Re: smart media card

These recorders can only read the 4MB and 8MB cards. Good luck finding those smaller cards.

My Sanyo voice recorder ICR-B100 is using SmartMedia 3.3V 16MB card. Can this recorder use larger card (eg 64MB, 128MB). Please reply asap. Thanks.

Hi thaiqtang

The Sanyo Handheld Digital Voice Recorder Model ICR-B100 almost certainly has a Maximum Recording Capacity of and can take up to 128Mb SD Cards.

If this capacity too low for your needs, some newer models have a much higher Maximum Recording Capacity and can take up to 8Gb SD cards. See some examples here:

I hope this helps.

Looking for a 64 bit windows 7 driver for lanier cquence m3

There is no 64 bit driver available for this model. The only option is to find a smart media card reader that works on a 64 bit OS.

How do you retrieve corrupted files on a DS-3300

If the files are corrupt then you could only retrieve corrupted files which would be useless.

New compact flash card reads "blank card" then when I push record reads "full card"

I had this problem too recently. The unit needs a firmware update. The only hitch there, is that you need to send it in to the D&M Pro (Marantz Professional Equipment) Service Center to get the update. No cost to my knowledge, other than shipping.

Call 630.741.033 or e-mail and they should be able to take care of you.

This is suppose to hold hours of recording time and mine only holds a few minutes. How do I increase the time?????

Two things to try: make sure you have a big enough memory card for the intended format and recording time. I suspect you are trying to use the 16MB Compact Flash card that came in the box. A 1GB card will record much longer than the battery life in the Microtrack 24/96, even when recording 24-bit stereo in WAV format. If you have a smaller card, and want long recording times, use an MP3 format. Using the MP3 encoder, monophonic recording, 128K bits/sec, 44.1K samples/sec, you should be able to record over 16hrs of audio on a 1GB memory card. Same card, WAV encoder, 44.1K samples/sec, stereo, 24-bit audio will produce only a little over one hour of recording time. With the 64MB card that came with the recorder, the most you can record using WAV encoding, 24-bit audio, 44.1K samples/sec, is a little less than 4 minutes. With 16-bit audio about 6 min, and with mono and 16-bit audio about 12 min. With WAV, 24-bit audio, mono recording yields 7:52.
