This unit can record to SD cards and USB flash drives in the fol-
44.1/48kHz sampling frequency, 64/128/192/256/320kbps
44.1/48/96kHz sampling frequency, 16/24-bit
The following explanations assume that a recordable SD card or
USB flash drive has been loaded, necessary connections have
been completed and the unit is on.
i The maximum numbers of tracks that can be recorded and
folders that can be created are as follows. (Same for both SD
cards and USB flash drives)
Number of tracks: 999 maximum per folder
Number of folders: 3000 maximum on each medium
i Media that are 2GB or less might not allow the recording of
999 tracks inside the root folder due to file system limitations.
A maximum of 999 tracks can be recorded in subfolders. (This
may differ according to use conditions.)
i When a protected SD card is loaded in the unit, recording is
not possible.(see “SD card write-protection switches” on page
Unexpected power interruptions
The unit has a protection function to prevent the deletion of
all recording tracks if an unexpected power interruption occurs
while recording to an SD card or USB flash drive. Data up to 25
seconds before the interruption will be protected.
i The unit has a protection function, but all the files on the SD
card or USB flash drive could be damaged or deleted due to
other factors, including the characteristics of the medium,
power interruption while writing to a system area or removal
of the medium from the unit. For these reasons, as much as
possible avoid power interruptions during recording and
i This function was not designed for use with an external timer
to turn off the power during recording, for example.
