Question about Sony ICD-UX80 Handheld Digital Transcriber / Recorder
I have a Sony ICD-UX70/UX80 digital recorder.
The recorder has 5 empty folders but will not let me record. The recorder responds w/ "Memory Full" when I attempt to record.
I've successfully used this recorder for approx 2 months...recording, moving recorded files to iTunes, etc. The folders are empty...no files present.
There doesn't appear to be a way to reset or reformat the device.
Any suggestions?? I also have a similar problem, where I deleted files by dragging them to the recycle bin on a Mac. The files aren't present on the recorder, but the space is still taken up on it. So I need to reformat it. Any suggestions??
My model is ICD-UX71F Sony
I solved the problem by connecting my Sony IC Recorder to the USB port on my McBook Pro computer and then emptying the trash can on the Mac computer. Visually (flashing red indicator light) and audibly (the recorder's sound that indicates something being erased), it was clear that mp3 files were finally, really being erased on the Sony recorder even though the recorder's own screen display had previously shown only empty folders and no files. Dragging files to the trash can doesn't really erase them unless you also empty the trash. All dragging to the trash can does is somehow mark the files in a way that, unfortunately, makes them invisible to Sony's file detection system.

Hold down the menu button scroll to detail memory and hit enter scroll to format and hit enter hit erase all data this is the only way i have found that works.
