• 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:

Maybe a major screwup on my RS107?

My bride got me this for an anniversary present cause we travel a lot. I started messing about with it as we will, now I'm getting a message that says"Data Base files not found on SD Card.
Please re-install.
So just how bad did I screw the pooch here?

It's not fatal. Hopefully you have an external SD reader or an internal one in your PC. If you've installed the iScan software, you can put the card in your reader, pull down the updates menu, and select Check For Library Updates. After download it will ask you if you want to update the channels and then the SD card.

Once this is performed, you can return the SD card to the radio and the database should be available.

If the above does not fix the problem you may need to use the Scanner/SD Card pull down menu to select Prepare Scanner Memory/SD Card for use.

Thanks Dave, worked like a charm..Now I get to re-learn the rest of .. It's either not as simple as everyone claims or I'm just a techno-dolt.
The bride says I should lean towards the latter
