    When I try to make the VOC file to exe file, a Warning Decoding window will say "Framesize is negative value". I cannot copy the file to anywhere. I get a message "Cannot copy A00000??: the file or directory is corrupted and unreadable". The model of the voice record is RCA RP5022B.

Here is something that has worked for me when nothing else would.

In Win XP, right click on the drive letter for the RCA DVR and select properties, tools, error checking. Click the "Check Now" button. Check both the "Automatically fix file system errors" and the "Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors" boxes. Then Start.

Usually, my file is repaired completely with no losses, but once in a while I end up losing segments of the audio. But having some is better than none.

Lastly, when I run into a problem like this, I always make it a point to reformat the drive after I salvage the files. If you don't, more files will get trashed in the future.

I hope this helps someone. Pass it on or post/link it to other sites.

SOURCE: Framesize is negative value

All I can say is, get used to it. Customer support will be of no help, at all. They;ll advise you to reformat, whcih will delete everything and does nto solve the problem. Then they will tell you to check your compatibility settings, which doesn't solve anything. I have this recorder, actually two of them and my brother in law has one. Two of them work fine, the toher does not. Sometimes it worls sometimes it doesn't. I wrote to support and told them I had reformatted numerous times without it helping. Guess what they said when they wrote back? They gave me instructions on how to reformat. They said I should backup my files so i would nto lsoe them. Well, I can't back them up if I can't get them off the recorder....I've ran into numerous people with the same problems and the same stories abotu customer support. SOme of the complaints date back over a year.

Files disappeared from maxtor one touch iii mini


Alrighty, I finally found the handy file undelete utility which I have successfully used in the past to undelete files on flash cards. The file is Restoration.exe, and it doesn't use an installer. Thus it is a completely stand-alone program. The author of this program says that it is compatible with all Windows OS through XP. It probably will work with Vista too. The program also is compatible with NTFS as well as FAT32 file systems. Here is a link to CNET.com where you can download it and then use it to try to recover the deleted files on your flash card:

Restoration

Once you have recovered the files on your flash card, copy and paste them to your hard disk. I never do cut and pastes from flash cards for fear of accidentally losing files. Copy and paste, and once you have verified that the files were successfully copied to your hard disk, then delete the files on your flash card if that is your preferred method. Yet I prefer to put the flash card back in my camera and then do a quick format of the card in order to delete all files on the flash card.

Anyway, hopefully this restoration utility will allow you to get those deleted images back. :-)

RCA Digital Voice Manager software for RP5120 "warning decoding"


Bad News... I spoke to AudioVox/RCA (800-894-0956 < Direct DVR Number) and they told me that once you get this notification of a bad file format, there is NOTHING that can be done.

I tried DOS, too. Nothing worked.

The only thing left to try is connecting the recorder to the computer via a cable from the line out of the DVR to the line in of the audio card, and record from there. I'm going to try this, then return the recorder, if possible. Mind you, I've gone through several of these recorders and all of them have had this problem... eventually.

The customer service person there at AudioVox/RCA was direct, helpful, but clear that I couldn't do anything but reformat the recorder. Though she didn't really seem to care, by her tone, one way or another. They were still reproducing this product even with the flaws that exist (they certainly did not take ownership of the problem... they said it was out of their control and the problem was just like a virus).
