Take out the memory card, there is a little switch on it. One position is protected which means you can't record or delete anything from it, the other position is normal where you can record to or delete from.

Trying to record a mix through a peavey board. I do not get a high pitch hum until I click rec on my Mac. I am connected via usb to the mixer board. Any suggestions on what I might could try to stop this...


First, check your levels on the console. Is anything turned up high, channels, gain settings on channels? Check and see if the noise exists whith the main outputs muted or turned down. If it goes away it is a fader or gain setting on a channel. If it persists, then you have a co nection issue with the USB . Try a different cable. Make sure the Mac is on the same electrical circuit as the mixer, or if it is on battery, try adding it on the electrical circuit with the mixer. See if location of the mixer to the computer makes a difference as well. They may be too close to each other. Hopefully one of these things will fixya.

I have a zoom h4n. I can't get anything but low record levels. I have tried manual and automatic level control. The manual says I should select auto rec and then select start lvl, but when I select auto...


I use an earlier model but try:

Press the "red" light on the correct channel you are using for input. that will bring up the dialog to set input level. the +/- level set is on the same side of the device as the menu wheel.
You need to be in 4CH mode for the external lights to be on

I can only hear static through the headphones on my Fostex MR16. The recording sounds fine when I transfer to computer, but I can't hear myself playing.


They make headphone amps that will take a line level and boost it in volume until it can drive headphones. I'd get one of those, and plug it into any available "line out" or "rec out" on the back of your Fostex. Sounds like the D/A converter section that feeds the headphone output has gone bad, and my solution will get you around that.

H4n zoom wont record says card protected


SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Does anybody know how to fix built-in microphones on rolland BR-600. When I attempt to record, the only sound that gets recorded is noice (hissing sound), and that only after cranking rec volume and mic...


Most of these have a SETTING in the menus that selects the source from different mics and/or line inputs. If the setting is to the line input instead of mic, and no audio is connected to the line input it will act like you described.

I just bought a Zoom H1 and the SD card won't format. What should I do?


OK... first thing is to make sure the SD card is 2 Gb or less as larger won't work.

Many of the SD card has a protect switch that prevents writing to the card... it is a real tiny littl thing to move with your fingernail. You might need a magnifier to see it.

My recorder keeps coming up Card Full when I press record, but I have a new stick in it, please help ;)


Format the new card in the unit. Often the delivered format in a new card is not compatible.

The memory card says unformatted card


Refer to your BR manual for procedure to format the card. Formatting the card in a PC just doesn't cut it.

Look in your index in the manual for "formatting" or "card"...etc.
