Question about Zoom H4 Handy Recorder

H1 won't connect via USB

Hello, I'm having trouble accessing the SD card-reading function on my new Zoom H1 (out of the box today). When I connect the H1 to a computer via USB (I've tried by Mac and PC) nothing much happens. The manual says I should connect the H1 when its power is OFF. I've tried that, and the computer neither detects the H1, nor does the H1 spring into life and display "USB card" or "USB audio" as the manual says it should. I've tried connecting when the H1 is on. The ONLY noticeable sign that anything is happening is that the battery icon disappears. So it would seem that the H1 can draw power via the USB cable. But otherwise nothing. The cable and the usb ports work ok with other devices. I'd much appreciate any ideas.

SOURCE: I have a Mac 10.6.6 Trying

If the Mac will not recognise the usb through zoom this could probably be as a result of compatibility issues between both systems. If you absolutely have to read the card through the zoom USb you can try using a different OS like windows on another machine. But if it is not compulsory you read it through the zoom USB you should simply take out the memory card and use a card reader to read the memory card. This should be able to function on your mac.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Why a low remain record time on zoom h1 handy recorder when .wav setting in use?


when you record in .wav format, the files ARE better quality, however, they are ALOT larger than a standard .mp3...if you can't tell the 'loss in quality', i would suggest to keep recording as .mp3...but if a .wav is preferred, then i would suggest upgrading the SD card. ..hope this helps.

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

I just bought a Zoom H1 and the SD card won't format. What should I do?


OK... first thing is to make sure the SD card is 2 Gb or less as larger won't work.

Many of the SD card has a protect switch that prevents writing to the card... it is a real tiny littl thing to move with your fingernail. You might need a magnifier to see it.

Chances are you need a driver in your PC compatible with Vista. There are MANY compatibility problems with Vista and special devices such as the Micro Br.

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
