Magic.cfg and uninstalling ML
« on: July 18, 2017, 08:44:20 PM »
Hi all,

I have a question I can't seem to find the answer.

I formatted an SD in order to remove magic lantern. It seemed successful, but once I viewed the SD card contents on my laptop I noticed that there was still a remaining ML file on the card itself called magic.cfg (ML>Settings>magic.cfg).

Just wondering why this file has remained, and if so whether it is ok to delete. I'm completely removing ML from my camera, and want to re-use the SD card, but I wasn't sure whether leaving this file untouched on the card might cause issues in-camera if magic lantern is completely uninstalled.

Thanks in advance,

Walter Schulz

Formatting the card will *not* uninstall ML completely.
Run ML installation for uninstall and follow instructions.
