Microtracker CF Card Problem?
« on: February 20, 2006, 11:01:59 AM »
Well heres one I havent seen on here yet. Taped a show last night, 3 sets, Microtracker worked fine for the whole show. When the show over i was starting to put the MT away when someone bumped into me pretty hard causing my MT to come out of my hand. It didnt hit the floor because it was still attached to the PS2 via TRS cables, however it did swing into this wooden barricade that was set up, it barely hit it so I didnt think anything was wrong. When I looked at the display none of the 3 files displayed any time anymore and I couldnt play them or do anything else. I shut down the MT and re booted. After going through the power up sequence it displays "reading media" and goes no further. When I hook it up to the puter it will connect but the attached image is what I see. The folders are all empty, the individual files have various file sizes in the MB's including the files that are about the right size as the set files should be. I tried copying them to the puter but it wont because it says it cant be read. I also tried changing the file name and extension of one of the files that is probably the show data but it wouldnt do that either for the same reason. Anyone ever see anything like this. I have used the card on several occasions prior to this with no problems and it was working fine  until the bump. I really cant imagine a bump like that causing a CF card to wig out. HELP!

Just a word of advice for a fellow MT user.

When you're done recording, power off the unit and eject the CF card immediately. If it's out of the MT, the crappy firmware can't possibly screw it up!

As soon as I get a card reader I'm going to make this my main mode of operation. Record, stop, eject ----> peace of mind.

Are you trying to extract the files through the MT or through an external card reader?
