Format for USB Stick
« on: January 07, 2015, 12:12:24 PM »
Hi Evan,


Is there a particular format required for the Sandisk Cruzer which will be connected to the CNvXC?  FAT16, FAT32, NTFS?  Just received the stick and expect my vario tomorrow or Friday.


Thanks

I tried many different USB thumbdrives and could get most to write a flight recording from the CNII.  However to get the CNII to boot up and go into the data update screen it was very particular.  I tried old and new sticks, and several models of SanDisk Cruzers. I tried FAT and FAT32 formatting. 

Nothing seemed to get the CNII to start the data update screen, unless the root of the drive had a file named "ClearNavUpdater.cnx".

Is that just a coincidence? or is the "ClearNavUpdater.cnx" file needed?

That file is required because that's the executable that does the updating...

Thanks I'm not sure I've seen that documented anywhere or mentioned elsewhere.

I have the ClearNav I, not the II.  Is the ClearNavUpdater.cnx also needed for the USB or is the ClearNavUpdater.exe (in the ClearNav I facory USB download on the web site sufficient?

The software for CN1 and CN2 is different but the general concept is the same.  Use the updater packaged with the CN1 USB (see downloads page if you need it).

Hi,

I need a little more step-by-step coaching!!!

I've just bought a CN1- I will get it updated to II in the near future, but need to juse it as-is for a shrt while.

The previous owned has lost the supplie USB.

As such, I need to format a new USB to use to put i updates, waypint at SUA files, and download flights.

How do I go about this?

Thanks

First off, find a small capacity USB drive.  CN1 probably won't work with any of the modern USB drives greater than 16 GB capacity. 

Best to start with an empty drive, download the zipped "ClearNav 1 Factory Memory Stick" file from the downloads page, unzip it and transfer the contents as is onto the empty memory stick. 

See here for how to proceed to load new airspace & waypoint files: http://clearnav.net/CN-Manual/Manual/CN-Manual-FileLoad.html
