Moot point really. Pretty sure the user guide says just opening the brain is enough to void the warranty.
Not really, there is no warranty info or warnings about opening the module at all in the User Guide. I'm not saying that it is a green light to open the module. But I do know that we originally got the step by step guide with pictures for opening up the module and changing the SD card from 2Box. There was a batch of modules years back that had problems with the SD card. So some people opted to change their own cards with the company's blessing. And doing the external card mod is basically as simple as changing the internal memory card. Unless someone has a bizarre accident like spilling their beer in the open case, it is simple and won't alter or harm the module as long as care is taken during the process.

I could tell you where to stick that piezo! :D ;)

SD CARD NOT WORKING_CAN YOU PLEASE HELP?

Hello,

I've followed all the tips for replacing the SD CARD of the brain module of the DRUMIT FIVE, including formatting the card to DOS (FAT) and then copying the files from the original 4GB SD card to a 16GB SD card.

After installing the new SD card, I switch on the brain and it reports:

"DrumIt_Five
FAT_S_0512_C_08k
SerNr   Boot   OS
00996  1.30  1.26"

and from there it does not load. By pressing any of the buttons of the brain it just stays on the screen.

What could be the problem?

Maybe because of this?
Original 4GB SD card is a class 6
New 16 GB SD card is a class 10

Or maybe because of this?
The new 16GB SD card has been formatted with a Mac, using DOS (FAT) as a format setting (at the moment I don't have a pc for checking if this is the reason)

What else could it be?

Thank you for the consideration and any help you could offer me

Did the mod which thx to the great people on this site was pretty straight forward - unfortunately the extension ribbon I got from eBay was faulty so im looking for another - if anyone has a link to a better seller than the one I used/or site - that would be awesome - also do all these ribbons read cards of 32 gig or should I be looking for a certain type ? sorry for questions but pc stuff is definitely not my strong point,

must say a huge thx to Lustar too for his superb program and his help getting things on my card

Got my SD card extension off ebay. Took a long while to get here (free shipping from China), but works like a charm after installation (thanks for the guide).

However, I noticed when it arrived that it had 2-16 GB printed on it. Does that mean that I can't use any SD card larger than 16 GB? Not that it matters much, but it would be annoying to buy a larger one and find out it doesn't work.

I just successfully completed this modification using these two items:

Lexar Professional 1000X 32GB SD card - It came in a retail box.
https://www.amazon.com/Lexar-Professional-UHS-II-Software-LSD32GCRBNA1000/dp/B00PLENZF2

This SD extender cable
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00879U4O8/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1


I transferred the files from the 4GB card (that was in the 2Box module) to the new 32GB card. I also added the sounds from the E-Nerd kit, and then used the new 32GB card in the 2Box to create a new kit from those sounds on the 2Box interface. Everything works the way it should.

The cladding on the ribbon cable of the extender shown above is thin, so I covered it with electrical tape where it passes through the bottom cover of the 2Box. This provides a little extra insurance that the bottom cover will not cut through and short the ribbon cable wires.

Hello!

I did 32 GB mod and have some issues. I don't know how to explain, when I play drums, I hear some noise beside drum sound. Not when hit single pad, but when play two or more pads fast, then I hear that sound. Feels like cable cracks. Hope you understand what I mean, my english is not so good.

When I put original 4 GB card in extender, everything is ok. That means the problem is in new SD card.

I use Lexar SD card (found in compatibily list).

Did anyone had same problem? How to solve it?

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like an SD problem. Is it the exact model on the compatibility list - and did you get it from a reputable source? There are lots of counterfeit cards out there.

Here is the card I use:


I bought it on ebay so I don't know is it fake or not... Package was original... Looks like I must try with another card...



Thanks for help... :rock:

How road worthy is this after the mod? I use my brain with my cover band and would like to expand it, but do not want to worry about it jiggling loose in the case bouncing around the trailer.

Well, whether you do the card mod or not I would highly recommend putting your module in a padded case when transporting. If it is in a padded case it would be fine with or without the card mod. Electonic modules and bouncing around don't work well together. There are lots of drummers gigging that have done the Card mod though for sure.
