Error when updating your profile (08 Sep 2018)
When you try to update your profile, you get an error from the server. This is a know bug, which is caused by incompatibility between the website template software and the forum software. The developers are working on a fix. Hopefully the problem will be fixed before October. Until then please contact a moderator if you need to update your profile. He or she will help you.
USB-2 Stick to BK-9
Did you format the stick in the BK9?
And does the stick have any security formatting when you bought it? Some sticks have an 'invisible' partition, with security or anti-virus software on them. These can sometimes present a problem. The security partition is the first partition, and the BK series expect to use any stick's first partition. If it is invisible but still there, the BK9 cannot write to the stick.
I tend to look for sticks that don't have any software (anti-virus or security) on them when I buy them. Then I format them first in my Mac as FAT32, then I format them again in the BK9, which formats the stick again and adds the folders (My Songs, My Rhythms, etc.).
BTW, I have used PNY and SansDisk USB2 and USB3 sticks.
Also to get rid of hidden partitions and to (pre-) format those, use the official SD Formatter v5 tool:
If no errors are reported you should be able to format the device in the Roland Arranger and if
it still is refused, the USB stick may not be fully compatible.
I have two of these. Zero problems. www.amazon.com/PNY-Attache-Flash-Drive-P...s=PNY+64GB+USB+stick
BTW, don't EVER get just one stick! Always buy at least two, and make a rolling backup, so if you lose your stick, it gets stolen or fails to function, you have an up to date duplicate.
I keep three identical sticks... One in the instrument, one at home, and one on my keychain just in case the main one fails.
