Question about Edirol R-09 Digital Voice Recorder
I use a field recorder Edirol R-09 for nature, wildlife and music.
The recorder fell onto some tiles and some buttons fell off.
I need it urgently. When I enquired I was told by Edirol to send it Los Angeles and that the process would take a mighty four weeks.
I cannot afford the time. ...and I don't have the money to buy a replacement.
Any suggestions would be most welcome.
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,

I know this is old, but..I just solved a "freeze" problem with mine. It was booting up, but none of the buttons seemed to do anything at all. Inserting the SD directly into my macbook pro SDSX slot.... if you don't have this, any USB SD reader will do, I erased all the data (and partitions) from the SD card. Using Disk Utility (again, Apple) and making sure it has the MS-dos compatible format. When I re-inserted into my Edirol device, I re-formatted the SD card, and all works perfectly now.This problem occurs if you don't format the card often enough, and then if you can't do it from the machine, try this solution. I think the data struggles to overwrite properly after a while and gets stuck, so format regularly folks!Hope this helps someone out there!N
