    PanelView 7 cannot write to SD card "File Open"

    Hi,
    I have a setup (first for me) with a Micrologix 1400, PanelView Plus 7 and a Yaskawa A1000 drive.
    Everything was working fine on Friday morning when I had my IP network set to 192.168.2.xx
    Everything was communicating, my drive values where displayed on the HMI and when the machine ran I could write a .csv file to my SD Card.
    Then I had IT come in to try and connect me to our network, to try and get remote access via TightVNC and a Tablet.
    IP addresses were changed to 10.0.1.xxx, this got my machinery onto the network.
    But obviously messed up my project.
    Had to go into FactoryTalk and recreate the communications path, change MSG instructions in RSLogix to match IP and set RSLinx to the new IP.
    Ok, everything working again, except, when trying to write to the SD card, I get an error that cannot write, the file is already open.
    I deleted the original file and created a new DataLog.csv file and still I get the error. My recipes on the same card work OK.
    Any suggestions?

    Good morning @forqnc,

    That's very odd? Can you confirm the new .MER you downloaded to the PVPlus with the new PLC IP address still has the correct path for the Memory Card?

    Yes Shawn, checked and double checked my location.
    Every time the path is correct and should work, I get an error that the file is already open.

    Good afternoon @forqnc,

    That is really strange! Can you try a new memory card?

    I tried 3, 2 brand new 32GB with a full format and a smaller 32Mb
    All the same.

    @forqnc,

    Wow, never seen that before - it almost sounds like the path is set to the internal memory, not external. I guess I would try "flashing" the PVPlus to the latest minor firmware. It that doesn't work, feel free to send me your file and I'll try it here ;-)
