    I have tried alot to get USB working for filetransfers but still have alot of issues. Sometimes the USB is not mounted properly and just show up with a random name but mostly it shows up with it’s proper name and can be accessed/read but always gives me transfer errors for larger files such as MD01:Read error 30 in block 106575 etc…
    Writing to the device from the Amiga is completly out of the question since it will all be garbled data that never can be read after a reboot on the Amiga. When i try to read files that have been copied over from pc to the USB, smaller files less than about 100KB usually works but larger files such as 1MB and over are doomed to fail.
    Everything copied over from the amiga and tried to be read on the PC are garbled/unreadable.
    I have looked all over internet to find others with similar problems but found no one else reporting these problems.
    Any help regarding this is greatly appreciated.

What board revision are you using? Also can you make sure you’re running the 1.8 firmware? Firmware and drivers should match.

Thankyou for reaching out to me.
I think the firmware installed from you, is 1.8. and it’s those drivers i have downloaded. Should i use the Beta drivers 1.81 instead?
When i look at the memory card i can only se the name of the bios, Boot.bin created 17/06/2021. How can i check what Biosversion i have?
The card is Rev 3 2020/09/17

Do you suggest i should download " * ZZ9000 Firmware 1.8 BOOT.bin for Zorro 3" and unpack the file to the memorycard just to make sure it’s the 1.8 version then?

I was a bit nervous but i dl the file,copied it over to memorycard and all seems to boot/start as usual inkluding my transfer errors when i start to read from the USB. Nothing is changed.

Hi sorry I missed your reply. I don’t work for MNT, I’m just a board owner. The firmware zip should be zorro 3 from here, and you should make sure you have matching drivers installed. There’s also a tool called ZZTop in the driver package. Can you run ZZTop and post the core and voltage values? Can you also run the Bus Test on ZZTop. It should fill part of the screen with garbage then display “Done. 0 errors.” towards the top left of the screen.

Hi Steve, this is what i got.

ZZtop v1.1
Zorro version:3
Firmware version ZZ9000 1.8
Core temp 48.7
Aux Voltage 1.79-1.8
Core voltage 1.0

Bus test completed several times with no errors reported.

Hi, I would recommend to wait for the upcoming (very soon now) FW1.9 release where USB storage works automatically without special setup.
