Cannot play voice recordings on computer

I cannot get my voice recordings to play on my computer. I have it set up in MSC mode and no file called "recording" comes up and the file that I think are them will not play with Nero,Media Player, Yahoo or any of my other music files. Is there some software I need just to get my voice recordings to work?

My Sansa C250 has worked great for about two years, up until now. I have over two hundred songs on it, it's a two gig. The thing is, no computer will recognize the files on it. It will recognize voice...


Sandisk about this problem songs not being recognized on the computer but still on the player:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/447
Use this links as main help thread.

The standard connection type of C200 series is MTP = Media Transfer Protocol. In this mode you can see the connected device as a portable player.

Songs that are put on the player in UMS = Universal Mass Storage mode (also called MSC = Mass Storage Class), seeing the device as a removable disk can only be seen in the players' UMS mode and vice versa.

Check the setting of the USB mode on the display of the C250:

Main Menu
> Settings / USB / Autodetect or MSC mode

Autodetect = MTP mode: computer sees the player Sansa C250.
MSC mode: computer sees a removable disk.

Now 2 things could have happened:

1. Music is put on the player in MSC mode and now the player is
connected in MTP mode or vice versa.

2. There are bad sectors or corrupted files are transferred on the players' removable disk.
  • In case of bad sectors a recovery is possible: in MSC mode perform check disk as told in the link above.

  • In case of corrupted files a format of the device is needed. First a backup of all data has to be made. Next perform format. This can be done in 2 ways:
Using disk management:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/107
Using Windows Media Player:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/444

Option 2. having problems with the disk or data on the players' disk can also be solved by updating the firmware.
For firmware update see link:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/315
Remember: before updating backup the data from player to the computer.

When more help is needed just post a comment.

Mikomi ET858 digital voice recorder suddenly switched from saving files as .WAV to .ACT, whatever that is. Can play interviews on machine itself, but can't save them to computer. Help! How do I switch it...


Hi all,

I recently bought this little headache of a dictation machine to help me with my Law revision. Had similar problems but have worked out the following:

The machine appears to have 2 modes of recording - LP and SP. When the machine is in LP mode, it appears to be a format for the machine itself to allow for longer record time. Because of this individual format it will not play back on computers. If, however, you change it to SP mode (from what I can ascertain from the VERY unhelpful user manual is 'high quality recording' i.e. standard WAV format) it saves the file in a .wav format which is playable on computers.

To switch it from LP to SP (this is on my dictation machine only - i take absolutely no responsibility for breakages etc):

Turn on
Press 'M' to cycle to 'REC' mode
Use the Volume control to cycle between SP, SP VOR (no idea what VOR is i'm afriad), LP and LP VOR
Record as usual.

I've made test recordings on both SP and SP VOR and both save to WAV format and can be played back through a computer.

If anyone knows what VOR is then please shout back.

Hope this helps.

The video and voice recording on my sansa e260 stopped working.


You should not reformat the player unless you want to clear the mp3 player completely - erasing all music, recording, and other files completely.

Once you are done recording, the Sansa takes time trying to save the recorded files - it appears that it is freezing, but give it some time - it is just "thinking."

If the recorded files suddenly disappear, it is because the Sansa player has two modes - MSC mode and MTP mode. Files that appear in MTP mode will not appear in MSC mode and vice versa. If the recordings do not show up, go into your settings menu and switch the USB Mode.

How to import Olympus WS 110 audio files to computer.


Audio files need the right codecs to play them. Windows media player generally needs these to be added. Download the K-Lyte CODEC pack from the Major Geeks website. Always use the advanced mode when installing them, as they do like to change your browser settings or change your browser completely if you do the normal way.

Sansa c240 mp3 player not cooperating


I had the same problem. The easiest fix is to change the USB setting to MSC mode from the default is MTP mode. On some unit this is easier said then done because their is no USB setting option. I contacted Sandisk and they said that I needed to update the firmware. I found two solutions. First, try connecting to another computer. For some reason I was able to connect to my wife's laptop and was able to update the firmware. Second, manually forcing into MSC mode.
1. turn off the player
2. move hold switch to on (toward the record button)
3. hold rewind button (left side)
4. connect to computer while holding the rewind computer.

Hope this help.
