I am having trouble getting my Show Designer 2CF to recognize the fixture profiles from the CF Card. I unziped the file and saved all the fixture profiles on the memory card. Then put the memory card into the board and the board says that there are no fixtures or profiles. I'm not sure what I am doing wrong. Could you please provide me with any sugestions you have.

I  created 2 fixture profiles using SD2Fixture program downloaded front the Elation website.  Once I created the profile I saved on the CF card with 8 characters file name.  We I insert  into the CF slot and try to load fixture profile from CF.  I received the message "File not found". Please assist.


Thank you

And also check you are loading the fixture from cf... Not memory from cf.. I have done this rushing about!! 😀.. You could always create a dummy profile save it to cf card and see if ya can see it... Ie just a one channel fixture call it  Test so its easier to spot.. 

Thanks for the quick responses.  I checked the file format. It has .sdf file extension.  I also copy two other sdf from the library.  I still can not see the files.  I selected "Load Fixture Profile from CF" and still comes up with "No files found" message.

I think you can use larger than 64mb but 2G might be too large. This unit was designed back when those cards were in common use. Elation used to have those 64mb in stock to send out when needed. If it were me, I would just buy the USB cable and use that, the cable is not expensive. The instructions with the file transfer program give the part number for the cable.
