Rp5120-A Message: Bad File Format

Voice Recorder was just reformatted. It now records beautifully and file can be played back from Recorder. However, when trying to listen to file on Digital Voice Manager, or when trying to copy or transfer file from recorder to Digital Voice Manager, the Bad File Format message appears. Files that were transferred before recorder was reformatted can be played back from Digital Voice Manager without any problem.

Use a cable running from the headphone jack on the recorder into your PC microphone jack. Then you can capture the audio using Windows MovieMaker software that comes with Windows XP. I have done this and it worked perfectly.

SOURCE: RCA's RP5120 Digital Recorder has VOC format, can't share or copy to CD

Version 4.04 of the software has a utility to convert to .VOC files to .WAV or even .EXE. (Are there really folks who would prefer to receive an .EXE file in email?)

I've read in several reviews that you can save .VOC files as .MP3 files using the provided software, but either this feature is no longer available, or the reviewers were mistaken.

You can convert .WAV files to .MP3 files simply. You may find one such converter for free on C|NET at:
http://www.download.com/WAV-to-MP3-Encoder/3000-2140_4-10060500.html

A 5 minute google search (wav to mp3 freeware) revealed 3 absolutely free utilities which will do this. I, too, wish mp3 support was native with this product, but I can live with using these utilities.

You could have a virus but, I've noticed a lot lately of having to re-install about everything, software and drivers. The "bad file format", tells me the software that handles those types of files isn't operating right or on the computer, possibly. The USB device that you have could had the USB port conflict with an update or some other software. My Ti 89 won't even connect until one time, I put it into a USB port that I never use and it started working correctly. My video card, I make operate with out updates because, I can only make it work with an older version. You really have to keep up on this stuff or you start having problems. Then when you can't seem to keep up with it, you know you might have a virus. Hope this helps.

Need to know how to Manually reset RP5120-A


Plug in your recorder using the USB cable. Copy any of the files you see to your PC. Then reformat the drive. I don't have the exact details for doing this under windows but I fixed the problem this way.

RCA Digital Voice Manager software for RP5120 "warning decoding"


Bad News... I spoke to AudioVox/RCA (800-894-0956 < Direct DVR Number) and they told me that once you get this notification of a bad file format, there is NOTHING that can be done.

I tried DOS, too. Nothing worked.

The only thing left to try is connecting the recorder to the computer via a cable from the line out of the DVR to the line in of the audio card, and record from there. I'm going to try this, then return the recorder, if possible. Mind you, I've gone through several of these recorders and all of them have had this problem... eventually.

The customer service person there at AudioVox/RCA was direct, helpful, but clear that I couldn't do anything but reformat the recorder. Though she didn't really seem to care, by her tone, one way or another. They were still reproducing this product even with the flaws that exist (they certainly did not take ownership of the problem... they said it was out of their control and the problem was just like a virus).
