2. I like to record nature and leave my recorder outside for two days or more.


So what is it you record then? The singing birds? What purpose does it have?

Don't get me wrong, I'm not mocking you or disrespecting you. I'm genuinly interested in what's so interesting about recording nature.

Check out this video:

and start at 24:24 to get a little bit of an idea why.

My searches came up with some users complaining that their cable didn't work and the answer was "Are you using a data transfer cable?" Charging cables apparently will not work.


hmm, that's annoying. is there anyone here who owns a ps4 and an r-07 who's tried using the cable supplied for charging a ps4 controller to transfer files from an r-07? the ps4 controller charging cable appears to be usb-a to micro-usb-b, but that issue with charging cables not working has me concerned. my r-07 arrives weds, so i'll be able to try it then, but i'm just trying to figure out if i need to buy a 'data transfer cable' specifically.

I bought a usb-3 card reader on ebay for a couple of bucks.
Problem solved.

Thank you, that sounds reasonable  :)

I'm currently sat at work with two phones on my desk, my Samsung S9 and a work iPhone. The Samsung is what I use to connect to my R-07.

Out of curiosity I have just retrieved my R-07 from my briefcase, switched it on, and then tried to connect my iPhone to it without going in the R-07. I couldn't, and neither did the R-07 appear a visible device.

I've tried the DR-2d and I just don't like it as much as the M10. I am bummed Sony stopped making this. I've been going through the thread on this one, but maybe someone who has used this could tell me if they like this or the M10 better? If you've used both.

Right there with ya brotha.  The M10 is a wonderful recorder.  I can only say, I can't wait to see what Sony does next.  I have a couple of M10's, but I also have an Edirol (Roland) R-09HR that I love.  That machine is by far the best "stealth" deck I've ever used.  The R-07 is not a good predecessor to that, but may very well be a good machine, I don't know.  Ask questions here, there are a lot of people checking them out (they're super cheap!).  Have fun.

Not trying to hijack the thread, but has sony made any sort of announcement they would be making something like the M10? I remember hearing that they weren't going to make another one because the market isn't there for it?

The M10 had the same feel as their DAT machines and that's why I loved it. The first time I recorded with it, I was able to use it like my D8, no problem.

It is kind of odd, because I've seen M10s in use in the field by lots of other folks as well (journalists, in particular), so I'm not quite sure why they don't think there's a market. Though that could always be code for "We're Sony, we have bigger fish to fry."

Yes, the M10 operates a lot like the DATs...
I haven't heard anything either way, but Sony has always been a major player in the portable market, so I'd hate to think they'd give that up.

fwiw, the R-07 is on sale now at B&H for $199.99 ($30 off)...haven't checked other websites. I was quite annoyed by this initially, as I bought one from B&H just 2 weeks ago at full price, but I just politely asked for a post-sale price adjustment via B&H live chat and was given one immediately no questions asked.

Looks like that deal is not exclusive to B&H.  Sweetwater, Adorama, etc also currently have it for $199.99.  I know some people are anti-B&H, so maybe this is relevant for them (though I don't know if any of those people are on this forum).

Thanks for the heads up.

Got a 10% off coupon code for flea-bay, in email, says for selected sellers.  JUSTSAVE10  That's $20 more off, worth checking out if you're looking to buy.  That's how I grabbed my R-07 a few weeks ago, new in sealed box.  Every penny helps.
