Question about Olympus WS-100 Digital Voice Recorder

1 Answer

I'm using a Radio Shack telephone handset recording control that you plug one end into the phone and the other two ends into the handset and the recorder's mike jack. (I'm using an Olympus DS330). Trouble is, it records only the voice on the other end of the line when I set the box to Record and then only mine when I switch it to Play. Seems to be using only one channel at a time. Can I make it record both sides of the conversation?

I use one, too, and it took me a minute to set up right. You need to plug one end into the digital in on your pc, or your recorder, and take the phone line from your phone, put it into the slot on the control, then take the phone jack from the control into your phone. Now, this is for a corded phone, but i cannot imagine it being any different for a cordless, as it, too, plugs into a wall somewhere.

Since I record directly to my pc, using WavePad, i don't know anything about the play button on the controller. I read that it would be used, somehow, to play the recording on the actual tape, but i realy don't know.

Hope that helps.

Hi, i would like to know if recordings can be downloaded from the Coby CXR190-1G to the computer.


Yes, absolutely!

I'm guessing you don't have the CX-R190 software that's compatible with your OS version.
No problem.

I use a patch cable between the AUDIO IN on my PC and the EAR on the recorder.

Since the ouput of the recorder is monoaural, all you need is a mono (2 wire) lenght of cable with a standard 3.5mm plug at each end. I made one myself, but I guess Radio Shack may have something like this:

If they don't have it, then a STEREO cable (3 wires) will work just fine.
Like this one:

To record the sound you can use any audio recorder.
I use Audacity. It's a freebie and pretty straightforward to use.

After you've plugged it all in, all you need to do is start Audacity and then start to playback the files from your recorder.
When they are on your computer, you can copy, cut, paste, add special effects, and later convert them to MP3 or whatever.

Good luck.

When I connect my device to my laptop it just does not appear at all. It says that there is a problem with the software and I cannot find a way to fix it. I have try to plug it to three different laptops...


You don't mention the Operating System.

Now the question is: What do you want, good grammar or good taste?
It's an old cigarette commercial, but we can appliy it loosely to this situation.

Do you want to waste more time and keep trying to reinstall the software, or you just want to use your recorder and transfer the sound files to your PC or laptop?

I know a way around the issue.
Not very elegant? Pehaps.
Effective? Absolutely!

I am trying to download audio files from an Olympus digital voice recorder VN-3100PC to my HP computer that has Windows Vista. But I cannot get the files to show up and I think the driver is not installed...


Most likely the problem is " or something" .
I'm sure you know Windows Vista has issues with many things, even if the Recorder's software claims compatibility.
I know, that does not help at all, but there is a way around the issue.
Crude? Pehaps. Effective? Absolutely!

I use a patch cable between the AUDIO IN on my PC and the EAR on the recorder.
Since the ouput of the recorder is monoaural, all you need is a mono (2 wire) lenght of cable with a standard 3mm plug at each end. I made it myself, but I guess Radio Shack may have somethinng like that.

Hello, I am trying to download some recordings from my DS-30 onto my MacBook. How do I do this?


I don't know if a Mac version of software came with your Digital Recorder.

I have a PC, and a similar Digital Recorder. A DS-330 but I'm too lazy to install the software, DSS Player 2002 and then look for the USB cable.

So, I connected the Digital Recorder's Ear directly to the audio-in of the PC via a mono (2 wire) patch cable, with a standard 3.5 mm plug at each end. (As long as it fits in both, the Recorder and your MacBook, it will work). I suspect "The Source" (Radio Shack) may have such item.
You can also use a "stereo" patch cable.

I use Audacity as the sound recorder and then convert it to MP3. There is a version for Mac available too.

If I can be of further assistance, please drop me a line at:

Glad to be of help.

PLEASE I WANT THE LATEST DRIVER OF RADIOSHACK DIGITAL VOICE TELEPHONE RECORDER MODEL 43-127 WHICH COMPATIBLE TO WINDOWS 7


I got it to work.

First, I downloaded the software from the Radio Shack site at:
http://www.radioshack.com/graphics/uc/rsk/Support/SoftwareDownload/4300127.exe

Once downloaded, I ran this to extract the files to my hard drive under c:\4300127.

Next I went to my Device Manager (My computer->Manage->Device Manager) and under Other Devices found my 43-127 recorder.

I right-clicked on this and selected properties. Then I clicked Update Driver.

I then selected "Browse my computer for driver software". I then selected the C:\43-127 directory and selected ok. I got a warning about not finding the publisher but I opted to install the driver software anyway.

One other thing I noted; When I start the recorder software I have to select "Run as administrator" otherwise the files aren't able to download to my hard drive. This may be just due to a security setting on my computer.

Hope this helps!

How to record a phone conversation


The best solution I found for recording a telephone conversation is a product I purchased at Radio Shack. But actually, I have replaced my Perlcorder with an HTC Hero cell phone, but any Android cell phone will do. There is an app called Ultimate Voice Recorder which is absolutely unbelievable both for its total clarity and automation. It makes ant other type of telephone recorder obsolete. With the app you get complete clarity, the call is saved to your SD card, and you can set the app to record every call, if you like.

Recording a Phone Conversation


Olympus makes a device that allows you to record telephone conversations without having to hook up anything to the actual telephone. It is called a TP-7. It connects one end to the voice recorder in the mic jack and the other end is an ear bud microphone so that you are able to record the person who you are speaking to on the telephone so that the voice recorder captures both sides of the conversation.
go to emporium.olympus.com click on the link for voice recorders select your voice recorder and then look for the TP-7.

Panasonic RR-830


The headset you are using is a stereo headset. This unit uses a mono headset. Look at the end of the headset. If there is 2 black rings, it is stereo. You can get a stereo to mono adapter at Radio Shack for about $2.50.
