View Full Version : BDP7600/12 - SDHC Format Bug?

03-26-2012, 12:43 PM
Dear All,

This follows my recent purchase of a BDP7600/12 Player.

For keeping local info (needed -- at least -- for NetTV & BDLive) it can use an SDHC Class 6 memory card.

It also needs to FORMAT that card the first time it accesses it, during the play of a BluRay disc.

And here's my problem: the User's Manual states that the card should have a capacity of at least 4GB; I tried using a 32GB card (Class 6, of course!), and by the time the Formatting process almost finished, the Player switched already to a StandBy status, and got stuck ... (only by disconnecting it from the mains I was able to bring it back to life)!

I had no problem with a 4GB card, the formatting of which finished prior to the Player's changing operational status.

So my questions are:

1. Is this a bug in the formatting option of the Player?

2. If so, and until it is -- hopefully -- fixed, can the card be externally formatted (say, in a PC/Laptop)? If so, what parms (File structure, label, block size, ...) would be accepted by the Player?

On a side-note: it would be nice to offer an option to Format the card from the Settings menu, and not only as a by-product of accessing another function (like playing a BluRay disc or accessing NetTV) ...
Maybe in an upcoming Firmware update

Thanks in advance for your help,

good idea to have an option to format from the menu.

However, does it work if you deactivate the screensaver AND the auto-standby?

Hello Toengel,

Thanks for the hint.

Indeed, it worked (took for ever, but the Player eventually finalized the Formatting of the card).

Still, as we both mentioned, being able to access the Format task directly from a Menu rather than as a by-product of performing another task, could really improve the User experience ...

Thanks again,,
