[App] - Innotab SD Scanner
#1
Here is an app that runs on the PC. Insert your SD card to your PC and run this app to auto build your database with the apps on the SD Card.

If you have a device with WIFI (2s, 3s etc) then create a file in the root of the SD called ueid.txt and simply put your Unit EID in there so it will always use it.  The locations of the apps are as follows:

SD:\LLN\APPS\Books
SD:\LLN\APPS\Carts
SD:\LLN\APPS\Games
SD:\LLN\APPS\Other

Go here to download http://spiffydirectory.com/software/InnotabSDScanner-27

Hello,
I just tried to use this scanner to update the database on my SD card. It added the entries to the database but stripped the icons, deleted all of the titles and descriptions from the apps already present in the database. It just left me with paths and no idea what the title are or where the icons went. Confused

This app is still a work in progress. If you place a file called info.txt into each app location and put the app name on the first line, it will use that name. If you place the app icon named icon.ico in the app directory then it will use that icon when importing to the database. This was documented somewhere. Can't remember if it was in the actual app or not.

No it was not included in the app. The problem is, when I look at the original files for the apps there is no .ico file in them. Is it possible that the icon is embeded in the app itself, in some other form? The apps that I am referring to are mostly backups of bought cartridges. BTW I have a Innotab 3.

Ah it looks like I put the info on the Innotab Manager app that has this functionality built in along with other features. http://spiffyhacks.com/thread-483.html

The files do not come with a .ico file. If you made the backups yourself, you will need to manually make the image icons. If there is a database with the values already in there, the icons are stored in the database. The icons on the tablet do not read from files, but rather from a database field. You can use the sqlite firefox plugin to open the database and import the icon files or save them from the database to .ico files. There should be an app on these forums to convert images to icon files.

Thank you for your response and the information. I have already installed the plugin and will try to import the icon files. I've already tried converting png and jpg files using the icon converter but I get an error that the resulting icon files are invalid and cannot be read. I've even tried converting the files to 16bit bmp's and resizing to 57x57 before converting but I still get the same error. Hopefully, the plugin will be more successful. Thank again.

I have had issues with other SQL programs, but the firefox plugin one seems to work well as long as the converted icon file is correct to begin with.

You're right, it worked like a charm! I figured out what I was doing wrong with the icon converter and after that everything went well. I'm quite happy right now. Thanks so much for your input! Smile

Is it Carts and not carts? Are there subfolders under the Carts folder? I don't remember if the carts find them simply by the .bin files in the Carts folder or by subfolders.
