If your are using Mac OS 10.4 I cant help you, but if youre using 10.5 USB won't work with the H4 unless you go to the Samson/Zoom website and download the new driver for Mac OS 10.5

File import in 4-track mode impossible


Convert the audio to Mono WAV (16Bit, 44.1KHz). This can be done by using Cubase(Hope you got Cubase LE with Zoom). In an empty project import the audio, then mark the whole track using the Draw tool and then got to File->Export. Here select the above options and export. Import this file into Zoom H4 either by copying directly into the memory card or through connecting the Zoom to computer ( I copy it directly into the memory card's STEREO folder). Now if you import it to any project, it will appear there. You can now use Zoom H4 as a Karaoke device!! Anyway, sad that Zoom H4 doesn't support stereo tracks in the 4Track mode.

Cannot connect to PC


Do you have an SD slot in your mac? plug the sd card there and see if it works. Erase manually the files (leave the system files) and try again with the H4. Luck

H4 randomly stops recording on cubase le


I may possibly have solved this. I didn't realise that when I log off from Cubase, the ASIO driver returns to the Multimedia ASIO driver, which seems to be the default setting.

Every time I want to record with the Zoom H4 in future I'll need to reconfigure the ASIO driver to the H4 one.

I thought once I'd set the driver, it would remain there every time Cubase booted up. Apparently not.

Upload recordings from zoom h4 to ipod


if you are using a Mac running Leopard (Sys 10.5), you need to upgrade the H4  firmware from Zoom website
http://www.zoom.co.jp/english/download/software/h4.php

You will need an external SD card reader.
Once you do this, you can them plug in the Zoom to the mac with a usb cable, then select Connect to PC with the jog wheel.
The disc should show up on you desktop, and then you can download the files - (Should be in the folder marked STEREO)
Good Luck

I have just downloaded and installed the version 2.20 of the software for the H4 from the Zoom site. It solved my problem and the H4-SD card now shows up in the Finder as expected.

Note that I formatted a spare SD card to do this update in order not to lose any existing sound files.

Zoom h4 Vista recording


Don't know if this is the problem in your case ... but here's what I did:
Note: I have Win XP
Previous to attempting connection between laptop and H4 as an audio interface I updated the H4 firmware to ver2.4 and connected to the laptop successfully as a card reader. From the laptop, I could see files I knew were on the H4 card.
... but when I tried connecting in Audio I/O mode, my laptop didn't know what to make of the H4. There was a USB mass storage driver associated with the H4 - I could see this from the "Device Manager". I "uninstalled" the USB driver associated to that "unknown" USB device. I terminated the audio connection on the H4, then reconnected. !!! It was recognized as "USB Audio Device" in the "Sound, video and game controllers" section of the "Device Manager". Before, it was listed under "Universal Serial Bus controllers" as a generic USB device with a yellow warning highlight indicating there was something wrong.
Hope this helps!
