How to transfer files from a zoom h2 recorder to a cd

Updated February 21, 2017

The Zoom H2 is a portable digital recording device. The H2 features four built-in microphones designed to capture a wide stereo recording. The device captures sound and stores it to an SD memory card as an MP3 file. After recording the audio onto the Zoom H2 device, the MP3 files can be accessed by plugging the H2 into a computer's USB port. After transferring the files to a computer hard drive, the files can be burnt to an audio CD.

Press the "Power" button to turn on the Zoom H2. Wait for the unit's display to turn on.

Connect a standard USB patch cable coming out of the Zoom H2's USB output port and into a computer's USB input port.

Press the "Menu" button on the Zoom H2 device, then select "USB" and then "Storage." This will sync the H2 to the computer, and the computer will recognise the H2 as an external device.

Double-click the H2 external device icon on the computer to view its file contents. Drag the MP3 files from the external device and drop them onto the desktop or inside another directory on the hard drive.

Click the "Start" menu and select "All Programs." Click on "Windows Media Player" to launch the media player.

Click the "Burn" tab at the top of the screen. Drag-and-drop the MP3 files from the hard drive and into the Windows Media Player window that says "Drag items here."

Insert a blank CD-R disc into the computer's burner drive. Click the "Start Burn" button in Windows Media Player to begin burning the MP3 files to CD.
