* Note 1: Sound Devices and Delkin have worked closely together with regards to testing CF model 700x cards. Delkin has confirmed that cards containing VQ in the serial number are not compatible, but cards ending with VU in the serial number are compatible, and are therefore approved.
* Note 2: Sound Devices has worked directly with Delkin to identify an intermittent Media I/O issue with newer Delkin CF 500x and CF 700x cards. Delkin has confirmed that a recent change to these two cards is most likely responsible for the errors. Cards containing KZ in the serial number are susceptible to this issue and should not be used. Cards containing VB in the serial number will function correctly and are approved. Deklin CF 1000x and 1050x cards do not experience this issue and may continue to be used.
