    Exclamation Firmware Overwritten

    Hi guys,

    This is my first post, i'm desesperated with a Multicam 1000 series M CNC router.


    I´ve overwritten original firmware with trash (by error) and now cnc router doesn't work.

    I don't have original 3 firmware files and i've looked for it with no luch. Maybe someone could release it?

    I think 3 files may be something like J2_xxx.bin, h4std.uc & h4ldr.uc


    Thanks in advance!

    Re: Firmware Overwritten

    are you without support (to, just like me right after the bill was settled :-((( )
    anyway, long time ago, had lost of fun since with my MG204 ~2000
    I ran into the same problem like you're havin' now when installing new firmware
    the proces / program(motionmechanic) leave's lot's of room for mistakes
    pretty sure my files will be to old for you, you can have them anyway, I don't need them any more :-)
    I run it another controller, although the old one still works if you now where to kick . . .
    let me/us now how you're getting on please
    good luck

    Re: Firmware Overwritten

    You're right kessfrees , the lack of support is very bad and always money ahead.

    I appreciate sincerely if you can send me the files, I 'm not really sure it will be compatible but i have nothing to loose, now the controller is as usable as a rock.

    With motionmechanich the only thing you can do is save NRAM with parameters of the machine (but not extract the firmware completely, i think) and send a firmware that you own (that three files in the same order) to flash.

    That NRAM file is stored as .uc and contains something like this:


    /* --->

    Maybe the next option will be get another controller/driver, but first i'm gonna try all possible options.

    Re: Firmware Overwritten

    OK....I need to know what version of software that you have.

    Exit jobserver
    Find motion mechanic
    if you have a gray screen, goto Tools and goto Terminal
    at the >
    Goto File and capture NVRAM

    cut and paste what you see on the site, I think I might actually have the fimrware file.

    I don't know about a DBI file, there is one mention of it on his forum though :
    https://www.cnczone.com/forums/comme...ml#post1172937
    But I doubt if this will be any help to you.

    If I my suggest, retrieve and post your'e machine specifications here, following these instructions :
    https://www.cnczone.com/forums/multi...ml#post1657662
    And for someone like MCP.

    Also, I can not open the "Firmware Update" program.
    Since it requires you to specify the "DBI_file.mdb" in the connection settings

    I found the original parameters file.
    And I received the "User Init" file from the Multicam service center in Russia
