I need to format DR Studio disc first?

PostWed Mar 25, 2020 10:56 pm

The Resolve that came with my bmpcc4k camera, I went to download in Windows 10 but it said i need to format disc first.
Did anyone else encounter this problem?

Won't I lose information on sd card if its formatted?

Of course, you'll lose information when formatting. But what exactly are you trying to do?
Resolve never asked me to format a disk for installation.
Resolve Studio 16.2 and Fusion Studio under MacOS Mojave 10.14.6
iMac 2017 Radeon Pro 580 8 GB VRAM and 32 GB RAM
Mac mini 16 GB RAM plus eGFX Breakway Radeon RX 580

Don't use the SD card that came with the camera.

Resolve on an SD card included with any of our products will never be a current version.

ALWAYS download Resolve from the BMD web site Support area:
