    My ICD-P320 presents the same message on the screen: ERR ACCESS. I have already changed the batteries but it still doesn't work. I have contacted some services here in my area but they say they can't repair it. I am trying this site now but I am not sure if I am going to be successful. I have the impression that nobody seems to know the answer.

This is because the file system of this device has serious bugs. Avoid connecting it to the computer. It will write files in a way the device will not understand. To fix you need to manually edit the FAT byte by byte.

The battery indicator will flash and/or the IC recorder will display the error ACCESS when the batteries are low. Install new, fully-charged batteries to resolve this issue.

I have sony icd-px820 voice recorder and i'll format it through PC and now its show a err call "err format" what can i do plz help me.?

You have to format it as FAT, not FAT32.
Then safely eject it from your system and unplug it. It will say ACCESS for a while and then be back in function.
Good luck.

Solution is very simple - just press DISP/MENU and STOP simultaneously for 2-3 seconds. There will start the FOR blinking on the screen of recorder (ERR will disappear) and the red "eye" on the switchboard. Wait for few minutes and your recorder is back to work :)

Warnning: This means FULL restart and you will lose ALL your recorded data! But I did not find any other solutions...

Olympus VN-3100PC Voice Recorder Problem

The ERR message can only be corrected by holding in the DISP/MENU and STOP buttons for two seconds, which results in all the material on the recorder being erased. It will say (FOR) for a few minutes while it is erasing everything, then will work again. Solution found at

My IC recorder P210 says ERR ACCESS

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 tirn the unit off.
Now turn it on...... Bingo!

Err access

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.
