Question about Marantz PMD670 Desktop Digital Voice Recorder

1 Answer

Can't pull up Flah card drive on desktop

I was downloading some files onto my desktop. A few had been completed downoaded, some were in the process. I accidently did something and I got a message that said something like, "I didn't have permission to get to files," and the flash drive disappeared off of the desktop. I tried to get it back on both my Mac and a PC. What happened, and how can I get my computers to read the card so that I can pull download files?

    I'm using a Marantz PMD 670. I can turn on the recorder, and push play and still here the files, so I know they're still there. If you can be very clear in your instructions. I am very technical illiterate about these things.

    How do I reformat the flash drive on a MacBook Pro?

  • lovoy Apr 20, 2008

    This is the problem. My flash drive does not appear at all on my PC or MacBook Pro. So, how can I reformat it, if the icon is not appearing on "My Computer," or the MacBook Pro desktop?

    I appreciate your patience.

    It is OS X, Leopard, I believe. I've only had this MacBoook Pro for a little over a month.

    I have a small portable flash drive. It is getting detected on both my PC and my MacBook Pro. That's why I think there's something going on with my Marantz PMD670.


  • lovoy Apr 20, 2008

    I have tried to pull up the flash card (drive) on this PMD670 on two Macs and one PC, and it does not come up on any. Again, I don't know if I accidently did something to the PMD or accidently clicked on the flash hard drive when I was downloading files yesterday to make this happen.

  • lovoy Apr 20, 2008

    I have checked it on a Dell PC, as well. It will not come up on that either.

    As you said you got error and the copy operation was not complete in this case you cannnot recover any file because in flash drive you dont get a virtual copy of the file which was being attempted to copy
    so all you can do is format the flashdrive and re download the files which were being copied.

    Go to my computer you will see there would be a drive letter for your flash drive all you need to do is right click in the drive letter and you will get a drop down box from which you can select format option and thats how you can format the drive.

    Maanita Chadha Apr 20, 2008

    as u said it is not coming up on 2 systems it could possibly be an issue with teh falsh drive itself....however, before taking any further decisions for the same chk the drive on a windows based system if possible as both systems where u have tested it are based on mac os

How to recover erased file from panasonic digital recorder

Hi, there

First things first: DO NOT take any more videos or audio with the recorder that you want to recover files from in case you may quite possibly ruin your chances of voice memo file recovery.

Then connect your recorder to a PC with a recovery program installed. Photo Recovery Software (also recover Voice memos, audio and video files) is right what you need to use if you are running Windows. If you are Mac OS X users, turn to Data Recovery for Mac.

But you should remember - the more you use your recorder, the less likely you may be able to recover the deleted files back! So STOP using the device ASAP. Best regards!
