The drivers must to be installed

Do this:

1) BE SURE that you have been set the right driver on your computer
2) If not go to USB "unknow device" (My Pc >> Properties >> Hardware >> Device Manager)
and select Properties >> Update Driver

3) Insert the CD of MR8 or select the path in your computer where the drivers are

4) Install the driver

PS: If you are installing the driver from internet, "save" the driver to your computer first

How do you check firmware version or update the firmware on the MR8 MKii? I have the .mot file from the website but it comes with no instructions.


GO to USB, set Card Protect=Off

Then start up USB Device Mode

The Fostex will come up as an external drive. Copy the .MOT file over to the root directory (where all the folders for your songs are).

Using Windoze' Safely Remove, (or Mac's Eject) disconnect the Fostex from the computer.

Disconnect the MR-8 from the USB cord.

Now hold down the STOP key and press Enter at the same time. This will cause a new option, the Service Menu, to appear. Click Enter, scroll on down to Version Up. Hit Enter again, and you'll see your file (MR8MV105.MOT in my case). Click Enter again, and it will ask you to confirm. Follow the instructions; press both RECORD and ENTER at the same time to continue.

Then you'll see File Loading, then Flash ROM erasing, then Flash ROM writing, then Completed, please hit STOP key. Then turn it off at the switch, and back on.

Assuming all went well, when you hold down the STOP and press ENTER, the Service Mode will come up again. Press ENTER, then press ENTER again (for Version) and confirm.

Enjoy!

Importing track to Fostex MR-8MK 2


I just got an MR-8 and had the same problem. Google and download Wav Manager...convert your files to mono (.wav) or else it won't export. I searched everywhere for several days and stumbled upon the solution woohoo!!!

Recording


You take the .wav from each track from mr-8 and insert to desired track in your software. Use a CF Card reader to make this easier.
