Care and Maintenance of Compact Flash Cards

Hello Convergent Design People,

Can you let us know if there is a routine we should be using other than a simple card reformat in the nanoFlash to keep our cards in optimal shape for high bitrate recording.

I am thinking of occurrences where one may have deleted files from the card from a device other than the nanoFlash or not performed a reformat of the cards upon reinsertion in the nanoFlash.

It has been stated numerous times that one should always reformat your Compact Flash cards on the NanoFlash once they have been used on a computer system but if people haven't been doing this religiously is there a more thorough reformatting that can be done with another application to keep running as the should?

Dear Andrew,

That is a very interesting question.

All one needs to do is to reformat the card in the nanoFlash.

So no matter what happened before, our Format in the nanoFlash will set up the card for proper operation in the nanoFlash.
