Can't connect the h4 handy recorder to a mac

Hello:

My mac does not recognize my H4 handy recorder when I connect it via usb... what should I do?

Thanks

SANTIAGO
I have the same problem. I have tried downloading the drivers from the Zoom website - but with no luck! Weirdly, the mac recognises it as an audio interface with Logic software: it records but won't play back what is recorded.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

I was made to understand that the Zoom H4 will not mount as a USB Drive on MAC OS X 10.5.0 Leopard unless you update to H4 Firmware version 2.10 or higher.

And here is the hitch, the updater will only work with Windows XP (SP2 or later) / Windows Vista. Additionally, since there are three types of system updater, verify the current system version from the start-up screen and use a proper updater. Further, an SDHC card cannot be used for version-up. Please use an SD card. To download Windows updtaer, pls click here.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

    This often happens when you connect the recorder to USB before having installed the driver on your Mac.

    Try installing the driver that you have downloaded, before connecting the recorder to the USB plug.

How to perform a factory reset on zoom H4


Hello ! Actually what you do is download the latest firmware from the ZOOM page. Find HANDY H4 (you can Google that) and go to the Download tab. Follow all instructions. Be sure to have new batteries or be plugged in to AC while you reset. I've done it on my H4(I have 2) and H4n and it worked fine. Be patient, it takes a while once you start. Good luck !!

I've bought a SDHC card 32 GB but Handy Recorder H4 do not recognize the card. I've tried to format it at the pc, but no way, the message is "no card"


Verify the device and card reader support SDHC. Try a 2g card and see if that works, typically anything 4g or larger is SDHC, older devices can not read such cards. It is quite possible that the card is bad.

Zoom H4 recorded data disappearing


I have a H4 but not that problem. Have you tried recording when the H4 is charged? My guess is when low on battery, the H4 doesn't record.

Can't connect the h4 handy recorder to a mac


If you are using a Mac running Leopard (Sys 10.5), you need to upgrade the H4  firmware from Zoom website

You will need an external SD card reader.
Good Luck
