Introduction
<Note>
There is the possibility of damaging the hard disk when
transporting the recorder. Before transporting the recorder to our service department for the installation of
the Ether Card, remove the hard disk from the recorder.
Be sure to keep the removed hard disk carefully.
Thank you very much for purchasing the Fostex
product.
The Model 8360 is an ether card dedicated for the
D2424/D2424LV digital multitrack recorder.
By installing the 8360 to the recorder, it can be
used as an "FTP (File Transfer Protocol) server".
If you connect the recorder which is equipped with
the ether card to a personal computer using a LAN
cable, you can transfer audio files between the recorder and personal computer over the TCP/IP.
To transfer file data, an appropriate FTP client application must be used.
FTP client applications
Currently we confirm that the following FTP client
applications can be used with the Model 8360.
• for Windows: WS-FTP (shareware)
• for Macintosh: Fetch (shareware)
Installing the ether card
<Note>
The ether card should be installed into the recorder
at a Fostex service station. Do not try to install the
card by yourself. Ask your local Fostex dealer for
the installation after purchasing the Model 8360.
We confirm that the Windows FTP Explorer cannot be
used with the Model 8360.
<Note>
By installing the ether card to the D2424/D2424LV, the
"TCP/IP setting" menu is added to the setup mode on the
recorder.
2
Connecting to a personal computer
There are two types for connecting the recorder to a personal computer using the LAN cable; one to one
connection and LAN connection. The following describes how to make connection for each type.
One to one connection
To connect the recorder to a personal computer on a "one to one" basis, use a "cross cable of category 5 or
higher" for connection between the recorder and a personal computer, as shown below.
To use the ether card as an FTP server, see "TCP/IP setting (recorder's initial setting)" and "Personal computer setting" described later.

Connection to an existing LAN
To connect the recorder to an existing LAN, use a "straight cable of category 5 or higher" for connection
between the recorder and a hub, as shown below.
<Note>
When connecting the recorder to an existing LAN, set the IP address and subnet mask correctly. Otherwise, whole LAN system may have a trouble. Before setting the IP address and subnet mask, consult the
network administrator. To use the ether card as an FTP server, see "TCP/IP setting (recorder's initial
setting)" and "Personal computer setting" described later.

Transferring files
<Files shown on the personal computer monitor>
On the personal computer monitor, you can see the file configuration of the recorder in the FTP application window. In
the following example, programs 1 and 2 are recorded onto
the recorder. (Note that, depending on the FTP application,
the appearance is different.)
After making all necessary settings described earlier, make the following setting for the FTP application you use before opening the connection to transfer files.
[program 1 contents]
Program name: AAA
Data is recorded on tracks
1 through 4.
[If you use WS-FTP]
From "ASCII", "Binary" and "Auto" shown in the center of the
window, select "Binary" or "Auto".
[If you use Fetch]
[program 2 contents]
Program name: BBB
Data is recorded on tracks
1 through 16.
Set "Mode" to "Auto" and "Type" to "Auto".
When you store a file to the D2424/D2424LV, set the "PutFile"
dialog to "RawData".
Getting a file from the recorder
1. Log in to the D2424/D2424LV from the personal computer
via the network.
2. Select the program folder in which the file to be acquired
belongs to.
the uppermost directory
/AAA_01
/AAA_01/tr01.wav
/AAA_01/tr02.wav
• "/" is shown on the icon
of the uppermost directory.
/AAA_01/tr03.wav
• Each program corresponds
to each folder. The folder
name is shown as "(program
name)_(program number)".
/AAA_01/tr04.wav
• Each track in the program
is shown as "tr (track
number).wav".
3. Set the transfer mode of the FTP application to "Binary" (or
"Auto", if available).
"/"
/BBB_02
/BBB_02/tr01.wav
/BBB_02/tr02.wav
• The permission of an
existing file or folder is set
to "read-only".
Note: Do not select "ASCII" or "EBCDIC" for the transfer mode.
4. Get the desired track file(s).
/BBB_02/tr16.wav
5. Log out from the D2424/D2424LV.

Putting files to the recorder
Notes on transferring files
1. A file name must be "tr (track number).wav". Other file
names cannot be accepted.
1. Log in to the D2424/D2424LV from the personal computer
via the network.
2. Only a mono-track, 16/24-bit, 96/88.2/48/44.1-kHz WAV
file can be transferred (for both direction).
2. Select the program folder to which you are going to put the
file.
3. If a track WAV file, which has the different quantization bit
size from the recorder's hard disk format, is sent to the
recorder from a personal computer using FTP, it is not
accepted. For example, you cannot store 24-bit file data to a
16-bit formatted hard disk on the recorder using FTP.
If you want to put the file to a new program, create a new
folder. Specify only a program name as the folder name.
You do not need to specify a program number. When you
create a folder to which only the program name is specified,
the recorder automatically adds the program number to the
name (you cannot specify a desired program number).
4. If a track WAV file, whose Fs is different from the track data
already stored on the recorder's hard disk, is sent to the
recorder from a personal computer using FTP, the file is
stored with the original Fs. Therefore, when the program is
played back, only the associated track is played back as if it
is pitch-controlled. For example, if you store 48-kHz data
for track 16 ("tr16.wav") to an existing program with
44.1-kHz track data, track 16 is stored with 48-kHz data.
Functions of the FTP application
Functions of the recorder
Creates the "CCC" folder.
By updating the FTP application
window in which the folder contents are shown, the newly created folder "CCC_03" appears.
Creates a new program "CCC".
A program number is
assigned (for example,
"03" is assigned).
5. If the combination of the program name which is set as the
folder name and program number does not match the data
stored in the recorder, you cannot store the file. In such a
case, update the personal computer monitor window which
shows the folder contents of the FTP application, then carry
out the store operation again.
<Example of creating a new folder>
6. Because the permission of existing track files on the recorder
is read-only, you cannot overwrite the file. Each track data
in a program is stored as an individual WAV file, therefore,
you can store only a WAV file of the track whose WAV file
does not exist on the recorder. For example, if WAV files for
tracks 1 through 10 on the program are stored, you can
store the track 11 WAV file ("tr11.wav.").
3. Set the transfer mode of the FTP application to "Binary" (or
"Auto").
4. Put the desired track file(s) to the recorder.
5. Log out from the D2424/D2424LV.
