Fostex MR8-HD Hard Drive Errors

I'm also getting "Illegal Format" and "E01" errors and I'm unable to format the drive in the unit or even create a new song. When I try and format I also get an "Unable To MkSngTbl" error. I've put in a new hard drive and see the exact same errors so I'm thinking this is something on a flash drive or CMOS???

If you can reformat the drive after dumping out anything you want saved MIGHT fix the problem...

The unit MAY not be able to tolerate fragmenting when you delete a snippet here and there... It may require large blocks of contiguous space.

SOURCE: My Fostex MR-8HD states "Illegal song name" when

On page 22 of your manual, it appears that the warning message is used for more than one thing.

Make sure that you have entered the new song name text and it is accepted since if the name is not entered and accepted you will get that message.

If the text is unacceptable OR you try to advance to song creation when name has not been accepted will bring up that message.

The manual is really poor and I can understand your frustration.

It is UNCLEAR to us exactly at what point in the entry the message appears. Have you entered all the song name using all letters and then selected the enter function below? Does the message appear before you select the enter? or after you do...?

Bounced trks 3&4 to 7&8 clicked on wav file button canceled says out of capacity


You have a memory problem. If you are using a flash card for memory or a CD drive or perhaps you have configured an external drive, you need to free up some space. Try deleting tracks or songs you don't need anymore.

Each song is independent on a CompactFlash
without affecting other songs. You can give a desired song name for managing recorded songs
(see pages 23 and 91).
Recorded track data is stored in a song as mono WAV files.
The MR-8mkII can convert the two WAV files recorded on tracks 7 and 8 (L and R) to a stereo
WAV file (see page 115).
You can export the converted stereo WAV file to your USB-connected personal computer, and
use the file by a music software application or make an original audio CD on the computer using
a CD burn software application. You can also burn an audio CD by using an external CD-R/RW
drive connected via the [USB HOST] port of the MR-8mkII (see page 115 and 123)

How long should it take to format a Fostex MR-8HD 40 gb drive?


The speed will depend on the speed of the processor used. However if it has not finished after 8 hours, shut it down and restart if it seems the drive is in endless loop. Check jumper settings before you restart..

My unit is stuck in "Please Wait" mode.


The hang up is LIKELY due to the unit NOT getting a ready signal from the internal HD or CD.

If you can do a FORMAT on the HD by doing an initialize that would be the first thing to try.

These two devices may have a failure... OR the best case is if a cable connector to them has fallen off.

Why does it say "Illegal song name?" No matter what I type in for a song name on my Fostex MR-8 HD I get this same message. I am not typing in the name of a song already recorded. Even if I just use the...


Note that the name of the song CANNOT have blanks and the use of special characters is limited.

If you need a space in the name you have to use the underscore to creat a "space".

I have a Fostex MR-8 MKII 8-track recorder, and as soon as I turn it on it says 'card error' and 'illegal format'.My compact flashcard is 2GB Sandisk, how can I solve this problem?


First you can format the flashcard FAT-32 on your computer. If that does not help your card maybe broken or the brand is not supported. Than try to use another brand. Kingston and Transcend always make te best choice.

Fostex MR 8 HD\CD adding treble and bass?


It APPEARS that the MR8 does NOT include the ability to EQ. They have delay effects and the like built in, but no EQ.

To answer your question then, you would need to have an EXTERNAL EQ unit and loop the vocal through that unit to do EQ to do it right.

When mastering, the "powerful/natural/and bright would be filters that will emphasize the bass (powerful) or the treble (bright) but these are really not EQ's and you can ONLY choose one at a time.

Compactflash reads error


You need to verify that your card is confirmed to work in the MR8 at this site:

It is OBVIOUS that your card is not acceptable because it is larger than 2GB.

Hard drive failure


First thing is to open the unit and make sure the drive is connected. Sometimes cables get knocked off.

Next get a new drive... they are relatively inexpensive, like $69 or so and try it.

Take the old drive in your hand and snap your wrist to impart a spin to it. Then try the drive again... If it comes back to life, SAVE ALL THE DATA from it quick, and transfer to the new drive.
