Why do I not have access to "ctod" when I insert a memory card into Lexium 32?

Transfer of data from memory card to device is not possible and "ctod" will not be displayed as an option if any of the following events have occurred.

1. Data saved to the memory card is from a device with newer firmware then the device you are attempting to use the memory card in.
2. Data saved to the memory card is from a device with a different power class rating then the device you are trying to use the memory card in.

Example 1.  The information that is saved on the memory card is from a Lexium 32 drive with firmware version 1.16 and the memory card is inserted into a drive with firmware version 1.14.  
In this instance the option to Transfer data from memory card to device will not be allowed and "ctod" will not be available in the HMI menu.  This is to prevent the writing of parameters which exist in newer firmware that are saved on the memory card and may not exist in older firmware.

Example 2. The information that is saved on the memory card is from a Lexium 32 drive of a 24 amp power class and the memory card is inserted into a Lexium 32 drive of a 10 amp power class. 
In this instance the option to Transfer data from memory card to device will not be allowed and "ctod" will not be available in the HMI menu.  This is to prevent the writing motor current parameter values to a drive that does not support the same maximum current settings as saved on the memory card.  

Parameters can be saved to a memory card and transferred to another drive only if the drive is the same model, same firmware level, and also in the case of Lexium 32M, has the same optional modules installed.
