Re: Dictation file not playing - jumps forward as if...
Is the machine ran all electronic meaning no moving parts
it is electronic and some mechinical moving parts
if i was to guess i am sure it is the drive belt for the machine, you maybe able to contact the manufacture and find out how much the belt is and do it your self, you will neeed the book on that type of repair too, but if you take somee where they do that type of work you will be paying them money for the products materails and belt and they keep every thing and yoou get charged for everything, like the manual, belt, or belts, computer time if they need it, shipping and handling fees, shop fee.
and than it maybe cheaker to buy a new one without anytype of moving parts and than you only have to were about power source.

There are two types: Cassette and Digital. Which one (Model #) do you have?
In the cassette model, press ERASE and Fast Forward. Failing that, you may need to record over the whole tape.
The Digital modells will allow you to erase one file at a time. You may have to press PLAY and then ERASE while the file is playing. If that does not work, press ERASE at the beginning of the file. It will ask you if you are sure you want to erase it. If YES, then press ERASE again.
In either case, the erased files are not recoverable.
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 recently bought this little headache of a dictation machine to help me with my Law revision. Had similar problems but have worked out the following:
The machine appears to have 2 modes of recording - LP and SP. When the machine is in LP mode, it appears to be a format for the machine itself to allow for longer record time. Because of this individual format it will not play back on computers. If, however, you change it to SP mode (from what I can ascertain from the VERY unhelpful user manual is 'high quality recording' i.e. standard WAV format) it saves the file in a .wav format which is playable on computers.
To switch it from LP to SP (this is on my dictation machine only - i take absolutely no responsibility for breakages etc):
Press 'M' to cycle to 'REC' mode
Use the Volume control to cycle between SP, SP VOR (no idea what VOR is i'm afriad), LP and LP VOR
Record as usual.
I've made test recordings on both SP and SP VOR and both save to WAV format and can be played back through a computer.
If anyone knows what VOR is then please shout back.
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.
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.
