I took my deck out for use the first time this past weekend. Important lesson I learned: If the power source runs out, the unit will not detect it and write the files before shutting down. Instead, it will shut down and your filles will float off into digital never land. :banging head:

The file size limit for WAV is 4 GB, although many recorders split at 2 GB. As I recall, this is a holdover from older FAT systems. Some recorders, such as the Marantz PMD-620/661 and SD MixPre-3/6 (and the 7-series, I think) and others, allow 4 GB splits...
One way to get longer files without exceeding the 4GB limit is to record in "dual mono" instead of stereo for each track pair. Then each mono file can go over four hours at 24 bit, before it hits the limit and requires a new file...
