Is my Duet ethernet sd card empty?

  • After having troubles with the duet Wifi i went the Ethernet route. I got my card to read through usb saying Duet WiFi or Ethernet 3D printer control electronics (COM3). I can connect using Repetier which says

    However when i put the sd card in my computer to put my IP address in sys/config.g its not thier. The sd card is blank. Says (G:) 7.20gb free of 7.20GB. I click on it and its empty. I can add a file to it and everything if i want. Am i missing something can this sd card really be empty yet work in Repetier?

    I found the sd card folder structure here
    If i need to add the files where do i get them?

  • ok i found out i can just write the ip in repetier.

    still having trouble after this step. I wish i had more detailed instructions than.

  • Ensure that the /www folder on the SD card is populated with the required web files. So i guess thats whats stopping my page to load because its just blank no error or nothing.

  • wow so that was it.

    If you want to do this start with installing duetwebcontrol on the sd card you will find here.

    make sure it looks like this on your card

    download the device driver zip to your PC and make sure your device manager reads your duet with the sd card installed

    load repetier and connect

    send M552 command and you should see this
    Network is disabled, configured IP address:, actual IP address:

    install your ethernet and send M552 S1 to turn it on
    19:57:33.309 : Network is enabled, configured IP address:, actual IP address:
    you should see something like this.

    load a browser and enter the IP your duet gave you in the browser.

    I'm sorry that you appear to have been send a board with an empty SD card.

    The production process is being changed so that in future, boards will be tested using the same SD card that they will ship with, instead of testing them with one SD card and shipping them with a different one as now.
