SD card problem
« on: September 18, 2018, 02:14:39 PM »
I can't get my laptop to recognize this sd card. It will recognize others. I tried a different laptop same problem. If the card is in my r44 the files show and play but I can't seems to get it to synch through usb to computer. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

It’s odd that it plays ok on the R-44 but the laptops won’t recognize the files.

I’m at work so don’t have the details, but I’m pretty sure the R-44 has a menu option to “repair” the WAV files. I know the R-09 does this if there is some file issue (for example, if power is lost during recording). Repairing the file should not be confused with formatting the card, which will of course erase everything. So don’t choose the format option!

If it were a problem with the card reader in the laptop then a different laptop would work. Seems unlikely the second laptop has the same problem as the first.

That is odd.  I assume you can download from R-44 to your laptop, instead of using a card reader.  Once you have the files safely tucked away and saved, you could then try reformatting the card and see whether that makes a difference in its usability.

Is the recording important? Go old-school and do a real-time deck to deck transfer 1st!  With the R44 you can even make that a digital (2ch) transfer if you have access to another recorder with SPDIF input.  If not go analog out>in.

Then you can futz around with the SD card without fear of losing the recording.  If the "repair" file option on the recorder isn't there or doesn't pan out, try running chkdsk /f on it, it usually does it for me.

I can't get the r44 to connect to my laptop it tries to connect but never does. I do have the r44 and a pmd660. Is there a way to connect the 2 for a transfer? I also have a dr2d.

I don't think the pmd660 has a digital in (never used one personally), but if it does use that to connect the machines.  If not go R44 RCA analog out > 660 line in or DR2d line in.

Pretty simple if its a straight 2ch to 2ch transfer. Connect the machines, set recording levels, press record on the receiving recorder, press play on the R44.. wait for the entire length of the recording... hit stop. 

If you have 4 channels recorded on the R44 you can do a mixdown to 2ch within the R44 as long as you are okay with the hard-panned outputs (ch's 1&3>L, ch's 2&4>R), and can even add a touch of EQ or compression sweetening via the R44's playback effects if you like.

Alternately you could transfer ch1/2, go back and transfer ch3/4 separately, then import them into your editing software for mixing. But in that scenario you'll need to re-sync the two resulting stereo files in your editing software.

It is a 2 channel recording. Thanks for the advice I will give it a shot.
