RCA RP5022B digital voice Recorder

I was listening to a recorded file when for approximately 24 minutes when that which I was recording stopped and all I could hear was a "click, click, click..." that continued for the duration of the recording. On trying to copy this file into my computer at home, using the software provided by RCA, Iwas unable to copy it. I am receiving an error meassage stating that the "Framesize is negative".

I did realize that the date on the recorder had somehow been changed to another date 2007.

Do you have any ideas?

SOURCE: RCA voice recorder problem

I let my rechargeable batteries run down before I closed a file. When I later transfered my file to the computer to the RCA Digital Manager program, I could do nothing and got the "Code Warning" message.
I left my DVR plugged into the USB cable and formatted my "removable drive G" which was my DVR. After that when I tried to turn on my DVR I got a blinking message "format." In desperation I pushed in the button for deleting a file from my DVR steadily for about five seconds. Voila! Everything came back to normal. I was able to turn my files into exe. files once again.

SOURCE: RCA Digital Voice Manager software for RP5120 "warning decoding"

Bad News... I spoke to AudioVox/RCA (800-894-0956 < Direct DVR Number) and they told me that once you get this notification of a bad file format, there is NOTHING that can be done.

I tried DOS, too. Nothing worked.

The only thing left to try is connecting the recorder to the computer via a cable from the line out of the DVR to the line in of the audio card, and record from there. I'm going to try this, then return the recorder, if possible. Mind you, I've gone through several of these recorders and all of them have had this problem... eventually.

The customer service person there at AudioVox/RCA was direct, helpful, but clear that I couldn't do anything but reformat the recorder. Though she didn't really seem to care, by her tone, one way or another. They were still reproducing this product even with the flaws that exist (they certainly did not take ownership of the problem... they said it was out of their control and the problem was just like a virus).

Your best bet is to play the recordings through the headphone connector to a pc audio line-in connector and capture the audio using something like Audacity. Then output them using audacity to mp3 to play on your mp3 player.

These units are notorious for their failing USB feature.

on XP try the "<" circle on the system tray and look for the USB device manager, disconnect from there.
If it is not there, or older systems try Start, Control Panel, System icon, Hardware Tab, Device Manager button. Find the Universal Serial Bus controllers, right click on the Device and select disable in the floating menu. that should allow you to remove the device safley.
