After exporting a WAV file from Olympus' desktop software, I have tried several times to import import this file either into Audacity for editing or burn this file onto a CD for sharing. The raw data is junk to Audacity and burning the file to CD isn't allowed.
I spoke with a friend who has the same problem. What gives?
The only way I have found to convert the files is to use Nero or ITunes. Those are the only two methods I've found to read the file. ITunes can both burn them to an audio cd and convert the file to mp3.

You should be able to save you favorites to a CD. Try using the Import/Export Wizard again but, this time, save them to your desktop (don't try to export them directly to the CD).
I assume that you're using Internet Explorer. Open your Web browser then click File. Next, click Import and Export. This time when you get to the part where you choose a location to import the file, choose Desktop. Just click browse, when the window opens click Desktop then save.
After you have exported the file to your desktop, you should find a file on your desktop called bookmarks.htm. Next, copy (or send) this file to the blank CD. Once that's done, open the CD to see if the file was copied.
The recordings simply reside on your pc, but not in the "Digital Wave Player" software. The software is merely there to let you play the recordings, probably because they are not in a native Windows format.
If the recordings are "Wave, .wav" files as suggested by the software, then simply locate the files you want to put on disc... I am guessing you want to burn on cd.
Then, use a burning program such as Nero to add these files and burn to disc.
If you don't have Nero, then you would need to figure out what type of burning software your machine has installed and go from there.
Use Sound recorder that is included on Windows XP it gives the easiest conversion option for .WAV files.
Converting the File Properties
1. Left click Start, Programs, Accessories, Entertainment, Sound Recorder. If you
intend to do this procedure often it is recommended to drag the Sound Recorder shortcut
icon onto your Desktop for convenience.
2. In the Sound Recorder box click on File> Open
3. In the Look In field locate and select your file. Click Open.
4. The Sound Recorder box is back. Click File> Save As.
5. In the Save As box click Change… There are all the options listed that you can change and the bit rate is one of the options.
I told you, the first software was wrong was for mp3 , use wavelab or sound forge. They can manage Wav files in saving. All you have to do is open file and save as or export. You do not need to use any other options.
Forget about soundwave, I don't know if it saves 16 bit Wav or mp3.use Wavelab it is easier just open the files and do save as and chose format 16 bit. You can do the same with soundforge. Whatever software you use , you use just (File button on top left)command open and save as or export, and when saving you set 16 bit wav. It is not to difficult. Some of this software has many feature use solo basic file open save as or export
maybe, you got those wav. files copy controlled. check out the relevant preferences from the voice recorder menus. if this solution doesn't work, simply convert the files into mp3, then convert them into wav. again. I hope this could help..
In reading and working with the unit, I have learned that the file transfer is for backup only. If you want to manipulate the file they have to be transferred individually via your sound card or an interface.
