I solved the problem by connecting my Sony IC Recorder to the USB port on my McBook Pro computer and then emptying the trash can on the Mac computer. Visually (flashing red indicator light) and audibly (the recorder's sound that indicates something being erased), it was clear that mp3 files were finally, really being erased on the Sony recorder even though the recorder's own screen display had previously shown only empty folders and no files. Dragging files to the trash can doesn't really erase them unless you also empty the trash. All dragging to the trash can does is somehow mark the files in a way that, unfortunately, makes them invisible to Sony's file detection system.
The voice recorder is in read only status - you will need to format the device to remove the lock (read only). Go to menu - to submenu and then run the format option. make sure all files have been downloaded as once device is formatted all files will be permanently deleted
When I turn on the recorder It says "memory trouble", even after I formatted both the music and voice folders. Sometimes the "Memory trouble" shows while I record Physiology class,Resulting in stopping the recording.
I would be very grateful for any assistance concerning this.
to format you need to hold the display/menu button down for a minute then a menu appears scroll down using FF till you get format then hit play and you will be gided from there
not difficult but impossible to guess
thanks to other guys
To reset the settings back to English: 1. Set the DM-20 to Voice mode using the blue switch on the back voice recorder. 2. Remove the DM-20 from Hold using the gray switch on the back of the voice recorder. 3. Press and hold the DISPLAY/MENU button on the front of the DM-20 for at least 3 seconds. The menu list is displayed. 4. Click the REWIND button six times to highlight the Format menu item. 5. Click the PLAY button to select the Format menu item. A message will be displayed with Cancel and Start options. 6. Click the REWIND button once to highlight Start. 7. Click the PLAY to select Start. A message stating that the data will be cleared will display briefly. Then a message asking if you are sure will be displayed. 8. Click the REWIND button once to highlight the Start menu item to continue with the format. 9. Click the PLAY select the Start menu item and begin the format.The format progress bar will appear. When it is complete the menu items will be in the English language.
I received this response from the european Olypus support group :-
Turn recorder on - Press STOP, FOLDER and MENU buttons and hold all of
them for about 3 seconds or until display changes - then press PLAY
button and that resets the recorder back to English.
