Question about Olympus WS-300M Digital Voice Recorder

1 Answer

Won't turn on

The battery is new and even when I plug it on to my comp it wont open the files, doesn't even appear on My Computer file. It worked just fine both days before but I noticed that it just stopped working. Its not on hold, and its at least a bit over a year old. I have tried almost everything except whacking it, shocking it and dissecting it. I don't put it near anything that can break it, when its in my bag its in a pocket for my pen drives.

    It's hardly going to be a battery problem if it doesn't even work when you plug it into the computer. I have the same problem - It was just over a year old - it worked the week before and just stopped working out of the blue - I keep it in a protective case and had had no previous problems - the thing is with technology having moved on so much this recorder is half the price to buy new now and is probably cheaper to replace than to repair - I am very disappointed with its longevity as it cost over £100 new but now you can but it new on Amazon now for about £58. it is a shame as it was a great little recorder.

Card has photos but doesn't download anymore


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Cannot install nothing happens when I plug it in to my computer to retrieve my pictures


You declined to specify the make and model of your camera, so I'm assuming it uses a memory card of some type. If it doesn't, please reply to this post and specify the make and model.

wma files won't be read, only mp3 files, in my experience. My 512 mb SD card works, but it won't read my 8 gb SDHC card. I suspect it can't manage SDHC (high capacity) cards. I haven't tested yet, because as it turns out, neither can my computer... I think I'll fall back to a flash drive.
