Multitracker (24-Bit) Conversion & Drive Formatting?

    People,

    Looking at two 24-Bit Multitrackers (for expanding my studio operation to include location recording)...the Tascam 2488 & the Korg D1600.

    Of these two units, does anyone know the mfg./model# of the onboard ADCs...or, more importantly...how the conversion/recording quality compares between the two?

    Second question is...the hard drives in both of these units, specifically the USB partitions used for file transfer (which is very important to my operation), are formatted to FAT-16.

    My PC native DAW is SONAR; & my audio drive on that PC is formatted to NTFS.

    Will I be able to: 1) export FAT-16 formatted .wav files to that NTFS formatted audio drive; & 2) then have them be accessed by the DAW from that drive to be played/edited?

    Really need to know if this is possible prior to purchase.

    Also...can the hard drive in the 2488 (or the Korg) be reformatted to NTFS (so I don't have to worry about drive format compatibility)?

    Thanks very much,

    mark4man
