    Fostex D160 eprom help.

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Hello all. I have recently acquired a D160 multitrack machine and also have a D90 on its way. Both sold as working, but the D90 sold for "spares". The main problem I have is that the D160 comes up with a "No Drive" error message and even after changing it out for a compatible model the error message stays the same. The panel initallises first and states the software is Version 2.12.
    I have opened up the case and it looks like the EPROM chips are both missing? (I am not knowledgeable about this stuff). Can I use the EPROM chips from the D90? Is their a software update available?
    If not can anyone point me in the right direction for a UK supplier?
    Any help or reply would be very much appreciated (I am going crazy searching the web).

    Well after a lot of research, I have the following information.

    1: Fostex EPROM chips can not be swapped between a D90 and a D160.
    2: EPROM chips with the latest software pre-programmed, are still available through the UK distributors.
    3: The D160 was shipped with software either on a flash drive chip OR on EPROMS (check switch on motherboard).

    Hope it helps anyone who is looking for the information.

    Did you manage to get the latest eproms? Which I believe should be version 2.13
