60D - "ML directory not found! Please copy all ML files" message
« on: December 11, 2020, 02:21:18 PM »
Hi!

Trying for the 1st time to install ML on my 60D.

Firmware is 1.1.1

When I try to install ML, I get the message "ML directory not found! Please copy all ML files" (which I copied already).

It also shows in a list on the right side: Firmware 0 / Bootdisk 0 / RAM_EXE -1 / Update -1

Format card with FAT32 file system.
Known bug with ExFAT, Big Sur and ML.

I can confirm this behavior too. Thanks Walter for the tip.

Now if we want to go back to ExFat after installing ML, this doesn't seem possible?

Since we would prefer to record while in ExFat for obvious reasons.

Is there some sort of a workaround for this so called bug?

Unless I need to install Catalina onto one of my hackintoshes on a spare drive? Ha.

I have no problems mounting and writing to (or copying from) ExFat drives with Linux, with two ExFat SD cards containing ML.

As a Mac user, you can just boot a Linux live USB.  Pick a newbie Linux distro, like Mint, Ubuntu, Pop!_OS, etc.

Of course, format the SD card in-camera prior to copying the ML files.

It might be prudent to put the ML files onto the USB stick (after you have burned the Linux live OS onto it), and then mount it, and then copy those files onto the SD card -- instead of trying to mount any of your Mac partitions.  The Mac filesystem is notoriously fragile.
