    I am having a simliar problem with my MR8-HD. I recorded my live 2-piece band on iit under file name "Song 2" and it's somehow not there! I know I recorded it bc I can see a song 2 folder in my PC but says it's corrupted! frustrating as hell sinc eour band recorded brand new material on it and I can hear it. If anyone has any idea on how to get access to a corrupted folder off the multi track please let me know. Thanks.

On page 22 of your manual, it appears that the warning message is used for more than one thing.

Make sure that you have entered the new song name text and it is accepted since if the name is not entered and accepted you will get that message.

If the text is unacceptable OR you try to advance to song creation when name has not been accepted will bring up that message.

The manual is really poor and I can understand your frustration.

It is UNCLEAR to us exactly at what point in the entry the message appears. Have you entered all the song name using all letters and then selected the enter function below? Does the message appear before you select the enter? or after you do...?

Why does it say "Illegal song name?" No matter what I type in for a song name on my Fostex MR-8 HD I get this same message. I am not typing in the name of a song already recorded. Even if I just use the...


Note that the name of the song CANNOT have blanks and the use of special characters is limited.

If you need a space in the name you have to use the underscore to creat a "space".

I have a Fostex MR-8 MKII 8-track recorder, and as soon as I turn it on it says 'card error' and 'illegal format'.My compact flashcard is 2GB Sandisk, how can I solve this problem?


First you can format the flashcard FAT-32 on your computer. If that does not help your card maybe broken or the brand is not supported. Than try to use another brand. Kingston and Transcend always make te best choice.

I have the Fostex MR-8 mk II without the burner. I'm having trouble as of late at exporting my finished song to a laptop computer. It's worked fine in the past. Could it be my USB cord is bad? The computer...


USB cords are cheap and can often be found even in Thrift stores... try a new one to eliminate that possibility... I will say they RARELY go bad unless they have been abused.

Remember that reading a USB stick by the computer is FAR different than transfering data from the Fostex...

MAKE SURE the driver for the Fostex in your computer is intact...

OFTEN the stupid DLL files that were working get CLOBBERED by new software and suddenly old things that used to work don't anymore... Thank MS for the stupid thing of allowing new software to change DLL's.

Compactflash reads error


You need to verify that your card is confirmed to work in the MR8 at this site:

It is OBVIOUS that your card is not acceptable because it is larger than 2GB.
