Re: Sony ICD-U60 - Will not play back on PC

On the internet, navigate to THIS PAGE, then select your operating system, where it says, "Select an operating system to see files:" in the center of the lower portion of the page (list of compatible systems shown below also), by selecting from the pull-down menu; then click on the appropriate link in the 'Download' column on the far right; then click the 'Download Now' icon with the earth and a green arrow pointing down on the far right, saving it to your desktop (or any location you prefer). Once the file downloads, double-click on the executable file you just downloaded, and follow the instructions. The result will be that your computer will now recognize and correctly deal with files created by your recorder.

Do you know what the extension of the files are (The three letters after the dot in the filename)?

I would try VLC at it plays just about every multimedia file type out there. Or MPlayer at if VLC still doesn't work. One of those two programs should play your files.

Sony ICD-UX70/UX80 digital recorder...memory full problem

I solved the problem by connecting my Sony IC Recorder to the USB port on my McBook Pro computer and then emptying the trash can on the Mac computer. Visually (flashing red indicator light) and audibly (the recorder's sound that indicates something being erased), it was clear that mp3 files were finally, really being erased on the Sony recorder even though the recorder's own screen display had previously shown only empty folders and no files. Dragging files to the trash can doesn't really erase them unless you also empty the trash. All dragging to the trash can does is somehow mark the files in a way that, unfortunately, makes them invisible to Sony's file detection system.

Thank you for your response. I did finally solve the issue. I basically rebooted the device (removed the batteries). I had to reset the date and time though. The recordings remained intact. Thanks again

Sony IC Recorder ICD B600

To transfer recordings from the Sony ICD-B600 to Windows first buy a Radio Shack #42-2497 cable. Connect the cable from the recorder headphone jack to the computer microphone jack. In Windows XP follow the path: start, All Programs, Accessories, Entertainment, Sound Recorder. This small window will allow you to record 60 seconds of sound to a file. Get Article #82215 from the Microsoft web site. It will tell you how to make extended recordings. I was able to record 45 minutes continuously. The recorder is turned on by moving the 'HOLD' switch down. The recorder is turned off by moving the 'HOLD' switch up and waiting 2.5 seconds. Have fun.

Can't copy files from Sony ICD-SX57 Recorder to PC using Digital Voice Editor

I have the same issue with this recorder and Vista. According to Sony, the new version should be available for download "sometime this month" so I'm holding my breath. There is a way to get your files onto your computer, but it is pretty annoying when you have a bunch. But it works, so here it is. Select the specific recording that you want to save, then click the "email" button. If you use Outlook like me, an email window will open up and your selected file will be attached. YOu can then save it from the outlook email window without even actually sending it. Once it is saved on your computer, the DVE commands that allow you to convert the file do work, so have a ball! This sure does suck, no? Mark
