Question about M-Audio MicroTrack 24/96

1 Answer

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

So frustrating. I press file, record, (if I even can get that far) and then it stops recording after 5-7 minutes!! I NEED to do an interview today and can figure the darn thing out.

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.

Display screen flashes "CHK" repeatedly


From FixYa Support: The "ERR" message reportedly means a memory error.

Please NOTE: This solution will wipe out the memory.

Press the STOP and DISP/MENU buttons at the same time for about 2 seconds, and then the display should show "FOR". It will supposedly erase the whole memory, but will at least make the device usable again.

Hope this helps.

Sony tape recorder- ICD-B310F there is no erase button, how do you erase messages

I have the same recorder (Sony ICD B310F) and in playing around with the buttons, I figured out how to ERASE THEM!!!

Go to the file you want to erase
Hold down the menu button (have to do this the entire time ) until you see the word "MODE"
While holding the menu button, press the forward arrow (like FF) and scroll until you see the word "ERASE"
Still holding down the menu button, press the play button.
Your file number will blink along w/ the word "ERASE", press the play button.

You should notice your file numbers decreased by one file. You have successfully erased the file.
