Question about Olympus WS-300M Digital Voice Recorder

Open Question

Can't listen to Olympus WS-300 files on my Mac

When the Olympus files come up on my screen and I press play, nothing happens. I have downloaded Flip4Mac WMV, which is supposed to be the Mac-friendly version of the old Windows Media Player but the files still won't play. They work fine on my PC, but I'm not using my PC. I want to copy the audio files onto my Mac and play them but I can't. Olympus Tech support told me to install Windows Media Player for Mac but Flip4Mac is it, I'm told. Help!

try this solution from microsoft:
I can’t play a file that Windows Media Player supports. What should I do?Most likely, a required codec isn't installed on your computer. Typically, Windows Media Player automatically downloads any required codecs from the Internet and installs them. However, this may not happen for the following reasons:
• The necessary codec (typically, a non-Microsoft codec) isn't available on the codec server.
• You have an older version of the Player and your automatic codec-download option isn't enabled.
• The Internet security settings for your browser are set too high.
• You're not connected to the Internet.
If you have an older version of the Player (prior to Windows Media Player 9 Series), you can check your codec download setting by doing the following:
1.
In Windows Media Player, on the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Player tab.
2.
In the Auto upgrade area, make sure Enable automatic codec download is checked, and specify how often you want the Player to check for updates.
You can change your Internet security settings (if you are logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group) by doing the following:
1.
In Control Panel, open Internet Options.
2.
Click the Security tab, and then click Internet.
3.
In the Security level for this zone area, click Default Level.
If you can’t play the file after completing this procedure, restart your computer, and then try to play the file again.
If you still can’t play the file, try to play another file with the same file name extension. If you can play this file, then there is a problem with the file that you want to play. For more troubleshooting information, see the Windows Media Player Multimedia File Formats Web

SOURCE: CANNOT TRANSFER AUDIO FILES FROM WS-100 OLYMPUS

I wrote this for the Olympus VN-3100PC although it may work with this device as well.

Try this:

This problem can typically be solved by unplugging the device from your computer's USB port and plugging it in to another USB port on the same computer.

Also be sure you have Olympus Digital Wave Player installed and open with your Transfer Options set to Auto Transfer. To do this, follow the steps below:

Open Digital Wave Player > select Transfer from the menu > select Transfer Options > under Auto Transfer, check the box which reads "Transfer all audio files after detecting Recorder."

How to Watch WMV on MAC Easily


<p><span>WMV, Windows Media Video, is a compressed video file format for several proprietary codecs developed by Microsoft. As we know that there are so many videos with wmv formats, sometimes you download them and then open them , but all you get is a lot of crazy code. Are you looking for an easy to watch wmv videos, especially as a mac user ? This article is about how to play WMV files on Mac so that you can watch WMV on a Mac computer, introduces three most popular ways to play WMV videos and some WMV conversion apps.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>Tips: If you want to convert WMV videos, a video converter is needed here. <a href="http://www.macvideoconverter.org/">video converter mac</A> can converts video files such as MPEG1, MPEG2, MP4, 3GP, 3G2, AVI, Mpeg, HD video formats including MKV, TOD, MOD, TS, TP and TRP. and output video formats including MOV, FLV, MP4, AVI, and MPG.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><b><span>1. Watch WMV on Mac with VLC Media Player</SPAN></B><br> <p><span>VLC is a media player like QuickTime and Windows Media Player. Many view VLC is a good alternative to the these traditional media players because VLC is available for many different operating systems and is an open source software project that is supported by many dedicated programmers across the world.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>Until recently, only experimental versions of VLC for Mac OS X could play WMV videos, but no longer. VLC for Mac OS X now supports WMV video. You can download VLC from the VLC media player for Mac OS X download page.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>There are three types of downloads on this page: "Universal Binary", "Intel Package", and "PowerPC Package". The Universal Binary should work on any Mac, the Intel Package is meant for newer Intel-powered Macs, and the PowerPC Package is meant for older Macs that use the PowerPC processor. If you are unsure of whether you've got an Intel Mac or a PowerPC Mac, use the Universal Binary Package.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>Once downloaded, double click on the dmg file, wait for a Finder window to open, and then drag the VLC icon to your "Applications" folder. In addition, VLC media Player supports audio and video formats (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, mp3, ogg, ...) as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><b><span>2. Watch WMV on Mac with Windows Media Player</SPAN></B><br> <p><span>Windows Media Player is available for Apple Macintosh computers. Microsoft no longer maintains or supports their WMP for Mac software, but they still provide it for you to download. You can download the software at Microsoft's website.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>When you go to the Windows Media Player 9 for Mac download page, you'll be given a choice between a .bin file and a .hqx file. If you have an older Mac, you should download the .hqx file. If you don't, then it doesn't really matter. Just make sure you get the English version.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><b><span>3. Watch WMV on Mac with Flip 4 Mac</SPAN></B><br> <p><span>As mentioned in the above that Microsoft won't upgrade windows media player 9, Microsoft did offer an alternative for Mac users: Windows Media Components for QuickTime Flip4Mac, which is developed by Telestream. With this QuickTime component, you can play WMV and WMA files directly in QuickTime Player and watch streamed WMV videos.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>If you just want to play WMV files on Mac, you can choose one of the above ways to do it. We recommend VLC player considering its powerful functions. But for converting WMV videos, this video converter mac will be a good choice, it is such an powerful software that it can act as <a href="http://www.macvideoconverter.org/guide/flv-converter-for-mac.html">flv converter for mac</A>, mp3 converter mac, <a href="http://www.macvideoconverter.org/guide/avi-converter-mac.html">avi converter mac</A>, mp4 converter mac, Mac MKV Converter, etc.</SPAN><span></SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN>

Best way about playing and converting MPG/MPEG files on Mac


To play an MPG file, a QuickTime player on Mac couldn’t fully satisfied. If you have an MPG file and you want to play it on your Mac, you need to download some components for Mac players or some other media players. If you want to edit this MPG file in iMovie, you need to convert this MPG file into MOV format first, and then edit it.
If you only want to play your MPG file, here we recommend two components for QuickTime Player. The most popular components for Mac players on market are Perian and Flip4Mac. The first solution is download one from either official website.
perian_lg.jpg
Perianis an open source plug-in which enables QuickTime to play several popular video formats not supported natively by QuickTime on Mac OS X, i.e. AVI, DIVX, FLV, MKV, GVI, VP6, and VFW. If your MOV file is still on strike, try to uninstall your old QuickTime Version and download the latest one QuickTime 7.6.
Flip4Mac is for watching Windows Media files (.wma and .wmv) directly in QuickTime Player and viewing Windows Media content on the Internet using a Web browser. It’s not suitable for playing a MOV file.

How to edit and convert MPG/MPEG files to MOV?


If you want to do more and you want to edit it on iMovie or upload onto YouTube, you need a media converter for Mac to convert MPG/MPEG files to MOV formats. Mac MPG to MOV Converter will show you how to achieve it within several easy steps.
Download and install MPG/MPEG to MOV Converter for Mac here.

Step 1: After this Mac MPG/MPEG Converter is running , just click “ADD” button on the top, and choose your MPG or MPEG file you want to convert. If you have several MPG files and you want to put them together and get a complete MOV file, just check all the files and check the box in front of Merge into one.

Step 2: Click the “format” button on the thumbnail, select “Common Video” and Choose ‘MOV-QuickTime (*.mov)’ from the dropdown list . If you have no idea what kind of formats that your device supports, just choose according to the device’s name.

Step 3: Before pressing Convert button, we advise you check the setting first. You can change the settings manually, also you can use the original settings, which will work just perfect.

Step 4: If you have no use for editing MPG/MPEG videos, just press “Start” and begin to convert MPG video to MOV for your Mac.

Tips:
What is MOV?
MOV is a file extension used by the QuickTime-wrapped files. The format was created by Apple Computer to work with multimedia files. MOV is a container format and can contain video, animation, graphics, 3D and virtual reality (VR) content or text (for subtitles, for example).
