Updating Mini Maxx... Error message w/ firmware
Ok, I've Have not downloaded any tunes into the truck with the Mini Maxx before (EVER). I've been using tuner as a set of gauges pretty much as I haven't installed it, other than the power supply and OBDII port plug-in.
I finally got my exhaust together and I wanted to download the tuner to ensure everything worked before I install the exhaust.
I was told to update the tuner before I install the tunes (because I bought it in October last year and it hadn't been updated since .39 I believe.)
I updated the SD card last night (using the Automatic updater to the newest update (.49).
I went to update the firmware first today and when I hit the yes button the tuner stated
Unable to open file
Ensure SD Card is inserted and try again.
I've tried reloading the firmware and it did the same error message.
I tried the manual specific vehicle update, and it still gave me the same error message when I went to update the firmware.
So I figured I'd try the Full SD Card Download. I downloaded the whole card, however I can't copy and paste it into the SD Card; my computer says there isn't enough space on the card.
I saw that I should not erase or remove any files from the SD card without H&S Tech stating to do so, so I haven't done anything to make more room on the current SD Card.
Does anyone have any advise to help me with this issue...
Should I download the tune first? Then try to update the firmware? The website states to do it the other way around, firmware then tunes...
