Yes you’re absolutely right so I’m wondering if I have a faulty camera kit here? Camera Kits aren’t expensive items so I’ll order another in a couple of days.

As soon as I select use as Sound Device from the recorder I get the “Not
Enough Power” message which I’ve seen on other devices before.

Well, the way I understand it is that with ios, you con't just select
that and off you go, there are more options under the ios section once
you pressed ok on that. Maybe that's the problem.

I’m doing some tests with the recorder at the moment.
Unfortunately I can’t get the recorder to work as a microphone with the
iPhone or iPad mini.
The battery of the iPad Pro was dead flat so I haven’t ben able to try
though I suspect the results will be the same which is a pity.

I should draw your attention to a few things.
The Pre-Record buffer is only 2 seconds in length.
The buffer may not always work depending on what function of recording
are using, it will not work with the "Countdown Timer" function I
Given that this recorder is priced as low as it is these minor

So, could you figure out how to get pre record switched on or off, and
play back, things like repeat and AB repeat and playback speed?
The manual dos not clearly state button combinations there.

There's no trouble in using the H1N with an IOS device for input and

Thanks dain this is what I always wanted to know. Do you perhaps no
there are other options on that USB screen, and how it will work when
connecting it to ios for sound use.

Okay here’s what you do.
You first need to turn the power on for the H1N recorder and wait
until the recorder is booted.
Then connect the USB cable from the recorder to the computer.
At this point the USB connection screen displays on the recorder.
Here’s where you need to use the 4 keys below the display mentioned
previously so to get to Card Reader press `Limiter key - that’s the
3rd key from the left - and then press Auto level key - that’s the
right most key on the row, the forth. - You should now be able to
the recorder as a USB Card reader.
When finished make sure to “Safely Eject” the H1N from your computer
system in which ever way your computer handles it.
Now going back to the USB screen for a moment.
If you press the Auto Level key twice then you will set the recorder
to USB Sound Device mode.
I’ve tried all this on both a Mac and Windows machine.
Hope this helps.

Hi everyone,

can someone tell me how to get my Mac or PC to recognize my Zoom
as a hard drive?

In terms of nomenclature, I call the horizontal buttons immediately
below the display, from left to right, H1 through H4. I call the
buttons below the Record button, B1 through B4, with B1 and B2 in
the top row and B3 and
B4 on the bottom row.

What key combination do I need to press in order to make either a
Mac or PC recognize the H1N as a hard drive?

Thanks and all the best,
