Re: System Error

It would appear that the files needed to operate the recorder have been deleted and need to be uploaded to the recorder... if you dont have them on your computer, then you will need to send to repair center

I can' t tranfer my files from the recorder to pc.

Did you install the Olympus software? If not, go to my computer and look for a removable disc drive. Browse that drive to copy your files.
