Question about Olympus DS-40 Digital Voice Recorder

1 Answer

Help! My Voice recorder is stuck in Slow playback/record

Everything I record is slowed down when I press playback and I can't get it back to normal speed. I can see an "S" at the bottom of the screen, I assume this means "Slow".

How do I get back to normal?

    how do i get speed back to normal

  • mycroft26 Jan 05, 2009

    the ds 40 puts itself in slow mode (i have never changed anything in the menu) and it is impossible to return to normal speed, as the menu only offers "slow" or "fast"

SD Card Write Speed Too Slow


Hey Jack! Certainly you've found a solution by now but maybe some poor soul is seeking the solution like I was.I had my Pockettrax CX saying "Memory Full" although I'd deleted everything. What helped finally: I formatted the SD. Now I've got all the memory back. Don't know if that would help the recording speed. but maybe. IMPORTANT: SAVE ANY FILES on your LAPTOP before formatting the SD.Here's how to format the SD:Go to Menu.Click on "Common Menu"Scroll down until you get to "Format"Press "Yes""Formatting SD" comes up and, Voila,You've got more space.

I recorded my professors lecture and the recorder was right next to her, when I listen back I can barely hear a thing all there is is her voice but muffled because it sounds like a loud wind


During Playback you can press + or - buttons to adjust the volume. Maybe this is your problem. If you need more info watch video instructions chapters for Olympus on http://www.HandBookLive.com under Electronics-> Audio. There are 20 different video chapters. The info about + - buttons for volume during playback was chapter 7 (Playback)

Playback speed problems...


The Play button controls speed of play back. If you hold the button two long it changes the speed. Press Play and then release and press again until the speed you are looking for is obtained. Be careful not to push the play button mulitple times once it is correct.

Olympus DS30 voice recorder play speed issue


Hi, the solution to the problem seems to be the following. When u press play, once, you get 1x play. If whilst playing you press play a second time the DS-30 goes into slow play mode, and if you press a second time it goes into fast mode. For those of us who accidentally went into either fast or slow mode, just press the play button again, during playback, until "play" appears on the LCD screen. Apparently it is as simple as that.
