    Many thanks for trying. However still the same problem - no icon appears, no matter what I do! It 'pings' as if it's going to come up, then nothing happens. It was fine the first time I used it and I could download successfully.Don't know what to do!

Hi. I use mine with a Mac. The instructions say it's the same for PC. From the 'off' position, plug in the usb cable to the computer, hold down the 'copy/ usb' button and switch it on. The display will read 'usb' and the icon -"should" appear on the desktop. Open the folder and look for files with machine ID. Failing that, try new usb cable? or the techies favourite: "switch everything off and start again" LOL

I agree with the previous solution, but make sure that the 660 is plugged in, mine will only work when its powered!

When I press record, it says Err Card 1. I've tried a new card and formatting. Any ideas?


Sorry to say that it's clear that this Marantz recorders develop this problem over time and Marantz has offered no solutions. When I first purchased this recorder it was enormously reliable and stable, but I find now that it is totally the opposite -- often it has recorded for a while and then suddenly develops an inability to read the SD card and so either quits recording or freezes up.
There seems to be no clear solution to this, and the random nature of the problem makes the recorder wholly unreliable in a live or field setting. This is, sad to say, unacceptable.

Open the Internet browser and navigate to the Marantz.com website. Select "Products," then choose "DVD Players."

Click the software update to download to your computer system


Plug the USB flash drive into a USB port on the computer, then click "Start," "(My) Computer," then double-click the removable device icon. A window loads with all of the files stored on the flash drive.


Click-and-drag the software update into the open window, then close the window, right-click the removable device icon and select "Eject."


Disconnect the flash drive from the computer once the icon disappears.

Plug the USB flash drive into the USB port on the rear of the Marantz DVD player, then power on the device. The software update will upload onto the DVD player. A prompt on the television screen appears once the update has finished.

Cant get mp3 files from my marantz pmd620 to play on my mac


Well, try copying them to a folder on your computer. Also, make sure that the files are not proteced with DRM. If these fail, open iTunes. Select all of the MP3 files and drag them into your library. That should fix it.

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.

Marantz PMD671 recorder - download problem


I need to know what model mac you have. This would help. Also what operating system you are using. Older macs may not be compatible unless you update the system. The latest macs with the intel chip work fine with this. Once quick solution is to update your software to the latest versions by going to your apple with your mouse in the upper left corner of your screen and then clicking it. Scroll down to the title software update. click that and then click update now. Check the boxes of all you want to update and then hit enter. *Note: you must be connected to the internet in order to make these updates. I would suggest being connected something faster than dial up.
After you have done your updates, try to reconnect the Marantz. Remeber to connect it first then turn it on.
Another solution is to format the card on your mac first by using a card reader and the program Disk Utilities located in your utilities folder. It is important to choose the Fat 32 format (You will see this in your pull down menu). Note: This will erase everything on your card.
If you have a card reader, you can always take the card out of the recorder and try to read it that way as there may be a communication issue with the mac and the recorder, but if it can be read on the PC and not the mac, I doubt that is the issue.

I have a PMD660 as well and from time to time a memory card will become "corrupted". During a recording last evening the battery ran out "prematurely" and when replaced, the 660 had the unformat error. Fortunately the card was readable in my Hummingbird card reader.

Normally when I have had UNFORMAT problems in the past I would just FORMAT the card with the computer and the 660 would then be happy with it. Not this time! The 660 still stubbornly displayed UNFORMAT! This time I ended up having to use Partition Commander to wipe out the partition on the card and then DISK MANAGEMENT in the XP's Computer Management program to re-create the partition and format FAT32. Normally when you FORMAT all data is lost so this would end all hope of recovering data from the card.

In the case of hoping to recover lost recordings I would have tried QUICK FORMAT and then tried to "recover" the data with a program like Partition Magic or Partition Commander or some other program that could re-link the blocks and create directory entries.
