Microtrack II Working CF cards
« on: July 25, 2008, 10:11:26 AM »

List from posts:

-Sandisk Ultra II 2Gb, 4Gb, 8 Gb
-Transcend 133x 16Gb
-AData 16 GB
As M-Audio have no list of working CF cards, this could be a good resource for microtrack users thinking about buying a new card if we post here the card we are using with success.

8 Gb Sandisk Ultra II - Working perfectly
16 Gb Transcend 133 x - Working perfectly

So far have used a Sandisk 4 GB and AData 16 GB card.  Am leaving the 16 gig AData in and have been running it solo.  Will fit most anything that I'll be taping at 24/48.  Beats having to take the media in and out, risking damage.  My $.02

I've recently used SanDisk "Ultra II" cards in 2 GB, 4 GB and 8 GB capacity. All have passed the MT II's built-in media testing with "96/24" results.

I had one lockup with the 4 GB card in some 50 hours of recording this past week, but the S/P-DIF stream from the (AC-powered) preamp/converter was being repeatedly interrupted by power brownouts at the time--so I don't particularly believe that this lockup was attributable to the card itself. Besides, I was using the 1.0.3 firmware and the notes for the latest version (1.0.4) claim to have fixed the lockup problem, or at least a lockup problem.

However, the experience convinced me to use the smallest-capacity card that is large enough for the recording I can reasonably expect to do at one time. In case there is another lockup, recovering the data from a smaller-capacity card would surely be a much more easily manageable task.
