Question about Marantz PMD660
I had been recording with the pmd660 for about an hour when an *extremely* noisy truck came by. Suddenly the machine shut off, so I stopped the interview and pressed record again, causing it to start a new track. When I tried to go back to that first track it said "err format" and immediately skipped to the next track (it was in WAV 44.1 format originally).
When I tried to open the tracks on my computer, the first track (the one that ended when the noisy truck came by) was the only one that wouldn't work. It appeared on my computer and seemed to be of the correct size, but when I tried to open it nothing played. I have tried to convert the format on my computer to an MP3, but that does nothing. Is there anyway to recover this lost hour of interview or stop this from happening in the future?
I have almost the exact same problem.
I did not interrupt my recording. I stopped recording, turned off the recorder, unplugged all the mics, turned on the recorder, listened to the first 10 seconds of the recorded track, turned off the recorder, plugged it into my mac, turned it on in USB mode, attempted to transfer the track file, and the track size is "zero kb." I ejected the recorder, turned it off and back on, and now the track says "err format" and skips to the next track.
This seems like a unique problem, as any "data recovery" software will search for deleted files instead of corrupted files. And even if the file is corrupted I have software that can read the raw wav data. However, the filesize is incorrect and obviously doesn't contain any wav data. Shouldn't it be the actual file size? How can I fix this???
