Question about Olympus WS-300M Digital Voice Recorder

How do i REALLY erase on my olympus ws-300m?

Hi there!

Please, help me! I have deliberately erased almost every file on my olympus ws-3000m, but the memory still says "full" and I can't record anything. Can't find the manual either, I suspect the cat's eaten it.

Would you be so kind as to help me here? How does one REALLY get rid of unwanted files in the recorder? Seems they're still there somewhere.

Best regards

PS It's a great little machine, still!

Suggestion is to format the device to remove all unwanted data permanently.

1 While the recorder is stopped, press the MENU button for 1 second or longer. The menu opens
2 Press the + or – button to chooseSubmenu and then + button to “Format”.
3 Press the OK button. The “Cancel” indicator flashes.
4 Press the + button to choose “Start”.
5 Press the OK button. After the “Data Will Be Cleared” message is on for two seconds, “Cancel” will turn on.
6 Press the + button again to choose “Start”.
7 Press the OK button. Formatting begins and an indicator flashes
on the display.
“Format Done” displays when formatting ends

Can't erase on my olympus WS-100


Do you plug into your computer? If so, you can erase from there.
Does your recorder have a "format" setting? That will erase entire contents.

Editing? Can dictation be paused, then go back part way and....


you can not do this with the Olympus ws-100, you need a dictation machine that has the editing function which allows you to easily insert, overwrite, partially erase files and continue on the same file, most of the digital dictation units have NEW FILE BUTTON , you will stay recording on the same file till you press new.
Look at Olympus DS-2300. Olympus DS-33300 or ds-4000.

Erasing Files


when you copy the files to your computer the files are still in the ws-100, you have to erase them in the ws-100 buttons after that.
