SOURCE: I just bought a Zoom

OK... first thing is to make sure the SD card is 2 Gb or less as larger won't work.

Many of the SD card has a protect switch that prevents writing to the card... it is a real tiny littl thing to move with your fingernail. You might need a magnifier to see it.

So I assume when you say you downloaded the latest drivers, you are talking about the version 1.3.0 from this source:

Ok so to configure Apple Logic Pro to use this control surface follow these instructions:


1. Select "Preferences" > "Control surfaces" > "Setup..." from the "Logic Pro" menu. This opens the "Setup" window.

2. Click on the top left "New" and select "Install" from the pull-down menu.

3. Select "Mackie Designs/Mackie Control/Logic Control" from the list in the "Install" window and click the "Add" button.

"Mackie Control" will be added to the setup window.

4. Click the "Mackie Control" icon. Then, from the top of the list at the left set "Out Port" and "Input" to "ZOOM R16_R24" using their pull down menus.


1. Select "Preferences" > "Control surface" > "Controller Assignments..." from the "Logic Pro" menu. This opens the "Controller Assignments" window.

2. From the "Zone" column select "Control Surface: Mackie Control." Change the functions as you like.

3. Controls F1~F5 correspond to the F1~F5 keys on the R24.

The above procedures are for Logic Pro 9. The names of the menus, for example, might be different in a different version of Logic.

Make sure you have run all the MAC OSX updates from your System Menu > Check for updates.

This device needs full USB power so don't run it off a USB hub unless its a powered one.

H4n zoom wont record says card protected

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

SEtting tempo on metronome Zoom R24

The metronome speed is controlled by the Tempo setting. The metronome controls only adjust the volume of the metronome and if the metronome is heard on the input or output recording. The R24 manual is available here: . See page 20 for setting the Tempo. The Tempo button is below the Tempo label to the left of the LCD display on the right side of the Zoom R24.

I hope this helps.

I am not able to use 4GB Sony SD card in my CTK 5000 Keyboard. It is sensing but I am not able to format the SD Card and flashing 'Card R/W Error'.

It appears that a LOT of devices cannot use cards greater than 2Gb. You will find on page E72 of your user manual that the SD card must be 2Gb or less for this unit.

I have the a Casio Keyboard that has an SD slot, but whenever i put songs on my SD card & then plug it into the keyboard, it says that there is an ERROR . What am i supposed to do . Step by Step . to...

Does it say ERR NO FILE? If so, then read on. The reason you have this error is because you don't have a folder on your sd card named MUSICDAT. Solution:
  1. Insert your sd card into computer
  2. Make folder called MUSICDAT.
  3. Then, transfer all files inside the folder (make sure your songs are in MIDI format).
  4. Safely remove your sd card.
  5. You're ready to put it in you Casio Keyboard!
If you still get the error, take time to read you manual. Read the "using the sd card" part. The folder name might be different for your Casio Keyboard (because mine's a CTK-5000).
...and IF you still get the error, perhaps the songs you meant in your question are MP3 songs (like the ones you play on the iPod)? Then, that's a different topic... :)
Well then, good luck!

I think my Micro BR is broken

It is either that you put an incompatible SD card in it. (Believe it or not, many devices will not work with certain SD cards), or the card reader has failed. Try a Scandisk SD card or other popular brand and see if there is any difference in the messages. Otherwise I would say the card reader is faulty.
