AMS doesn't stop beeping

We updated the VU-AMS device with the latest firmware from
But today the VU-AMS device gives a continuous beep that doesn’t seem to stop after we insert the batteries.

Hi AMS user,

Thank you for your question!

From VU-AMS firmware version 1.9.1 and up we fixed the 'no file bug'.
We also implemented a continuous beep incase anything else (not solved by the 'no file bug'-bugfix) would go wrong when starting a recording. We realize this continuous beep is pretty annoying, but we though anything would be better than having no data recorded at all.

The reason you get this continues beep is probably because you enabled the "Automatically start new file after file is stopped"-function (see image below). This will always start a new file in all scenarios, unless the VU-AMS device is stopped with the VU-DAMS suite. When you have no CF card in the device, the device is still 'armed' and you put in the batteries; the auto restart function will try to start a new file and fail because there’s no CF card in the device. Hence the continuous beep.

You can solve this by putting a CF card in the device, putting in batteries and stopping the (auto started) recording with the VU-DAMS suite.
