ADRV9002 SDK 16 - Can't write new SD card image

I have followed the debug procedures SD Card Image SDK 13+. Setup is ZC706 mother board + Rev C 9002 eval card.

When the dotNet Disk Imager runs it returns an error: "Unable to init write to device. End of Central Directory record could not be found.

The old files that came with the card seem extremely out of date:


Please help.

Thanks,
Bruce

    Hi Bruce,

    An "End of Central Directory record could not be found" error usually occurs when a compressed archive (e.g. a .zip file) is corrupted during the download. It could mean that the user's internet connection or the connection to our server isn't stable.

    The fix may be as simple as trying the download again. If that doesn't work, I suggest you check if there is a firewall or any security software interfering with the connection or the download process.

    As for the files in the SD card image, I don't think that these are of any concern.
    I hope that helps.

    Kind Regards,
    Michał

  • Thank you for the reply.

    We have an extremely stable broadband connection, and I also tried the download 3 different times with the same result. 

    In the firewall I allowed all connections to
                    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Analog Devices\ADRV9001 Disk Imaging Utility\flashSD.exe"
                    “C:\Program Files (x86)\dotNet Disk Imager.exe”

    Still I get the identical error

    Thanks,
    Bruce

    Hi Bruce,

    May I ask what size of SD card you're using? We recommend a minimum of 16 GB.
    It might also be worth double checking that the SD card itself isn't write locked, and that there isn't any security or encryption software interfering.
    If these options don't fix it, then I would recommend trying a different SD card.
    Let me know how that goes. In the meantime I will check with our Software team for any other potential causes for your issues.

    Kind Regards,
    Michał

    Hi Bruce,

    I just got word back from our Software team. The hash in your screenshot does not match the hash the we have for that file. The hash you should be seeing for that file is

    1d0e64c901842066a23cf88a55d83314

    and the file size 1249772 kB.

    I suggest you check the size of the file that was downloaded, and ensure that there isn't any firewall, security software, or VPN interfering with your connection.

    Kind Regards,
    Michał
  • I am using the SD card which came with the ADRV9002NP/W1 eval board. It has 1 GB on the boot partition and I'm not sure what total capacity because the model sticker is covered up by one that reads "for ADRV9001 TES software R0.2 2020.12".

    It is not write-locked.

    I don't have encryption or security software that interferes as far as I know. 

    Thanks,
    Bruce
