Question about Olympus DS-4000 Digital Voice Recorder

1 Answer

Memory Error I was dictating for about an hour of record time, set the recorder down for the night and when I went to use it the next day it showed a "MEMORY ERROR". I tried a new chip and it didn't help but it was 2 gigs and the recorder apparently doesn't support that large a chip. What should I do? I also tried changing the batteries.

    The suggestion that I got from dictationmal was probably a good one but before I could try it out I noticed another idea - formatting the memory card - and tried that and was successful in getting the OLympus DS - 4000 working again. Thanks for the help.

You will need a new memory card, 1 gig or less, and not the new HS 1 gig cards. Look for a M type or get a 512 or smaller.

Card indicates memory error what can be done to correct this problem and also save dictation already on there ?


Hi cazpell,

If you're encountering a memory error, it is often caused by the battery pack. Battery packs included with the DS-4000 are rechargeable battery packs. This problem is likely to happen on the DS-4000 when a NEW battery pack is being used. The battery pack out of the box does not hold enough charge to power up the recorder through its initial start-up procedure.

1. Please turn off the recorder.

2. Remove the battery pack and memory card for 20 seconds.

3. Install the memory card in the card slot.

4. Install new AAA batteries before you turn ON the DS-4000.

5. Your battery pack may also not be fully charged. All new battery packs must be fully charged from 2.5 to 3 hours before first time use.

6. For the first week to 10 days of use, it is recommended to recharge the battery pack as often as possible. This will exercise it and improve its charge-hold capacity.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Can not get it to unload all I have recorded


It could be corrupted file. Try downloading one file at a time through My Computer. After you have exhausted all possibilities, format the recorder through the recorder (not the computer) and your memory should be fine

Olympus DS4000 says Memory Error


I had several cases lke this with clients. One of the dictations is corrupted. It's the "one" here that matters. When you connect the DS-4000 to a PC, it appears in your "My Computer" as a Removable Drive. Browse this drive, and you will find the dictations in one of the folders (A, B, C etc...) or they might be scattered between folder depending on how your user records.
Try to copy dictation manually from that drive to the matching folders on the PC (by default My Documents-->DSSPlayer-->Messages-->FolderA, FolderB..., although you might have changed that).

At some stage one of the dictation files will refuse to copy/paste: that's the corrupted one; however should should be able to save the others. Once you have salvaged all but one dictation, you can do a format of the card. In fact, I suggest you chage the card, as corruption is usually a sign of worst things to come...

Using this procedure, at least only one dictation will need re-dictated.

I hope this helps.

1b] press NEXT to pick 1minute allowance recording for recieving messages coming in, or 2 minutes or 3 minutes or 4 minutes.

Memory Error


I would suggest the XD card is corrupt. You may be able to copy the recording off the machine by copy and paste in windows explorer. If not then they are lost. Data recovery will not work very as the files are recorded in dss format.

Only option is to format the card on the PC.

Lost Recordings


Very odd problem. If the unit has a problem with software, it won't work at all. I've never seen a unit delete ALL the shows, unless someone initiated a clear and delete everything from the reset menu.

Was the unit in guided setup? or was everything (channel guides, settings) the same and your recordings were just gone?

if you haven't done so yet, set the clock
menu/ use up/down arrows to select "clock set", press right arrow to select, set day, year, etc using up and down arrows, when each is set, the right arrow moves you to the next bit

once clock is set

timer recording
menu
use up and down arrows to scroll to timer recording, and press the right arrow to select
set the program number (1-8)
set frequency (once, daily, weekly)
set the date to record
set start time (i usually go 5 mins prior)
set end time (i usually go 5 mins after)
set channel number
set tape speed
exit by pressing clear/c reset
press t-set to activate the timer

the timer rec light should come on, the timer recording will not be active unless you press the t-set button

hope this helps
