Cura 4.12.1 refuses to save to sd card or access USB


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 4.12.1 refuses to save to sd card or access USB

So after slicing and inserting an sd card. save to removable appears. upon clicking it all of Cura turns grey {{NOT RESPONDING}} appears at the top and after some time. about 3 minutes it writes to sd card. which then windows has to repair to use again. drivers checked, power cycled machine, sd slot checked and verified, 17 sd cards same result.

Also USB connection never detects a printer attached. thanks for all the lectures on what to do with my printers, and how i print, but i don't print over USB. im not buying a rasp pi and more software, when its easily fixed in the software that claims it can do it already.



Note: if i have to just save to disk and copy it to sd card, or use other things to control a printer over usb {as most "printers" have been able to do forever}  then remove the function, kinda like having a 4 wheel drive setting on a 50cc scooter

    I have the same problem.  Cura does not "see "sd card or flash drive, and also sdaves to a random location (like "thinking" my cloud storage is a sd card) . Cura is great, but ist time the programmers adress this issue.

    cheers, Maarten

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
