Re: 128 or 256 MB CFCs for Repeater

The problem is that I've seen other reports that said the SanDisk card 
work. There are tons of reports that the SimpleTech 256MB like I bought 
great, but the one I got didn't. I have two SimpleTech 128MB cards. One 
perfectly, and the other one won't consistantly record in stereo. 

The other variable is that some Repeater users don't record in stereo or 
much, so they don't know that their card isn't fully functional, so they 
that it works...but then later on you find that they never tried more then 
basic one track forward recording.

Like I said, it's a crap shoot. 

They switch the controller chips that they use in those things all the 
Apparently the ones that end up with one particular Hitichi controller 
will work
with the Repeater, others don't, or only work in some crippled mode (won't 
in stereo, won't record in reverse, etc).
