    Can anyone tell me why my sd card runs out of memory when I'm only recording over an existing track.
    The memory ran out so I deleted two songs with about four tracks on each. This gave me 64mins of memory.
    I've recorded another short song, using four tracks.
    This morning I wanted to re-record over a track on another song. After about 15mins of recording over the same track the merory ran out. Surely I'm not adding more info to the card if i just keep recording over the same track.
    Any help would be much appreciated

    I don't know the DP03, but in general I would say there is no 'recording over' in the digital world - assuming there is an Undo function. With tape, yes, the previous data is gone, but with digital it remains to make undo possible. Try erasing the previous tracks first and you should see a difference in remaining time..

    The Portastudio machines have a menu option to Delete Unused. That removes all those leftover files from the SD card.
