    Tech support said that this needs to be returned to them to be corrected, unfortunately there is a $44 flat rate for any returns like that :(

I reformat my olympus ws 100 on a mac and, erase everything, and the computer didnt want to recognized it. When turn on the display showed check and went off. When turn on without connecting to the computer and without the hold the display showed no format. If you use the foward button you can change the display to yes format and press play to select. That solve the problem.

Make sure the device is not in HOLD. The Hold button acts like it is the on/off switch. I don't think the recorder needs to be formatted just not in the Hold position.

    Thank you, BabsOne! it was in HOLD. I thought I would have to throw it away since it didn't want to start! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Formated the Olympus ws-100 voice recorder via PC and now I cannot use it. What do I need to do to restore it?


Did you have a firmware cd with it? Basically you have lost the software which runs it so need to reload it. I would contact the manufacturer and see if they can send you the software and tell you how to load it.

Here is the link to the Olympus website where you can download the manual. In it there are steps to format the device which should clear all of the data and you should be able to start recording on it again.

CANNOT TRANSFER AUDIO FILES FROM WS-100 OLYMPUS VOICE RECORDER TO PC (Windows XP)


I wrote this for the Olympus VN-3100PC although it may work with this device as well.

Try this:

This problem can typically be solved by unplugging the device from your computer's USB port and plugging it in to another USB port on the same computer.

Also be sure you have Olympus Digital Wave Player installed and open with your Transfer Options set to Auto Transfer. To do this, follow the steps below:

Open Digital Wave Player > select Transfer from the menu > select Transfer Options > under Auto Transfer, check the box which reads "Transfer all audio files after detecting Recorder."

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.
