F. MEMORY CARD INTERFACE
1 Flash ATA cards are formatted in the quick format mode (the
file allocation table and directory information in the root
directory are cleared). For an unformatted flash ATA card,
format it with a personal computer.
2 Files on a memory card that can be displayed and selected
are the first 64 files registered in the root directory area.
3 Only the root directory area can be used to display, read,
and write files on a memory card. The subdirectory area
cannot be used. File names on the memory card must each
consist of up to eight uppercase alphanumeric characters,
and extensions must each consist of up to three uppercase
4 The time required to read or write data varies depending on
the type and use status of the memory card.
5 When a memory card is used, files on the memory card may
be erased by mistake. So, necessary data should be
backed up on the personal computer.
6 Unless support of functions and I/O operations by this
interface is explicitly described in this manual, these
functions and I/O operations should be considered to be
unsupported by this interface.
