Question about Olympus WS-200S
I have deleted files on ws 200s so when I plug usb into imac it shows just dat files which it had at first. However, it does not 'empty' any space as it still shows full.
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.

the battery compartment from the recorder during that time. Otherwise data may be damaged.
