I started recording and then when I looked at it a short while later it read 'REPAIR'. Does anyone knows what this means?! It doesn't say anywhere in the instructions. It's also said 'CHECK' sometimes. Now it's appears to be working okay again, but I don't trust it. Can anyone help? Should I get a new one?

The culprit on Sony's variable-speed playback units is often the variable speed control itself. Once this goes, there's little that can be done other than Sony repair. And given the age of this product, you may be better off replacing it.
I had this problem too recently. The unit needs a firmware update. The only hitch there, is that you need to send it in to the D&M Pro (Marantz Professional Equipment) Service Center to get the update. No cost to my knowledge, other than shipping.
The folder lock can oly be solved by chosing the option "format" in the sub-menu. But please copy the *.dss - files still resting at your card at your harddisk first.
When the recorder finishes the format procedure, all folders will be unlocked again.
The "Read-Only-Failure" will occur again at recorders with differend user profiles, when you put the switched-off recorder into the docking station first and switch the power button to "on". So avoid this constellation!
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.
I attempted to open an audio file in my computer via the port on the recorder. it tried to open the file in Adobe Audition but could not read the file. Afterwards when I attempted to play the files on the recorder it would not register the files as a track exsisting on the machine. huh? wuh happened?
