My roland br 1600 cd rec.studio is just over a year old.I have 4 songs currently on it (80 gb) and it says HD full.It cant be full ....I cant work because of this error...


Yep... the hard drive is 80GB... so if you have 80GB of songs (not hard to do) it is full. Purge some off to make space. Those must be either long songs or have a lot of high frequency stuff using a lot of data to store them or a lot of tracks per song. For stereo recording two tracks using computer I chew up about 1 GB per hour. If you have armed more tracks this could really jump up... and these units may not be as efficient as the new software PC DAW's. I would recommend purging existing songs to a safe media and then reformatting/initializing the drive in the unit.

My Boss BR-1180 was working fine but said NO CD DRIVE so I replaced the cd drive and as soon as I did I turned it on it reads BOSS BR11-80 and the HD ACCESS light stays lit but nothing else happens. Did I...


hdd should not be damaged, if your hd and cd are on same ide cable it might be taking the cd as master and not the hd, ensure the jumper on the back of the new cd drive is set in the same position as the old one was, as test remove cd and boot system, hd should act again as usual. this will show that there is a ide conflict.

my assumption is that your cd jumper should be set to slave or cable select position.
you may have to try each until you find the position that works.

I hope this was useful.

regards Martin.

I have a Boss 1180 cd player to record music on. I have recently taken it apart because it needs a new hard drive. I was needing to know what would be a compatible hard drive for a good price. The orginal...


FAT32 is a formatting standard of the disk where 32 bits are used for sector pointers. It is one of the standards and replaced the original FAT16 when larger drives required more sectors than the 65K that the FAT16 provided addressing for. The FAT32 gives one 65K times 65K total... even that is too small for the newer big drives so there are a couple of other standards now to accomodate these newer drives.

The FAT32 is still a current standard. DO NOT buy any USED drives from any source. You might also check TigerDirect.com.

Here is a good article to read:

What do I need to burn a cd from my pc with the br 1180


This Is real simple grab a cable that goes from rca jacks to a headphone jack then plug the rca jacks into the br-1180's audio out jack and then plug the other end into your computers mic port.
Download Audacity From www.Audacity.com and then use it to capture you audio and then you can burn that when complete.
Its real simple I do it all the time even though I have the br-1180cd the cd burner burns real quiet so I don't use it. The cable can be bought at radio shack, best buy, wal-mart and I have even seen them at 99 cent only stores.
If you have more question let me know This Is my main unit so I know a lot about it.
Sincerely,
Michael Scott

No CD writer for Boss BR-1180


Hey mike yeah you can hook a regular cdr drive to the ribbon but the problem is if its not a slim it most likely wont fit inside the unit. Also the built in c.d r is way over rated mine has it and I still bounce it all onto my computer and then burn it from there. The one on the br-1180cd burns very quiet.

BR-1180 won't power-up


I Own This Unit And I Tell You What I Love It And Cant See Myself Using A Computer Anytime Soon. You Can Open It Up And Check For Loose Connections By Removing The Screws Shown Here

Youll Wanna Remove The Disk Drive Cover First Indicated By The Blue Dots. Once Inside There Arent Many Connections To Check But Now You Can Unplug The Hard Drive And Try Powering The Unit On Again. See If You Get The Same Result. Once Thats Done Plug The Hard Drive Back In And Try Again To See If It Works.
If It Doesn't Call Roland Theyre Costumer Support Is Awesome And They Can At least Give You An Idea Of What May Be Wrong.

MY Boss br 1180 ,disk error


before you go out and buy a new hd try intializing your system.
unfortunaly you will lose all saved info, but you will either way. this test may save you some money.
with your 1180 in the off position press and hold the track 5 button below the fader and the redo/undo button that is just to the left of the rotarty knob and below the power button. while holding these two buttons press the power button and continue to hold the track 5 button and the undo redo buttons untill the test menu is showing. its takes about 15- 30 sec. in the test menu rotate the value knob till you see 23 initialize HDD and press ok. this process may take up to 30 mins. if this doesnt fixya then contact roland for a replacement.
