SBC68EC, new last month (5/7/07) gets an error message from the Network Bootloader stating it could not erase flash.

I have seen another post with the same problem, but with no thread for an answer.  I attached a screen shot in JPG format.

Any help is appreciated.  I am sure it is something simple - usually is.

Thanks.

sometimes happens also in my borad, but i retry one or two times and than it works. Sometimes i receive also timeout errors....
Anyway i think it's better if you attach error log generated by modtronix bootloader.

Well, in response to OmarZ's post, I tried again, and again, and again....  Sometimes the third time is the charm - it just is not in my case.  Time after time, the board connects fine and then simply says it cannot erase the flash.  As far as OmarZ's recommendation, I did not find a log file in the Netloader directory, so either I missed it or the only details available are in the scrolling window which I took a snapshot of.

***  Has anyone else seen this error?  ***

I was thinking that the UDP packets exchanged between the units may not (for some reason or another) be making it to the board.  I read some posts in which the switch did not correctly forward the packets onto the board.  I was originally using a Linksys 4 port switch, so I tried using a brand new Netgear 5 port 10/100/1000 switch, and came up with the same result.

I doubt switch does allow me to connect to the board via the embedded default web pages on

Lastly, I am going to try a 10mb hub which has no choice but to forward the packets and see if I can get something happening.

If anyone else has seen this, please let me know.

Thanks.

Hello

This problem was solved in V1.06 of the network bootloader. The new SBC68EC boards reply with a new revision number, which the Network Bootloader did not recognize, and caused errors. From your screen shot I see you are using V1.05. Please download the latest version at:

Please let me know if this solves your problem.

Admin,

Thanks for your help.  That did it.

I hope this thread helps other people.

I have to say, you guys are great with customer service.  I have had to contact MX twice now, and both times the problem has been resolved.

Thanks Again.
