Question about Olympus WS-311M Digital Voice Recorder

3 Answers

HI, I have 2 problems: 1/ After downloading some lectures into my MacBook computer as wavefiles, and then erasing them from the recorder, i am getting this message: "Can't make the system file. Connect to PC and delete unnecessary file". I have done this operation many times w/o incident. I can't figure out what to do and the message blocks all other functions as long as its there in the window. 2/ Can I, or how can I get these wavefiles into a format that I can download and play on my iphone/ipod?

The ipod only supports MP4 video/audio, you would need to get some software which will convert the WAV files to MP4. As to the recorder have you tried to format it? after all it is a storage device

    If you format the recorder, all files will be removed and all
    function settings will return to defaults except date and time settings.
    Transfer any important files to a computer before formatting the recorder.



     


    If
    the recorder is formatted, data for guidance, alarm playback, and
    starting/closing tune when the power is turned On/Off will also be erased and
    these features will not be available in the future. If you erase data by
    mistake, connect the recorder to a computer and use DSS Player to copy it to
    the recorder 



  • fixyy Nov 16, 2008

Hi Terry, Are you wanting to set your computer back?
If so.
You need to boot the system to the Recovery HD. Hold down Command+r key at startup. Open Disk Utility and erase the Macintosh HD. Exit out of DU and select Reinstall Mac OS X. Select Macintosh HD as the place to install to and wait for OS to be downloaded from the net. The computer will restart when the download is finshed and the install will start.

I have a Macbook Air with Microsoft Word Home and Student 2008 installed on it. I use the audio recording feature on in Word to take notes in lectures, but since the internal mic was not enough to capture...


In sound system preferences when the external mic is plugged in, there is a drop down menu in the input tab that says "Use the audio port for:" make sure it says input.

Not playing full recording


Hi,
Maybe it's the preview play option of the player that you are using. It only plays a part of the recording for you to identify if it is the right recording that you are trying to find because the recorded allows you to record more than one file.

Erasing


I had the same problem. I downloaded the instruction pamphlet at http://www.olympus.co.jp/en/support/imsg/vtrek/download/manual/ws/man_ws100_ws200s.pdf and reformatted the recorder. It seems to work fine now.

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.

Recorder says "PLEASE DOWNLOAD FILES," but there are no files to download


The DS-2 has a format option in the menu under submenu. After you choose start you will see a progress bar and it should return to full record time. Use on a MAC seems to cause the reduced record time more often than on a PC.
