1 Answer

My recorder says "full" when i try to record, but i have deleted everything!!??!!

I bought this recorder a little over a year ago, and have been using it without any problems until recently.

currently, when i try to record anything, the "FULL" message flashes on the screen, and it won't let me record.

the problem is, i have DELETED everything on the recorder, following the instructions, as i have always done, since i bought it.

(and yes, i am sure i have deleted everything properly...)

has anyone encountered this problem before?

thanks.

    Same problem?

    I was using the recorder no problem, then after I had erased some of the recordings, my recorder would no longer record. I would try to record my class lectures and the screen would flash full. formatting it as suggested has seemed to help. Guess I'll know after I erase the next batch of classes and meetings.

Solution for this problem is to Format the recorder. Step 1 is to turn on unit. Step 2 Press Erase " Delete will flash on the display. Step 3 Press and hold Rec for 3 seconds "Format" will flash on the display. Step 4 Press and hold Erase, the completed percentage will show on the display (formatting is now in progress). Step 5 After formatting is completed the remaining time will show on the display. You should now be able to record. Make sure that you hold the ERASE button in step 4 until Formatting shows 100% complete.

I was about to throw my DV-01 away because of the same C: full signal. It appears that most modern SD cards are different to those of a few years ago or the device can not handle anything over 1 GB. When I use a small SD from 5 years ago the problem is solved.

take out the batteries , push the reset button, then put batteries back and try again.

If still not working properly , then it probably should go back to Olympus, if you bought it a few years ago , its probably out of warranty.

You can buy a newer model like the vn-6200-pc , which has way more memory and more features for much much less then it will cost to repair the vn-100 or vn-2000 , f

I deleted my audio files directly from the computer. Now that I try to record again, the device says that memory is full, even though I have no files on it. How do I reset it to record again?


To erase a selected file, first press the [ERASE] button. Next, press the [+] (plus) or [-] (minus) button to select "ERASE," and then press the [ERASE] or [OK] button.
To erase all files in a folder, first select the folder and press the [ERASE] button for three seconds or longer. Next, press the [+] (plus) or [-] (minus) button to select "ALL ERASE." Finally, press the [ERASE] or [OK] button.
NOTE:
The recorder should be formatted using only by using the internal FORMAT function found in the recorder's Menu. Formatting using the computer may corrupt system files needed to run the recorder, so computer formatting is not recommended. Individual files can be deleted using the computer with no negative effects.

Recorder says "PLEASE DOWNLOAD FILES," but there are no files to download


The DS-2 has a format option in the menu under submenu. After you choose start you will see a progress bar and it should return to full record time. Use on a MAC seems to cause the reduced record time more often than on a PC.
