Question about RCA RP5020 Digital Voice Recorder
When I go to copy and past I receive a message that reads:
Framesize is negative value.
I will not let me delete file either.
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.
