Not so much as a solution as a reason why it won't work. The Olympus web site FAQs says that you can't transfer onto an audio CD because the 4-bit depth used to expand the recorder memory can't be converted to a format that is compatible with audio CDs.

I'd be very pleased to find someone who's found a way round this as I brought this recorder to record my study notes, put them onto CD and play them to myself in the car, walking the dog, during lunchbreak etc.

When uploading the audio files from any folder


Why don’t you try another usb cable? Or you could try transferring via Bluetooth as well. From the message, 'unexpected error has occurred in communication' you can see that the device providing the communication between phone and PC, i.e. cable is not functioning well. That is why even when you switch from port to port the problem persists.

Voice Recorder-Files to CD?


Please follow the below solutions to create either an audio CD-ROM of .wav files or back-up
.wav files to a CD-ROM.
Problem: .Wav files downloaded to PC computer from the DW-90, VN Series, and DSS Files
created with DS Series recorders cannot be copied to a rewritable CD-ROM using Windows
Media Player to create an audio CD-ROM.
Explanation: These digital voice recorders create .wav files at 8kHZ, 12kHZ, or 22kHz
depending on the Quality setting. Digital Wave player software is used to download Wav files to
a PC computer from the DW or VN Series of recorders. DSS Player is used to download DSS
files from the DS Series recorders and convert them to Wav files. If Windows Media Player is
then used to copy the files to a rewritable CD-ROM to create an audio CD-ROM, the files will
not copy properly or an error message may appear. Windows Media Player can only create an
audio CD-ROM if the .wav file is 44.1kHZ, 16 bit stereo.
Solution: Follow the procedure below to convert the .wav files to 44.1 kHZ, 16 bit stereo. Then
use Windows Media Player to copy the files to a rewritable CD-ROM.
1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, click Entertainment, and then click Sound Recorder.
2. On the File menu, click Open.
3. In the Open dialog box, specify the name of the audio file that you want to convert, and
then click OK. Files are usually located at C:\Program Files\Olympus\Digital Wave
Player\Message\Folder A.
4. On the File menu, click Save As.
In the Save As dialog box, click Change.
In the Attributes box, click 44.100 kHz, 16 Bit, Stereo, and then click OK.
Click Save. After you convert your files, try to copy them to a CD-ROM again.

Transfering a stored PC recording


The recordings simply reside on your pc, but not in the "Digital Wave Player" software. The software is merely there to let you play the recordings, probably because they are not in a native Windows format.

If the recordings are "Wave, .wav" files as suggested by the software, then simply locate the files you want to put on disc... I am guessing you want to burn on cd.

Then, use a burning program such as Nero to add these files and burn to disc.

If you don't have Nero, then you would need to figure out what type of burning software your machine has installed and go from there.

Saving a Voice File to a CD


I just made a .way copy and saved that to my desktop. Then I burned it on a CD. That format plays on Windows Media player. The .voc file and .exe file would not play on Windows Media.

The model which I have has a built-in file that downloads to your PC that installs a program for converting your .voc files into either WAV or EXE. The program can be copied and shared as there is no registration, however it would appear designed to work specifically with this particular device.

try this solution from microsoft:
I can’t play a file that Windows Media Player supports. What should I do?Most likely, a required codec isn't installed on your computer. Typically, Windows Media Player automatically downloads any required codecs from the Internet and installs them. However, this may not happen for the following reasons:
• The necessary codec (typically, a non-Microsoft codec) isn't available on the codec server.
• You have an older version of the Player and your automatic codec-download option isn't enabled.
• The Internet security settings for your browser are set too high.
• You're not connected to the Internet.
If you have an older version of the Player (prior to Windows Media Player 9 Series), you can check your codec download setting by doing the following:
1.
In Windows Media Player, on the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Player tab.
2.
In the Auto upgrade area, make sure Enable automatic codec download is checked, and specify how often you want the Player to check for updates.
You can change your Internet security settings (if you are logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group) by doing the following:
1.
In Control Panel, open Internet Options.
2.
Click the Security tab, and then click Internet.
3.
In the Security level for this zone area, click Default Level.
If you can’t play the file after completing this procedure, restart your computer, and then try to play the file again.
If you still can’t play the file, try to play another file with the same file name extension. If you can play this file, then there is a problem with the file that you want to play. For more troubleshooting information, see the Windows Media Player Multimedia File Formats Web
