Re: denpa mp38 digital recorder

The internal memory is the place where the recording itself would have been stored, so unfortunately there is no "extra" memory to cover mistakes such as this...that would be like every PC being shipped with two hard drives in case you deleted something!
However, all may not be lost. The most important thing is DO NOT MAKE ANY FURTHER RECORDINGS OR FORMAT THE UNIT till you have definitively ascertained that the recording is indeed irretrievable.
RECOMMENDED: Trawl the Web for a program called "SoftPerfect File Recovery," download it, and install it (it's a tiny program, about 250kb) - I know you can find it at
Read the help file and follow the instructions...with luck, you should be able to get your recording back.
FYI when you "delete" a file you do not erase it from the storage disk; all that happens is the first letter of the file name changes in the file structure, so the data can no longer be accessed as the device doesn't know where to look. So long as the data hasn't been overwritten by further recording or reformatting, invariably it can be retrieved...this is how the FBI catch all those nasty kiddie porn people out who think they've 'cleaned' their hard drives simply be hitting the delete key.
Hope this helps. If it doesn't then do a google search for 'data recovery software' and try another program. There are many (good) free ones out there, although most are designed to recover deleted photos from media cards. Good luck.
p.s. Would appreciate it if anyone can tell me how to turn on the backlight on my denpa mp-36 unit. I've read the manual and can't find it anywhere. I guess I'm missing that elusive button combination...

Hi Guys,
I have the same corrupted file, but you can recover it by using the GoldWave software. Just type"Goldwave" in google, follow the link and download the software, install it. From that software open the corrupted file, and then save it as a new copy. ( It will fix the problem when opening the file, where you can see it). They try to play the new saved file, shld be fine.
all the best.

Transfer datas from Denpa to computer

Might be able to help you out but need some more information...
1. What type of PC (IBM/Mac) do you have?
2. What OS (Windows 95/98/NT/ME/XP/Vista/Leopard/Linux etc.) are you operating on?
3. Do you have CD that shipped with unit and USB cable?
4. Does your computer 'see' the unit as a removable drive when connected?
5. What model Denpa is it?
I'll check back in a few days to see if you're still looking for a solution - have you successfully transferred files before?

Can't erase

I think I know your problem, but if it doesn't work I'm sorry. I'm not the best when it comes to technology. Don't play it while you're erasing and hold down the erase button 'til you here a beep. I hope this works.
