the LOGGER before removing the SD Card is
recommended. The LOGGER must be rebooted (powered on) when the SD Card is
inserted or changed.
SD cards 32Gb or smaller will work in a LOGGER as they come from the
SD cards that are 64Gb or larger come formatted with a format type
called exFAT. The LOGGER can not use this format. Cards this size can
be reformatted to the FAT32 format type which
can be used on the LOGGER.
Unfortunately Microsoft Windows formatting
can not be used to make this change. Microsoft Windows will only
format SD Cards to exFAT or NTFS format types neither of which can
be used by the LOGGER. A third party formatting tool must be used to
format to the FAT32 file system type. Searching for
FAT32 Format Program
will find many such tools. The tool from
was tried and found to work on 64Gb Lexar brand SD Cards.
Note: Once the card is formatted to FAT32 Microsoft Windows can
still read and write the card.
