  • Bulk Erase with FileTransfer.exe using Command Line

    Hello Everyone,

    I need to do a bulk erase from a Pixxi LCD using FileTransfer.exe, but through a command line.
    Is there any parameter to do this? I could only find the /d parameter but I'm not sure if this does a bulk erase or only for a specific file.

    Thank you and have nice day!

    Hi Henry,

    To perform erase in flash using filetransfer you need use an input file containing the erase instructions. Here's an example instruction:

    $64KBBlockErase start count
    where 'start ' is the position where the erase begins and 'count' it the number of 64kB blocks to be erased

    Another option is to use the instruction:
    This erases the entirely of the flash chip

    Once you've decided what you need to use. Save it to a file, ie. 'erase.txt'. You can then use the file as an input to the file transfer tool. You can do this by running the command:

    FileTransfer.exe $erase.txt /cCOMX
    where COMX is the target COM port where the display is connected.

    Best Regards,

      Hi Ferdinand,

      It works!
      Additionally, I needed to add an "/s" to the command to start the erase.
      Otherwise I was only shown the help page.

      Thank you for your help!
