Not expected behaviour of the save and list of programs

Post by mcc » Tue Feb 06, 2018 6:41 pm


sorry for crossreferencing a forum post of myself here.

I wanted to try the string. font, and display programs announced and listed in this thread:
viewtopic.php?f=19&t=446&p=5302&sid=0f2 ... b967#p5302
but came across some not expected behaviour which I first thought were caused by me, doing something wrong.
So I first asked in the thread linked above.
The more things did not behave as expected...and finally I thought it would be a good idea to link that thread also
from here, where problems reports (beside other things) are gathered.

The state of my DM42 is still as describe so this is not one of these ghostly accidents I came across lastly.
Currently it seems, that added programs are no longer listed by the file browser -- now I have a DM42 with a WO-flash, so to say...a write only flash. ;)
I can save programs via USB and the internal file browser but cannot list them to load them afterwards, which is kinda odd.

Next I will transfer all programs to my Linux box, delete some from flash and will see, whether the amount of programs influenced
this behaviour. Will be back then.

Minutes later:
After deleting some file, the previously missed ones were listed again. It looks like the browser can only handle a certain count of files.
More information in the above linked thread.

DM 42 - SN: 00373, Firmware v.:3.13. / 3.13. as compiled by SwissMicros
