I've had the same issue. The surefire solution is to go into the Sub Menu and FORMAT. It wipes the entire internal memory clean -- so be sure you've offloaded everything you need. You'll also need to reset the recording quality, if you have a custom setting, because it defaults to the highest quality. But you'll have all your space back.
I believe when files are deleted via computer, the DS-2 doesn't update itself to recognize the space is freed up. That's why data is gone but memory is not freed.  Good luck.

Correct full memory message on olympus 4000 recorder


You need to erase some files. If there are no files, the memory may be corrupted. From the menu go to sub menu, then format. This will clear the memory.

On my Olympus DS-2, although I have erased all my files the recorder shows that that there is little or no room for recording. This is the first time this has happened to me.


The amount of room available on the Olympus DS2 are determined by two things:

1. Avaiable Memory
2. Recording Mode

With that said, if you have formatted (erased) the files on the recorder and there is little recording room left, you will need to change your recording mode. I would recommend changing it to SP mode.

I hope this helps.

Ds-30/ file recovery ?


Unfortunately this recorder is designed with flash memory and once you erase a file it is gone. There may be some companies (olympus is not one of them) that specialize in flash memory recovery but it is a very costly process and involves you sending the recorder to them to perform this operation.
You can go to google and search for flash memory recovery specialists.

I don't know how to erase the recorded data on my DS-2 recorder.


Select the file, then press erase and follow the display. If you hold down erase, you should get an erase all option. Also you can select Format in the menu.

The same problem "Read memory only". The best solution is : submenu/format/start

Good Luck

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.
