Formating SD car in BM 4K video assist

PostMon Sep 11, 2017 7:58 am

hi my problem is that I cannot format SD cards. They are Lexar SDXC 2 150mbs cards. I have been shooting from Ursa to VA. Last note I did the 2.5 update. Was all fine, but now it will not format cards. Have erased cards on mac, have put into other stills cameras, they are working. They will even work in the 5" VA, but will not format in the 4kK VA. I was looking just to restore factory settings or reboot or re-install. How to? Thanks

Uninstall the 2.5'update, install a previous firmware and connect VA to cimoutermto install the earlier version. Also, is that model Lexar SD card on the BM list of SD cards for the VA 4K?

Hi Denny

thanks for the reply. The card is on the list. I got to this place once I had posted. You know whats its like always wanting a quick fix. I went back to a 2.3 that I have stored and she is working fine. My project does not require any 2.5 features so may just stick with it for a bit. Thanks again.

Good, make sure you send BM Support a note about this "bug" in 2.5

I tested a few different Lexar cards with our Video Assist 4K here and they both formatted in both formats just fine. The VA was on 2.5 as I confirmed this before formatting both cards.
