but again, any card can die any moment...  and my DR-70D have a backup recorder on it, so, im safe  :coolguy:

It is a back up safety track (still being written to the same card), not a back up dual card recording like say the Zoom F4/F8/F8n and other higher end recorders do

He actually has a separate recorder mounted to it somehow if I remember correctly seeing the photos of it when he posted pics of his battery modification.

I didn't find anything poking around. Has anybody tried the medium Amazon DSLR bag with a 70? I bought the large and it's plenty of room. I just can't take the giant form factor. The smaller one is only losing an inch in depth so I may poke with one before I hack the top and pockets off the large and see if anybody can use it as it.
Pockets full of nickels and nothing left to eat, and I'm stuck behind a semi on Soniat Street.

Bumping this thread with a revised link to find the ever-so-important APPROVED MEDIA LIST that is no longer linked from Tascam's main page for this discontinued recording device.

Approved media list is certainly necessary for this recorder.  I feel bad for SD MixPre owners who are still waiting for such a list.

Discontinued?  New ones are still for sale at all the usual places for $300.

Shameless Plug: I have my modded DR-70D up for sale in the YS right now for considerably less, and it includes a 100% reliable SD card, among other things.

I wouldn't shed too many tears for the MixPre users. There has been a lot of sound and fury with respect to cards, but almost entirely concerning stress tests with eight channels recorded at 24-bit 192 kHz. At this point, though, many people have recorded a ton of shows with fewer channels (very few use the L/R mix, for example) and more reasonable sampling rates using basically every type of card with no problems. That's not to say that SD shouldn't make a list of cards that can pass the stress test, but it hasn't been much of a real world problem for tapers...

Here's a more recent Approved Media List, I can only ever seem to find the 16gb cards on it.

Gotcha.  I don't own one of those, so I have no horse in this race.

I have both. I should probably do a BBB claim on SD just to be even-handed, but mine is working at the moment, now that I sent the ONE CARD THAT WAS THE RIGHT KIND BUT IT FAILED back to the vendor and opened the other one I bought at the same time.
Note to self: possible BBB claim later...
