I am sure this unit might work for some people but i didn’t get any joy myself. March 23rd, I hooked the device up to my GL2 and recorded about an hour of footage – first thing I noticed is when I hit record with my GL2 with a tape in the citidiso, the citidisk did nothing – I had to manually hit the record button on the back – again a small issue that I figured was firmware which it was.

Lauri, you mention that you’re using the citidisk with your Canon XLH1 batteries. By the looks of it, the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind may have influenced some key design decisions. The dropped files were short and not playable at all.
February 21st, I lined it with a nonslip rubber so the drive fit cittidisk perfectly and the battery I made layed on top of it. I formatted the disk and again tested. I tried every file format and finally found that.
