    This issue was resolved by installing the post 2008 update, even though the pre 2008 update was suggested due to the manufacturing year being 2007

To delete a Track from a playlist, you must currently have that Track selected in the display. Pressing the DEL TRACK button will cause a confirm delete page to be displayed,where "Song 01" is the name of the Track to be deleted. Pressing UP/YES will remove that Track from the playlist, moving the next Track in the playlist in its place. Pressing DOWN/NO will cancel the operation and return the unit to its previous state.

NOTE: Deleting a Track from a playlist does not delete the audio samples from the hard disk. The audio remains on the disk in an "Audio File"

Yikes, that is pretty much as bad as it sounds. That means you have major hardware failure inside the device, specifically the control board of the player. This is basically the main piece of the device and is quite expensive to replace, many times the board itself costs more than a new unit, let alone and service charges to put it in. Unfortunately you are going to be far better off just replacing this unit.

One thing to try, to see if somehow it is just a temporary glitch (I doubt it is, but worth a try) is to just unplug it from the power source for a good 5 minutes, then replug it in. Hopefully that will "kick-start" the board back into gear and get it working at least for a while again. Definitely worth a try.

Thanks,
Tim

SOURCE: Alesis Masterlink ML 9600 won't power up.

Instead of going for the big deal, I'd start small. Look at the drives first. I'm in the process of rebuilding a Masterlink, and I got the "178" error after installing the new 30GB HDD because I left the jumper in the factory position ("Cable Select"). I repositioned the jumper to "Master" and no more error. The CD drive is currently out of the unit (being replaced) and that's creating a 277 error. I'm assuming once the replacement CD drive is installed (tonight) that will go away too. Replacement hard disks and cd-rw drives are cheap- . I'd try swapping them out and/or examining the jumpers and cables before assuming you need more expensive electronic repairs.... Good luck! I may need it too!

My Masterlink is 7 years old. Do I need to replace my hard drive? How many hard drives, make and models? Thank you. Bill Dorsher


Any 3.5" IDE hard drive will do, it doesn't need to be a large one, as the Alesis will only 'see' the space it needs to - google 'standard ML9600 hard drive size' to see, I can't recall offhand.

You don't HAVE to upgrade the OS if the machine is working fine. You WILL have to install it on a new HDD if you install one.

For what it's worth, I could only get the OS to install from a disc I made on a Windows XP PC. Three or four attempts from a Vista machine all failed. Win 7 and 8 are unknown territory for me.

Make certain you have an OS disc BEFORE you replace the HDD.

Disc failure while to burn a CD on the Alesis Masterlink ML-9600


The Alesis fitted with a standard computer CD drive, there's an online list somewhere of compatible drives. Take the lid off, unscrew the current drive, and replace. It sounds like the drive is faulty. Online instructions all over the place on how to replace these drives in PCs - it's no different in the Alesis

What would cause discs burned recently on my Masterlink to not playback on others CD players?


Good day sir/ma'am hi, its a reality that not all CD players are alike, the burning of the CD which can't be read by other CD players can be caused by the following:
  1. quality of CDR and CDRW.
  2. lens compatibility.
  3. speed of writting and rewritting.
  4. scratches and marks on the CD.
  5. playback circuit that reads the CD.
  6. DIstance of the lens.
  7. manufacturers use different formats and methods of burning. and alot more.
For as long as the CD you burn on your masterlink can be played on itself, your fine. You can try burning the CD on the PC for more compatibility on the CD player.

I accidentally deleted a recording on the Masterlink ML-9600.


I realise this problem is years old, but for the benefit of anyone with the same problem -

It depends on whether the track has been deleted from a Playlist, or from the Track Storage Area itself. If it's only been deleted from a Playlist, it will still be on the machine

Scroll beyond the end of any playlist, and you'll find the stored tracks. It's only possible to delete a track permanently by going through a 'This will permanently delete the track. Are you SURE?' prompt, so you can't say you weren't warned....

Alesis Masterlink ML 9600 won't power up.


After reviewing the repair and owners manuals. I have come to the conclusion that there is a short in the power supply board. Your drives should be fine. I don't know off hand how expensive it is to fix in your area. I would say approx $200
