Compact Flash on L65 processor

Hello all,


I have ControlLogix L65 processor and I have a CompactFlash card with a program on it. The Program attributes indicates it is for an L61 Processor. As such, RSLogix5000 will not let me restore the program to the controller and I do not have an L61 processor laying around.


Question: How do I pull the program off the CompactFlash card and load it into RsLogix 5000 in order to change the processor type of the program?

Yeah its a huge Compact Flash from the ancient days. So I can just grab a CF reader and pull the .ACD file off of it right?

The CompactFlash stores an image file that contains the firmware and the user program, rather than the *.ACD file (which is actually a compressed archive of many files, which 7Zip can read).

Do you have a CF reader you can get the image off the card with ? I have a 1756-L61 and could put the image on a CF, load it, then upload if the program is v19 or v20.

Thank you Ken for the offer, I will go grab a CF reader, as I cannot send this program out, else the spooky men will put me in a dark cell and throw away the keys!

I think you will find that the image can't be "decompiled" back into an RSLogix 5000 project, or loaded into a different model of controller.

If your local A-B office can't loan you a 1756-L61, I can lend one for the cost of shipping.
