SD card not detected on Meural Canvas II

Hi, I recently purchased a Meural Canvas II. I am unable to use an SD card on my device - it is not detected when I put it in. I have followed all the suggestions mentioned on your website but am unable to troubleshoot this. Can someone please help me with this ASAP? Thank you!

Re: SD card not detected on Meural Canvas II

What sd card do you have?

What format is it in? 

What format are the files in? 

did you follow the setup guide for the card?

Re: SD card not detected on Meural Canvas II

I experienced the exact same problem in December 2020 and used and reformatted many of my existing older SD cards to no avail and much frustration.  My last gambit was to buy a brand new SD card, so  I bought a  "SanDisk Extrem Pro 32 GB SDHC Memory Card - Up tp 95MB/S, Class 10, U3, V30 - Black". This worked straight away.  I created 3 folders "meural1" to 3 and the frame recognised the folders for the first time.  

It is not clear to me the technical reason why but many others perhaps could advise.   The fact is for minimal investment it worked.  I also found that the Meural should be powered down and the plug removed always when removing and reinserting the SD card.  Hope this helps . . . .

Re: SD card not detected on Meural Canvas II

As an update to my previous post, I have to admit that I was making an error in following the instructions (my folder was labelled 'meural 1' instead of 'meural1'). Once I changed that, the issue resolved. Thank you all for your input. My advice @gorillashots would be to follow the instructions EXACTLY!

Re: SD card not detected on Meural Canvas II

Hi 

 

I am on my second frame now and still no detection of the camera card...I've done everything support has said.  Bought a new class 10 micro chip card, made folders. The frustration of the customer support even brought me to tears at one point until they were really listening to me and I got  someone that would actually call me back.   I really like this frame and had high hopes getting one without what seems to be a defect,  but I'm ready to not only return the first one but return the second one as well.  This is really bumming me out.   A couple of you said you were able to get it to work. I'd like to try give it one more chance.  Would you guys be able to guide me? Maybe I'll get better advice...lol  Sorry if this all sounds scattered but I'mr really that frustrated.

Re: SD card not detected on Meural Canvas II

They sent me a replacement Frame, this one is fine and can see the SD Card,

but here is the CATCH!

they don't thell you that SD Card can be seen only from the frame it's self not from the App nor web browser, it's a lame crappy design with hefty price. So here is what you need to do to see the SD Card. Basikley I am writing SOP for Nergear/Meural for free sinse their engineers are so busy with other bull **bleep**.

 

1. Make sure you have good quality SD Card (Class 10 UHS) I am using Lexar

2. Create 1 to 4 folders and called them as - meural1 meural2 meural3 meural4

3. Paste your "mpg" pictures in thoes folders (I have about 100 pictures in each folder)

4. Insert the SD Card and Unplug the power of your Frame

5. Plug the power back in and let it boot up completley 

6. Use you hand gestures front of frame and go to "Playlits" 

7. Then try to wave Up or Down till you see the SD Card

DON"T use the APP or Web Browser

Thanks GS.

Yea, Netgear, build an app that can't see the SD card and play the playlist.

Really?  Built by the "C" team?

Shame, as it's a really nice product.

Oh well, it works now.
