Dear Dustyseas (Sharon Albeson)

Righteo then sharon, here is your manual location, so if you click the link, then you will get your manual for free, thats right, the site says it is FREE. The site is http://www.retrevo.com/support/RCA-RP5013-manual/id/402ci671/t/2/

now this is for the RP5013, but i think the manual for this model will match your one.....If not then http://www.retrevo.com should throw up your model number, and they apparently seem to be a good enough site to use too.

You may need to get hold of a copy of adobe acrobat, or adobe reader, and you can get this by going to www.google.co.uk and typing in the search bar with the following aptly named text "adobe reader" or "adobe acrobat free download" This should take you to the site to get your FREE COPY......thats right, this should NOT COST YOU A PENNY ((hopefully))

Well good luck with this, and hope this is the fixya for you.

Take care, and best regards

Yours sincerely

Oz

SOURCE: RCA's RP5120 Digital Recorder has VOC format, can't share or copy to CD

Version 4.04 of the software has a utility to convert to .VOC files to .WAV or even .EXE. (Are there really folks who would prefer to receive an .EXE file in email?)

I've read in several reviews that you can save .VOC files as .MP3 files using the provided software, but either this feature is no longer available, or the reviewers were mistaken.

You can convert .WAV files to .MP3 files simply. You may find one such converter for free on C|NET at:
http://www.download.com/WAV-to-MP3-Encoder/3000-2140_4-10060500.html

A 5 minute google search (wav to mp3 freeware) revealed 3 absolutely free utilities which will do this. I, too, wish mp3 support was native with this product, but I can live with using these utilities.

Hi, I'm having trouble with my marantz recorder. I've reached the 999 track limit, but despite deleting older tracks it still won't let me record. The solution must be something basic I've...


Since you have reached the 999 track limit, it is possible your CF card may have been corrupted.
On page 28 of your manual you should find the instructions for formatting your CF card.
"How to Format a CF Card."
This may get you going again.

Hope this helps.

When I press record, it says Err Card 1. I've tried a new card and formatting. Any ideas?


Sorry to say that it's clear that this Marantz recorders develop this problem over time and Marantz has offered no solutions. When I first purchased this recorder it was enormously reliable and stable, but I find now that it is totally the opposite -- often it has recorded for a while and then suddenly develops an inability to read the SD card and so either quits recording or freezes up.
There seems to be no clear solution to this, and the random nature of the problem makes the recorder wholly unreliable in a live or field setting. This is, sad to say, unacceptable.

How to format a new CF Card without getting a display message that says "must format on PC"?


I have this same problem. I have 3 cards. 1 of them my Marantz PMD671 just doesn't like, and produces the error message "you need format on PC". I can format it on PC, and use it normally, but the PMD671 will not have it. The card is a cheapo Dane-elec.
I give up at this point.

New 4GB CF card for E5400, camera gives 'out of memory' message


So far as I am aware, the 5400 will support only up to 2GB cards. As to the firmware upgrade you mention, I don't recall that that has any bearing on the max. card capacity; but it's worth doing for the RAW format support (for me, at least). Cheers and good shooting. Davo, Tas.

Err format while recording - 1 hour lost!


I have almost the exact same problem.

I did not interrupt my recording. I stopped recording, turned off the recorder, unplugged all the mics, turned on the recorder, listened to the first 10 seconds of the recorded track, turned off the recorder, plugged it into my mac, turned it on in USB mode, attempted to transfer the track file, and the track size is "zero kb." I ejected the recorder, turned it off and back on, and now the track says "err format" and skips to the next track.

This seems like a unique problem, as any "data recovery" software will search for deleted files instead of corrupted files. And even if the file is corrupted I have software that can read the raw wav data. However, the filesize is incorrect and obviously doesn't contain any wav data. Shouldn't it be the actual file size? How can I fix this???

Marantz PMD671 recorder - download problem


I need to know what model mac you have. This would help. Also what operating system you are using. Older macs may not be compatible unless you update the system. The latest macs with the intel chip work fine with this. Once quick solution is to update your software to the latest versions by going to your apple with your mouse in the upper left corner of your screen and then clicking it. Scroll down to the title software update. click that and then click update now. Check the boxes of all you want to update and then hit enter. *Note: you must be connected to the internet in order to make these updates. I would suggest being connected something faster than dial up.
After you have done your updates, try to reconnect the Marantz. Remeber to connect it first then turn it on.
Another solution is to format the card on your mac first by using a card reader and the program Disk Utilities located in your utilities folder. It is important to choose the Fat 32 format (You will see this in your pull down menu). Note: This will erase everything on your card.
If you have a card reader, you can always take the card out of the recorder and try to read it that way as there may be a communication issue with the mac and the recorder, but if it can be read on the PC and not the mac, I doubt that is the issue.

Unformat


I have a PMD660 as well and from time to time a memory card will become "corrupted". During a recording last evening the battery ran out "prematurely" and when replaced, the 660 had the unformat error. Fortunately the card was readable in my Hummingbird card reader.

Normally when I have had UNFORMAT problems in the past I would just FORMAT the card with the computer and the 660 would then be happy with it. Not this time! The 660 still stubbornly displayed UNFORMAT! This time I ended up having to use Partition Commander to wipe out the partition on the card and then DISK MANAGEMENT in the XP's Computer Management program to re-create the partition and format FAT32. Normally when you FORMAT all data is lost so this would end all hope of recovering data from the card.

In the case of hoping to recover lost recordings I would have tried QUICK FORMAT and then tried to "recover" the data with a program like Partition Magic or Partition Commander or some other program that could re-link the blocks and create directory entries.

Solution to CF Recorder Click Noise Problem! Hi, ever since I got my Netbook, I was annoyed about the click noise, most Netbook users hear, when recording straight to a Compact Flash Disk. Problem To test if you are suffering from this problem, make the following test: 1. Make sure you have a CF disk in D: (or E: ) 2. Start the Recorder application. 3. Select File/New File and enter any name using the drive the CF is in (D or E) 4. Make a recording, for about 10 seconds, preferably in a quiet room without saying anything. 5. Playback the recording. You will hear a clicking sound often about once every second (varies according to CF-Card used)! 6. If you hear no clicking sound and the recording sounds clean, you have no problem! Solution I have just spent a couple of days at Photokina (the world's largest photographic trade fair currently on in Cologne, Germany) visiting CF-Manufacturers with my Netbook to get to the bottom of the problem. Basically, the problem is caused by the buffer in the CF-Controller emptying faster than it is being supplied with data. This affects a lot of CF card manufacturers and the only solution (apart from recording on C) is to use a CF card with an Hitachi Controller as that is the only controller which takes account of this problem and handles the data stream correctly. I tested a number of CF-Cards at the show (only Dane-Elec refused to let me test their card) and this is the result of my hard work: CF-Cards that Work Correctly: SimpleTech (all SimpleTech CF-Cards use the Hitachi Controller) Casio (Hitachi Controller) Hitachi (of course) DataFab (the sample I tested worked, they did not know which controller) Extrememory (Some work, some do not) Note: Large CF-Cards can still have problems. Even the SimpleTech 512MB CF-Card produced the click noise whereas the 256MB card was OK! CF-Cards with Click Problem: Sandisk (incl. Ultra) Toshiba (all 3 controllers tested) Dane-Elec (not tested, but uses Toshiba controller) Those were the cards I tested. Perhaps the members of this forum can post their findings on other makes not mentioned above. I personally made the mistake of buying a Toshiba card and had no end of problems. I must say that the people at Toshiba were very helpful and let me test a range of their cards. I will now be returning my Toshiba card and ordering a CF-Card from Simpletech as the cards I tested worked well. I have no connection with any of these card manufacturers! However, I do recommend that before buying a CF card for the Netbook, from any manufacturer, you should always do the above test, first! Remember, in most cases I could only test 1 card per manufacturer so each card could differ. Test before you buy is very important in this case! I hope this helps!
