When I replaced the microphone batteries, one of the coils broke that holds the batteries in place. The microphone will not function even after I reinserted the coil to hold battery in place. I have important information already recorded that I must retieve. Please advise.

It's not supposed to. The WS-500m uses standard AA batteries, either disposables or rechargeables. If you want to use rechargeables, you must charge them outside the recorder using a separate battery charger.
You're right..This happens often when one changes the battery.Here's what to do :
The ERR message can only be corrected by holding in the DISP/MENU and STOP buttons for two seconds, which results in ALL the material on the recorder being erased. It will say (FOR) for a few minutes while it is erasing everything, then will work again. Solution found at http://www.amazon.co.uk/Olympus-VN-2100-Digital-Recorder-microphone/dp/B000V3NTEU
If you press and hold the 'Conf' button, the machine will record using it's built-in mic (located on the right-hand side of the machine, closer to the front). It is probably recommended to get a microphone that plugs into the machine for better recording quality. Depending on what you're recording, you could get a handheld microphone or a telephone record adapter that plugs into your phone and the back of the 3750 (press and hold 'Tel Rec' to use that).
If your computer has an input on the sound card (Three holes coloured Yellow Blue & Green on lots of machines) then by purchasing a lead from Tandy or Radio Shack you can plug your cassette recorder in and record the contents to the hard drive as .wav files
You will need a mini jack lug suitable for the output on your recorder and the same for the PC
Windows has its own built in Sound Recorder software but there are better products on the market.
Note: I tested it on my XP and it worked perfectly, but I couldn't get it to work on my Vista. I probably won't hear from any of you again, but I hope you will return the favor by helping others. Thanks!
To transfer recordings from the Sony ICD-B600 to Windows first buy a Radio Shack #42-2497 cable. Connect the cable from the recorder headphone jack to the computer microphone jack. In Windows XP follow the path: start, All Programs, Accessories, Entertainment, Sound Recorder. This small window will allow you to record 60 seconds of sound to a file. Get Article #82215 from the Microsoft web site. It will tell you how to make extended recordings. I was able to record 45 minutes continuously. The recorder is turned on by moving the 'HOLD' switch down. The recorder is turned off by moving the 'HOLD' switch up and waiting 2.5 seconds. Have fun.
