    What is the version # of DMT8 software? I am using ver. 2.0

    Does anyone know which HD's are authorized for use with the DMT8?

    Thanks,

    AS FAR AS I KNOW VERSION 2 SOFTWARE IS THE LAST
    VERSION FOSTEX DID FOR THE DMT-8

    DID YOU EVER FIND OUT WHAT HARDISKS ARE SUITABLE
    AS REPLACEMENTS FOR THE ORIGINAL. I WOULD LIKE
    TO CHANGE THE ORIGINAL DISK FOR ONE WITH LONGER
    RECORDING TIME. ONLY SOME WILL WORK. PLEASE LET ME
    KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY DETAILS.

    CHANGING THE HARDISK ON THE DMT-8 IS DIFFICULT BUT
    CAN BE DONE ACCORDING TO A WEB ARTICLE I READ.

    IN THE UK FOSTEX WILL DO THIS FOR YOU. MINIMUM COST
    IS APPROX $250 BUT CAN BE HIGHER DEPENDING ON HOW
    MUCH HARD DISK SPACE YOU NEED. I PHONED THEM IN 2002
    AND THEY SAID THEY WERE EXPERIENCING DIFFICULTY IN
    OBTAINING SUITABLE DISKS.

    ANY INFO WOULD BE APPRECIATED.

    Thanks JR#97 for the list if disks. Much appreciated.

    The lists mention suitability for DMT8-VL but are they also
    suitable for DMT8 ?.

    I read somewhere that a DMT8 with original software will only
    recognise 512mb disks, but that if the machine is upgraded to
    version 2 software it can recognise disks up th 2GB and increase
    the recording time to match. However anything larger than 2 GB
    will be disregarded.

    For example a machine fitted with a 3GB disk will recognise the first 2GB and disregard the last 1GB so there would be no
    advantage in fitting anything larger than a 2GB disk as it will
    not result in still greater recording time.
