Preparing SSD (Solid-State Drive) for GL Logger (only GL3200, GL4200, GL5000 Family)
To read out data or write the configuration via disc drive, you need an eSATAp port on your PC that provides a minimum of 1 A and the delivered eSATA 5 V connection cable.
If no eSATAp port is available you can use an USB to SATA adaptor with power supply.
Please note that the SSD must be formatted as follows:
- Partition type: FAT32
- Allocation unit size: 64 kByte
- Volume label: GINLOGHDD
Windows XP formats with FAT32 only drive discs up to 32 GB. We recommend the format program GUIFORMAT from the company Ridgecrop Consultants Ltd. It is located under http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/guiformat.htm.
The following figure shows the settings or this program.
