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.

Can't erase on my olympus WS-100


Do you plug into your computer? If so, you can erase from there.
Does your recorder have a "format" setting? That will erase entire contents.

My WS 100 says FULL and won't either let me put it


The recorder should be formatted only by using the internal FORMAT function found in the recorder's Menu. Using a computer to format the recorder may corrupt or delete system files needed to run the recorder, so formatting via the computer is not recommended.
Individual files can be deleted from the recorder while it is connected to a computer without negative effects.

Formated the Olympus ws-100 voice recorder via PC and now I cannot use it. What do I need to do to restore it?


Did you have a firmware cd with it? Basically you have lost the software which runs it so need to reload it. I would contact the manufacturer and see if they can send you the software and tell you how to load it.

Can you save file in WAV format?


The recorder will record the file in WMA format. You will probably need to search for third party software that will allow you to change the format from WMA to WAV. Do a google search for audio editing software that converts from WMA to WAV. Olympus does not provide any software that does this type of conversion.
