FT3DR micro SD KO4LKZ on 28/1/21
Hello, I'm new to the forum and to the hobby of HAM. Just got my Technician's license this past Monday I know this topic has been brought up before, I searched first, found the thread, asked a question and haven't received an answer. Am I impatient? Maybe. That being said, I'm posting the email I sent to Yaesu amateur equipment support....since I haven't heard back from them yet either. Yes, I understand I may be impatient.

I have recently purchased an FT3DR I’m having an issue with it not reading the microSD card. I’ve followed the step by step directions on several online sites & forums..
I was successful in the formatting the card in the radio, writing the existing programming to it, then importing that file into the programming software on my laptop.. Then I saved all the new channels on the memory tab then exported the new version to the card. I inserted it back into the radio while the radio was turned off. I turned it on, then I followed the same steps in the menu --sdcard,-- backup, read from card, hit ok, (did nothing) hit okay again, then it just beeped twice and goes back to the read write menu. So,it seems that the radio can write to the card, but not read from the card.

The microsd card is a 16 gig
The programming software is FT3D-ADMS-11 EXP version 1.0.0.0
I’m running Windows 10 on an HP laptop

Any suggestions?
