Picking up dictation where we left off after playback DS 40 voice

My physician just got a DS 40 digital voice recorder. When he dictates and gets interupted he needs to playback to see where he left off. However. when he rewinds then listens, he is unable to pick up where he left off without changing folders. I have read the entire manual and do not see this information.

Unfortunately with this recorder, if he hits the stop button and rewinds it will go back to the beginning of the file. He may want to look at our DS-2300 or DS-2400 recorders as they both have a feature on them of a NEW button which will allow him to stay in the same file until he presses NEW to create the next recording.

Is it possible to rewind and overwrite dictation with Olympus VN-2100PC


Unfortunately with this device the VN-2100PC it is not possible to rewind and overwrite any dictations that were done. Each time the record button is pressed and then the stop button is pressed it will create a new file. They may want to look for a DS-2300 or a DS-2400 recorder as these devices have the ability to rewind and allow you to dictate over previously recorded information in the same file. There is a button on these devices called "New" that allows you to stay within the same file until you press New to start the next audio file.

Editing? Can dictation be paused, then go back part way and....


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.

Accidental erasing


Check all folders on the recorder. Sometimes dictation inadvertently goes into another folder. Also; if the recorder is disconnected from the computer too soon after the expected amt of time it takes to upload to computer, the files may become lost (in space?) This has happened to my physicians in the past. Must leave the recorder connected to the uploading doc until you are certain files have been uploaded. Best to bring up the Olympus download folder to be certain.

Problems with memory on Olympus DS-2


I've had the same issue. The surefire solution is to go into the Sub Menu and FORMAT. It wipes the entire internal memory clean -- so be sure you've offloaded everything you need. You'll also need to reset the recording quality, if you have a custom setting, because it defaults to the highest quality. But you'll have all your space back.
I believe when files are deleted via computer, the DS-2 doesn't update itself to recognize the space is freed up. That's why data is gone but memory is not freed.  Good luck.

Foot pedal


Make sure you are installing the Transcription version of the software not the Dictation version (Transcription version serial number starts with RTM and dictation starts with RDM). The foot pedal will not work with the dictation version of the software.
