Quote from: snydley on March 31, 2011, 11:24:52 PMToday I got a Transcend 32G class 10 flash card and I understand how to copy the data from the 4G card 2Box supplies to the 32G, but what about adding other sounds?I've downloaded all the extra drum sounds from the 2Box site and I want to add those too. How is the data organized in the memory card? Are there separate folders for toms, cymbals, bass drums etc. I've downloaded the Cliff Hewitt, Walnut series, etc. sounds, and saved them on my computer in folders called Tom, Cymbals, Snares etc. Are there separate folders for the different drums in the 2Box card, that once it's copied to my 32G card, I copy the sounds to the corresponding folders in the new card, ie. snares to Snares, Kicks to Kicks etc., or are all the sounds in one folder?I want to do this ASAP, but I want to know the details before I open the brain up for surgery. Thanks,Snyde

But when you load them to your SDHC card, you want to just load the samples. After copying everything from your old SDHC card to your new SDHC card, you just copy the new samples to the appropriate folders. Within the folders there are subfolders.... like within the Cymbal folder you will find China, Crash, HiHat, Ride, Splash. So just put the new samples in the appropriate folder.
QuoteI did my card as you are doing... copied all the old stuff, then loaded all the new stuff available from the 2Box site. I still don't know exactly what some of the gliches were I ran into... a few times when I dropped new sounds in I would get a message like... the file could no longer be located .... but for the most part it went pretty smooth, and I just redid a few of the ones that got screwed up.... I have everything new now along with the original sounds and songs ... and still only using 15% of the 32GB capacity. Jerry
QuoteOne other thing I have done twice, and it is pretty time consuming.... but I made a copy of everything on the original card the first time.... just in case I hosed the deal... I would have a backup. And I also did another backup of everything on the new card ... about a week ago. Some would think it is overkill, some, like me think it is always a good idea to backup important files, and after all the work loading up the 32GB card, that qualifies as an IMPORTANT file to me.
Quote from: Jman on April 01, 2011, 03:12:33 AMYeah, probably a windows problem on the uploading for me .... I have Windows 7 64bit ... I have had this 32GB card now since I posted back in that other thread, it works without a hitch ... quite happy with this... I've switched back and forth a couple times with the original 4GB card also ... remove the 32GB card when the unit is OFF ... put in the other card and it works perfect ... cool for me, because my PC is 20 feet or more away from my drum module, so if it weren't for the removable card I would be unplugging everything from the module, moving it and hooking up USB to add sounds .... much better with the removable card....

Quote from: Jman on April 02, 2011, 07:02:38 PMI didn't have any problem formatting the card to 32Kbyte ... knew that was what the module wants. But I'm sure we experienced a lot of the same errors. I have a card reader on my PC and used that... also used a USB external card reader .... funny most of the time the files would just copy fine and fast... If the copying would stall, calculating the time for transferring ... stalling, I knew I would get an error.... Like you I just persevered and recopied until I got everything. No worries on installing the card extender. Once you have taken the module apart it is a piece of cake the next time through. And installing the extender is just about as easy as plugging in a card. I bought a backup extender and received it a couple weeks ago .... I like to test things when I receive them to be sure they work.... I did not install it in my module ... but I did plug it into my PC card reader... just mentioning this because in my case I got a pop up to Format that even though it had a card in it that is already formatted .... Just letting you know, you may have to go through formatting again.... but probably not .... that may be another glitch with the card reader and Windows .... just plug it into your module, insert the card and try it out before you put all the screws back in ....
