    Hi there. I'm having trouble with my Fostex MR-8 CF card. It's an intermittent problem that keeps popping up saying card error 09. I've reformatted (also from an external source as well as the MR-8). Sometimes I can get away with recording a song and immediately transfering onto the computer, but the next time it will get halfway through and then corrupt again. I'm using the same CF I got with the unit (about 2 years) do these cards get weary and need replaced? or is there something else I could try. Thanks for looking.

    Yes, these cards do go bad. You need to find their list of approved cards and get a new one. Get a bunch. They don't cost enough to dick with them. Keep them away from magnets and phones with very active data connections.

    Ok, thanks for your quick response. I'll search online and see what I can find.
