  Important information about DVFAR-II Compact Flash Media

SanDisk compact flash cards are high quality, reliable cards that have been approved for our digital video recorders. Capacities are continually increasing allowing longer record times with the DVFAR range of recorders. Please check with Aero Optical before upgrading card sizes that may not match the firmware in your equipment.

It should be noted that flash memory does not have an infinite life. Every time a card is formatted or erased, the card can lose performance. Cards should be replaced if video quality of recordings is affected.

SanDisk Extreme 60 – 120MB/s CF cards have been approved up to 16GB capacity for all DVFAR-II supplied after 2010.

The HD-DVFAR recorders use the SanDisk Extreme Pro 90MB and the SanDisk Extreme range of cards.

Because SanDisk are continuously enhancing their products speed and capacities, the firmware in your machine may not be compatible.
