What does the 'check card' option do?  Right under the format option.  I pressed it assuming it would show the data on the card but it just said 'processing' for a while and went back to the main screen.

I have a few sets I haven't transferred to my computer yet, hoping it doesn't affect those...

Page 72 of the manual.
It just checks it and erases any non-R44 files to free up space.
It should leave the R44 files alone.
this is definitely not normal

One more R44 caveat that I learned last night.
Been running these decks for a long time now and this one just got solved.

I had a hard time synching the digital signal from the V3 and tried everything: switching the sample size, plugging and unplugging, switching decks, restarting....

Finally I noticed that the phantom power was on for Channels 1 & 2 and turning that off, shutting down both the V3 & R44 and starting over fixed it right up. So there is, I believe, the main reason that sometimes the R44 doesn't take the digital signal from time to time!
this is definitely not normal

Thanks for the updates, jb63. This is all good to hear!

^^  That's a good trick to know about the digital signal.  Cheers, jb63!
