Have just bought a Zoom HD8CD 8 track recorder. Is there an easier way to learn how to use it other than the 213 page manual?

I have a Zoom H4N and i am unable to select different modes on my recorder. There is actually no 'mode' available in my menu. How do i fix this? It is brand new out of the box.

If your H4n is in STAMINA mode (Switch in battery compartment) then MODE is not viewable in the MENU. Simply Turn off the STAMINA Switch and restart your H4n (Turn H4n OFF then ON again)

Hope that Helps

My zoom stop recording after one hour with plenty of memery on my 16 gig sd card

Which firmware do you have? It should say on the screen when you turn it on. If it 1.10, or 1.0, you need to update the firmware by going to the Zoom support page:
Directions and firmware download is all there.
If you are already on 2.0 or 2.4, then try reformatting the card with the Zoom. This will delete anything on the card, so backup first!! Good luck.

File import in 4-track mode impossible

Convert the audio to Mono WAV (16Bit, 44.1KHz). This can be done by using Cubase(Hope you got Cubase LE with Zoom). In an empty project import the audio, then mark the whole track using the Draw tool and then got to File->Export. Here select the above options and export. Import this file into Zoom H4 either by copying directly into the memory card or through connecting the Zoom to computer ( I copy it directly into the memory card's STEREO folder). Now if you import it to any project, it will appear there. You can now use Zoom H4 as a Karaoke device!! Anyway, sad that Zoom H4 doesn't support stereo tracks in the 4Track mode.

Mac OS 10.4.11 does not recognize the Zoom H4 recorder

Mac OS 10.4 and higher require the Zoom H4 to be upgraded. 
Go to  and choose the download to version 2.20 that applies to you. The instructions are there, but it is a little tricky. You must download the upgrade to your computer and then transfer it to your Zoom SD card.  To do that you need an SD card reader.  I used my digital camera. I took the SD card out of the zoom and put it in the digital camera. I Plugged the camera into the computer and when the SD card icon appeared on the desktop I dragged the "System Bin" file from the download to the zoom folder.  The rest of their instructions were pretty good.   Good Luck.

Distortion with Zoom H4 as Audio I/O to computer

try using the power pack instead of batteries. Be sure to remove the batteries before using power pack, you can wreck the machine if you do not remove batteries. NEVER use the H4 on power pack while there is batteries inside.

How to erase recordings on the Panasonic RR-US500

I called the Future Shop where I bought the recorder and the salesman looked at the manual online and saw that the Delete instructions do not tell you what you need to know.

To Erase or Delete recordings from this recorder, you have to select the track or file you want to erase, hit the Erase button, see that track number flashing THEN hold the Erase button down for a full second.

You can toggle until ALL comes up and then erase all your files at once if you wish.

You can also hit the Erase button first and then select the track you want recorded. The important thing to know is that you then have to see the number flashing THEN hold the Erase button down for a full second.
