HXR-NX5U 128 GB External Flash Memory Unit

Hi,

Over the Christmas break whilst operating my NXCAM, I was getting intermittent operation with the external memory unit, the 128 GB Flash Memory Unit HXR-FMU128. Finally the NXCAM threw up its hands and tossed a C:13:04 error code onto the display. When this code is up, the mem unit cannot be formatted or read from/written to in the usual manner.

So, time to investigate! I removed the flash mem unit from the NXCAM and removed its outer cover (#000 Phillips head works fine). Discovered that the flash memory is actually just a SSD card, Toshiba THNS128GG4BNAA, with SATA power and data connectors, nestled into an internal assembly. Removed the 4 screws that hold it down and reseated the SATA connections, reversed the dis-assembly steps, tried it out, and the unit was A-OK! Error code no more!

If your ext mem unit is giving you fits, maybe this will work for you, too.

Regards,

Brad

Interesting, I wonder if you could swap out a bigger ssd drive. Not that I need one that large.
Was the ssd card soldered in or just plugged in?
