Could be because LP record mode was used.
Alo it may be tape dropouts.
Dropouts occur after too many record/erase cycles.

Shortcut for exporting multiple tracks

While not mentioned in the manual (page 68 dealing with usb export) you can indeed select multiple tracks to export to the fat partition at once. Under the 'wav in/out' menu item on the 'usb export' you'll see a track list. Simply press the 'insert' button next to any tracks you want to export and a check mark will be placed next to the track which flags it for export. When you press enter it will export all the checked tracks as wav files to the fat partition.

I have a Fostex DMT-8vl 8 track digital recorder. Can I dump the tracks to Acid Music Studio 7 or Acid Pro 7 to save what I recorded in the Fostex 8 track, and will it go into seperate tracks? Thanks...

You can copy. You cannot just dump the file data. Unless you have an audio interface with multiple inputs, you can only copy 2 tracks at a time. Also, to sync the timing you'll need a midi port on the computer. Then you make the computer the "master" and the Fostex a "slave" device.

Tascam cd-rw750 - while recording from another CD player (using digital coax connection), machine records for some time and then just "jumps out of record mode" and goes back to the beginning like nothing...

1. First problem: "like nothing is recorded". IS something recorded or has it been left in Pause Mode so long (instead of Recording) that it just got impatient and time out?

2. Get yourself a couple of CD-RW Digital Audio discs to play with until you're past this learning curve/problem scenario. That way you can always erase them and start over without having to discard the disc.

3. Dropouts on playback. Are they repeatable - always at the same place, even on different CD players? If so, the data is bad on the disc. If not, the data is probably marginal.

4. If you have a DVD player, try to play the failed recordings in it. Some DVD players can play back unfinalized CDR's. You may be able to recover the data by copying it back to the CD Recorder from the DVD player. Just be advised that an unfinalized CD-RW may not have 'silence' following the last recorded track due to old data remaining from a previous session, so be ready to pause or stop the recorder when the last track finishes.

5. "Scratches near the outside of the CD". Were these NOT present prior to entering the CD Recorder? Do they seem to coincide with about where the recording may have failed?

6. 20 vs 19 tracks: Is this a constant problem or only when there is a failure during CD creation? If the latter, it would make sense as the last track in isn't technically completed.

I have recorded single track on to rewritable disc. on windows media player . it has been finalised will not allow me to record another track to disc. How do i do this? many thanks ALEX

If you are using CD +/- R cds or DVD +/-, you can only write to them once. Once something has been written to the disk no mater how small, that is the only time it will write. In order to add multiple tracks to a disk you will have to create a play list that will fit on the disk then burn the entire list all at once. The only disks that allow for multiple write capabilities are CDRW +/- or DVDRW +/-. When using those types of disks, make sure you do not overwrite the tracks that are already installed on the disks.

Recording multiple tracks at the same time.

Yes you certainly can record the 8 inputs onto 8 tracks simultaneously. You will need to make sure you are assigning each input to each track individually by first pressing the input button for an input and then pressing the select button for a track. Do this for each input/track and then make sure all of the 8 tracks you want to record to are armed for recording (the red rec buttons above each should be lit) before pressing record and play together.

You might want to insure that no tracks are linked (you can see this by pressing an input and observing which tracks have their 'select' button flashing). If 2 adjacent ones are flashing for the same input simply unassign one of them by pressing the 'select' button above that track. Then you'll be free to assign the next input to that track as above.

Best of luck.
