I finally got this fixed. I tried installing the DA40NG_Nxi.gcl file that now downloads from the Diamond checklist site but it would not install. Diamond sent me another file titled checklist.gcl (I think it is the same file but retitled). This installed through the bottom slot on the MFD and replaced the DA42 checklist.
Great!

I just downloaded the file. I'll rename it and try it tomorrow.

Success!

I renamed per Stephen and it loaded and verified immediately. I haven't actually looked at them, but now my database "problems" are down to one. I'll take that up with Garmin!

Thanks!

So will these work in a 42 VI with NXi phase 1, if we load them onto the bottom MFD card?
Thanks

These will not work with my DA62 NXi Phase I (Checklist soft keys are all gray'ed out) , so I doubt they'll work with DA42-VI NXi Phase I either. They may require upgrade to NXi Phase II.

Just to update, I did put the checklists on the SD card for the bottom PFD slot, booted up and hey presto. Nothing. Start up screen still says Checklist file N/A, and on entry, the checklist button is still greyed out. Might it need a software tweak for it to recognise it and upload it?
Seems frustrating that we all know it can be done, just not in a Diamond...

If you have NXi Phase I for DA40NG/DA42-VI/DA62, then electronic checklists aren't supported by the software. NXi Phase II hardware/software seems to be required.
