Phantom power on my Fostex MR-8 MKII

I have tried every thing the manual tells me to activate the phantom power...and it will not come on.It just blinks and retuns to the home screen,and when i return to the input selection menu to check if the phantom power is on, it says it's off,even though i turned it on...any help?

I had the same problem. Your recorder may need a software upgrade. Go to the following link and upload the "Product Support Bulletin." Follow all the steps. You will need to go to the Fostex web page for the update. My phantom power has worked since I did this.

Hope it helps.

You take the .wav from each track from mr-8 and insert to desired track in your software. Use a CF Card reader to make this easier.
