Question about Olympus WS-311M Digital Voice Recorder

1 Answer

Decrease in Memory

I recorded about 6 hrs worth of material and loaded it onto my computer. With the device still plugged into my computer I dragged those files to the trash to get rid of them. My recorded will only let me record for 1 and 1/2 hours because it thinks those files are still on there. However, it will not show that they are in any of the folders--A,B,C,D,etc... I want to know how to restore the memory. Can you help me?

Sounds as if you need to format the device. Go to the Menu - to Submenu press Ok - go to Format press Ok - Click start -

This will permanently erase all data and reset the memory so you will have the maximum amount of recording time again.

Try to connect first the Camera to your computer and check if there's any file inside it and see if you will be able to find that recording if not you can try to download a datarecovery software on the internet or just take this Camera to a data recovery center near you and let them do the recovery of the recording....

Hope that helps........

I want to fix itunes in my cell


1. Insert the driver installation CD into the computer, then wait for the installation wizard to load onto the screen.
2. Click "Next" on the welcome page, then follow the prompts of the installation wizard to completely setup the driver onto the computer.
3. Plug the USB data cable into the power port on the side of the Motorola RAZR V3 cell phone. Connect the other end into any USB port on the computer system.
4. Click "Start," "(My) Computer," then double-click the removable device icon. Select the "Music" icon to load a window with all the music saved on the cell phone.
5. Click-and-drag the music from your computer into the open window. You are able to copy over any audio track from a system media player, such as Windows Media Player or iTunes (open the program, then click-and-drag a track into the window). Repeat this process with any other audio file.
6. Close out the open windows, then right-click the removable device icon and select "Eject." Disconnect the Motorola RAZR V3xx from the computer once the icon disappears.

How do you load songs onto the LG vision TU720? Do you need cd software and where can I find it online?


If you have an LG data cable- not just a charging cable- you probably dont need any software. Plug your phone into the computer using the cable, and if you have a memeory card installed, the pc will recognize the memory card as an external drive or device. Then simply drag and drop your audio files. from your pc to the memory card.

I'm trying to copy old family videos from VCR to DVD. I'm using the correct disc type (DVD-R) and there's no copy protection. I've tried both Sony and HP discs. Each time, it seems to be working but...


First, try to refinalize the disc if it failed the first time by going into the edit menu. Sometimes finalization just fails the first time.

If you are recording on 2-hr mode, and the length of your recording is an 1hr 50 min or more, there will not be enough space left on the disc to finalize. Going forward, your best solution would be to record in 3- or 4-hour mode for every 2 hrs worth of recording (6-hour mode for 3-5 hours of recording, etc.). Just to quickly decipher recording modes: 2-hr mode (sometimes called SP Mode, depending on DVD player) will record about 2 hours worth of material on a standard blank DVD (but some extra space would be required for finalization); 4-hour mode would record 4 hours worth of material on a standard DVD; 6-hour mode would record 6 hours, etc.

As far as salvaging the recordings you have already made - load the burned, yet unfinalized DVD's into your computer. Copy the files onto the desktop or some easy-to-find location on your computer. Then use a program, free or otherwise (I personally reccomend Nero or Roxio), to re-burn the discs. The newer version of Nero automatically finalizes the disc, but some software requires you to select an option that allows you to "close disc" or "finalize" the disc. (In computer lingo, "closing" means the same thing as "finalizing").

Good luck!
