I used to tape the switches on the back because they were TOO easy to move!
I actually just super glued those into place. I have never had to change those settings.



Better hope the switches don’t get dirty and need to be exercised?! I use tape to cover them so they don’t move.


My input jack is making crackle sounds, I wonder if this is worth it or if I just buy a new A10 or D10.... thoughts?



Get some spray contact cleaner, remove batteries, spray all over a mini plug, then plug in & remove twenty times fast.

What if this leaks into the unit, anything it will hurt?

I almost believe its cracked/loose, not just dirty

There's been a problem with my M10 powering off when I pressed RECORD, so I began using the remote. Yesterday it turned off pressing RECORD on the remote.

I had been suspecting it was a memory card problem because the cards weren't seated properly when inserted, one corner was higher.

Today the M10 would only stay powered on when there was NO card in the slot.

So I stuck a small piece of cardboard in-between the top of the card slot (with a card inside) and the card slot cover, and the M10 turned on and so far is staying on even when using operation buttons.

Probably the spring in the card slot has weakened -- my M10 is ten years old, and I've usually taken the card out when transferring files to my computer for faster download -- so it's had a lot of use.

Use the usb to transfer. Leave the card alone!

Probably do that now -- but its slowliness is killing me!

I spose its a USB connection thing, or are you transferring a lot of data? When I transfer, via usb, it seems to be just as fast as it would be to take the card out, put it in a reader and pull it off of there. Another thing I do is copy the files as opposed to actually moving them. I think that's a little faster and you can always delete them from the m10 pretty quickly.  I also never delete a recording off of any recorder until it is copied both to my pc and to a cdr or dvdr. That's another way of insuring that I don't completely delete something that I want to keep,which I've done in the past way too often.

It is a USB thing and I do sometimes transfer a lot of data at once. The M10 is in a stationary set-up recording a piano, and sometimes the files don't get downloaded for a long time. So it ends up being a multi-GB download when it does happen. Taking it out of the M10 and inserting it directly into the card slot of my computer makes for a very fast transfer/copy to a connected hard drive.

I agree about backups. These files don't get deleted until they've been copied to two separate external hard drives and then a disc backup onto DVD-R or BD-R.

I hope this cardboard thing works. The M10 is a gem and I'd hate to end up only being able to record to the internal memory.

a suggestion there would be to have a laptop right there as part of the setup, it would make it a lot more convenient to transfer and then you wouldn't have to pull the card.

That's true. I might try that. Thanks!

interesting thing last night. I recorded 3 bands m10 showed them as

190526_01,
190526_02,
190526_03

must have ran out of room in whatever folder they were in (I am using the m10 as a mp3 player these days, too), so I ended up with another file in some other folder titled

190526_01 again....

If I rename it as 190526_04, seems to be the order of the show. Is this a typical thing for the m10? I've never had it happen before, so I am a little concerned. And, when it automatically creates a new file like that, is it seamless to the other one that was running at the time?

Mysterious, at least to me.  Input appreciated.

That happens to me when I run out of space on my card and the m10 switches to internal memory (or vice versa). The date will be the same but the file numbers begin again at _01.

I appended the 2 files and it was a seamless match. Gotta be careful though, with 2 files with the same name. SONY! :smash:

You sure do have to be careful!


I would go ahead and rename it with the _4, but MAKE DOUBLE DAMN SURE YOU ARE DOING IT RIGHT and HAVE A BACKUP COPY THAT YOU DON'T DELETE UNTIL YOU ARE SURE.


Here is my Sony-naming file [near] loss story:


I have two M10's, and before I had a 4-channel recorder, they were my go-to recorders for both SBD & AUD sources. Well, one day, I though I'd be all smart, and start and stop both machines at the "exact same time." Of course, I got two files named the same, with file sizes within a megabyte of each other, and file lengths within a second.


I'm pretty sure that this is when/why I started keeping master files in separate sub-folders, sorted by recording deck!!!!

Sucks that these war horses are all falling by the wayside in their old age. I guess Sony planted a time bomb so that they could sell more A10s
