Unable to transfer recording from File B

I saved a recording in folder B and haven't been able to retrieve it. I have double checked and it is in the recorder but somehow it just doesn't open in the computer. I check forlder B in the conputer and it shows one file but doesn't allow me to open it or listen to it.

    Yes I'm using teh software I normally only record things on A so up until know never had problems. This is the first time I've recorded something in Folder B. I've done what I normally do and all files from A get trnasfer but nothing from B. A bit frustrating.

    Thank you very much for your response. The file is indeed in File B I just can't open it or have access to it. let alone listen to it.

  • galgis Oct 08, 2008

    Yes I am using the Olympus software I've been using it for months always recording things in folder A. No problem whatsoever up until now. For the first time I recorder something in folder B and get the recording in my PC.

    I as well have this problem. If I transfer files from B into A after erasing folder A to make room within the recorder itself I can transfer it and play on computer. This is frustrating because there's going to come a time when I'm not going to be able to do this. PLEASE HELP with solution.

    I tried moving the file from Folder B to A, C, and D, and it still won't transfer.

This is what I already do, but I want a solution to where I don't have to do that. The field of work I'm going into is not going to give me the option of erasing files in folder A to make room for transferring recordings in folder B or C into A so I can download them within the computer as needed.

All files should be set for transfer when using the Olympus software.  There is a way you can check folder B in my computer by locating the program folder where the olympus software resides.  If folder B is empty, the recording could have landed in A, C, or D folder.

Olympus ds 40 can't display recorded voice folders on pc


There are a total of eight folders in the recorder that are in a tree format. Under the “Root” folder
are “Folder A” through “Folder E”, “Audible” and “Music” folders, and recorded or transferred
Language and music data from a computer can be saved as “files”. “Folder A” through “Folder E”
are voice-recording folders, so choose one of these five folders when recording on this recorder.
Up to 200 files can be saved in each folder, and up to two layers can be created within the “Music” folders.

Olmpus Digital Wave Machine Files


In the program folders of your computer is a folder called Olympus. In that folder, there are four folders for audio files. They correspond to the audio folders you have on you voice recorder. Each file is save with a time a date stamped file name. The files should be saved as wavetable file or wav. These files can be played using windows media player and can be emailed under most cases as well provided the file size for the attachment is acceptable to the recipients e-mail address.

Usually what I have to do is link the folders using ITues. Then files can be synched and converted to mpeg3. That way if someone wants to listen to them on an Ipod or any other mp3 player there easy to transport.

Let me know what you find.

Dowloading audio files onto my computer..


I have an Olympus recorder. I don't know if the software is similar but their software has a way of copying the files to folders in the software. These files can then be used in other audio programs such as ITunes if you want to transfer it to your Ipod or audio recording software so that you can drag and drop them into one file.

If you look in the folder where your voice manage software is, is there a folder where the audio files are being stored within the program?

Locked file ?


The folder lock can oly be solved by chosing the option "format" in the sub-menu. But please copy the *.dss - files still resting at your card at your harddisk first.

When the recorder finishes the format procedure, all folders will be unlocked again.

The "Read-Only-Failure" will occur again at recorders with differend user profiles, when you put the switched-off recorder into the docking station first and switch the power button to "on". So avoid this constellation!
