    When I was tracking on my DP24SD, this file message came up and locked up my machine.

    "File Error" and "Writing Failed

    My SD card is fine. All songs on there are fine.

    Anyone had the same problem? If so, any fixes?

    Hi Ted, and Welcome to the Tascam Forums.

    Of course. All users who do not use approved SD cards will always eventually have issues (including me). This is been discussed thoroughly and is well documented.

    Is your firmware the latest version? Is your SD card on the approved list? If not, you need to correct those 2 issues first. Several operational improvements specific to file handling and operational stability have been introduced recent firmware updates.
