Why are my files missing from the H1 Zoom interface but present on SD?
So I am using the H1 Zoom to record interviews that I am carrying out as part of a research project. I've conducted 3 interviews so far and will be conducting many more in the coming weeks and months. As I record each new interview, I just hit record and the file becomes file 2 thentthe next becomes file 3 and so on.
Last night when up loading interview number three to my laptop I decided to changed the file names to something more identifiable.
Today, when I went to play back the last night's interview on the H1 Zoom, it was no longer there. In fact, none of the files were.
The strange thing is that when I plug the H1 Zoom into my laptop via USB and go to view files, they are still there with the new names I gave them!
So I'm at a loss to understand what exactly has happened and while I haven't lost anything, I'd still like to know what I did or what happened.
Also, while here. I'm recording on MP3 so far at 128. I'm not overly concerned about sound quality, just need it to be clearly audible for the purpose of transcribing. Is this an okay setting?
Another thing that mystifies me is that the time remaining never seems to change and stays at 99:99:59 at all bit rates with the exception of 48 where it is less?
Thanks in advance for help forthcoming. As I'm sure is evident, I am very much an amateur in the area of sound recording.
Is this a good question?
