Sometimes, when I have the micro track in recording mode it freezes. This tends to happen after it's been in recording mode for 15 minutes or more. I don't have the problem on shorter recordings. The screen will read that it's recording (showing the round dot in the upper left hand corner) but meters are not moving. When I press the red recording button to stop recording there is no response. The round dot does not change to a square. The menu button does not respond. I cannot get rid of the "recording" screen unless I press the power button which turns off the whole machine, and, of course, I lose the file that I was recording. I have been recording in the mp3 format, so I always have plenty of recording time left when this freezing problem occurs. Any suggestions? Thanks--

Hello may be you try to say what type of tapes used your unit, if yes it is a micro cassette size see link for some available for your unit. http://www.tvps.com/Departments/Dictation-Accessories/Cassette-Tapes/Micro.aspx
I'd contact the service beforehand. If you think, that that behaviour was due to a software, ie. firmware issue, google for Sony PCM-D1 service manual. I wouldn't precisely describe the procedure, but generally a some ten-click-sequence is required for entering the service mode which allows for factory resetting the recorder. I don't think that the reset procedure can harm the device, but for example, if one attempts to reflash the firmware and the prodedure fails - due to power problems, for example but also due to other things which could happen - then the PCM-D1 could be regarded as busted. The repair includes qualified service with SMD repair facilities and a new board to replace that failed one. Therefore such a complicated service mode sequence, just as a precaution I think.
Convert the audio to Mono WAV (16Bit, 44.1KHz). This can be done by using Cubase(Hope you got Cubase LE with Zoom). In an empty project import the audio, then mark the whole track using the Draw tool and then got to File->Export. Here select the above options and export. Import this file into Zoom H4 either by copying directly into the memory card or through connecting the Zoom to computer ( I copy it directly into the memory card's STEREO folder). Now if you import it to any project, it will appear there. You can now use Zoom H4 as a Karaoke device!! Anyway, sad that Zoom H4 doesn't support stereo tracks in the 4Track mode.
Most of the time you have to convert the wav files to another format Such as MP3 or WMP. there are converters available for this purpose online.Google audio converters. Maybe you will find one that you can afford . Or even find freeware.
I attempted to open an audio file in my computer via the port on the recorder. it tried to open the file in Adobe Audition but could not read the file. Afterwards when I attempted to play the files on the recorder it would not register the files as a track exsisting on the machine. huh? wuh happened?
