Hi everyone I am new to this forum I'm hoping for some good help. So I just acquired a Fostex mr8 and I was wondering how to set it up. I did some recordings but can't figure out how to turn on the metronome and if I mess up a part how to go back and fix it without redoing the whole track.

You're welcome. Refresh this window, I've edited my post since, to add a video which explains the various functions of the MR8; which will help you some.
It's not an instructional/how-to video, though, so you'll still want to read the manual.

I have the BR-1180CD, I could be wrong but I don't think you can add a CD burner to the unit if it didn't come with one like the BR-1180CD version.
If the BR-1180 has an optical out at the rear as the BR-1180CD has, if you have an interface with the same you may be able to connect the two using a lightpipe which would allow you to transfer your audio to your PC via the interface if it has an optical input.
Another option - if you have a mixer with RCA inputs is to run out of the RCA outputs of the BR-1180 into the stereo return RCA inputs of the mixer then to your interface or direct to your PC if the mixer has a USB send/return.

The image below shows the BR-1180 does have a digital out like the BR-1180CD

I think Ebay may be your friend in this instance. Here's an example. I'm NOT necessarily saying this is the correct drive for your Boss unit, but it gives you a place to start looking.

That looks to me like a replacement for a faulty drive. I would be doubtful about it being useful where there was no original drive installed, but there's no harm in contacting the seller to check.

Here's the CDI-BR-1 upgrade manual. From this, it looks as though the type of CD drive is very specific and a standard PC drive cannot be used. There is an adaptor board and cable that only comes with the original 1800CD unit or with a genuine Boss CDI-BR-1 upgrade.
