Re: XMD cannot open the file image.mfs

yes I have already verified this address in BSP setting -> xilmfs, the base address is 0x5f000000

the image.mfs file must be located in a particular folder to be can download?

 


 

 


1.Which board you are targeting xapp1026 for ?

 

2.Had you tried to program your FPGA with .bit and .bmm avaiable in ready to download folder?

 

3. If you programmed your FPGA successfully then select Tools  XMD Console. From within the XMD, navigate to the location where the image.mfs file has been placed (for example, cd /code/xapp1026_13_1/ml605_Axi/
ready_for_download/).


4.From this location, download the image with the applicable command:

 

5. Are you able to connect with microblaze mdm ?

 

6.Then try with

XMD% dow -data image.mfs 0x5F000000

 

Can you please try the above and let me know ?

Hi there.

  As you see, there are many free image tools online. But I don't suggest you to use them to do with your image work. Because I always believe that the free tools online do not have so many professional functions as the paid ones. And it is said that some of them might contain some virus. Check some free trials of the paid image opening tools to  first before you make your final decision if possible. I also suggest you choose one whose way of processing is simple and fast. It can save a lot of time for you. Remember to do your conversion work according to its tutorial page about how to get it started. I hope you success. Good luck.

Re: XMD cannot open the file image.mfs

I have the same issue. But when I try to navigate to right directory in XMD, it jumps out another error:

couldn't change working directory to "/ethernet_try2_hw_platform/": no such file or directory.

I am pretty sure this directory exists.  And downing bit stream and "connect mb mdm" are both successful.

 

Besides, I try to use "dow -data C:\Users\sixinglu\xilinx_projects\ethernet_try2\ethernet_try2_hw_platform\image.mfs 0x10000", it has the same error:

Cannot OPEN File

 

Is there any other possible mistake I made?

 

PS: my board is Spartan-6 XL45, EDK version is 14.6

 

Thank you very much!

Now I solve the problem by copying the image.mfs into XMD directory. Although I still cannot figure out why i cannot negative to another directory with command "cd" .

you can copy the file into a directory, then open the "ISE Design Suite Command Prompt" and run "xmd" command there.

Do not open XMD in SDK.

Hi, its realiy difficult to understand the words" From within the XMD, navigate to the location where the image.mfsfile has been placed (in ready_for_downloadfolder)." _____  in fact,  u can do it as fllows in XMD console (for AC701)

 

XMD% cd d:/xilinx/myworkspace/ready_to_download
XMD% dow -data image.mfs 0xbf000000
Downloading Data File -- image.mfs at 0xbf000000

Progress ...............................................................................................................Done
XMD%

 

note: its not "cd\xx\xx\...." to navigate

hi,

 

XMD uses the same MS-DOS commands to navigate into different locations.

 

You can use the pwd command to know which location XMD is launched.

 

To navigate into the project location you can copy and paste the location using these square brackets {}.

 

Refer to the snapshot attached.
