SD cards corruption, how big a problem is this?
I have followed the topic of the corrupted SD cards for some time. I don't remember hearing about this back in the earlier days running ver 2 on a Flex 6500. Was this problem introduced in later versions of 2? According to Flex, the problem was supposed to have been fixed in ver 3. But some people are having the SD cards corruption problem on radios running ver 3. The general response was to indicate the SD card must have been partly corrupted before upgrading to ver3. However then, what about people having the problem with newer radios that came with ver 3 installed?
Before diving any deeper into this, it could be beneficial to know how prevalent this problem is?
I'm not exactly sure where to start this. Here are some things we can look at. Maybe Flex will join in and provide some input?
One of my first questions for Flex, is how many people or what percentage of owners are having the SD cards corruption problem?
Is the problem more common on one model over another? ie 6400 vs 6400M
Do users who experiences the problem with SD cards corruption have anything in common? k ie. Anything about your station setups, do you use an amplifier, any problems with RF in the shack??
Maybe others can come up with more things that are more pertinent to consideration.
My current Flex 6400 (approx. 9 months old) was purchased new with ver 3 installed. I have never had the corruption problem. My fingers are crossed! hi..
I have the Flex 6400 without the ATU. I do not have an amplifier and use wire antennae. I use my radio a few hours a day on SSB and only turn it on when I’m using it. I only use the basic radio functions, haven’t got around to try other function and modes that would connect it to other programs etc.
The bottom line, if we do not have the problem should we be concerned. How likely are to have this SD cards corruption with our radios?
