The voice recorder is in read only status - you will need to format the device to remove the lock (read only). Go to menu - to submenu and then run the format option. make sure all files have been downloaded as once device is formatted all files will be permanently deleted

    Thank you so much Babs!!! Heh, I called "tech support" and THEIR "solution" was to send it to the only American Authorized Dealer to have it "repaired" for close to $30! Pffff ... LOVE fixya.com with a passion!! Again, thank you so much for your help! Ms. Edward T. Head

The recorder should be formatted only by using the internal FORMAT function found in the recorder’s Menu. Formatting using the computer may corrupt system files needed to run the recorder, so computer formatting is not recommended.
