Camera Emergency Department / ML installation problems on 7D
« on: June 25, 2014, 06:41:33 AM »
So I've got a Canon 7D, and wanted to install ML. Followed the instructions here:
and everything went fine until I booted up the camera with ML and got two error messages:

"ML/DATA/FONTS.DAT not found"
above the message:
"Card cannot be accessed. Reinsert/change the card or format card with camera."

Hm. Weird. Because FONTS.DAT is exactly where it should be: in ML/DATA. So when I hit the trash can icon, ML loads, but the letters are unreadable. Like, they're not even letters, they're just white noise. So I guessed there might be something wrong with the FONTS.DAT file, so I installed the nightly build from here:

But that build won't work either. And now none of my CF cards are readable by the camera.

The camera isn't completely bricked - if I turn it on without a CF card, I get the usual screen with the "No card" message, and I can access the usual Canon menu. But it won't recognize any of my CF cards, including one that I hadn't touched at all and was working yesterday. So I can't format any of the cards in the camera, because it says "Cannot format. Change card."

I have firmware v2.0.3 installed, and at this point would simply like to try and turn back the clock a few hours so that at least the camera will read my CF cards.

But it's weird - the card with ML installed must be readable, otherwise ML wouldn't install (albeit in a garbled form.) So what gives?

Any updates with your camera ?, were you able to get it to work properly  ? I have a 7d and wanted to try the ML but, after reading this I'm sort  of doubting it .
Thank you! .

Hello , I just upgraded from a t3i to a 7D , I had ML on my t3i and liked some of the features, I read that the  7D doesn't have a stable version , can someone please tell me if it would be safe for me to install the nightly build version? , or is a stable version for the 7d in the way?  , I literally had to borrow money to buy this camera, so I can't really afford to break it ..

Where would I get the latest version of the software?,In case I decide to test it out.
I appreciate everyone's time thank you  :)
