20 Most Recent Zoom H4 Handy Recorder Questions & Answers


Zoom H4 Recorder Says, "Card Full!" But it is NOT!

I encounter this error with my 16 gb SD card and Zoom H4n. I try to format the card inside and outside fo the Zoom, use 8 gb and 32 gb instead of 16gb card and, but get the same error. But I find a solution. 1. I format my SD card inside Zoom with builtin utility. (Menu - SD Card - Format) 2. I reinstall Zoom firmware (instruction and download here: http://www.zoom.co.jp/products/h4n/software/ ) 3. I format SD card inside Zoom again. I took a several test and didn't get a "Card Full" error.

Zoom H-4

Ask your dealer, the one you bought it from. They may suggest an easy fix or guide you best on how to get it repaired, or at the very least suggest a place near you to have it repaired. If your dealer doesn't know, ask any Zoom dealer for repair info. Meanwhile, I assume you've checked your battery compartment to make sure the terminal connections are not loose (and of course that you've tried new batteries - :) ). Also, check Menu>Battery to see if alkaline or nickel batteries is checked. Finally, try removing your SD card and re-inserting, (even re-formatting the card, perhaps, but trying merely re-inserting first). But make sure any songs/info on the card are backed up first, because you will lose info if re-formatting the card. (For that matter, you could try a new card.)

If your H4n is in STAMINA mode (Switch in battery compartment) then MODE is not viewable in the MENU. Simply Turn off the STAMINA Switch and restart your H4n (Turn H4n OFF then ON again) Hope that HelpsCheersJaysan

If you are running on battery, remove the batteries. Then re-insert. That will reset your recorder.

Screen says "No Data" when any SD card is inserted. What to do?

I believe that simply means that there is no RECORDED DATA on the card yet.

You may try some recovery software to rescue the files on your handy recorder, here are some for your option.

Photo Video Music Recovery (for Windows)
Photo Video Music Recovery for Mac

Both programs can also recover video and music files.

Note: Before your files are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the recorder in case the original files(your recordings) are overwritten.

Which firmware do you have? It should say on the screen when you turn it on. If it 1.10, or 1.0, you need to update the firmware by going to the Zoom support page:
Directions and firmware download is all there.
If you are already on 2.0 or 2.4, then try reformatting the card with the Zoom. This will delete anything on the card, so backup first!! Good luck.
