How to recover files from a crashed Compact Flash on my Roland SPD-S?

My SPD-S no longer recognises my CompactFlash card when I insert it . When I put the card into my computer all the files are still on the card. What's the best way to fix this without losing the files and phrases save to the card?

It's possible your CF card is full.
1. Connect the card to your computer as you have done. 2. Copy the files off it and save same them to a folder on your desktop.3. Right click only the Flash drive and navigate to "Properties" or "Get Info" if your a mac user.4. Take not of the file system it is currently using.5. Re-format the card with the same file system using your computer.6. Replace the card into your Roland SPD-S and Re-format using these steps: a. Select patch mode or wave mode. b. Press {SHIFT} and {SETUP} (CARD UTIL) c. Press the PAGE buttons to select "CARD FORMAT" then press {ENTER} d. A"[>] to format." indication appears. Press [>] e. A "format, sure?" indication is displayed. Press {ENTER} to start formatting.
7. Once formatted you can replace the card in your computers card reader and copy the files you backed up earlier onto it.8. Re-place the CF card in your Roland and it should work. If not then you may have a irreparable CF Card.

SOURCE: Roland SPD-S Flash card error

For the "Unsupported" error message:

  • The SPD-S is only compatible with "TYPE 1" Compact Flash cards. Also, the maximum allowed size of the CF card is 512 mb. I tried 10 different CF card and they all worked fine although only 2 of them were actually listed as compatible cards but they were all Type 1 CF cards with 512 mb or less.
  • There is no way to avoid the type 1 restriction but you can cheat the SPD-S concerning the 512mb restriction. If you have a CF card with 1 gb or more and you don't mind to use only 512mb from it... you can use a disk partinionner tool (such as Partition Magic) to delete the current partition and create a new one of only 512mb (actually make 510 mb as the partition info takes some space).

For the "unformatted" error message:
  • Simply format your card as stated in page 67 of your manual.

You can try using a file recovery software like Bad Copy Pro 4.10.125. It works well for me.

Can i use 4GB Compact Flash in Nikon Cool pix 4300 Nikon Digital Camera?


A 4GB CompactFlash card should work in your Nikon Coolpix, but you may only be able to use 2GB of it's space once formatted correctly. This camera formats the cards in the FAT file system. That basically means that one can only use up to 2GB of memory (2048 MB).

The solution was sooo easy.....one of my online embroidery groups suggested to put the card in my Janome and let the machine format it. It took about a minute and did not tell me what it was doing..and It worked! It put two folders on my card, Emb5 and ord#5, and I was to copy the jef files into the Emb5 folder, which I did and bingo! my Janome 9500 read the card and produced a screen with my jef files in it. I am a happy camper....I don't know if this works with all Janome machines but it did with mine.
Thanks for being here to help.

Compact Flash adapters


Hallo,

try the following program:

gogle for: GParted Live Disk

With this tool, you should be able to make TWO PARTITIONS on your 1GB CF-card (cheaper then 512MB) and create a partition with 510Mb (caution! NOT 512Mb!!).

Now you should be able to use the CF-card in your SPD-S.

Further advantage, you can store backups on the second partition, by copying them (on your PC) to the second partition.

Best regards,

File import


Try IMPORT instead of just trying to load them on your SPD-S.
The SPD-S uses some kind of its own file-format.

Have you tried using an SD card? The hx2000 is supposed to support SD cards and CompactFlash Type II memory cards. If it doesn't respond, it's possible that your second-hand device simply has a faulty card slot.
