Problem with CF media (MT related)
« on: January 12, 2006, 12:00:31 AM »
Hey all-

Having a weird problem I was hoping someone might have an idea about.

Just got a 4GB Sandisk ultra II CF card off of ebay. So I put it in the MT and format it, and I am only getting 0.98 GB of storage space. I have reformatted it multiple times using the MT, and get 0.98 GB of storage every time. I did some test recordings, almost filled up the 0.98 GB and reformatted. Still 0.98 GB available.

When I plug it into my laptop and it appears as a drive in "my computer", if I right click on the drive and select "format", the "capacity" drop-down menu still only gives me an option as 0.98 GB.

What the heck is going on here? I guess it is possible that I got sold a 1GB card masquerading as a 4GB, but the Sandisk sticker definitely says 4GB, and the plastic case the card came in also has a white barcode sticker that says 4GB. I got the card from a power seller with tons of items sold and 99.5% positive feedback so I don't think they were trying any funny business.

Any ideas? I am stumped about this thing.  ???

Thanks,
Ben

I'm having the same problem with a 4GB Ridata that's showing up as 1.94GB in XP (even after formatting as FAT32), except the MT doesn't even recognize it at all.

Just report to M-Audio what happened.
I had multiple 4GB TRaxdata CF cards appear as some unusable 7xx GB or so.
The format procedure hung and the CF card could not be restored to 4GB by formatting in Windows or in an iPAQ...

There is a switch on the edge of the Sandisk Ultra 4 gig card that switches it to 4 gigs. Why they don't set it that way as the default is a mystery to me. It is for compatibility with devices that can't see a 4 gig card.
