My friend jjfmi is having a problem (read: diaster) with the hard drive in his Fostex VF-16 digital audio recorder: it no longer seems to want to work. He can replace it with another drive that does work, so the problem appears to be with the original drive. Does anyone have any suggestions or expertise with this equipment? Or maybe a suggestion applicable to hard drives in general that might work here? See his post from last night about it.
This might not be such the problem, but the drive holds the last two John Finan albums, plus almost half of my Another Road, and assorted other tracks for other people… not to mention over half of his unreleased new album. That last bit is the killer.
