Make sure all the files from the memory card have been downloaded and saved to the computer. You are going to need to format the memory card to remove the write protect/read only/lock issue. By formatting this will permanently erase all data from the memory card so you are able to use it again.
To format the card: go to Menu - to Submenu - to Format option - Start - then Start again - Press Menu to initiate the process - When done the recorder will be able to be used for recording purposes again.

Device stopped recording, or doing anything else. The screen shows a little lock icon. It is fully powered up.


The lock icon means you have switched the "lock" on ...this prevents accidental erasure of files.... if you need the operators manual go to www.olympusamerica.com ...manuals are under "SUPPORT".

I was using my voice Digital Recorder VN-6200PC. I was recording a my lesson when the screen shows formatting, I immediately took out the battery as not to lose any data, because I was taping and it began to format and I lose the data I was recording. So this time I remove the battery. However when I put back the battery it began to say imput blocked. Please help?

Message on attempt to record: 'input blocked'


I got this same message on my VN7000PC that I got in LIDL. The message appeared when I tried to record. I could not get it to go away. At the time I just happened to have 5 files in Folder A with lock on. I tried to remove the file locks. I got the same message "Input Blocked". That was a clue. Maybe it had something to do with the internal 1GB drive. I formatted the drive. The message disappeared and now I can record again.

Olympus DM-20 erase lock is on, how to undo it?


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

went on the "menu" option and formated the disk. I first downloaded the files I needed to my computer. Took off the "lock" option.

Locked file ?


The folder lock can oly be solved by chosing the option "format" in the sub-menu. But please copy the *.dss - files still resting at your card at your harddisk first.

When the recorder finishes the format procedure, all folders will be unlocked again.

The "Read-Only-Failure" will occur again at recorders with differend user profiles, when you put the switched-off recorder into the docking station first and switch the power button to "on". So avoid this constellation!

If the card was edited via a computer the xD card becomes locked for protection purposes. Put the card in the recorder and format the recorder the lock will be gone. The device will show up as a removeable disk but gets moody if the memory is altered in any way by the computer.

Had same problem. Found online handbook for DS-4000 and page 37 pointed way.
Press menu button on the handset.Go to sub menu. Page 37 of online handbook suggests you can lock and unlock from this but I used the format icon on the submenu to reformat the card. Seems to be working fine now.
