Test your card on another type of recorder before you chuck it!  I have reported on my experience with the MT 2496, which I think is flaky in how it handles CF brands.  When I first got the machine, it worked fine with my Sandisk Ultraa II 8GB card.  I didn't use the MT much, but upgraded the firmware regularly.  At one point I used it, and found that I was getting a periodic clicking maybe four times a second when I ran it at 24/96 or 24/48, but not at 16 bits (even 16/96, so not likely a speed issue).  M-Audio blamed the card, but when I tried it in a Fostex or Marantz at 24/96 it worked fine.  However, a new Sankdisk 8GB card and a Delkin 8GB card did work correctly in the MT.  Go figure.  With the last firmware upgrade, I again tested the original card and it seems to work fine again.  I stress that the problem was not intermittant, the clicking occurred every time at 24 bits, and then went away just as completely with the new firmware.
