Kingston 45X 4 gig is all I have ever used
and have had no problems

but I am only doing 24/48

has anyone used these doing 24/96??  folks said they work with the 671 so i bought one as I was getting a 671.  now I got the p2 and can't find info on these and 24/96.

It should gordon. You can do a speed test. I'd do some tests first but it should work. I've always used my Kingstons at 24/48.

Hope that helps.

a friend of mine (who isn't really on ts.com much) uses a Kingston 45X (8 gig card) at 24/96 in his HD-P2 with no problems.

did a speed test in the hd-p2 and it says it's good up to 24/192.  just did a cass transfer (coax in from the V3 at 24/96) and it was just fine.

I have a 12gb Sandisk Extreme III .

The deck reads the card as 12.0gb but it crashes at 8.0gb.

You have to pull the batteries to turn it off. The same as Jasons 16gb card.

Definately an 8gb issue. I hope they fix it.

Maybe we should start some sort of petetion or maybe we should all send Tascam e-mails so that this gets fixed sooner then later. I don't know if that will help but I guess it couldnt hurt, right?

I did send them an email earlier today. Let's see what they tell me.

Has anybody else talked to Tascam already?

Here is the email I sent them:

Good afternoon,
    I have a question about my Tascam HD-P2. I have a 12gb Sandisk Extreme III CF card and my deck crashes at 7.99gb. Is there an issue with CF cards above 8.0gb's? Is this going to be fixed with a firmware update?

                         

                                                                       Thanks for your help,
                                                                                                     Bennett Schwartz

Here is Tascams answer, and it is pretty lame:

Bennett,
 
The maximum capacity cards recommended are 8GB.
 
Thank you for your interest in TASCAM products.

that is there standard cop-out reply.
they are only telling you that because they haven't tested it on capacities larger than 8GB.
we need to push them on this.  there is absolutely no reason why the HD-P2 shouldn't be able to handle larger cards, as all cards above 2 GB gets formatted as FAT32 and not FAT16.

"The maximum capacity cards recommended are 8GB."

they can't yet recommend cards over 8GB because they have a bug in their firmware.  they should be able to fix this.

until they actually have a logical explanation about why the HD-P2 can't handle it, I don't think any of us should stop contacting them with the problem.

I sort of got a little bitter with their answer, so I responded to TASCAM. I hope I didn't sound to angry:

Quote
Tascam Customer Service,

        So that is it? You are not going to work on this problem? The HD-P2
obviously reads the card correctly. It tells you that you have a 12gb card in
the unit, from the system menu. It also counts down with the correct time that
you should get out of the card, but crashes with 1:44 left on the counter at
24/96. I am confused why this should be that big of a problem to fix. This
answer , "The maximum capacity cards recommended are 8GB", seems like a real bad
stance to take for Tascam. 8gb cards are small cards these days, and 32gb cards
will be out this year. 

    So, is the answer to my question, "We recognize the problem, and we are not
going to persue a fix to the problem?". I was just wondering, because I can not
reccomend this unit to any of my peers, if you are not going to look into the
issue. I love this recorder and I hope you work on this problem.


                                                              Thanks for your time,

Ok - Now we got a reply!  ;)

Bennett,
 
Maybe we should have been a bit clearer.
The unit was designed (not a problem) to support a maximum 8GB CF card.

If it didn't read my card with the correct size, I would believe them, but it says it has a 12gb card in the unit in the system menu. Oh well, maybe by the time I buy a 744t they will have it fixed, but I'm not holding my breath.

I recommend everyone to send emails. Even if you don't have a big card, you will eventually.

Their email address is "CustSer" <CustSer@teac.com>

that's what the tech support people told me as well on the phone.  I told them that I was sure that this is a bug and not a design consideration.  it's not like the card size is a limitation, it's just a FAT32 storage volume.  the deck shouldn't care if it's 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, 64GB, whatever.

They have never responded to any of my emails, so I've been calling.  Call and ask to speak with Neil Faison.  He's the manager.  No one else will be able to help at all.  Ask Neil to speak with the engineers, or put you in direct touch with the engineers.
