Prime 4+ : no source drive available, after formatting 'system reserved' drive

I installed a internal SSD, formatted it … and by acident I guess I also formatted the build in ‘system reserved’ drive… :frowning:

Now when loading songs from BeatSource I get a message:

no source drive available Beatgrid, cue, loop and waveform data will not be saved. … To enable connect a compatible drive…

What can I do to get the ’ system reseved’ drive back ??

The disk in the Prime4+ should not contain more than 1 partition, so System Reserved shouldn’t even be there.

You could try a partition tool in computer mode to remove it and expand your main music partition.

Laat weten hoe je vaart. :wink:


@Bart_Kamminga Or perhaps just reformat it again.

All storage media connected to the PRIME 4 should be formatted to either FAT32 or exFAT with an MBR (Master Boot Record) style partition structure. For larger file systems (1TB and greater) we recommend formatting drives to the exFAT format.

If you need further assistance, please reach out directly to our support channel:

Thanks, just removed all partitions from the ssd, formatted again and no error messages anymore.

(my first thought was the ‘system reseverd’ partition was a Prime 4+ internal storage partion.)
