    We have ME-500s at my church, and I’m trying to save my mix settings to a USB drive. The drive I’ve tried so far is a 2 GB sandisk drive. When I insert it, the USB icon on the ME-500 just flashes. As I understand it, this means that there is something wrong with the drive.

    My questions…

    I think the drive is formatted as FAT32. Does it need to be a different format?

    Or is this otherwise an unsupported drive, either because of the size or something else with these older SanDisk drives?

    I have another drive I will eventually get a chance to try, but if I can go into it with some more knowledge, maybe I can get it to work next time.

    Thanks!

    I also have the same issues. I just purchased 7 ME-1’s and none of them will recognize the USB stick(s). It will either start and then crash until i cycle power or switch to a key flash mode without triggering an action to save the config to the USB. I have tried old 2GB and new 16 & 32GB formated for FAT32 with nothing on them. I really can’t believe this is still a problem since these theads started in 2013. So far I have not been able to transfer my default config to the other units. Very frustrating!.

    Hi @dbromley I was able to get mine to work with a 16GB FAT32 drive. I didn’t have anything else on the drive. I’m not sure if that matters or not. I know you mentioned you did the same. I used an old SanDisk drive. I guess someone else with more expertise, or perhaps someone from A&H could provide a more knowledgeable response.
