Question about Fostex MR8-MKII - 8 -Rack Portable Compact Flash Recorder MR8MKII for PC

1 Answer

My Fostex MR8 messages HDD disk full and it seems to have erased all of my songs. I had 21 songs and 3 versions in 7/8 WAV. Does that fill up the hard disk (older model doesn't have disk drives). Also can't transfer WAV file over. My computer does not see the USB connection. Help. Thanks. Best, Andy Optional Information: Make: Fostex Model: MR8 sound board Already Tried: shutting down and restarting bought new USB interface tried every menu option - what comes up is are you sure you want to delete entire disk - I always hit "stop" but the song list appears to be empty

If I were you I would pull the hard drive out, hook it up to an external enclosure and try to access via windows.
Is that something you could do?

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)

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.

How do you check firmware version or update the firmware on the MR8 MKii? I have the .mot file from the website but it comes with no instructions.


GO to USB, set Card Protect=Off

Then start up USB Device Mode

The Fostex will come up as an external drive. Copy the .MOT file over to the root directory (where all the folders for your songs are).

Using Windoze' Safely Remove, (or Mac's Eject) disconnect the Fostex from the computer.

Disconnect the MR-8 from the USB cord.

Now hold down the STOP key and press Enter at the same time. This will cause a new option, the Service Menu, to appear. Click Enter, scroll on down to Version Up. Hit Enter again, and you'll see your file (MR8MV105.MOT in my case). Click Enter again, and it will ask you to confirm. Follow the instructions; press both RECORD and ENTER at the same time to continue.

Then you'll see File Loading, then Flash ROM erasing, then Flash ROM writing, then Completed, please hit STOP key. Then turn it off at the switch, and back on.

Assuming all went well, when you hold down the STOP and press ENTER, the Service Mode will come up again. Press ENTER, then press ENTER again (for Version) and confirm.

Enjoy!

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.

Hello i want to take my tracks and make them on to one file


Try to use a program called nero wave editor. What is does is allow you to cut and paste on any wav file. You can inturn just past the one song after the other.

Hope it helps.

You take the .wav from each track from mr-8 and insert to desired track in your software. Use a CF Card reader to make this easier.
