Device won't Record

My digital voice recorder (Olympus, model DS-2) won't record, replaced batteries and turned recorder back on and when I hit record all I get is a few short beeps and the message "read only" comes up on the led screen....please help, I am a reporter for a local paper and need to use my recorder. Also, is there any way to recover a lost file?? After I replaced the batteries I lost the file (interview) I was working on....any help for that?? Please I need a solution as soon as someone can get me one as I have a deadline with these stories.

I have had the chips become corrupt. It honestly has not happened much but It has happened. I have about 100 of these devices being used all day long, and I get about one per year. Try calling (800) 622-6372 for Olympus America. They have never helped me in this situation ( I feel I know more about the device than they do ) but it is worth a try.

Olympus ds-330 will not download. I have the right drivers and i changed the usb cable thinking that might solve the problem. I cannot download the device. It says power surge exceeds limit. can you please...


The dictation device port where the cable inputs into the machine is not working. There is no way to fix this problem with spending some money. When this happens, you need to find a compaticord at RadioShack and download directly into the computer with a recording software to record the voice files. Or you can purchase a new dictation device. I hope this helps.

I have an Olympus WS-311M but cant record after playing back file


Unfortunately that is not possible with this recorder to be able to replay a part of a recording and record over it. If you pause it will just allow you to continue from the point where the device was stopped. You might want to check out the DS-2300 or the DS-2400 model recorders as those devices have the ability to do what you are asking.

Recording a Phone Conversation


Olympus makes a device that allows you to record telephone conversations without having to hook up anything to the actual telephone. It is called a TP-7. It connects one end to the voice recorder in the mic jack and the other end is an ear bud microphone so that you are able to record the person who you are speaking to on the telephone so that the voice recorder captures both sides of the conversation.
go to emporium.olympus.com click on the link for voice recorders select your voice recorder and then look for the TP-7.
