    I turn on the Microtrack and it is frozen. It will only turn on and off.

    Frozen with light on, menu displayed. Can't power off or access any functions. Is there a hidden hardware reset (insert paper clip in hole)? I can't find one.

    I can turn the system on and off, but the menu page won't respond to any comands or buttons being pressed.  I errased the card, and reinstalled it, but it still doesn't function.

I was able to clear the same issue by removing the CF memory and erasing it using a USB card reader connected to my PC. I erased all the files and reinstalled the card in the Microtrack. Works fine now, must have been a corrupted file even though it only contained two mp3s I had recorded earlier.

    I know how to take out the memory card. Mine is the own that came with the Microtrack--128 MB. Once I have it out of the M-Audio recorder, though, how do I erase it? What's a "USB card reader"? Do I need to buy one??

If you are running on battery, remove the batteries. Then re-insert. That will reset your recorder.

Hello, My M-Audio microtrack 24/96 battery runs out so fast. What do I do? Is it time to change it? Is getting a new battery expensive? Do I not charge it long enough? I let it charge for at least 4 hours...

Similar problem to mine, and until I get my question answered, I can only propose a temporary solution.

Get a USB cable that fits the bottom small USB socket on your M-Audio Microtrack, but with a standard USB plug on the other end. Such a cable should have come with your Microtrack to begin with.

Replacement cables can be found at Best Buy, Radio Shack or most electronics stores or department stores. If the original cable is broken, please save it for reference to make sure you are getting the exact same type connectors when getting your replacement.

As I learned the hard way, not all small USB connectors are the same size, but APPEAR the same.

So, what are you connecting on the standard USB end?

A battery.

That's right, a rechargeable battery that features a power-only 5 volt USB receptacle. This will function as your A/C power adaptor does, only on the go.

The external rechargeable battery I use is a Black and Decker "Power to Go" unit that measures approx. 5 1/2"L X 3"W X 1" D.
It has both a low-draw two-prong AC (yes, it has an inverter and I never use it) and the desired 5V USB receptacle. You may find a better solution WITHOUT that A/C inverter. Just ask around for a rechargeable NmHh (better than NiCad) battery with a standard USB receptacle.

If the Microtrack's power is off when it is connected to the 5V power source (be it A/C power adaptor OR my proposed external battery), it will go into charge mode. With a fair amount of charge, remove the external power, and it boots up into operation. Then, re-connect the external power and your Microtrack is running and recording for a considerable longer time, depending on the charge and condition of your external battery.

Now, if one observes the LCD screen while running off of external power, the upper right corner box indicating the internal battery's charge shows "CHG" instead of the black square (Full charge) or half of the box in the form of a triagle (half charge) or any variation thereof as normaly indicated.

Someone might say, "But I don't want to have to carry around all this extra stuff! I want my old battery life back!"

Well, that's precisely how I feel as well.

But until you get your original lithium ion battery replaced (and at what cost for parts and labor?), you have to ask yourself if being an original condition purist is serving your situation well, or if this proposed add-on can get you by in the meantime.

Take care.

Olymp. DS-330,None of the Buttons respond at all,only hold slider

If you remove the batteries and reinstall, does the display indicate Hold at some point? The hold button sometimes breakes and doesn't activate the switch. Pop off the hold button and move the internal switch manually.

MicroTrack Levels are off balance

That sounds like a hardware problem requiring a service. The front-case buttons are sensitive to pressure and I suspect that they go bad if stored where something is pressing against them.

Sounds like you are pressing the red button twice. The first time starts recording and the second time closes and writes the file to the memory card. If you don't think you are pressing the button twice, you may have a bad unit. Make sure you have checked with M-Audio to get the latest software before you reject it as a bad unit.

No response

RTFM You need to press the play button to turn the unit on. Then the menu button works as advertised.
