Sd Card Access Reboots Spider Jam


Best Answer rchibnik , 30 June 2013 - 06:27 AM

Strange behavior. Could be a problem with the software but sounds unlikely - I mean, saves a JAM file but not a WAV. You've already successfully flashed 2.09 - maybe try an older firmware?

Reformat the 1GB card in the amp, rather than on the computer?

 

Here's a free JAM to WAV converter

I went to bestbuy and bought a 4G SD CARD (class 6) rated at 30m/s

I placed it into the amp and tried formatting it.

 

it rebooted. I've tried saving a file and it rebooted. Does it not like the 4G size?

 

I stuck an old and slow 1G SD CARD and I was able to save .JAM files but not .WAV files, it just reboots the amplifier

 

Please advise.

thanks

Jack

I've already tried flashing with the latest firmware 2.09 and that didn't help.

Spider jam only compat with 2gb cards. Find some on eBay and stock up. You might be able to format your 4gb as a fat16 2gb on your windows computer. That might give some joy

Can't believe no update from 2.09. Isn't that from 2010?

yes the latest firmware is old

 

I've tried a 1G and format it to fat16 and still the same problem. maybe it's a hardware problem.

it seems to save as a .jam file fine.

it would be nice to have a third party software that can convert that to a wave somehow.

Amp reboots whenever I try to access the SD card.  Cannot even format.  Using a 2gb card.  Please advise.

I have the same problem , either the amp shuts off and reboots , sometimes just from inserting the card , or it locks up and I can't do anything with the menu and I have to turn it off and back on . I just got this amp , does anyone know what to do about this or is it junk and needs to be sent back ?

I too am having a problem with the Spider Jam (2.09) rebooting down every time I turn the dial in order to view my WAV audio files on my 2 GB SD card.  I have tried everything I can think of and spent hours upon hours researching this problem, all to no avail.  I have formatted the card via the Spider Jam and then reformatted to the F16 format (or whatever it is) via my Mac desktop.  I haven't read a resolution from Line 6 anywhere.  According to other internet postings, this seems to be a significant issue to many Spider Jams.  Please help.
