I have been playing with my CF cards. Some are just not recognized and some kill the title screen. Hopefully someone here is wiser than I am and knows why:
I have a couple of Lexar cards that, if my memory is correct, shouldn't work. They are labeled "USB Enabled" and no others have that label.
I have one Transcend. Is that another brand on the non-workable list?
I have three Axiom 1GB cards that don't work but look new.
I have 2 Apacer 4GB cards that don't work (but I have a couple of 2GB Apacer cards that work fine)
I have 3 SanDisk 2GB cards labeled 2004 that don't work (but others labeled 2003 but otherwise identical do work)
All of my CF cards work fine with TIDIR, although 4GB cards show as 2GB, no problem (but other 4GB cards show as 4GB).
All of the above cards have been reformatted using Windows 10, FAT non-quick format. But still won't work. Could formatting with a different OS make a difference? Linux? Apple?
BTW: when I quick format the above units, then fire up TIDIR and tell it yes I do want to use a PC-formatted device, it shows all of the previous files except for volume #1. I assume that was overwritten.
