Question about Olympus WS-110 Digital Voice Recorder

WS-110 memory full but no files

I recently moved all .wma files from my WS-110 dig voice recorder to my mac. however, when i try to record anything, i get "memory full" error. what's strange is the recorder also shows as having no files.
was i not supposed to actually move the .wma files from the recorder, and instead erase them from the recorder itself?

    well, i resolved this myself by going to the sub-menu, and formatting
    the recorder to its original state. thankfully, i backed up the files
    on my computer first, so i didn't lose any data, although i did have to
    go in and re-set all my preferences on the recorder.

    lesson: don't MOVE files from recorder to computer. copy them instead,
    and do the actual erasing from the physical recorder itself.

i don't know if this was the most elegant solution, but at least it did get my recorder up and running again. i'd love to hear if there is a better resolution out there.

It says "Memory Full" but


If you are sure you have erased all files in all folders then it would not do any harm to run FORMAT from the menu.

This may well clear your "Memory Full" message and get your device working again.

Hope this helps.

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.

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.
