Hi

USB Recording works as long as the Disk has an own power supply, at least 32GB of free Space and can write with min 30MB's.

HI!
You write to me:

"USB Recording works as long as the Disk has an own power supply, at least 32GB of free Space and can write with min
30GB's".

#1-I have read in the Forum that many have a problem with external HDD smaller than 250GB. Can i use a SSD with
32GB size?
#2-It is a mistake that with 30GB's write to can? SSD can with 6GB's speed read and write. Could be 3 GB's write speed?

Hi,

1) you need at least 32 GB free space - on a 32 GB drive you will never have the full 32 GB!

2) yeah - typing error - 30MB/sec

Hi

Indeed its 30MB's.
No a 32GB STick will not do it, you need real free 32GB Spacwe. Connect a Stick (no matter the size) to a PC and check the free Space after formating it, you will see that not all Space is available.
However, i would aslo not suggest to connect only a 120GB Drive as this Space will be full soon. We suggest to use Drive with lots of free Space (1TB +)
