Loading User Data off a USB Thumb Drive - an Overview

Question:
What are the steps to load my data off a USB thumb drive?

Answer:

The PC3LE storage interface permits taking a very wide or narrow view of what you can select to load from your stored files. You can load a given file in its entirety, load custom groupings from within a chosen file or be as selective as loading just one single object from within a file. Your choice. Further, once your selections are made, the PC3LE offers some options as to how and where these items will be loaded back into memory.

For complete details on all the selection options and load methods available, please see the PC3LE Owner's Manual starting on pg. 11-6.

The following example illustrates simply loading one file in its entirety.

  1. Insert a compatible USB thumb drive into the back panel USB "Storage" port.
  2. Press the front panel STORAGE mode button, you will see:
  3. Press [LOAD]:
  4. Next you will see listed (alphabetically) any files previously saved to the drive. If needed, use the data wheel to scroll and highlight the file to be loaded. Then press [Ok]. Our example file here is named "MYFILE.PLE"
  5. Next you will be presented with two choices on how to proceed in loading the selected file(s). You can either [OvWrte] (overwrite) all existing objects in user memory and replace them with this new file's contents -OR- you can [Append] (add) this file's contents into available space. In our example here we have selected [Append].
  6. Finally, a message will appear on screen indicating the file is "Loading..." followed by "Updating Categories" and lastly a confirmation of "Objects loaded" when done. You will then be brought back to the main Storage Mode screen as seen in step 2 above..

    Done. The content you loaded will now be found in its respective mode and designated ID. i.e. Programs will be found in Program Mode, Setups in Setup, Songs in Song etc. at the ID from which it was originally saved (or possibly an incrementally higher ID depending on your load method in step 5 and what ID's were already occupied at the start).
