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.

Steve.

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)

http://www.fostexusa.com/support/pdf/fostex/mr8/mr8_confirmed_media_list.pdf

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?

Compact flash that i bought wont work san disk 4 g ultra says error 9


USUALLY the ultra and high density flash cards have trouble working in most music equipment.

Only buy the cards up to 2 Gb and verify compatibility with one of them before buying more.

I have a Fostex MR-8 MKII 8-track recorder, and as soon as I turn it on it says 'card error' and 'illegal format'.My compact flashcard is 2GB Sandisk, how can I solve this problem?


First you can format the flashcard FAT-32 on your computer. If that does not help your card maybe broken or the brand is not supported. Than try to use another brand. Kingston and Transcend always make te best choice.

Compactflash reads error


You need to verify that your card is confirmed to work in the MR8 at this site:

http://www.fostexinternational.com/docs/support/MR8_Operation_CF_20071213.pdf

It is OBVIOUS that your card is not acceptable because it is larger than 2GB.

Importing track to Fostex MR-8MK 2


I just got an MR-8 and had the same problem. Google and download Wav Manager...convert your files to mono (.wav) or else it won't export. I searched everywhere for several days and stumbled upon the solution woohoo!!!

Recording


You take the .wav from each track from mr-8 and insert to desired track in your software. Use a CF Card reader to make this easier.
