• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I have been trying to update the firmware on my SD card. I cannot get the PC (tried two of them) to recognize the card via USB. The Icom software installed when the R30 was first connected to both PC's. I have a card reader and the PC will recognize the card and I was able to instal the new .dat file, but after I put the card back in the radio I keep getting a "No File" indication.
Kind of at a loss and looking for advise.
Thank you.

Please disregard. I neglected to put the R30 in SD Card USB mode via the menu. The update worked like a champ!

Well, not quite as expected. I originally pre-ordered from Universal. After I began to see people talking about having received their radios I got in touch with them. They sent me an email explaining that my credit card was denied about six day earlier!! I have no idea why they didn’t get in touch with me.
Anyway, I ordered the radio from HRO (same credit card) and it was here in two days!

Cool, your r30 obviously was delivered as expected.
