MR16 Hard Drive Full

I have a Fostex MR16. My hard drive is full. It will not let me record anything. There was a post on musicians friend that said the same thing. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Seed

SOURCE: my MR16 says HDD full-

I had the same problem. After some reasarch I found out that even if you erase a song the data is still on the recorder in "hidden files".

What you have to do is download the WAV manager software from Fostex.com, then copy all your files to your PC, reformat the hardrive on the Fostex, and copy the song files back on to the Fostex form your PC.

I know it's a pain in the ****, but I guess that's one reason this thing was so inexpensive.
I still am very happy with mine, but after 3 years of constant use in my case, some type of maintenence can be expected to happen.

Funlux surveillance hard drive issue. 1 tb, is full, need formatting , it takes 5 minutes plus to format. Every 2 minutes it reboot, trying to record, won't finish formatting. Disconnected cameras,


You did not post the model of the unit. There is a port for external drive support and there is an internal drive depending on the model. You can try formatting on a computer if you would like or you can select OVERWRITE recording when the HDD is full
1. Access the [General Settings] and open the [Disk Drive Info] page. 2. Open the drop-down menu at the top next to the "Hard Disk Drive Full", select "Overwrite" and press save.

I can only hear static through the headphones on my Fostex MR16. The recording sounds fine when I transfer to computer, but I can't hear myself playing.


They make headphone amps that will take a line level and boost it in volume until it can drive headphones. I'd get one of those, and plug it into any available "line out" or "rec out" on the back of your Fostex. Sounds like the D/A converter section that feeds the headphone output has gone bad, and my solution will get you around that.

My Fostex mr8 hdd "full"


If you can reformat the drive after dumping out anything you want saved MIGHT fix the problem...

The unit MAY not be able to tolerate fragmenting when you delete a snippet here and there... It may require large blocks of contiguous space.

Hard drive failure


First thing is to open the unit and make sure the drive is connected. Sometimes cables get knocked off.

Next get a new drive... they are relatively inexpensive, like $69 or so and try it.

Take the old drive in your hand and snap your wrist to impart a spin to it. Then try the drive again... If it comes back to life, SAVE ALL THE DATA from it quick, and transfer to the new drive.
