    I was burning a song onto a CD-RW. When the BR-1180 prompted me for finalization of the disc, I selected NO so I could burn another song onto the CD-RW then the BR-1180 froze up. While it was froze, it was making a loud buzzing noise. I manually unplugged it from the output. I waited a minute or two then plugged it back up, turned it on, and now it is doing the same thing your's is doing. Also, I tried finalizing the disc after all this happened and it gave me a MEDIUM ERROR message. Neither of these error messages are stated in the Owner's Manual.

Before you go out and buy a new hd try intializing your system.
unfortunaly you will lose all saved info, but you will either way. this test may save you some money.
with your 1180 in the off position press and hold the track 5 button below the fader and the redo/undo button that is just to the left of the rotarty knob and below the power button. while holding these two buttons press the power button and continue to hold the track 5 button and the undo redo buttons untill the test menu is showing. its takes about 15- 30 sec. in the test menu rotate the value knob till you see 23 initialize HDD and press ok. this process may take up to 30 mins. if this doesnt fixya then contact roland for a replacement.

Unfortunately this does fix the problem but clears all the data so you lose everything. BACK UP consistently and constantly.

The Humming Is Normal When The Unit Is Not Properly Placed On Something That Is Level Make Sure You Find A Flat Part On Your Dresser Or Wherever It May Be. I May Add DO NOT EVER UNPLUG THE BR-1180 WHILE IT IS RUNNING Unless You Like Losing All Your Data. As For The Hard Drive Problem Call Roland They Are Extremely Helpful. It Is Unlikely That Your Whole Hard Drive Is Fried

My Boss BR-1180 was working fine but said NO CD DRIVE so I replaced the cd drive and as soon as I did I turned it on it reads BOSS BR11-80 and the HD ACCESS light stays lit but nothing else happens. Did I...


hdd should not be damaged, if your hd and cd are on same ide cable it might be taking the cd as master and not the hd, ensure the jumper on the back of the new cd drive is set in the same position as the old one was, as test remove cd and boot system, hd should act again as usual. this will show that there is a ide conflict.

my assumption is that your cd jumper should be set to slave or cable select position.
you may have to try each until you find the position that works.

I hope this was useful.

regards Martin.

My Boss br-8 keeps saying medium error. It's not reading any disc. It ask me to initialize disc that already have music on them.


If the disk had music that was not CREATED on the BR-8 you will get the error. The format is incompatible with computer formats.

If the files were created on the same BR-8, then you probably have a disk drive failure.

Try initializing a blank disk. If it will not, then you have a drive failure.

Also is it possible you are trying to read a 250Mb disk on a 100Mb drive? That won't work either.

BR-1180 freezing & high-pitch ring


Check your power supply to the unit. Low voltage COULD cause this.

Also make sure a setting is not "looping" the audio back into itself.

What do I need to burn a cd from my pc with the br 1180


This Is real simple grab a cable that goes from rca jacks to a headphone jack then plug the rca jacks into the br-1180's audio out jack and then plug the other end into your computers mic port.
Download Audacity From www.Audacity.com and then use it to capture you audio and then you can burn that when complete.
Its real simple I do it all the time even though I have the br-1180cd the cd burner burns real quiet so I don't use it. The cable can be bought at radio shack, best buy, wal-mart and I have even seen them at 99 cent only stores.
If you have more question let me know This Is my main unit so I know a lot about it.
Sincerely,
Michael Scott

No CD writer for Boss BR-1180


Hey mike yeah you can hook a regular cdr drive to the ribbon but the problem is if its not a slim it most likely wont fit inside the unit. Also the built in c.d r is way over rated mine has it and I still bounce it all onto my computer and then burn it from there. The one on the br-1180cd burns very quiet.

Is the Boss Dr-5 compatable with the Boss BR-1180 mini studio?


Midi doesn't actually "make sound". If your trying to record the patterns you made on the DR-5 to the recorder you need to use an audio output(I don't remember if they are RCA or 1/4" on the DR-5.) The midi output would be used to"trigger sounds" in another device that has sounds built in, or you could also trigger sounds in a program that supports midi input.
