How much free memory on the Di3?
« on: March 05, 2020, 01:31:37 PM »
It seems very strange that the Di3 is delivered with only 4Gb internal memory, since the memorycards in so inexpensive
Does anybody know how much free memoryspace theres left with all the stock-kits on the card?

Is it possible to just change the internal memorycard or will I have to do an extendercard update?
Sincere

It has been discussed many times, the reason is because the USB port of the module is 1.1 so when plugged into a computer it won’t let you access cards bigger than 4GB, it even destroys their format and you have to open your module to replace it.
The free space left is around 70MB, you’ll have to delete some content if you want to copy some sounds. You can put a bigger card in it but it’s impractical since every time you need to copy a file or a OS update you will have to open the module to retrieve it since the usb port will become useless.
