Any 3.5" IDE hard drive will do, it doesn't need to be a large one, as the Alesis will only 'see' the space it needs to - google 'standard ML9600 hard drive size' to see, I can't recall offhand.

You don't HAVE to upgrade the OS if the machine is working fine. You WILL have to install it on a new HDD if you install one.

For what it's worth, I could only get the OS to install from a disc I made on a Windows XP PC. Three or four attempts from a Vista machine all failed. Win 7 and 8 are unknown territory for me.

Make certain you have an OS disc BEFORE you replace the HDD.

How to download the OS firmware?

Hi, I'm in the process of restoring a Masterlink, and have just done what you are trying to do. Go to this link:

http://www.alesis.com/masterlink

Read through the materials and then go into "Docs and Downloads" and there you will find the "System Software Update Guide", which explains how to determine which OS version you need based on your serial number, so you can create the ISO disc for the OS you need. I suggest you print it out for easy reference. Then download and unzip the OS files and create your Operating System ISO CD. The instructions are pretty clear so if you're methodical you should have no problems getting up and running soon. Have fun!

Disc failure while to burn a CD on the Alesis Masterlink ML-9600

The Alesis fitted with a standard computer CD drive, there's an online list somewhere of compatible drives. Take the lid off, unscrew the current drive, and replace. It sounds like the drive is faulty. Online instructions all over the place on how to replace these drives in PCs - it's no different in the Alesis

i am not to sure about the different errors on the masterlink but i know it is not much more that the hard drive that can go bad it them.
first try reloading the o.s. this helps sometimes. you can get the latest o.s. from the alesis site.
if the issue persists, change the hard drive.
you can get a good 30 or 40 gig from ebay.

I accidentally deleted a recording on the Masterlink ML-9600.

I realise this problem is years old, but for the benefit of anyone with the same problem -

It depends on whether the track has been deleted from a Playlist, or from the Track Storage Area itself. If it's only been deleted from a Playlist, it will still be on the machine

Scroll beyond the end of any playlist, and you'll find the stored tracks. It's only possible to delete a track permanently by going through a 'This will permanently delete the track. Are you SURE?' prompt, so you can't say you weren't warned....

Alesis Masterlink ML 9600 won't power up.

After reviewing the repair and owners manuals. I have come to the conclusion that there is a short in the power supply board. Your drives should be fine. I don't know off hand how expensive it is to fix in your area. I would say approx $200
