Wikipedia: Digital dictation is a method of recording and editing the spoken word in real-time. The recording is done by the use of a digital recorder. Digital recorders are lighter have a longer battery life and are able to record a for a lot longer utilizing the same media, as compared to analog tape based dictation machines. The files generated with digital recorders vary in size(kilo bites or mega bites) depending on the manufacturer and the format the user chooses. The most common file formats that digital recorders generate have following extension WAV, WMA, and MP3 true dictation machines record in the DSS and DS2 format.

Hello You need to Use Philips SpeechExec software for automatic download, conversion and routing of files recorded with a Pocket Memo dictation recorder. How and which files are downloaded after a recorder is connected can be configured in the settings menu of SpeechExec or with the Configuration Wizard
Configure the download process from the Pocket Memo How and which files are downloaded after a Pocket Memo is connected can be configured in the settings menu or the Configuration Wizard. 1 Connect the Digital Pocket Memo to the PC using the USB cable. 2 Click Settings > General Settings on the menu bar, select DPM/DT Configuration > DPM Settings from the list on the left side. 3 Click the Start... button. The DPM configuration dialog is displayed in a new window. 4 Select Download in the left pane. 5 Select which files will be downloaded (download file type): • All files • EOL (recordings marked as finished/endof- letter) • File selection (SpeechExec prompts the selection of specific files to be downloaded) • File with keyword 1 (specify a keyword) 6 The download settings also allow the user to specify if files will be deleted on the Pocket Memo after they are downloaded. 7 Click OK to save the settings and confirm the transfer of the new settings to the Pocket Memo.
If you are already using your dictation machine then you don't need to install its software as its already installed. Now you only require Nero for burning files to CDs. You also require a CD writer installed on your pc. You shall know where your files are saved when you record through dictation machine. If you can't find the recorded files kindly comment back.
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.
The memory is corrupted. You can reformat but that will delete all your files. If you need to recover the files, try PC Inspector Smart Recovery. I have had good success with that. Then you must reformat, or the problem will return. The problem is caused from static shocks to the recorder.
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.
