Question about Olympus DS-30 Digital Voice Recorder

1 Answer

No space available.

On the machine, I deleted all sound files in all folders, and yet it still came up Memory Full when I hit record. Hooked it up to PC, could only find system files in folders A to E, Audible, Music and Podcast. So (and I know this was BAD), I took *all* files off and put them on PC. Got system error on machine.  Tried to put system files back on, one at a time. But machine said that there's no space to put them back on. Huh?!  Tried to put various files back on got got a mixture of error code (couldn't find associated files), and not enough space. Um, help?

It is stating that the memory is full when it is not.. I go to each folder and nothing is there


I had my Pockettrax CX saying "Memory Full" although I'd deleted everything. What helped finally: I formatted the SD. Now I've got all the memory back. Don't know if that would help the recording speed. but maybe. IMPORTANT: SAVE ANY FILES on your LAPTOP before formatting the SD.Here's how to format the SD:Go to Menu.Click on "Common Menu"Scroll down until you get to "Format"Press "Yes""Formatting SD" comes up and, VoilaYou've got more space.

I deleted my audio files directly from the computer. Now that I try to record again, the device says that memory is full, even though I have no files on it. How do I reset it to record again?


To erase a selected file, first press the [ERASE] button. Next, press the [+] (plus) or [-] (minus) button to select "ERASE," and then press the [ERASE] or [OK] button.
To erase all files in a folder, first select the folder and press the [ERASE] button for three seconds or longer. Next, press the [+] (plus) or [-] (minus) button to select "ALL ERASE." Finally, press the [ERASE] or [OK] button.
NOTE:
The recorder should be formatted using only by using the internal FORMAT function found in the recorder's Menu. Formatting using the computer may corrupt system files needed to run the recorder, so computer formatting is not recommended. Individual files can be deleted using the computer with no negative effects.

I just deleted (remotely from my mac) all the files in Folder A of my Olympus DS -40, b/c I'd gotten a memory full message. Even though it shows no files in Folder A, it still says memory full.


I found the answer on this site: http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_support_faqs.asp?id=1126#22 I held down the menu button--got to the sub menu and restored it to the original default setting. It cleared everything and now I can record tons again. Note for future--don't delete on your mac--only delete the files on your dvr to save you the trouble of having to do this.

Sony ICD-UX70/UX80 digital recorder...memory full problem


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.
