Question about Sony ICD-P210 Digital Voice Recorder
I have this issue more or less whenever i change the batteries, i use rechargeables and i think that may be part of the issue. anyway... as silly as it sounds i just keep taking the batteries in and out and messing around swapping them with AAAs from other gadgets that i have and eventually the device works again and all my recordings are still there.
it just happened again this evening, when i put 2 newly charged batteries back into it after them being out for about 24hours.
i messed around with combinations of flat rechargeable and alkaline and charged batteries and eventually it worked again, when i used a charged and an almost flat rechargable combo. i mustve put the batteries in and out about a hundred times but it does the trick in the end.
oh, i have a ICD P520 by the way, but i think theyre all the same. and i have to agree with that other pointless post, what a load of ****. you shouldnt pay this much money for something that doesnt work properly.

Your problem may have been caused when you removed the unit from the PC without using the "safely remove hardware" option.
What you need to do is download the latest version of Digital Voice Editor (I think we are up to 3.1 now)
When you connect the ICD unit it will probably give you a number of access errors
Ignore them and go to the IC Recorder Menu. Select WHOLE and DELETE. Delete everything.
After a minute or so the unit will come to life and you'll see the Directories that are standard in your unit.
Remove the hardware from the computer (safely! by closing the program first) and turn the unit off.
Now turn it on...... Bingo!
