ML on several SD Cards with same config
« on: September 21, 2012, 11:06:27 AM »
Hi there,

I'm new using ML and I'm very fascinated about all the features it offers.
My Question was probably already asked but at the moment i dont have time enough to search.

My question is as it is written in the brief description:
I have ML configured as I wanted on one of my SD Cards; how can I copy exactly that to my second card?

Second qestion: Do I have to restart the cam if i have to change the cards?


Thanks in Advance!
Greetings from Germany

To copy ML settings:
- Do a low level in-camera format of the new card
- Enable bootflag on the "new" card using either the installer or EOSCard
- Copy the ML folder and auotexec.bin on the new card

My camera powers down when I open the card door....

Thanks for your answer!
I'll try it when I'm at home.
I thought that if you open the card door the cam just goes in something like a standby mode and doesn't turn off completely...
But I think you would have written more if you have to do anything more than change the card.
Will also try this....

Just don't remove the card before the "confirmation blink"
