Recovering deleted files from olympus VN-4100PC voice recorder

I have some very important files that were accidently erased from my olympus VN4100PC digital voice recorder. I am willing to destroy the device to retrieve the lost data. I have already tried PC inspector and Optimum Recovery FAT software. Neither could find the recorder when it was connected to my pc, it doesn't appear as a drive or a mass storage device. I would rather get the files back myself than send the recorder to some company. If anyone knows or has some ideas please let me know.

Chances are there to recover such kind of deleted files from your Olympus recorder.

First things first: DO NOT take any more videos or audio with the recorder that you want to recover files from in case you may quite possibly ruin your chances of voice memo file recovery.

Then connect your device to a PC, and have a try of Photo Recovery (also recover audio, voice memos, video files etc), a data recovery program which is good at recovering media files lost. If you are Mac OS X users, turn to Data Recovery for Mac.

Lastly, I hope you good luck. Again you should remember - the more you use your recorder, the less likely you may be able to recover the deleted files back! So STOP using the device ASAP.

Have you tried this recorder another computer?
If this recorder could read functionally there, you'd better use a deleted data recovery freeware to retrieve your deleted files back for free .
This data recovery freeware always would help easily retrieve the deleted files back successfully.
But, if this recorder cannot be read there normally, your recorder may get some problems. If these deleted files are very, very important, you'd better consult an expert.

I have An ERR code. How can I get rid of it without deleting all the files??


The ERR message can only be corrected by holding in the DISP/MENU and STOP buttons for two seconds, which results in ALL the material on the recorder being erased. It will say (FOR) for a few minutes while it is erasing everything, then will work again.
