AJA Ki Pro Mini – the latest

A few days ago I tested my new Ki Pro Mini and discovered that under certain conditions the device would not record files to my Lexar CF card even though the screen showed that there was recording taking place. AJA contacted me and after a few tries was able to duplicate the issue. They must be working on the problem because it’s been 2 days now and there has been no communication from AJA. So……we wait.

Update: March 2nd 3:31 pm

From AJA:

An issue has come to our attention regarding the use of Lexar 32GB Professional 600x Compact Flash cards as originally qualified for use with the Ki Pro Mini. If the Lexar Compact Flash cards are inserted in the Ki Pro Mini prior to powering up the unit, the Lexar Compact Flash cards will falsely report recording; in actuality data will not be written to the Compact Flash card as expected. While this issue does not occur if the Lexar Compact Flash card is inserted after the Ki Pro Mini is powered up, we can no longer recommend the use of these cards at this time. We are actively working to determine the cause of this issue, but for now, the Lexar 32GB Professional 600x Compact Flash card has been removed from our list of qualified Compact Flash cards for use with Ki Pro Mini.

Please note that the issue described above for the Lexar Compact Flash card does not affect the other cards qualified for use with the Ki Pro Mini. Additionally, we will be adding new choices to the qualified list of Compact Flash cards for use with Ki Pro Mini in the near future.

We apologize for any inconvenience the recommendation of the Lexar 32GB Professional 600x Compact Flash card may have caused.
