Question about Olympus WS-100 Digital Voice Recorder

Is it possible to stop recording without opening a new file?

Hi, Is there a way I can stop dictating (rather than Pausing) and start again in the same file? It seems impossible, but thought I'd check. Thanks!

You can not do this with the Olympus ws-100, you need a dictation machine that has the editing function which allows you to easily insert, overwrite, partially erase files and continue on the same file, most of the digital dictation units have NEW FILE BUTTON , you will stay recording on the same file till you press new.
Look at Olympus DS-2300. Olympus DS-33300 or ds-4000.

How do I make a audio CD from my dictation machine


If you are already using your dictation machine then you don't need to install its software as its already installed. Now you only require Nero for burning files to CDs. You also require a CD writer installed on your pc. You shall know where your files are saved when you record through dictation machine. If you can't find the recorded files kindly comment back.

Loss of words during reording


I suggest that you allow little more silent time before pressing the pause or stop. also when you start regording again let it go for a second or two and then start talking.

you may also tap the mic pefore starting speaking, performers always tap the mic pefore starting to make sure its working.

Can i recover lost dictation?


Possible? YES, Easy? Not always.

First things first: DO NOT take any more dictations with the recorder that you want to recover files from in case you may quite possibly ruin your chances of voice memo file recovery.

Then connect your recorder to a PC with a recovery program installed. Photo Recovery Software (also recover Voice memos, audio and video files) is right what you need to use if you are running Windows. If you are Mac OS X users, turn to Data Recovery for Mac.

But you should remember - the more you use your recorder, the less likely you may be able to recover the deleted files back! So STOP using the device ASAP. Hope my answer is helpful to you. Best regards!

Olympus DS4000 recorder "new file" button broken


This is a classic: the 4-position-slide component (which includes the NEW button) is the weakness of the DS-4000. You need to get this replaced. If you are UK based, contact BES in Luton who will charge you circa GBP70 for the replacement.

Picking up dictation where we left off after playback DS 40 voice


Unfortunately with this recorder, if he hits the stop button and rewinds it will go back to the beginning of the file. He may want to look at our DS-2300 or DS-2400 recorders as they both have a feature on them of a NEW button which will allow him to stay in the same file until he presses NEW to create the next recording.

Is it possible to rewind and overwrite dictation with Olympus VN-2100PC


Unfortunately with this device the VN-2100PC it is not possible to rewind and overwrite any dictations that were done. Each time the record button is pressed and then the stop button is pressed it will create a new file. They may want to look for a DS-2300 or a DS-2400 recorder as these devices have the ability to rewind and allow you to dictate over previously recorded information in the same file. There is a button on these devices called "New" that allows you to stay within the same file until you press New to start the next audio file.

WS-300M Olympus Voice Recorder


you can rewind a tad and listen, but you can't overrecord, because a digital recorder writes audio information into a data file and saves it. you just can play it back again and record a new file. if you want to cut off a part of your recording, you have to edit the file in an audio editor. - as the olympus stores wma-files, you'll have to convert them into wav format first to edit them. i tried the 'switch' software successfully.
