Alternative compact flash cards for fostex mr-8

I recently purchased an older fostex mr-8 second hand and all I have is a 126mb compact flash card. I'm looking for a larger 512mb which is suggested with this model, but I would like to know if any of the newer larger cards 1gig or even larger would be compatible?

thanks for your help with this headache.

Fostex has a list of tested and confirmed Compact Flash Cards for the MR-8:
(It is under Support on the Fostex USA main page)

Looks like they have tested up to 2GB with no problems...

Hope this helps

    Found more info.. check out the forums on Fostex. It DOES sound like you have to max out at 2GB, due to the FAT restrictions.

    I just got a 2GB card for my mr-8, and while I can record tracks to the card just fine, it is not popping up on my computer when in usb mode. My 128mb card pops up just fine, but not the 2gb. What can I do? Is the card not compatible after all?

How can i fix my memory card corrupted? tnx

The CDR (8cm) is not a memory card it is a compact Disk Recordable. It can be recorded to and appended to but not erased like a CDR/w. If it is corrupted it is most like due to the age of the disk and the breakdown of the recordable compound which makes up the disk, information generally cannot be recovered if this has happened.

If the disks has scratches on the other hand you can get a disk repair system like Disk Doctor and repair scratched disks.

If you are in fact referring to a memory module which "Kingston" does in fact manufacture, memory modules cannot be repaired by the normal Joe and requires replacement if it has become damaged/corrupted.

Hopes this helps

Line in what is that for

In general:

Line In is the standard name for any generic audio input. Line Out would be for the corresponding output.

It allows a standard for audio equipment manufacturers to use when designing for interconnection.

"Consumer electronic devices concerned with audio (for example Sound cards) often have a connector labeled "line in" and/or "line out". Line out provides an audio signal output and line in receives a signal input. The line in/out connections on a computer sound card are generally unbalanced, with a TRS connector of 6.35 mm (1/4"), 3.5 mm (1/8" miniature) or 2.5 mm (3/32" subminiature). The connections on most other consumer equipment use RCA jacks. In most cases changing the volume setting on the source equipment does not vary the strength of the line out signal."

I am having problems playing back downloaded files.

Are the files actually .mp3 format? There are a few different compressed formats available now and some mp3 players etc are not compatible with these formats.
Older players (and some current ones) for instance will not play .wma files which are Windows Media Audio files.
