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?

I downloaded the contents of my Tascam DR-05 to my computer because it was full, but, instead of doing it as always, by just downloading the soundfiles, I copied the file folder dr005 to my computer,


Eric have you tried to do a "Quick Format"? If I'm not mistaken when that is done, you re-format your card and the small memory in the DR05. I had trouble with mine at first but when I did the formatting after I put the bigger 2GB memory card in the DR05 worked great. I record on "All Files" too, that seems to work well also.
Hope that helps,
Patrick

Deleting tracks off 4gb sa2640 gogear


The files are not deleted from the device but moved to the recycle bin. To completely remove the files from the MP3 player, use the following procedure:
1. Open Windows Explorer by double clicking the My Computer icon on your desktop.
2. Click on the Tools menu and select Folder Options.
3. Select the Tab View and check to select the Show hidden Files and Folders option.
4. Navigate to the device. A folder called recycle bin is available. Completely remove this folder from the device.Once the recycle bin folder is removed, the files are completely removed from the device and the free space is available.

Find the memory card in your "My computer" directory. Hit the windows key and E at the same time to bring it up. Right click the card, then select "Format...". From here you can format the card to FAT32 to completely erase everything and make it like new again. If the formatting fails, the card has a hardware corruption and should be replaced.

Message says "Card Full"


The sound file has used all available space on the memory card. Either put in a different card or purge the sound file(s) on the card so you can record new files.

After deleting pictures I never get 40GB of memory space back


I found the same thing. Had to go to "my computer" , load up the photobank icon.

Click on the cards folder and then delete each folder.

THEN ,after clearing off the photobank, go to the desktop and empty the recycle bin. You will get the 40gigs back.

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.
