Hi!

I'm Frank G.

 

I have a question!

Trying to print something on my new Anet  A8 3D Printer ,

I'm using  cura 14.07 software, and I downloaded something I want to print.

When I connected my CD card to my PC so I can upload my data to the CD card,

I got a message saying, do I want to format my card.

I don't understand, in that if I format the CD card I'll lose my data.

could you help me whit this please.

 

Thanks

Frank G.

    This is a windows question.  Not a cura question.

     

    If you format the SD card you will indeed lose everything on there.  I get that message all the time and just choose to not format my SD card.  But if there is nothing important on the SD card then go for it.  This message comes up if windows thinks the card might be corrupted.  So it is a good idea to format it.  But usually (99% of the time) it's not necessary.  But if you are getting strange behavior such as your print ends half way through for no reason and when look at the file on the SD card and the top half looks fine and the bottom half is full of random characters - well then it's time to format it.
