"full" message I downloaded all the files to my computer.  When I tried to record again, my Olympus WS-100 gives me a "full" message.  I checked and there are no files left in the recorder.  Any help?

Re: "full" message

I had the same problem; see earlier post about record times. The "format" solution worked for me.

My WS 100 says FULL and won't either let me put it

The recorder should be formatted only by using the internal FORMAT function found in the recorder's Menu. Using a computer to format the recorder may corrupt or delete system files needed to run the recorder, so formatting via the computer is not recommended.
Individual files can be deleted from the recorder while it is connected to a computer without negative effects.

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."

Refer to your Owner's manual to re-format your recorder. Sometimes, recorder memory can become corrupted just as with any electronic memory media.

Lost owners manual to olympus digital voice recorder model ws 100

The recorded file comes up as a text document on my computer instead of a recording?  Do I need to download some sort of program on my computer?

Is it possible to stop recording without opening a new file?

you can not do this with the Olympus ws-100, you need a dictation machine that has the editing function which allows you to easily insert, overwrite, partially erase files and continue on the same file, most of the digital dictation units have NEW FILE BUTTON , you will stay recording on the same file till you press new.
Look at Olympus DS-2300. Olympus DS-33300 or ds-4000.

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.
