My brother recently upgraded his recording gear, and gave me
his Edirol R-1. Currently, I'm using it with the stock 64 mb Roland
branded compact flash, and with a 1 Gb Transcend card.
The Transcend card works well, however when the power supply
is used there's some noise tarnishing the recordings. I'd like to
use the R-1 with a 4 Gb cards. There's a Roland web site with
a list of compatible cards, but it seems outdated. I could also
find some posts on Taperssection, but the list dates back from
2005, so I'm not sure if these are still valid.
Finally, after reading some comments on a blog, I went and purchased
a 4 Gb Sandisk Ultra II Compact Flash. Unfortunately, the R-1
does not like it. Upon insertion, it says 'No songs', but when I try
to record, it just instantly stops the recording and did not even
create a file. I tried reformatting to FAT (and not FAT32), partitioning
it to a single 2 Gb partition, but to no avail. Note that I upgraded
the firmware to the 1.03 version available on Roland's web site.
So what compact flash still available on the market do you guys use
with the R-1 ? Thanks in advance for your help.
