Question about Olympus WS-100 Digital Voice Recorder

1 Answer

Quality of product

Hi there, I am not familiar with these types of devices. I am wondering if this product would be suitable to use for a board meeting with 7 members in attendance?. How close to the speaker does the device need to be?

Thank you.

Hey Donna,
The WS100 is great for this. Put it in the centre of the table and it will pick up everyone - assuming normal size of table for 7 people.

You can get an add on microphone but I have never needed it.

Newer models can hold more hours but I have not tried them.

Hi Johnna, here is the manual for it, I had a quick look and didn't see a pin to unlock it you could try 1234 or 0000 good luck with it. Cheers_Greg.

Totally unresponsive to key imputs; display shows ERR

With any type of digital device such as this, there is a motherboard involved. When the buttons arent working, in your case, the solution is that the motherboard is shot. You could try to open the device and attempt to fix it or find repair service.

Dowload in my computer

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.

Is it possible to rewind and overwrite dictation with Olympus VN-2100PC

Unfortunately with this device the VN-2100PC it is not possible to rewind and overwrite any dictations that were done. Each time the record button is pressed and then the stop button is pressed it will create a new file. They may want to look for a DS-2300 or a DS-2400 recorder as these devices have the ability to rewind and allow you to dictate over previously recorded information in the same file. There is a button on these devices called "New" that allows you to stay within the same file until you press New to start the next audio file.

Olympus DS-150

Judging from Olympus' website the device does appear to be MAC compliant as there are software downloads for the MAC system available for download. As far as voice to text goes, Olympus does not offer that option. Voice to text is done through a company called Nuance with a product called Dragon Naturally Speaking

Download Sony ICD-B25 digital recorder to computer

I have found conflicting information on this recorder. According to product specs on Amazon.comUK This recorder has no computer connection.

If this product description is wrong you should see a USB connection somewhere on the recorder. Just connect the USB cable from recorder to your computer. If you did not receive a USB cable with your recorder you will have to buy one. You will have to determine if you need a mini or regular USB cable. Then double click on my computer. You should see the device listed there. Double click on the Sony device icon. The files on your recorder should now be showing. You should then be able to drag the files to a folder of your choosing on your computer.
