    I have followed the standard procedure in the Marantz manual already. There is something else wrong.
    Thanks

Remove batteries for a couple of minutes to reset and try again.
The PMD670 can record using three methods two
of which are compression algorithms: PCM, MP3,
and MP2.
PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) is
uncompressed. These are high quality audio
files used in the recording industry. For example,
for recording CD quality music. PMD
Edit and other professional level computer
applications are available for computer processing
of PCM files.
MP3 (MPEG1 Layer III) is highly compressed,
and creates relatively small files that are commonly
used to transfer files on the internet.
MP2 (MPEG1 Layer II) is a compressed file
format that is commonly used in broadcasting.
MP2 audio is a higher quality than MP3. This is
especially useful when lower bitrates are used.
If you are a news reporter you will probably
want to record in MP2 format using the .bwf
extension.

    The recording type can be stereo (two channels
    of recording) mono (one channel of recording) or
    digital. This is set by your choice of input device
    and input channel choice.

    Sample Frequency
    Sample frequency is measured in kHz (kilo
    Hertz). The sample frequency is the number of
    samples of the audio wave(s) per second. For
    example, the PMD670 can record PCM at 48 kHz
    that is 48,000 samples per second

Dear Sir/madam,

1.3 Synchronization of video decoder registers
There are two types of video decoder register: synchronized and unsynchronized.
• Synchronized registers only change value in response to an internal event, either DSYNC or VSYNC, depending on
the register. These registers are double-banked; during the write cycle the new value is loaded into a master
register, and on the occurrence of the synchronizing event this value is loaded into a slave register, at which time
the new value is available to the circuit. If a synchronized register is read, the value returned is that held in the
master register.
• Unsynchronized registers change their value immediately they are written to.
Some registers are non synchronized registers with edge triggered write (on end of write cycle). This is to avoid glitches
on internal signals during write cycles.


thanks
good luck

We only get sound out of one side of the headset. How do I correct that problem??


If you are using a stereo headset on a sony tape transcriber, you will only get sound on one side. You will either need a mono headset or pick up a stereo to mono adapter at Radio Shack.

How can I transfer recordings from S725 to my pc. I have windows XP


You will need to get a 2.5mm mono to 3.5mm stereo adaptor from somebody like Maplin.
The 2.5mm end of this needs to plug into your earphone jack (mono) on your S725.
Get a ready made cable with a 3.5mm stereo plug on both ends.
Put one of these plugs into your 2.5mm mono to 3.5mm stereo adaptor.
Put the other plug of this cable into the AUX input of your PC.
If you do not see an AUX 3.5mm input, look in or around the area where you would normally
plug your headset. Try checking the manual that came with your PC. Some PCs do not have "AUX" marked on the 3.5mm socket.
Be careful not to have the volume level of the S725 too high as you are testing your setup.
You might damage the Mic input of your PC if you blast too high a level at it.

Next you will need some software like Audacity (Free) to record your tapes.

Have fun but be careful if you are not sure about the connections.
Hope this helps.

File import in 4-track mode impossible


Convert the audio to Mono WAV (16Bit, 44.1KHz). This can be done by using Cubase(Hope you got Cubase LE with Zoom). In an empty project import the audio, then mark the whole track using the Draw tool and then got to File->Export. Here select the above options and export. Import this file into Zoom H4 either by copying directly into the memory card or through connecting the Zoom to computer ( I copy it directly into the memory card's STEREO folder). Now if you import it to any project, it will appear there. You can now use Zoom H4 as a Karaoke device!! Anyway, sad that Zoom H4 doesn't support stereo tracks in the 4Track mode.

The headset you are using is a stereo headset. This unit uses a mono headset. Look at the end of the headset. If there is 2 black rings, it is stereo. You can get a stereo to mono adapter at Radio Shack for about $2.50.

This is suppose to hold hours of recording time and mine only holds a few minutes. How do I increase the time?????


Two things to try: make sure you have a big enough memory card for the intended format and recording time. I suspect you are trying to use the 16MB Compact Flash card that came in the box. A 1GB card will record much longer than the battery life in the Microtrack 24/96, even when recording 24-bit stereo in WAV format. If you have a smaller card, and want long recording times, use an MP3 format. Using the MP3 encoder, monophonic recording, 128K bits/sec, 44.1K samples/sec, you should be able to record over 16hrs of audio on a 1GB memory card. Same card, WAV encoder, 44.1K samples/sec, stereo, 24-bit audio will produce only a little over one hour of recording time. With the 64MB card that came with the recorder, the most you can record using WAV encoding, 24-bit audio, 44.1K samples/sec, is a little less than 4 minutes. With 16-bit audio about 6 min, and with mono and 16-bit audio about 12 min. With WAV, 24-bit audio, mono recording yields 7:52.
