Question about Audio Players & Recorders

2 Answers

We have downloaded the software for our MAC X so that we can load the recorded material into the program to convert to wave files. We are using a Swann USB 2.0 card reader. We can't get the computer to read the data. The card reader reads other cards such as from a digital camera but not the s-d cards from the zoom. When these cards are in the reader the computer doesn't even display an icon recognizing the card reader. What do we do?

I found some useful formating instructions at http://osx.tribe.net. Note: FAT 16 only supports 2 GB or less. I had no problems reading FAT 16 formatted SD cards in Leopard. I revised the instructions a bit:
To format the SD card, you will need the path to the SD card device and the SD card device number.
1. Insert the SD Card into a card reader.
2. If you don't know how to find the device number of the SD Card, here is one way to do it:
2b. Open Disk Utility
2c. Highlight the SD Card device (upper icon), not the SD Card volume (lower icon)
2d. Click Erase at the top of the window
2e. Select Volume Format: MS-DOS (FAT) Click Erase... > Click Erase
The SD Card Volume Name will change to the UNIX device number e.g. "disk5s1". Note this number as it will change by itself to "Untitled". It is now formatted in MS-DOS FAT 32. We need to reformat it in FAT 16.

Once you have the device number of the SD Card, you need the path to the SD card device.
3. For my Mac, the path to devices is "/dev". In a terminal window: type "cd /dev" and hit the "Return" key to go to the "dev" directory. Then type "ls" (with a lower case L) and "Return" key. You should see the SD Card device number listed.

Formatting the SD Card in FAT 16:
4. In Disk Utility, highlight the SD Card device and click Unmount at the top, not Eject. The desktop icon of the SD card will disappear.
5. Go to the Terminal window. Be careful to type the following command with the correct letter case and spacing. Again, make sure you type the correct device number and path as you can very easily erase your hard drive in UNIX.
Type the command:
newfs_msdos -F 16 (path to SD Card device)/(SD Card device number)
e.g. newfs_msdos -F 16 /dev/disk5s1
and hit the "Return" key.
6. If you get just a new prompt (or a prompt with some warnings, e.g. below), the command executed successfully. You can remove the SD Card; it is now formatted in FAT 16. You can verify this in Disk Utility after mounting the SD Card.
If you get some instructions on the newfs_msdos command with a new prompt, the command did not execute. Make sure you enter the command with the correct case and spacing. Hint: to re-enter a previous command you typed, hit the up arrow repeatedly. For more information, type: "man newfs_msdos". Scroll with arrow keys. Type "q" to quit and return to prompt.

When you load the files onto the Windows computer, you need to have them converted to mp3 format. That way you can load it onto your mac/ipod/mp3 player. There is no software, as far as i'm aware of, for a mac for this product. I have the same problem

Converting a .voc file to a wav or mp3


You have the Creative labs own compression file there. There are several Programs that can convert this for you and many of them are free. If this is something you will be doing a lot of you might pay for a better designed program. If it is a one time thing go to this link http://www.partnersinrhyme.com/pc/pcConvert.shtml and download a free program to do the converting for you.

Although a lot of people say they can't find a program on there to fix their solution so, instead go to this site.
http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/downloads.aspx?product=23
Down load the program and go from there.
If you are on a mac you can run windows from the program Parallels and then work it in the windows environment.

Convert ds2 file to dss


Best option is to get the person using the recorder which creates the .ds2 files, which is likely to be an Olympus DS-5000, to set the recorder to record audio in "classic mode" which will produce .dss files. Here is a YouTube video on how to set the DS-5000 to record in classic mode.
