Olympus digital recorder WS 110, keeps saying connect to pc

I recently noticed my Olympus recorder was constantly running out of space. After I transfer my files to my mac I manually erase them on the recorder. But it still seemed like I had no time on the recrder, never more than 2 hours available. SO I erased everything out of each folder, including stuff that wasn't files I recrded (don't know what they were) When I put the battery back on the recorder it says Check and then connect to PC. I tried dragging and dropping the files out of the trash back into the recorder but that hasn't helped. Is it trashed for good?

    That worked! Thanks! Took me awhile to find the menu, but once I did, I just followed the prompts : )

The only thing left to try is to try and format the device and see if you can restore it back to factory default settings. You go to the menu and to the format option. This will permanently remove any recordings you have done and as I said restore the device back to factory settings. If that doesn't work then you will probably need to send it to Olympus for repair service.

Ineed instructions or a manuel on how to operate


try and find the model number on the recorder you have, then type that and the following into a google search: olympus recorder +manual filetype:pdf

For example, if you have a WS-110, you'd put the following into google:

ws-110 olympus recorder +manual filetype:pdf

That will return a list of PDF files, of which user manuals are included.

Won't turn on


It seems to be working now....I am keeping my fingers crossed. Being that my technology skills leave something to be desired, I fixed it the old fashioned way. Took the batteries out, blew hard into the battery space, put the battery back in and said a little prayer. It turned right on....

WS-110 memory full but no files


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.
