Hello, I recently downloaded Cura software and sliced my print project. When I went to load the G-code file to the removable disc in my computer I got the error message "There are no file formats to write with". Can someone please explain, in detail, as to what I need to do to fix this situation? Thank you in advance

    Windows?  Mac?  Linux?

    Is the memory card new?  Are you able to copy files to it using your normal method (not going through Cura)?  What I mean is, can you copy a file from a folder and paste it onto the memory card?

    Have you tried re-formatting the memory card?

    Yes the memory card is new. I got the card when I purchased the printer. The error appears in Cura after I am done slicing the file and I want to transfer the file to the flash drive. Many thanks for you attempt to help me. I am not even close to being a newbie so any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated.

    The "Slice" button has different functions depending on...stuff.  If the memory card is plugged into the computer then the default is "save to removeable drive removeable drive :X".  At the right end of the button is an arrow.  Click on the arrow and you can select from other options.  One is "Save to Disc" which is your hard drive.  That will bring up a regular "SaveAs" dialog.  After saving, a popup will appear in Cura and ask if you want to open the folder.  With the folder open you can copy and paste the file to the memory card.

    If the above doesn't work then I think it might be an operating system problem talking to the card slot.
