    "when the device is plugged into the computer, you should be able to see the contents of the drive... you should see folders. if the folders are not there then copy the folders back to the device after deleting whatever is on the device"


    the problem is that there are "no folders" on the device, the 'get info' shows virtually empty but I can't transfer the folders as it thinks it "full"  ... any idea how to clear the full and or how to transfer the files? pipitita

    you will need to format the recorder through the computer, then put the folders back on there

The recorder is not provided with any installation software. It is considered a plug and play device and should connect to Windows XP or Windows Vista and display as a removable disk drive. You can then copy and paste the files from that drive to your hard drive. The files will play using Winodws Media Player.

Problems caused by "improper device removal"


the recorder has .dat files in each folder and must not be deleted. if you still have them on your computer, then you can transfer back to the recorder and the recorder should work fine

Ws 200s deleted files but still full


I had the same problem. I downloaded the instruction pamphlet at http://www.olympus.co.jp/en/support/imsg/vtrek/download/manual/ws/man_ws100_ws200s.pdf and reformatted the recorder. It seems to work fine now.

Formatting the Recorder (FORMAT)
If you format the recorder, all function settings will return to their defaults.
All files stored in the recorder will be deleted.
If you have important files that you want to save, connect the recorder to a computer and
transfer those files from the recorder to the computer before formatting the device.
1 Press the MENU button.
2 Press the FF or REW button to choose “FORMAT”.
3 When the PLAY button is pressed, “nO” is displayed.
4 Press FF or REW to select “yES”, and press the
PLAY button.
After “ARE yOU SURE” is displayed, “nO” will be displayed.
5 Press FF or REW to select “yES”, and press the
PLAY button.
“DONE” displays when formatting ends.
s It may take up to several tens of seconds to finish the initialization. Do not remove the battery or detach
the battery compartment from the recorder during that time. Otherwise data may be damaged.
s Never format the recorder from a PC.
s When the recorder is formatted, all the stored data, including locked files, are erased.

Recording Time


I have one of these recorders, I actually have 4 or 5, since discontinued I believe, and one is stuck at 43 min remaining.

I think that problems start when you remove the battery while
the recorder is / was in the process of recording (or in play mode) I now press stop while recording before opening the battery case to switch a battery
