New compact flash card reads "blank card" then when I push record reads "full card"

I purchased a San Disk Ultra II compact flash card, 8GB. When I first insert the card it reads: "BLANK CARD", but when I go to slide the record button to record it reads: "FULL CARD" and does not record. I am new to this machine, so I am not even sure if I bought the correct card.

I thought the problem may have been a faulty flash card so I returned same and exchanged it for another one, but the same thing happened.

    Hold down Edit button until "Renumber" comes up and then press the Edit button 3 or 4 times until you see Format, then press the Play button twice. It should go through the formatting process and say 100%, give it a sec and it will say done. Card should work.

I had this problem too recently. The unit needs a firmware update. The only hitch there, is that you need to send it in to the D&M Pro (Marantz Professional Equipment) Service Center to get the update. No cost to my knowledge, other than shipping.

Call 630.741.033 or e-mail techsupport@d-mpro.com and they should be able to take care of you.

Your files are probably corrupt. I encounter this problem quite often. You could try to repair with Easy Recovery Professional. I manage to repair my files most of the time

R-09 broken, don't know where I can repair one fast in UK


Hi Igor,

You have probably long since either had your Edirol repaired or found a replacement. If the latter situation is the case, and you have your R-09 sitting around collecting dust, I might be able to help. The buttons likely did not fall off, but were pushed back into the unit. Try opening it up by unscrewing it from the bottom (First open the battery cap) and carefully opening it up. You'll lkely find the buttons pushed back into it.

I learned this after a friend dropped mine at my wedding. Determined, I set out to fix it.

Good luck to you or anyone else reading this post,

Peter II

Unformat


Just solved this very problem with the same machine.
1. Carefully remove the flash card and take a look to see if any of the connecting holes look visibly damaged.
2. If so with a birght light look inside the card port and see if any of the contact pins are bent.
3. With a thin scew driver carefully try to bring the pin back up straight and carefully ( not forcing ) replace the flash card.
Power up and see what happens. It worked for me.
I think our problem was caused by the purchaser either inserting the card the wrong way round or forcing it into te card port.
Once in, leave it there and just record and erase as required.

Good luck.

The erase button is on the right hand side of the recorder. When you are on the message that you want to delete, then hold the erase button down. The message will start to play and an erase message will flash. Push the erase button down again and it will delete the message. Continue to do this for each message until you have the desireable amount of free space.

Recorder says "PLEASE DOWNLOAD FILES," but there are no files to download


The DS-2 has a format option in the menu under submenu. After you choose start you will see a progress bar and it should return to full record time. Use on a MAC seems to cause the reduced record time more often than on a PC.

This is suppose to hold hours of recording time and mine only holds a few minutes. How do I increase the time?????


Two things to try: make sure you have a big enough memory card for the intended format and recording time. I suspect you are trying to use the 16MB Compact Flash card that came in the box. A 1GB card will record much longer than the battery life in the Microtrack 24/96, even when recording 24-bit stereo in WAV format. If you have a smaller card, and want long recording times, use an MP3 format. Using the MP3 encoder, monophonic recording, 128K bits/sec, 44.1K samples/sec, you should be able to record over 16hrs of audio on a 1GB memory card. Same card, WAV encoder, 44.1K samples/sec, stereo, 24-bit audio will produce only a little over one hour of recording time. With the 64MB card that came with the recorder, the most you can record using WAV encoding, 24-bit audio, 44.1K samples/sec, is a little less than 4 minutes. With 16-bit audio about 6 min, and with mono and 16-bit audio about 12 min. With WAV, 24-bit audio, mono recording yields 7:52.

Smart media card


These recorders can only read the 4MB and 8MB cards. Good luck finding those smaller cards.
