WiFi SD Card
#1
Lightbulb 
today i came across this Toshiba FlashAir which is essentially an sd card with integrated Wifi, there are other brands but i came across this blog post guide that shows you how to use it to wirelessly send 3d model files to a 3d printer. 

so my idea is to see if it's possible to use this sd card in my Devialet Expert 220pro allowing me to update the config without having to remove the sd card every time. 

but out of the box this wifi sd card is read only via it's wifi. so that's why this guide https://blog.prusaprinters.org/easy-wire...-sd-cards/ for the 3d printer solution is necessary to enable read and write access over the wifi, this requires version w-03 of the sd card as version w-01, w-02 & w-04 apparently don't work. 

has anyone tried this or thought to try this?

The card comes in 3 sizes, 16/32/64 GB. My experience is that the largest card which will work in my 140 Pro is 8 GB. I've tried a 16 GB card and it didn't work in my 140 Pro..

So unless you can get a 16 GB card to work in your amp then you won't get the FlashAir card to work because the amp doesn't seem to be able to read cards larger than 8 GB.

i just had a quick Google you are correct for the w-04 model but the w-03 model does in fact come in a 8gb size, and only that model can be made read and write whereas the w-04 cant

I just Googled "Toshiba FlashAir" and didn't realise there were different models.

I think it's going to be something you're going to have to try for yourself. Be aware that people have reported problems getting their amps to read a new file when they've just overwritten the old config file with a new one and there is a thread here over dealing with those sort of problems. One recommendation is to first reformat the card using an app available from the SD card authority and you're not going to be able to do that over wifi. If you run into problems you're probably going to have to access the card in the normal way on your computer and either manually delete the existing config file before copying over the new file or reformat the car before copying over the new file so you may still find yourself having to do things the old way at times, even if you can get the wifi process to work.

i haven't run into that those issues with my unit, at least none that could be fixed with a power off on with the remote or front button, but like you say i won't know unless i try. 

so i will add it to my todo list
