Question about Boss Micro BR Digital Recorder

5 Answers

I think my Micro BR is broken

Recently it crashed when I was using it (switched itself off). I got a card read error when I turned it back on again and presumed the problem was that the SD card had corrupted. 
I got a new SD card, put it in. First time I tried to record it said "Card Full". Then it froze. Since then whenever I turn it on it just says "Song Loading..." and never gets any further.
The annoying thing is it's just out of warranty. I really liked this gadget but not keen on buying a new one if it's not going to last much more than 12 months. Anyone know if faults like this are commonly reported with them? anyone know if Boss are likely to help? etc. Thanks.

I don't know whether it would be of any help to do a "factory reset" when switching on your Micro BR the next time.

It is either that you put an incompatible SD card in it. (Believe it or not, many devices will not work with certain SD cards), or the card reader has failed. Try a Scandisk SD card or other popular brand and see if there is any difference in the messages. Otherwise I would say the card reader is faulty.

Chances are you need a driver in your PC compatible with Vista. There are MANY compatibility problems with Vista and special devices such as the Micro Br.

I cannot turn on my Micro BR - its plugged in and has new batteries but still won't work Does this mean it's completely broken or is there some sort of stand by phase that may have initiated itself?


The devices that have battery AND adapter capability OFTEN have a switch that the adapter opens when powered by the adapter. Often this switch contact gets bent and units won
t run on battery, so try it on an adapter... if the adapter works and battery doesn't, this contact whcih is a part of the input power connector has failed.

Just bought Kingston 2GB SD Card for Boss Micro BR but when maching turned on,its frozen on KEEP POWER ON! SONG LOADING!


This is likely a compatibility issue. Turn power off and remove the card and make sure the unit comes back to life.

SD card compatibility can be a problem.

You might want to go to VSPLANET.com as there is a lot of info on forums about recorders.

Micro Br says no card when I try all of my previously working and formatted cards Thanks for your help in advance


Inspect the card connector for BROKEN off pins or damage to the connector where the card goes. Not sure what type card this takes, but pins that get pushed back in on CF cards are NOT that uncommon, especially if card has had an attempt to put in backwards.

Beyond that I am afraid the cause would be unknown.

You MIGHT try formatting a new card... If it won't go, something in the interface has gone bad.

The memory card says unformatted card


Refer to your BR manual for procedure to format the card. Formatting the card in a PC just doesn't cut it.

Look in your index in the manual for "formatting" or "card"...etc.

Micro BR power Adapter


You may have damaged the data on the memory card. If you have no display at all carefully read page 125 of your manual.If it doesn't display with the adapter plugged in try new batteries. If it still doesn't display anything, contact the dealer you bought it from or try contacting Roland. This site should help:http://www.rolandus.com/support/service_centers/
