Formatting the memory (Format Built-In Memory/Format SD Card)

You can format either the built-in memory of your linear PCM recorder or the microSD card. Formatting the built-in memory will delete all of the stored data and restore the original folder structure at your purchase.

  1. While recording or playback is on standby, select [ Settings] - [Common Settings] - [Reset/Format] - [Format Built-In Memory] or [Format SD Card] from the HOME menu, and then press.

    [Delete All Data?] appears.

  2. Pressorto select [Yes], and then press.
    [Please Wait] appears and the built-in memory will be formatted.
  3. Press and hold BACK/HOME to return to the HOME menu.
    To return to the screen before you displayed the HOME menu, press STOP.


  • Be sure to use your linear PCM recorder, not a computer, to format the microSD card that you intend to use on the linear PCM recorder.

  • Be aware that formatting the built-in memory will delete all of the stored data, including protected files and Sound Organizer 2, and you will not be able to restore anything after the formatting process.


  • To cancel the formatting process, select [No] in step 2.
