Question about Olympus WS-100 Digital Voice Recorder

USB port How the heck do you remove the battery compartment to get to the USB port? I have been pulling on it trying to remove it and it just will not come off. Is there a trick or what am I doing wrong? I don't want to break it.

Re: USB port

You have to first turn off the device, elsewhere you wouldn't be able to remove the battery compartment.
After that, pull it hard and it will get off.

Lanier p-155 won't turn on

Some times the battery contact need to be pulled out a little bit. they are located down inside the battery compartment. You can stick a small screwdriver under the battery contact and bend it upward for better contact. If that doesn't work try removing the back cover and tightening the grounding screw, which is a silver screw located by the motor pulley hole. Sometimes this screw loosens up and then the ground is lost to the entire unit

Window 98 Professional does recognize Panasonic RR-US395 since it was removed from the usb port accidentally before being removed properly. I can see that the recorder is connected but can't find the files...

Windows 98 Professional?

I don't think there is such a version. It's probably either Windows 98 or Windows XP Professional.

If a reboot does not help, the simplest thing to try is to reinstall the device driver registry entries for the USB port.

Assuming you have Windows XP, right-click "My Computer" and select "Manage". Under "System Tools", select "Device Manager". If Windows is detecting problems with any of the device drivers, the Device Manager entry will be flagged with a exclamation point caution sign. Otherwise, you can try removing all of the entries under "Universal Serial Bus controllers". To remove the entry, right-click it and select "Uninstall". Remember, this only removes the entry from the registry. Unless the drivers are corrupted or missing, you will likely not need the install disk to reinstall the entry. Once you are done, reboot and Windows will detect the USB controller(s) does not have an entry and will prompt you to reinstall it. Take the option to let Windows find the drivers for you. If this procedure does not work, try uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers for the device. If that does not work, you likely have a hardware problem - bad cable, bad connection, etc.

If you do indeed have Windows 98, it's been a while, but the above procedure should be similar.

Ask your dealer, the one you bought it from. They may suggest an easy fix or guide you best on how to get it repaired, or at the very least suggest a place near you to have it repaired. If your dealer doesn't know, ask any Zoom dealer for repair info. Meanwhile, I assume you've checked your battery compartment to make sure the terminal connections are not loose (and of course that you've tried new batteries - :) ). Also, check Menu>Battery to see if alkaline or nickel batteries is checked. Finally, try removing your SD card and re-inserting, (even re-formatting the card, perhaps, but trying merely re-inserting first). But make sure any songs/info on the card are backed up first, because you will lose info if re-formatting the card. (For that matter, you could try a new card.)

USB not being recognised by pc

what can happen is that the voltage supplied to the usb port is not enough to power the recorder to transfer data, assuming you have tried other usb ports, and tried leaving other connected peripherals out connected to a usb port, it is always better to use a mains powered usb hub when connecting things like mp3 players and digital recorders as some motherboards, especially low powered units struggle with some peripherals.
