TTask.Create - Invalid Source Device Type Fix

Today I suddenly got this error when I tried to open a task:
ttask.create.jpg
ttask.create.jpg (11.68 KiB) Viewed 863 times


The "TTask.Create - CreateDrive - Invalid source device type!" error.

Both trying to open Task.prm and Task.bak files gave this error, yet I could open other tasks just fine (I know others had this issue after a drive letter changed, etc.).

What I did to fix it was as follows:
  • Create a new task using same parameters
  • Generate head map then close the task
  • Copy over all imgXXXXX.bin files and the map.bin file
  • Reopen the new task, right click on the map, and select "Recalc"

Problem solved!
