I really hoped that there would be an upgrade on this unit to support the new SDXC Cards...oh well off to buy the last Samsung 32GB SDHC PRO Class 10 cards...


I'm  sorry to hear this but not surprised.  I'm sure that the new Sound Devices Mixpre series had something to do with this.

Any thoughts on comparison of the preamps of these two units...since you have both.  >:D

^Honestly, I haven't even run my MixPre-6 for the first time yet. 

I was really hoping for some 4MinX firmware upgrade features and an updated user manual.  My 4MinX will definitely be staying here though.   ;)

What other brands of USB cards are folks using with the 4MinX other than Samsung pro ? Supply of Samsung Pro 32 gig cards have dried up....can I use 64 gig SDSX with the understanding that it formats to 32 gig?

Early on I tried some SanDisk pro cards but they were not recognized in this unit.

To date I have only used 32GB & 16 GB Samsung Pro cards with the 4MinX.  I might try one of these Lexar cards with the 4MinX:  https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1090738-REG/lexar_lsd32gcrbna1000_pro_1000x_uhs_2.html  I can use the Lexar card in another recorder here if it doesn't work with the 4MinX.

I have no idea what the results would be for this:  "can I use 64 gig SDSX with the understanding that it formats to 32 gig?"

Do you think that a micro sdhc card in a sdhc adapter would work?

I can't believe the 4Minx only takes a 32gig card and only certain cards!!  Aeta really should make that right with a firmware update.

^Info from AETA:  Actually the maximum storage card size available is 4gb (SD) and 128gb (SDHC). We highly recommend high speed cards.  Supports class 10 or similar.

Do you have a 128 gig card that works?

I've never tried using a 128gb card in the 4Minx.  I've personally only used Samsung Pro 16gb & 32gb cards in the machine.  As I mentioned before I was really hoping for firmware upgrades from AETA and a better English translation for the user manual.

When I paid the AETA people a visit a few years ago, their head engineer HATED the preamps on the SD 7xx recorders.  I have to think that this is designed to directly compete with the SD recorders, only with much better preamps.  The Mixy sounded terrific; hopefully this will take it a step further.

What was so bad about the pre amps in the Sound Devices 7 series recorders??

Got the reply...did not address the SDSX 64gig question...did say that any brand as long as it was high speed card and a full format is performed there should be no incompatibility/card not recognized issues...and that he is using SanDisk SDHC Class 10 80meg Read/Write in his unit.

I've got a new SanDisk Ultra SDHC UHS-1 Class 10 32gig 80 mg/s 533x speed card in the retail packaging to try...we will see.

^Thanks for the update!

I dug through my stack of storage cards and found this 64gb Samsung Pro SDXCcard that I had formatted but that I had never used.  I purchased it in 2017.    It formatted as a 32gb card.  That is why I never used it in the 4MinX.

Be very very careful about buying fakes, that is probably what happened.
