All the discussion has given me a sudden interest in recording, it’s a

create a FL with just that channel and turn any others off? The notion
would be to only record only activity which sounds like it would be

I’m sorry, I had a senior citizen moment. It’s FAT32 that the DAR-101

a way to do it from the command line. There’s a article on it online.
The DAR-101 is older than Windows 10. Sorry for the confusion!

That seems rather odd, largely because it makes it incompatible
with out-of-the box Windows 10, both for reading and writing - and
that makes it odd as a decision at the design phase. It is even
more odd when you consider that most Linux distributions support
read/write/format of FAT12/16/32 in the standard releases.

The manual explicitly states, for the DAR-101 -- "A standard '2GB'
SD card Must be formatted into FAT 16 and all the SDHC card MUST
be for-matted into FAT 32."

There are some recording devices out there that require ext4 - eg,
the Epiphan Pearl Mini, for example (which is video capable and
likely massively 'too much' for just audio recording), so there
are some devices out there. Possible confusion with a different

I am curious in your experience on this, as I have been looking
for a portable device that can handle portable recording using
external mics, and the DAR-101 mostly fills the bill very nicely.
But having an ext4 format requirement is likely a negative point
for a device that hits many positive points.
