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?
Thanks,
Cynthia

    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!!!!!

Bounced trks 3&4 to 7&8 clicked on wav file button canceled says out of capacity


You have a memory problem. If you are using a flash card for memory or a CD drive or perhaps you have configured an external drive, you need to free up some space. Try deleting tracks or songs you don't need anymore.

Each song is independent on a CompactFlash
without affecting other songs. You can give a desired song name for managing recorded songs
(see pages 23 and 91).
Recorded track data is stored in a song as mono WAV files.
The MR-8mkII can convert the two WAV files recorded on tracks 7 and 8 (L and R) to a stereo
WAV file (see page 115).
You can export the converted stereo WAV file to your USB-connected personal computer, and
use the file by a music software application or make an original audio CD on the computer using
a CD burn software application. You can also burn an audio CD by using an external CD-R/RW
drive connected via the [USB HOST] port of the MR-8mkII (see page 115 and 123)

How can I record my songs to my tablet or my laptop


The best way is to use the USB output from the Fostex. Connect the USB cable from the Fostex to the USB input of the notebook. A Windows computer should show a USB Audio Device in the device manager. If not, you'll have to get a driver from Fostex and install that. But it should just work, it did in my Vista notebook. Then simply get any number of recording software packages (Windows 8 may have a built-in app). I've used Cool Edit and Reason 4 for recording and editing. You should not record the songs using the notebook's microphone input because (1) the analog noise of a recording generated by the notebook's A-D converter is horrible, and (2) you'll have level and impedance matching problems, even after purchasing something like a pair of Bogen WMT1A line matching transformers. Once you've got it recorded, put it in the cloud and download it onto your tablet. I don't think tablets have USB ports, but maybe yours does.

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.

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 Fostex.com, 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.

My Fostex mr8 hdd "full"


If you can reformat the drive after dumping out anything you want saved MIGHT fix the problem...

The unit MAY not be able to tolerate fragmenting when you delete a snippet here and there... It may require large blocks of contiguous space.

I have the Fostex MR-8 mk II without the burner. I'm having trouble as of late at exporting my finished song to a laptop computer. It's worked fine in the past. Could it be my USB cord is bad? The computer...


USB cords are cheap and can often be found even in Thrift stores... try a new one to eliminate that possibility... I will say they RARELY go bad unless they have been abused.

Remember that reading a USB stick by the computer is FAR different than transfering data from the Fostex...

MAKE SURE the driver for the Fostex in your computer is intact...

OFTEN the stupid DLL files that were working get CLOBBERED by new software and suddenly old things that used to work don't anymore... Thank MS for the stupid thing of allowing new software to change DLL's.
