Olympus WS-200S Hi. My windows xp will not speak back to me when I transfer audio files to pc. Codecs are asked for. The olympus plays back fine, so the recording is good, there. On the computer it saves as data - I just see YYYYYYYYYY cont. - it opens up in notebook. I tried opening up in Windows Media Player but it says"codecs not found" Oh yes it works/plays back very well on my friends Windows Vista :( What do you suggest please? Linda

Try this solution from microsoft:
I can’t play a file that Windows Media Player supports. What should I do?Most likely, a required codec isn't installed on your computer. Typically, Windows Media Player automatically downloads any required codecs from the Internet and installs them. However, this may not happen for the following reasons:
• The necessary codec (typically, a non-Microsoft codec) isn't available on the codec server.
• You have an older version of the Player and your automatic codec-download option isn't enabled.
• The Internet security settings for your browser are set too high.
• You're not connected to the Internet.
If you have an older version of the Player (prior to Windows Media Player 9 Series), you can check your codec download setting by doing the following:
1.
In Windows Media Player, on the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Player tab.
2.
In the Auto upgrade area, make sure Enable automatic codec download is checked, and specify how often you want the Player to check for updates.
You can change your Internet security settings (if you are logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group) by doing the following:
1.
In Control Panel, open Internet Options.
2.
Click the Security tab, and then click Internet.
3.
In the Security level for this zone area, click Default Level.
If you can’t play the file after completing this procedure, restart your computer, and then try to play the file again.
If you still can’t play the file, try to play another file with the same file name extension. If you can play this file, then there is a problem with the file that you want to play. For more troubleshooting information, see the Windows Media Player Multimedia File Formats Web

Many video clips recorded by GZ-MG130 were stored in my old laptop (windows XP) and played well in with windows media player. 1)I have now transferred them to my new laptop ...


Hi Rajeeva.

To start try downloading updated codecs for Windows Media player, and install them onto the new laptop.

Use this link to download updated codes:Free-Codecs.com :: Download latest audio codecs

If that is not enough also update Windows Media Player on the new laptop. Link is below.

Windows Media Player 11.

Updating codecs should fix the problem already.

Files deleted from Olympus WS-200S - Can i get them back???


Unfortunately this recorder model is designed with flash memory and once the files are erased they are gone. There are some companies that do specialize in flash memory recovery (Olympus is not one of them). You can go to google and search for flash memory recovery specialists. However this is a very costly process as it involves sending the device to these companies for them to do the recovery process.

CANNOT TRANSFER AUDIO FILES FROM WS-100 OLYMPUS VOICE RECORDER TO PC (Windows XP)


I wrote this for the Olympus VN-3100PC although it may work with this device as well.

Try this:

This problem can typically be solved by unplugging the device from your computer's USB port and plugging it in to another USB port on the same computer.

Also be sure you have Olympus Digital Wave Player installed and open with your Transfer Options set to Auto Transfer. To do this, follow the steps below:

Open Digital Wave Player > select Transfer from the menu > select Transfer Options > under Auto Transfer, check the box which reads "Transfer all audio files after detecting Recorder."

Erasing


I had the same problem. I downloaded the instruction pamphlet at http://www.olympus.co.jp/en/support/imsg/vtrek/download/manual/ws/man_ws100_ws200s.pdf and reformatted the recorder. It seems to work fine now.

Formatting the Recorder (FORMAT)
If you format the recorder, all function settings will return to their defaults.
All files stored in the recorder will be deleted.
If you have important files that you want to save, connect the recorder to a computer and
transfer those files from the recorder to the computer before formatting the device.
1 Press the MENU button.
2 Press the FF or REW button to choose “FORMAT”.
3 When the PLAY button is pressed, “nO” is displayed.
4 Press FF or REW to select “yES”, and press the
PLAY button.
After “ARE yOU SURE” is displayed, “nO” will be displayed.
5 Press FF or REW to select “yES”, and press the
PLAY button.
“DONE” displays when formatting ends.
s It may take up to several tens of seconds to finish the initialization. Do not remove the battery or detach
the battery compartment from the recorder during that time. Otherwise data may be damaged.
s Never format the recorder from a PC.
s When the recorder is formatted, all the stored data, including locked files, are erased.
