65whaler Congratulations!  Your peers have given you enough reputation to put you into the fist level!

Default My first gen Modis freezes

My first gen Modis freezes when I try to save a movie from the scope upper right hand file menu. Can you maintain these units like you would a windows computer: defrag, error check, delete files, disc clean up, or something
The only remedy I can find is force shut down by holding down the power button. Thanks

I don't think it has a conventional internal hard drive you can defrag, just the master CF card in slot. You can try to stabilize the voltage with the AC power adapter plugged into it or try cloning the CF card from a program off a Ubuntu or Linux Mint PC. (A Windows PC probably may not copy all the encrypted protected files of an embedded version of another Windows OS)
Call tech support and if they won't provide any useful information to keep an old Modis going , it's time to take a look inside it or sell it for parts

If that works, Will that restore it to the update level that it is presently at or the old original software level it had when new?

Thanks, I'll need an IT guy for that, and you're right I should upgrade.

What is you're update level? Did that change when you did the system restore? I'm afraid to try that!

I think we were only updated to 15 or 16 something on that machine. As far as I know, the update level is stored in the card. My dealer is the one who showed me that.
