Troubleshooting: Create Account Book error – The device is not ready

From AutoCount Resource Center

Question: I did test the connection to SQL instance successfully, but upon clicking on finish while create new account book, system prompted message “The device is not ready”. Why?

Version: 1.8 / 1.9 / 2.0

Possible Reason:

The database folder you have chosen does not exist or the external storage device is not well connected.


Please check the database folder path, make sure the path is correct, valid and can access.

If D:\AutoCount Data is not valid, you may change it to C:\AutoCount Data, then you should be able to create the account book.
