Edit RAW file

Post by danielCL »

Is it possible to edit the saved raw file name or delete a raw file from dm41 itself instead of doing it from computer

No, maintenance of files in FAT storage must be done from the PC side.

One inelegant, but still workable solution is to simply save another copy with the correct filename and then purge the duplicate(s) when you next connect, as there is almost certainly more than enough room for the extra files.

Another inelegant solution is to save the prog with alpha register non empty and different from the file name you wish to delete. You will trigger the “NAME ERROR” error, which leads to delete the previous file without creating the new one.
At least with the actual firmware this works. And yes I would qualify this as a bug, but bugs have someone useful results (like this one, or like in the past the door to access synthetic programming…).
