If you are not live-scoring a race, you do not need to connect your MiniTrack to your computer with an Ethernet cable. You can simply pull the data from the controller using a USB drive. It is also a good practice to pull USB data from your controllers - even if you did live scoring - to keep in a race data archive on your computer, should questions or concerns ever arise that would require a closer look at the data.
Copy the Data
- Insert a USB drive into one of the MiniTrack's USB ports. We recommend a drive no larger than 4GB since larger drives take longer for the controller to initialize.
- Wait for the controller to beep, indicating that it has detected the USB drive.
- Press Menu > 3 > 2 > 1 to copy the currently active file on the Controller.
Press Menu > 3 > 2 > 2 to copy all files stored in the Controller
- The display will show "Copying-Pls Wait", followed by "Copying-Done" The controller should also beep when the file copy is complete. Once you hear the confirmation beep, you may remove the USB drive.
Please note that data is stored on the Controller for 2 weeks before the data is automatically deleted to make room for new data.
We recommend that you test any USB drive you intend to use prior to race day to ensure that it works correctly with the Controller.
