    what has happened is the hard drive is too full. the drive needs at least 10 or 15% open space to work. the solution is to back up / download some of your data off the hard drive to create enough space to allow it to operate again.

    There is an MR8 reformatting program available from Fostex that will wipe the drive completely clean. It should work properly after that.

    Alternatively, look for a used 40GB IDE drive on Ebay and put that one in instead of the cluttered one.

    You will need to do three passes, each using the New Song mode (see p70 in the manual). The New Song mode wipes the contents of tracks 7 & 8 before a pass that mixes tracks 1 - 6 to a new song on tracks 7 & 8. You have to use the individual track level and pan controls to determine which of tracks 1 - 6 contribute to track 7 and track 8 in each pass. All the other mixing controls (delay, reverb, mastering, etc) should be off.

    The first pass involves bouncing tracks 1 & 2 only to 7 & 8, track 1 panned hard L and track 2 panned hard R. The levels for tracks 4 - 6 must be at zero. After the bounce, do a stereo convert on 7 & 8. You can then transfer the contents of 7 & 8 to your PC as a stereo track. Once on the PC, split the stereo track to two mono tracks labelled 1 & 2. The stereo conversion process is needed as the Fostex will (stupidly) only transfer stereo tracks.

    Now do the same for tracks 3 & 4 panned L and R, keeping the levels of tracks 1 & 2 at zero this time.

    Finally, do the same for 5 & 6, but the panning and stereo convert are probably unnecessary as the Fostex assumes 5 & 6 are already a stereo pair. You will still need to split them to two mono tracks once in the PC.

    Good luck!
