Hitachi 6 GB MD
« on: January 11, 2006, 08:13:42 PM »
Does anyone have any information on how this card preforms with the MT?  Is $199 a fair price to pay for a new one?

Regards,
Jesse

 I know some people are using them and have had good luck.... back when the MT came out people were finding that card on ebay through vendors for around  $100 - 120

Crowd chatter isn't terrible. But yeah we did have roving packs of hoes camping under the stand.

I've recorded several shows on my MT with the Hitachi 6gb microdrive without any problems. Recorded at both 24/48 and 24/96. The drive that I purchased off ebay is the Hitachi/Apple branded variety.

The only problem I've had with the one I bought is that it can't keep up with analog to WAV recordings. Analog to MP3 is fine, S/PDIF is fine. For that reason I'm selling it...$110 shipped + 3% Paypal. PM me if interested.

FWIW, I had no problems with my 6gb Hitachi/Apple branded microdrive keeping up with analog to wav recordings. I only ever used the MT analog>wav at both 24/48 and 24/96.

Just out of curiosity, how is the microdrive formatted?

Not surprising, really.  The real-time data flow to the drive ought to be the same regardless of the input source.  If there is a problem, it would more likely lie with the MT itself, or?
