tried using windows 10 file copy

copied card contents are not recognized in maschine+

no error during copy, files appear present on target media via windows explorer

all cards properly ejected, maschine+ always properly shutdown

please advise

    What you’re trying to do is not possible, because the SD card only holds the content part of the installations but no none of the other vital information. Thus the M+ has no idea all that content is already there.

    You have to use the installer.

    That is the way.

    attempting copy of contents of maschine+ sdcard (downloaded expansion packs), from og 64 gig to new 1tb that matches specifications


    tried copying expansions packs from pc too - maschine+ does not recognize these, tho files are present on the target media

    attempted verbatim copy of og 64gig sdcard data via linux ~


    sudo dd if=/dev/mmcblk0p1 | gzip -9 > masc.dd.gz


    unmount, swap to target sd, then ~

    gzip -d masc.dd.gz - | sudo dd of=/dev/mmcblk0p1 *****=1M


    put target sd into windows machine, scanned for errors, ... no errors...


    ...maschine+ still does not recognize expansion packs even with verbatim partition copy



    is maschine+ locked down by unique sdcard id ? I suppose I can get hardware to try something like this as on github



    anybody get this worked out ?


    I leave a few breadcrumbs here in case somebody else stumbles along similar path
