This Sounds Very Bad Do You Have Experience With Taking Apart Computers? If So You May Want To Open Up Your Br-1180 And Remove The Hard Drive And Put It In Your Computer And Copy All The Data Off Of It. I Also Would Recommend Calling Roland They Are The Most Helpful People In The World.

A very important thing when using these recording devices is to PROPERLY close the media. I would not panic at this point. Search for a forum regarding the Boss Micro BR and ask there as somebody may be able to help you recover the data. Read up on your manual about shutdown. I have Tascam recorders and I prefer to stop the recording and then when it is done I turn power off before removing the media. You may have to use a special procedure when introducing the nearly full card... even forcing it to load.

Chances are you need a driver in your PC compatible with Vista. There are MANY compatibility problems with Vista and special devices such as the Micro Br.

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.

Need Help on a Boss B R 8


I think I solved this problem.

I used a different power adapter and it works now. Try different adapters, I used an old Nintendo one. It is 9V 1.3A, even though the back of the BR-8 says 9V 2A

BR8 Digital recording studio lights up, but it doesn't do anything else


I called Roland at the number that you provided and gave they following proceedure which will re-intialize the BR 1180 and ERASE everything that was created on the HD:
  1. Simultaneously hold down button beneath volume control at track 5 and Undo/Redo button at upper right
  2. Press power button while holding down buttons as above, until test menu comes up
  3. Turn selector dial untill initialize screen shows
  4. Prdess ENTER and initialization will start
  5. Once initialization is completed, power off unit and then power it back-up.
NOTE: This proceedure erases all data!
