Question about Zoom H4 Handy Recorder

1 Answer

Display reads "No Card"

When I turn on my Zoom H4 with a 4 GB SDHC card inserted, the display reads "No Card." I updated the software from 2.18 to 2.20 with no luck. The Zoom H4 works perfectly well with the 512 MB SD card. Does anyone have a clue on what's going on?

    Thank you, bostatomica, for your reply. When I was first looking at the H4, there were sites recommending that I wait until a new improved version of the H4 came out that was able to handle 4GB cards. This was supposed to be one of them. In fact, mine came with a free 4GB card which worked for a while, but then failed. I never did figure out why it failed, but I'm presently using a 2GB card which works fine.

Zoom h4 supports cards up to 2GB. And, I'm almost sure, this is a thing that can't be upgraded through software.

    I see, well, then format the card, check the manual for that, I'm not sure how to do it. You're welcome, good luck!

Screen says "No Data" when any SD card is inserted. What to do?

My Zoom H2 recorder is not recognized by my new computer with Windows 7. What can I do to solve this?


No solution, just a workaround. I have used the H2 with firmware 1.90 successfully with Windows 7, but lately the H2 is not recognized anymore. Built-in obsolescence maybe?
Anyway, I just take out the card and put it in a card reader. It is faster also. Card readers are cheap.

My zoom stop recording after one hour with plenty of memery on my 16 gig sd card


Which firmware do you have? It should say on the screen when you turn it on. If it 1.10, or 1.0, you need to update the firmware by going to the Zoom support page:
http://www.zoom.co.jp/english/download/software/h4.php
Directions and firmware download is all there.
If you are already on 2.0 or 2.4, then try reformatting the card with the Zoom. This will delete anything on the card, so backup first!! Good luck.

Zoom h4 not recognized by computer


Mac OS 10.4 and higher require the Zoom H4 to be upgraded.
Go to http://www.zoom.co.jp/english/download/software/h4.php#a and choose the download to version 2.20 that applies to you. The instructions are there, but it is a little tricky. You must download the upgrade to your computer and then transfer it to your Zoom SD card. To do that you need an SD card reader. I used my digital camera. I took the SD card out of the zoom and put it in the digital camera. I Plugged the camera into the computer and when the SD card icon appeared on the desktop I dragged the "System Bin" file from the download to the zoom folder. The rest of their instructions were pretty good. Good Luck.

New compact flash card reads "blank card" then when I push record reads "full card"


I had this problem too recently. The unit needs a firmware update. The only hitch there, is that you need to send it in to the D&M Pro (Marantz Professional Equipment) Service Center to get the update. No cost to my knowledge, other than shipping.

Call 630.741.033 or e-mail techsupport@d-mpro.com and they should be able to take care of you.

I have just downloaded and installed the version 2.20 of the software for the H4 from the Zoom site. It solved my problem and the H4-SD card now shows up in the Finder as expected.

Note that I formatted a spare SD card to do this update in order not to lose any existing sound files.

Zoom H4 Recorder Says, "Card Full!" But it is NOT!


I encounter this error with my 16 gb SD card and Zoom H4n.
I try to format the card inside and outside fo the Zoom, use 8 gb and 32 gb instead of 16gb card and, but get the same error.

But I find a solution.

1. I format my SD card inside Zoom with builtin utility. (Menu - SD Card - Format)
2. I reinstall Zoom firmware
(instruction and download here: http://www.zoom.co.jp/products/h4n/software/ )
3. I format SD card inside Zoom again.

I took a several test and didn't get a "Card Full" error.
