Trouble with Fostex mr16 cd burner

I recently purchased a Fostex mr16 recorder with built-in cd burner. When I burn a song, the diplay screen indicates 100%. I have the start/stop points set correctly...but part way through the song when I play the cd, you can hear crackling, starting, stopping, and then it stops playing completely. I've made sure the disc is clean and scratch free...I've even tried 4 different cds...but it still happens at roughly the same spot. What could be the issue?

    My Fostex MR16 has been acting funny lately and today it just had an error during a "15/16>Stereo Wav File" action. It froze and after about 5 minutes I disconnected the power. Now I turn it on and it seems to have reformatted the machine. But when I hook it up to my computer, it says that the memory is almost full. And when I try to record it says I have only about an hour of recording time. Which is what it told me before it crashed. So now I'm thinking my songs are still on the MR16's hard drive. Like ghost files. All I want to do is access my MR16 and save the files to my computer. When I tried that all the folders were in a different language/code? How can I still get to these files? HEELLLPPPP!!!!!

I cant make recordings on my masterlink every time a record a few songs and try to burn a red book cd from the hard drive it says songs less than 5 seconds

Look at all the tracks in the playlist that you're trying to burn to CD - is there a track that you've perhaps forgotten about still in the playlist, one of less than 5 seconds?
When you press Create CD, you're telling the Alesis to create a CD from the WHOLE of the current playlist, not just the track you recorded most recently ...

My MR16 says HDD full- so I erased 12 songs and 10 wav files to free up space. No matter how much i erase it still says HDD full when i attempt to record. do i have to initialize and lose everything to...

I had the same problem. After some reasarch I found out that even if you erase a song the data is still on the recorder in "hidden files".

What you have to do is download the WAV manager software from, then copy all your files to your PC, reformat the hardrive on the Fostex, and copy the song files back on to the Fostex form your PC.

I know it's a pain in the ****, but I guess that's one reason this thing was so inexpensive.
I still am very happy with mine, but after 3 years of constant use in my case, some type of maintenence can be expected to happen.

To burn an audio cd on the vf160 you can only do this under two conditions. One, you can only burn mixed down program material; and the other condition is saving program to disc through back up file where you must pre set the Clipboard IN/OUT parameters.

Fostex mr16 eq/presets

In short - No. The Eq menu is the only way to affect the frequency levels on the inputs, but if you select stereo buss and listen to the inputs, you can hear the effect of each Eq on the relevant input.
