Severe crackling during recording

.i assume the crackle you'r getting it when you are using the built in mics? i;m still in the process of troubleshooting my 2g but this is what I've got so far....the line in dosn't suffer from the crackel, so it cracked here open , didn't see any obvious problems on the board so i disconnected the black wire from one of the built in mics and this is what i found: odd and strange..... the crackle went away but i haven't tested that in depth yet 2. when recording it looked like i was getting some thing on both tracks odd.. thought 1 channel would be dead. anyway i got tired and put it away and haven't gotten back to it yet but about time i did so hopefully this weekend . hopefully i'll have some more useful info.. now a note on my take so fare as to where the crackle is coming from , bear in mind i've only had about 3 hours with the 2g so far so still getting acquainted. i'm getting the feeling it might be associated with the ACG or the record level auto calibration or clipping etc.. because i noticed that it seems like its starting ,checking levels, and setting things the a spike and it resets and starts over again. how ever the pattern is to random from what I've seen so far to to be anything concrete

I got it to work.

First, I downloaded the software from the Radio Shack site at:

Once downloaded, I ran this to extract the files to my hard drive under c:\4300127.

Next I went to my Device Manager (My computer->Manage->Device Manager) and under Other Devices found my 43-127 recorder.

I right-clicked on this and selected properties. Then I clicked Update Driver.

I then selected "Browse my computer for driver software". I then selected the C:\43-127 directory and selected ok. I got a warning about not finding the publisher but I opted to install the driver software anyway.

One other thing I noted; When I start the recorder software I have to select "Run as administrator" otherwise the files aren't able to download to my hard drive. This may be just due to a security setting on my computer.

Hope this helps!

I cannot delete files because the are locked. How did this happen? I don't know. How can I unlock these files?

Your DS-40 DVR has lock function to avoid important files from being accidentally erased.Locking and unlocking a file folder can be found on page 68 of your user manual.

An electronic copy of DS-40 DVR User Manual can be downloaded on this link.

Authentication key

It would seem the encryption key is specific to the Secure Folder that is on your recorder.
All the other folders should be public access.

So when it requests an encryption key, just type in anything.
It will sternly tell you that this is the incorrect input and then promptly allow you to access most of your folders anyway.

This should be sufficient unless you have vitally important voice recordings that need secure encryption (recording stored in the secure folder), In that case, it's time to Pay The Man.

Unlocking the DM-20 digital recorder

Unfortunately if you are unable to unlock using the Lock Unlock feature. You will need to format the device. This will erase all data and unlock the machine to be able to record to it again.

This is suppose to hold hours of recording time and mine only holds a few minutes. How do I increase the time?????

Two things to try: make sure you have a big enough memory card for the intended format and recording time. I suspect you are trying to use the 16MB Compact Flash card that came in the box. A 1GB card will record much longer than the battery life in the Microtrack 24/96, even when recording 24-bit stereo in WAV format. If you have a smaller card, and want long recording times, use an MP3 format. Using the MP3 encoder, monophonic recording, 128K bits/sec, 44.1K samples/sec, you should be able to record over 16hrs of audio on a 1GB memory card. Same card, WAV encoder, 44.1K samples/sec, stereo, 24-bit audio will produce only a little over one hour of recording time. With the 64MB card that came with the recorder, the most you can record using WAV encoding, 24-bit audio, 44.1K samples/sec, is a little less than 4 minutes. With 16-bit audio about 6 min, and with mono and 16-bit audio about 12 min. With WAV, 24-bit audio, mono recording yields 7:52.
