Ok, try this, works for me: - Remove the batteries- Insert its again- Connect the recorder via usb to pc- Copy one by one each archive you need to recover, after copy delete them from the recorder- Copy SYSTEM, RECORDER AND MANUALS FOLDER to pc- Format from the pc the recorder (i use a mac - disk utility) yes it is, ERASE!- Copy again the folders: SYSTEM-RECORDER-MANUALS- Unplug the recorder, remove the batteries, insert again- Turn on the recorder, it will display a different error, format the recoder, it will restore and reset the systems files.- It works for me!-
I have this same problem. I have 3 cards. 1 of them my Marantz PMD671 just doesn't like, and produces the error message "you need format on PC". I can format it on PC, and use it normally, but the PMD671 will not have it. The card is a cheapo Dane-elec. I give up at this point.
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.
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.
