I have an SD in the Live that i can't access in either browser or save mode. It was correctly formatted & in the browser/Save menu appears under 'Internal' with the name i gave it (MPC Samples)

I simply cannot select it, or in fact change it from 'Internal' to anything else shown.

I'm able to switch from 'Places / Content / Expansions, and select any of the options. In any other screen or menu i'm able to select whatever i choose, So there's not a problem with touch screen.

I had access to the SD card previously, but not since updating to OS 2.5

Any help would be appreciated.

Try Reformatting the Card on the Computer 1st. Then Re-insert it in the MPC. If still not recognizing it, Card May be Faulty?

The Mpc recognises the card but pressing on the tab doesn't do anything. It’s like that part of thee touchscreen is dead, but it isn’t. Using that section of touchscreen in other pages is fine. I’ve reformatted, used different SD cards but it still won’t work. Someone on Gearslutz has the same issue.

tap it repeatedly and it works eventually.
same issue here since 2.4 with an sd card and external hd. formatting doesn't change anything.
really annoying.

I’ve had this issue for a couple of updates

If you revert to an earlier version you should find that it will work as before

I spent about 2 hours on the phone with Akai support and they couldn’t work out why this had happened ... from a few Facebook posts it would seem that the other people who have had this problem deleted the factory content (like I had) so maybe that’s the issue !

A workaround is to bookmark the drive so when you press 1 (for example ) it will bring you to the SD card without having to press the drive icon repeatedly like a lunatic

Thanks for the update.

I also deleted the Factory Content.

How do you Bookmark the drive?

Select the drive as normal in the browser , press shift and whichever of the folder locations you want to assign the shortcut to
