    I have a Boss BR900 and it saves everything to compact flash. So when I pull the card and put into my flash adapter on my Mac and it opens in my Mac's files it says' Roland BR900 and shows all these folders but when you try and open a folder it says the program needed to open is not available.

    USB direct from the Boss to my MacBook works great for transfer but I want to leave the Boss unit at work and my MacBook at home.
    My question is, if I leave the Boss BR900 at work and record something and pull the card and take it home the MacBook will open the card but can't read the individual files on the card I guess because of Roland's file system.
    What do I need to do to get my MacBook to open and read all the Roland files? I guess the Roland doesn't save the info as mp3 to the card?
    Is this impossible with the compact flash card?
    I'm a newbie at this part...
    Anybody help?
    thanks
