Recovering deleted files from olympus VN-4100PC voice recorder

Chances are there to recover such kind of deleted files from your Olympus recorder.

First things first: DO NOT take any more videos or audio with the recorder that you want to recover files from in case you may quite possibly ruin your chances of voice memo file recovery.

Then connect your device to a PC, and have a try of Photo Recovery (also recover audio, voice memos, video files etc), a data recovery program which is good at recovering media files lost. If you are Mac OS X users, turn to Data Recovery for Mac.

Lastly, I hope you good luck. Again you should remember - the more you use your recorder, the less likely you may be able to recover the deleted files back! So STOP using the device ASAP.

Olympus digital recorder WS 110, keeps saying connect to pc

the only thing left to try is to try and format the device and see if you can restore it back to factory default settings. You go to the menu and to the format option. This will permanently remove any recordings you have done and as I said restore the device back to factory settings. If that doesn't work then you will probably need to send it to Olympus for repair service.

Can't seem to transfer files to computer

The memory is probably corrupt. Use the reformat feature from the menu. Any recordings will be lost.

Cannot play .HGL files once files have been downloaded to my computer

Unless you have specific software to play the .hgl files (you could do an internet search for "hgl player"+"audio" to try and find a standalone .hgl player if you want to try this route) then you'll need the program Converter 1.4 that comes on the CD shipped with the product. This software is a program that decodes the compressed recording file (the .hgl) and converts it into a .wav file that can be played using most any PC media player; from there, you can listen to it or recode it as an .mp3 or whatever you want to do with it.
Hope that helps.

Harbinger Decoder

Okay, I'll try and help you out...
1. Create new folder on desktop called 'recordings' or something similar i.e. easy to remember!
2. Connect unit to PC via USB cable and turn on the unit. If you slide the HOLD switch to the on position, you should get a message saying "PC LINK" on the display.
3. Locate the recording(s) that you want to decode. I don't know what model of denpa you have, so I can't be sure, but there are normally four folders (A, B, C, and D - there may also be an MP3 folder). The recordings are accessed by double-clicking my computer, then the removable disk icon that appeared when you plugged in and turned on, and then opening the folders that are present which contain the recording(s) you wish to decode.
4. Identify the recording(s) you wish to decode and copy them to your newly created desktop folder (right click the file/copy and then go into new folder and paste there).
5. Once you have copied the file(s) you want to decode, open the Converter program (programs - harbinger converter - converter 1.4).
6. In the program window click on the magnifying glass in the top box (source file) and browse to your new folder.
7. Select the file you wish to decode (I think you have to do them one at a time - just repeat the process for each one following these steps).
8. In the lower box (output file) enter the name you wish to use to identify the file so you can find it. Then click on the magnifying glass for the output file and browse to your newly created folder (this will then be where your converted files will be sent on decoding).
9. Click the 'decode' button in the lower left corner of the program window (I think it shows a picture of two different sized cogs side by side).
10. The file should then be decoded from its .hgl format to a (new) .wav format with whatever name you gave it. From here, you should be able to listen to the file on your PC using any common media player (i.e. Winamp/Media Player etc.) or recode it as an .mp3 if you want to save some hard disk space on your computer.
Repeat the process from step 6 for each file you want to decode.
Hope that helps and good luck.
