NI-cDAQ 9132 Memory card use

Go to solution


I bought the ni cdaq9132 instrument, I want to store the data collected by the sensor in the memory card, so I bought the memory card, but when I inserted the memory card into the instrument, there was no change in the system memory, what should I do?

On the assumption you are using NI Linux RT, you won't see any changes in NI MAX. You will need to open a shell window and navigate to the appropriate folder to see the storage card. It should be mounted in the /media folder, which is were removable devices are visible. If you are new(ish) to Linux, Google is your friend for finding useful commands.

There is a possibility that the WES7 on the cDAQ does not have a driver for your SD card. Try SD Card Is Not Showing Up in Windows 7, 8, or 10. Make sure your SD card is not broken and can be detected on your host PC.

There are recommended SD cards that have been verified by NI as well. 

Solved: Which SD cards are recommended to be used with the cDAQ 9133?

It looks like only cards up to 32GB are supported and ensure you've formatted it with FAT32
