Converting a .voc file to a wav or mp3

You have the Creative labs own compression file there. There are several Programs that can convert this for you and many of them are free. If this is something you will be doing a lot of you might pay for a better designed program. If it is a one time thing go to this link http://www.partnersinrhyme.com/pc/pcConvert.shtml and download a free program to do the converting for you.

Although a lot of people say they can't find a program on there to fix their solution so, instead go to this site.
Down load the program and go from there.
If you are on a mac you can run windows from the program Parallels and then work it in the windows environment.

File conversion on Mac

Your card is probably PC formatted, which means your mac can read it but not write to it. Copy the files to your hard drive and convert from there!

How can I digitize cassette tapes using the Marantz PMD670?

Take a set of RCA Jack cords (4 jacks) and on the tape recorders "out" jacks attach one pair and on the PMD 670's "In" Jacks attach the other pair. Set the tape a few seconds before where you want to record , set your levels to where you want them, start the recorder then start recording with the PMD.

You may need to test record a few seconds to make sure the recording is at the level you want it to be. Plug in a set of headphones to the PMD and listen in from time to time to make sure it's recording OK.

There you go.

Manual reset has killed the Marantz pmd671

Turn off the power... wait about 15 minutes and use the paper clip to push the reset button gently a couple times... it may be stuck

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 [email protected] and they should be able to take care of you.

How to format a new CF Card without getting a

I have this same problem. I have 3 cards. 1 of them my Marantz PMD671 just doesn't like, and produces the error message "you need format on PC". I can format it on PC, and use it normally, but the PMD671 will not have it. The card is a cheapo Dane-elec.
I give up at this point.

Stop button causes PMD671 to freeze-shows mono instead of stereo


Thanks for writing to Fixya.com.

This is a common issue with all Marantz especially over a long period of time like 3 years. I recommend you to take it to Marantz Service .Three years is a long time for electronics. Its ICs are getting weak or gotten weak, hence the problem.

Thank you for contacting Fixya and please accept the solution if it has helped you.

Hi there,

You have 3 dashes because the recorder wont record in the mode you have it set at. setting it at PCM at 48 K or better works fine for us

Ipurchsed a new CFcard 8

Hello and welcome to FixYa.

How to format a CF card

From stop press and hold the MARK/ EDIT button for about 2 seconds to enter Edit mode.

Renumber flashing in the display.

While the display is flashing (5 seconds) press and release the MARK/ EDIT button four more times.

FORMAT flashing in the display.

While FORMAT is flashing (5 seconds) press and release the ENTER button Play/pause.

FORMAT OK? flashing in the display.

The display asks you to confirm that you want to format the CF card. Formatting the CF card will erase all recordings on the card.

While FORMAT OK? is flashing press and release the ENTER button play/pause to confirm. (Or press and release the STOP button to cancel.)

That is how you would format it with the device, or format it with your computer with the use of a card reader, connect it to your machine open my computer or computer from either your desktop or from start menu.

Then right click on the removeable storage device and select format, set it to FAT32.

If the problem remains send me the exact brands and models of your new cards.

If you have any questions, please let me know by adding a comment to this page, I will respond as soon as I get the message.

Your files are probably corrupt. I encounter this problem quite often. You could try to repair with Easy Recovery Professional. I manage to repair my files most of the time
