I have 2 broken power supplies for a 6hd. I'd like to either get a working one or fix this one. Any ideas? Love the ax.

Hello,
do you know the max. store capacity of the Compact Flash Card that I can use?

I find the answer:
KPR answered at the Fusion Facebook Group: he says 2 GB is documented.

The Fusion can handle and format up to 4Gb CF Cards . . . .

Additionally we have recently discovered that a 16Gb Card can be used if PARTITIONED correctly . . . .

http://promusicproducts.com/forum/phpBB ... 975#p36918

This becomes more important as the smaller CF Cards become scarce . . . ;)

Ok. Thank you very much.

The are also adapters from CF to SD.

You're welcome!

As far as I know, SD cards have NOT been made to work successfully with the Fusion (yet?).

It just so happened that CF Cards were all the rage when the Fusion was in development . . .

Famously popular in the flagship DSLRs of the day, so no reason NOT to go with them at that time. . . . .

Then, the SD card became mainstream :roll:

Just the way it pans out . . . :roll:
