OSCAR-Selecting a File
#1
Question 
OSCAR-Selecting a File
I am working on a newer Chromebook and have successfully downloaded Linux and subsequently OSCAR. When it comes to downloading a given file from my Dreamstation SD card, however, I am at a loss. Would appreciate the precise steps in doing so, namely selecting which file from that on the SD card? Open that file? Open OSCAR before or after doing so? Then selecting the SD card icon for download? Thus far, precise instructions on the Chromebook download instructions for this step are lackingDont-know Many thanks prospectively.

Hi Madqdog! Welcome

You select the SD card, not any particular file.

Many thanks. Therefore simply open the USB drive and select the card on the OSCAR icon?

RE: OSCAR-Selecting a File
Before OSCAR can access the SD card, you must open the Chromebook file manager, then select the card and tick off 'Share with Linux'. That only needs to be done once, as long as you use the same SD card. Then you can open OSCAR and it should find your SD card, if I recall correctly. Once it has found your SD card, OSCAR will remember that drive and disk label. (It's been a while since I first used my Chromebook with OSCAR)

RE: OSCAR-Selecting a File
Pholnyk's help was greatly appreciated. On my Chromebook (OS 89) one simply transfers the file to Linux and the download proceeds automatically. That file on the SD card is labeled P-SERIES and was downloaded to OSCAR 04/17. HOWEVER, when I attempted to download again today (04/27_ from the card now in Linux labeled P-SERIES (1), OSCAR does not download; namely, I can still find data only up to  04/17.

So what should I do? Eliminate the old record and start from scratch. Any detailed advice would be most appreciated.  Sleep-well

RE: OSCAR-Selecting a File
It sounds like you used the file manager again with the same SD card, and told it to share with Linux again, so Linux created a new filename with the (1) added.

It's not necessary to share with Linux each time you insert the same SD card.

Just insert the SD card, ignore the message to use the file manager, and open OSCAR. It should find your card as soon as you click import.
