    I had a file on my DS-660 which was yet to be downloaded. The record button was accidently hit and recorded over the file. I am wondering if there is any type of file recovery software I can run to retrieve the original recording

  • rebeccajryan Oct 13, 2008

    It is not a PDA - it is a handheld digital recorder Olympus DS-660

  • rebeccajryan Oct 13, 2008

    Somehow my problem has been listed under PDAs when it really deals with a DS-660 Olympus Disgital Voice Recorder

  • rebeccajryan Oct 13, 2008

    there is no way I can run the recorder through some type of file recovery system?

I think it is common knowledge that if you delete things from a processor of any sort there is still residual info left behind. Recovery software is not cheap and is used mainly by cyber crime investigators or seriously professional IT techs. Take your recorder to your local computer repair service center(not geek squad) and see if they can flash the memory for traces of your memory. This will tell the tech if any overwritten files have been backed in the units HIMEM or may actually still be there its just not viewable or accessible by a user. Some say if you truly want to delete all traces of deleted data physically destroy the unit, motherboard, bios, dos, harddrive, RAM. Crush it, electrocute and then pour gas on it and burn it, LOL. Anyway, it doesn't cost much for them to check it out.

Now the file cannot be retrieved but in future the best option will be to lock your saved files. this is the feature available in your DS-660. In such cases if your files is locked you will have to enter password to unlock and then overwrite the file.

Thanks

What file was it? If the file has been removed or replaced there is basically nothing that can be done. Is the unit working correctly?
Thanks,
Lee

    Yes I know the unit is not a PDA, That wasn't one of my questions but thank you for the fast response. Like I said you can not recover it is best to take it as learning lesson so the mistake is not repeated in the future. If you still need assistance please let me know. Please take a moment to reconsider your original rating and accept and re-rate my solution accordingly.
    Thanks,

So you want to record music from Pandora, then burn the files into CD, right?
want-record-music-from-pandora-oxaxc0rwhkhzilrwacqreyis-4-0.jpg First of all, in order to grab audio files from Pandora, you may need a music recorder on your computer.

Installed new battery. Everything working perfectly except for the recording capability of voice memo. Playback of existing files is fine, but I cannot record a new voice memo file.


Re-open the case and make doubly sure that the tiny connections to both the mic and the record button are firmly connected and not broken. Lots of very small and delicate connections in very tight quarters in a unit that was not designed to be user serviceable.

Recorded on Olympus DS-2300 and do not have the disc to download and listen recording on my laptop. How can I do this? Thanks.


Not used the DS-2300, but if the design is anything like as sensible as the one on my old WS-200 (and Olympus are usually pretty good about this sort of thing), you may not need any sort of disk at all.

Try plugging the device into a USB port on your laptop (the DS-2300 should come with a USB cable). Let it settle for a couple of minutes, then open "My Computer".

With any luck, the DS2300 should appear there as a new removable disk drive, from which you can copy the files onto your hard drive, or listen to them using (eg) Windows Media Player.

How to search for files in the P1i according to date


In the file manager there are two tabs. The one on the left is for the phone memory and the one on the right for the memory card. Select the video folder and then the camera folder. By default they should be stored there (unless you have changed the camera settings!)

The slide switch on my Olympus DS-4000 digital dictation recorder is too sensitive, and often goes to the "Record" position when it should be "Off." Any suggestions in how to correct...


The slide switch on your Olympus DS-4000 probably needs to be replaced. You can ship it to PCDictate.com to have your Olympus DS-4000 repaired. The repair will most likely run around $100,

However, my suggestion is that you upgrade to the Olympus DS-5000 digital voice recorder, the replacement for the DS-4000. It is a substantial upgrade and you will not regret it.

If you want to consider another brand, Philips has some great digital voice recorders. My favorite models are the Philips LFH-9600 and Philips LFH-9500 professional digital voice recorder.

The best place to purchase professional digital voice recorders is PCDictate.com. Your recorder will be shipped the same day your order and shipping is free.

How do you edit a recording on an Olympus DS-30 dictatation machine. All I want to do is record over what I have dictated but the machine just creates a new file everytime I press the record button again....


Unfortunately with this recorder it is not possible to edit over a previously recorded file. Each time you hit record and then stop it will create a new file each time. That's the way the recorder is designed. If you need to be able to stay within the same file you may want to check out the DS-2300 or the DS-2400 as it has a NEW button on it that allows you to stay within the same file until you press NEW to start a new file.

How to convert audio in notes to wav?


This was a fun project. Here's how I did it. You'll need to download a freeware audio editor named Audacity. I did this on a Mac, but it's cross-platform, and I'm assuming the menus are the same for Windows. http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ Then. (1) Copy .pwi (Note) file to PC (2) Open Audacity (3) Get the Note audio into Audacity by: Project menu Import as raw data (4) Select all of the audio by clicking below its file name at left of the graphic of the file (5) Click on dropdown menu (arrow next to file name) Set Rate to 11025 Hz (6) Convert to WAV by: File menu Export as wav
