SD Card Listing Issue on UM2

Recommended Posts


I am facing a very strange issue with my UM2 and urgently need some advice. Printer is not showing any listing of saved models from an inserted SD Card. I even tried reinstalling 14.09 firmware but that didn't help.

It is surely reading files, because if I click knob, um2 random selects a file, also if I turn the knob, it even change the selected file. Further no return button is visible on SD card listing page.


Any suggestions ?

Thanks in advance,

What size (capacity) of SD card is it? I had similar problems with an 8GB card (which is therefore actually SDHC), no problems at all with a 2GB card.

I expect the card also needs to be formatted with the FAT filesystem: not NTFS, exFAT or anything else.

I agree, use only "english" letters and dont use any non letters. Especially single quotes, double quotes, backslash, apostrophe. And make sure it ends with ".gcode". I think if it ends with ".g" it is invisible or something. I think this is a feature. Not sure - never tried it.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
