How do you format a RCA Digital Voice Recorder with Model# RP 5016A?

It has been some time, but if I remember right.

Insert (up to 256Mb) SD card in slot.
Turn the unit on (Press hold > (PLAY button)
Press Menu button
Use >>| (FastForward button) to select from "INT"ernal memory to "EXT"ernal memory
Press STOP button
A message "WAIT" will be displayed.

If I remember correctly, it will ask to format if it needs to. (Use >>| (FastForward button) or |<< (FastRewind button) to select "YES" or "NO".

You can alternately use a PC to format as FAT (Not FAT32) file system.

As you use the unit, it will create FOLDER1....FOLDER9. In fact it will create each folder, each time you go to view any of the 9 folders that aren't already there. Until all 9 folders are created.

I haven't had to format my 256Mb SD card. I just inserted it, and it was fine. (Even ones I had previously used with other data, the DVR will simply create folders "FOLDER1", etc. if not already there, and use them. )

I have a RCA Model RP 5016A digital recorder that i can't find a software for.When i connect it to the computer it won't play them beacause they are VOC files

Anyone who needs the software, just email me and I will send it. I can also send the user manual as a pdf. Together they are less than 800 K.

I tried to install the software on Vista and Windows 7, but it will not install. I copied the exe from my XP machine and it works fine.
