Hi, I did some audio tests this morning and when I tried to import audio from the recorder to my macbook i couldn't see a thing. However files play perfectly on the recorder. But when I connect it to the computer via usb or insert memory card into computer the folder is just empty. I did some research on the web and turns out Apple creates some sort of indexing for everything, called spotlight-v100. Recorder starts to write all the files to that folder by default, the problem is that it is INVISIBLE! I'm a little bit disappointed in Marantz now, if they know about this issue why not make some sort of program that will import files. :( Who knows. 

 

Can PLEASE somebody tell me how to import audio from recorder to the macbook. Thanks a lot .

I forget the command, but look up on the web,  a "Terminal" command that will reveal hidden folders. I hope that helps. What did Marantz say? I have been thinking of purchasing one of their recorders for a while now. Do you have a mark I or mark II?

I cannot find that command online, please post it if you find it. Will be useful for a lot of people who use Marantz. Thanks.
