Hello friends!,
I am new to the MPC game. I started drumming on Djembe, bought an Native Instruments Maschine MK2 and now I stranded on this nice MPC 1000. It was a long walk to be ready to play with her. I got her a 256MB Ram here: Then I bought a JJOS for 123 $. Then I bought a SD to CF adapter here:

Then I installed everything and was soooo excited to play with here. So I sampled some of my old childhood-tapes and chopped them. After I finished this session, I saved the whole project. For test I shut down the device and back on. When I wanted to load the project, it loaded just one or two samples and changed the name of the rest to some hieroglyphic extraterrestrial alien message. So all the samples was missing.
I looked at the SD to CF adapter and noticed the bad production quality.

At this point, because of sampling my childhood-tapes, I fell in love already. Was like using my old GameBoy with the four batteries. Man I loved it. This experience felt like finding a new purpose of my life. But man this saving problem....
So I decided to buy a new cf card here:
So again I chopped some samples and want to save the whole project. Now she got stucked at 94% of saving the first sample. Nothing happened after 10 minutes. So I shut down this baby and the samples was lost again. I retried this a couple of times. When I save a project with one sample it is fine. But when I save the whole project it got stuck randomly at some samples at some point. Like overwrite one sample called "WOlKe" and got stuck at 45%.

Can you help me please?

Stay away from large CF cards. I had freezing problems till I got a micro SD to CF adapter and never had a problem since.
Have fully formatted and tested the micro SD? I sense that it might be a fake

Thanks for your help!
Yes I followed a tutorial on youtube. I formatted the micro SD inside the adapter inside the MPC 1000 with jjos. I did this twice after the first crash. After the second formatting the problem persists (sorry no native speaking).

So your best advice is to use a smaller compact flash card? Can you advise me a brand and what max. size. I want to be sure before buying because I bought a adapter and a expensive big cf-card and both is not working. I am not that kind of a rich kid, that can buy 10 cf-cards per month guys/ladies, haha.

I bought this adapter now:

It is more expensive, so maybe it has better quality. I will use it together with:

So because you noticed that my micro sd is maybe a fake. I don't think so because it is from amazon...but who knows.
