Zoom 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.

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.

SOURCE: I HAVE A ZOOM R24

Hello,

So I assume when you say you downloaded the latest drivers, you are talking about the version 1.3.0 from this source: http://www.zoom.co.jp/downloads/r24/

Ok so to configure Apple Logic Pro to use this control surface follow these instructions:

CONTROL SURFACE SETUP

1. Select "Preferences" > "Control surfaces" > "Setup..." from the "Logic Pro" menu. This opens the "Setup" window.

2. Click on the top left "New" and select "Install" from the pull-down menu.

3. Select "Mackie Designs/Mackie Control/Logic Control" from the list in the "Install" window and click the "Add" button.

"Mackie Control" will be added to the setup window.

4. Click the "Mackie Control" icon. Then, from the top of the list at the left set "Out Port" and "Input" to "ZOOM R16_R24" using their pull down menus.


FUNCTION KEY SETUP

1. Select "Preferences" > "Control surface" > "Controller Assignments..." from the "Logic Pro" menu. This opens the "Controller Assignments" window.

2. From the "Zone" column select "Control Surface: Mackie Control." Change the functions as you like.

3. Controls F1~F5 correspond to the F1~F5 keys on the R24.

The above procedures are for Logic Pro 9. The names of the menus, for example, might be different in a different version of Logic.


Make sure you have run all the MAC OSX updates from your System Menu > Check for updates.


This device needs full USB power so don't run it off a USB hub unless its a powered one.

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.

H4n zoom wont record says card protected


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.

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
http://www.zoom.co.jp/english/download/software/h4.php

You will need an external SD card reader.
Good Luck
