If you are shooting with native 24p then you will get write errors no matter what.. it's just buggy right now. There are ways of helping it (i.e. by keeping the camera moving, or avoiding high detailed static shots), but the only way I've found to completely avoid any type of hiccup is to install B settings without native 24p. It's the only thing that will truly hold up against something even as heavy as the pappas star chart of death.

I think my problem is because I am on SH mode.
The C settings are not suppose to work with 60fps?

My settings right now is is c settings and 60fps->29.XXXfps and it seems to record fine now

What is the most stable 60fps settings?

I'd like 1080 24fps and 720 60fps

I'm using the following settings (http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/showpost.php?p=2053356&postcount=313) with 32Gb version of this card with no issue. FHD mode works without a hitch so far (for me). In SH mode I will very occasionally get a "card speed too slow error" that cancels recording (but preserves footage). For those rare scenes I have programmed slightly lower bitrate values for H and L modes. Never had to use L mode yet.
