So, my Boss BR800 Recorder won't connect to my computer.

It won't pick up the USB lead and turn on using it, but will run on it's batteries and the plug.

Any suggestions?

Try the Port with another USB device and see if it works. If so then i'd recommend try another USB cable.

Does the connection work if you aren't using it as the power source as well? It may be that the unit is only designed to use USB for data, not power.

Also, is it a standard USB lead that you can test on another piece of equipment (eg mobile phone)? It could just be a dodgy cable.

No it's used as power as well, I was using it yesterday for power.

And no, but the USB port is working on other stuff, so I'm praying it's a dodgy lead

If it was working yesterday and it isn't today, a dodgy cable definitely sounds like the most obvious answer.

That's what I'm hoping.
I just hope it didn't fall or get knocked or something while I was out today.

BR800 manual, trouble shooting...

why the usb won't power the recorder??


Is sufficient power being supplied to your computer or USB hub?

The connection cannot be established if insufficient power is being supplied to the
BR-800. Make sure that none of the following cases apply.

• If you’re using a notebook computer that’s running on its battery, operation may
be unstable in the case of some computers. In this case, connect an AC adaptor to
your computer.
• The power management settings of your computer may be limiting the power that
is supplied to USB. Check the settings on your computer.
• In some cases, the BR-800 cannot be used with bus-powered hubs (USB hubs that
do not contain a power supply). Please use a self-powered hub (a hub that
contains a power supply
