If you inserted the batteries without first shutting off the scanner, then it is likely the SD card is corrupted.just got trx1 and all the downloads went great. Up and scanning until I put batteries in and the scanner went haywire. Did it mess up sd card. Will I have to reformat card.The battery setting was correct.
Just curious...did you eject the scanner from the computer before disconnecting it? That can corrupt the card as well.The scanner was off I had just picked it up off my desk after taking power adapter off to use on phone so I know it was off and no power to it. It did have the USB cable attached to scanner but not hooked to any power source.
Good to hear Whistler responded that way. That's a problem I had not heard of before but I guess final inspection checks are not fool proof. I picked the TRX-1 mainly because I liked the way the display looked. Not the most scientific method for making a selection but I am pleased with the radio so far. I still have a few bugs to work out. When I manually go to "Browse Library" it tells me "Database files not found on SD Card. Please reinstall, so I have to sort through that problem.Called Whislter and as soon as I told them what was going on they knew the problem. I have 3 keys on the keypad not working, its liked they are glued down. He said to send it back for a new one.THANKS WHISLTER for quick action. Its the left arrow, number 1 and number 7 key on the keypad.
