Question about Panasonic RR-XR320 Handheld Digital Voice Recorder
The only way to convert VM1 files to anything else is to use the Panasonic voice editing software. I have tried several other methods that claim to work but none of them have. The only way I was to do this was:
1.install a Windows XP operating system onto an old computer or get access to a Windows XP, Vista, or 2000.
2. I found an old Panasonic voice recorder off eBay that still had the software and purchased it (Panasonic RR-US470)
3. Installed the software
4. This is where it got tricky. The voice editing software doesn't recognize .vm1 files from other sources. The recorder and its software create its own file structure but if you put your own .vm1 files inside them, even with the same name, it still won't read it. Unless you do this.
A. Let's say you have 20 .vm1 files you want to convert you must first record 20 different voice recordings onto your voice recorder. These recordings can be like a second long.
B. Attach the voice recorder and move the new recordings to the folder using the software. The software will name the files MB001.vm1...MB002, etc. They will be hidden also.
C. Name your old files (the ones you want to convert to the same name as the 20 new recordings.)
D. Delete the new recordings from your computer and replace them with the files you want to convert. (the must have the same name).
E. Your software will now see the old files you want to convert. (On the software if you click outside the folder they are located and click back into it, you will now see the same files. It will still have the same duration as your new recordings but the file size will be bigger and you can listen to it and it will now be your old files.
F. Convert these to wave.
Once you get your .vm1 file converted smash your recorder and never use Panasonic ever again. There may be an easier way to do this, but I've tried many ways and nothing worked except this.

Since S3500 does not support txt files you can not read or edit them. However, go to www.getjar.com and locate your phone make and model and look for the progs. They are free or at the most on trial on time base
