SOURCE: Recorder says "PLEASE DOWNLOAD FILES," but there are no files to download

The DS-2 has a format option in the menu under submenu. After you choose start you will see a progress bar and it should return to full record time. Use on a MAC seems to cause the reduced record time more often than on a PC.

If you format the recorder, all function settings will return to their defaults.
All files stored in the recorder will be deleted.
If you have important files that you want to save, connect the recorder to a computer and
transfer those files from the recorder to the computer before formatting the device.
1 Press the MENU button.
2 Press the FF or REW button to choose “FORMAT”.
3 When the PLAY button is pressed, “nO” is displayed.
4 Press FF or REW to select “yES”, and press the
PLAY button.
After “ARE yOU SURE” is displayed, “nO” will be displayed.
5 Press FF or REW to select “yES”, and press the
PLAY button.
“DONE” displays when formatting ends.

SOURCE: WS-110 memory full but no files

well, i resolved this myself by going to the sub-menu, and formatting the recorder to its original state. thankfully, i backed up the files on my computer first, so i didn't lose any data, although i did have to go in and re-set all my preferences on the recorder.
lesson: don't MOVE files from recorder to computer. copy them instead, and do the actual erasing from the physical recorder itself.
i don't know if this was the most elegant solution, but at least it did get my recorder up and running again. i'd love to hear if there is a better resolution out there.

SOURCE: how do i REALLY erase on my olympus ws-300m?

Suggestion is to format the device to remove all unwanted data permanently.

1 While the recorder is stopped, press the MENU button for 1 second or longer. The menu opens
2 Press the + or – button to chooseSubmenu and then + button to “Format”.
3 Press the OK button. The “Cancel” indicator flashes.
4 Press the + button to choose “Start”.
5 Press the OK button. After the “Data Will Be Cleared” message is on for two seconds, “Cancel” will turn on.
6 Press the + button again to choose “Start”.
7 Press the OK button. Formatting begins and an indicator flashes
on the display.
“Format Done” displays when formatting ends

SOURCE: Memory Full

Go to the menu and go to the format option and press enter. This worked for me :). Make sure you have everything backed up.

It says "Memory Full" but


If you are sure you have erased all files in all folders then it would not do any harm to run FORMAT from the menu.

This may well clear your "Memory Full" message and get your device working again.

Hope this helps.

I deleted my audio files directly from the computer. Now that I try to record again, the device says that memory is full, even though I have no files on it. How do I reset it to record again?


To erase a selected file, first press the [ERASE] button. Next, press the [+] (plus) or [-] (minus) button to select "ERASE," and then press the [ERASE] or [OK] button.
To erase all files in a folder, first select the folder and press the [ERASE] button for three seconds or longer. Next, press the [+] (plus) or [-] (minus) button to select "ALL ERASE." Finally, press the [ERASE] or [OK] button.
NOTE:
The recorder should be formatted using only by using the internal FORMAT function found in the recorder's Menu. Formatting using the computer may corrupt system files needed to run the recorder, so computer formatting is not recommended. Individual files can be deleted using the computer with no negative effects.

Erasing Files


when you copy the files to your computer the files are still in the ws-100, you have to erase them in the ws-100 buttons after that.
