Micro BR...only have 16 mins of music/songs recorded. Did the "copy" procedure and did not say "card full". But, when converting to MP3 only total of 4 mins would convert. Why won't all of the 16 m
Why won't the full 16 mins of our song recording convert to MP3? We have only 16 mins of music recorded, nothing else. We did the procedure to "copy" (p. 58 in the manual) the data to be able to then convert the data to an audio file ie MP3 (page 127 in manual). The copy phase went to completion. But, the MP3 phase only converted 4 mins total. Again, why won't the entire copied file convert to MP3?

A very important thing when using these recording devices is to PROPERLY close the media. I would not panic at this point. Search for a forum regarding the Boss Micro BR and ask there as somebody may be able to help you recover the data. Read up on your manual about shutdown. I have Tascam recorders and I prefer to stop the recording and then when it is done I turn power off before removing the media. You may have to use a special procedure when introducing the nearly full card... even forcing it to load.
You need to understand what the program is doing.
An MP3 file is a recorded music performance like a phonograph record. A MIDI file is a set of instructions for performing music, like sheet music. The converter program is an attempt to turn the record into sheet music. There is no perfect way to do that. You should have gotten something out of the program, though. It sounds more like a computer problem. Try a very simple sound file, convert it to MIDI, and see if you can get something out. If your keyboard can't read it, try putting any known good MIDI file on the card and read that. Possibly your keyboard will only read certain formats or sizes or speeds of cards. See if the manual tells you anything. It might read FAT16 regular speed cards under 1 GB, for instance, and balk at a SDHC 16 GB NTFS formatted card. So, do some detective work.
Go to bossbr.net - Plenty of answers there! And yes, you have to master or export the tracks to .mp3 or .wav. These files will be located in the mp3 folder. Boss also makes a free .wav converter located on their website.
To download music to the sync is not as difficult as it may seem. You have a multitude of options but i'll just cover 2..... 1- there are website's through your phone that able you to download full songs.... 2- any song that is mp3 will play on the syc. there are also programs that will convert any music file to mp3... google- convert wma to mp3.... exct..... anyways after you have your your music set up as mp3... you can us your micro SD card that's in your phone (if you don't have one...radioshack usally has them on sale) make sure u have an thumb drive reader for the micro SD...... then drag/ drop your music..... insert micro SD back into phone and aslong as everything was done correctly.....
