Sonic stage transfer halts at 95% and locks up system


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

I am now stumped. Am I missing something, I wonder I cannot get Sonic stage to transfer files past 95% to my MD MZN707, or MZN510,which I tried to check for a hardware error with different discs, etc.. I looked fully at the forum, and uninstalled SS4.3/ reinstalled Avrin's version but alas I cannot transfer.

A lot of discussion re Win 64 bit but I have a 32 bit version and am still banjaxed. I have tried compatibility modes but these cause more problems.Could any of you kind souls please offer help and advice?

I used SS with XP for many years without huge problems. I also notice the playback of mp3 files via SS is poor quality, scratchy sound,not heard in other player software not sure if this is relevant data.

Thanks

I'll ignore the comment about MP3's for now - the term "MP3" covers such a wide variety of sins it is impossible to have a meaningful discussion without a lot more detail.

However, lets try to deal with the "95%" problem.

What is happening is that the system is unable to write the TOC. "95%" is an arbitrary number which signifies that actual transfer is complete but the disk directory needs to be updated in order that you may retrieve things later. So - what's happening is that your overwrite head is most probably busted.

Here's a question: can you make a recording from line or microphone with either unit (not sure what the 510 has, but the 707 most definitely records from mic, I have done it)? And take the disk out, walk away, and play that disk (in the same or another unit).

If that works, you have some sort of driver problem. W7-32 works just fine. If you went through some gyrations (sounds like you did) it may simply be a matter of cleaning up software left from "partial" installation(s). However, eliminate the hardware problem first, please.

The 707 works fine with thw mic recording, as suggested, so any advice on driver cleaup and reinstall? I have tried uninstalling in the usual way.

If nothing else, start with this post.

After that, it may be necessary to get brutal with old versions of SonicStage.

Well the procedure in the post did the trick. SS working now as well as it ever did on file transfer, thank you very much Stephen.
