Deleting the file is not the problem but if you tried to format the recorder from the PC then you have a problem ...try to reformat again when not connected to PC. If youv'e lost the manual you can get one at www.olympusamerica.com they are under "support."

I've deleted all my files. But when I try to record something new it says "memory full".


Try to format the memory, if the device support formatting function, use this tools. But if there aren't any formatting tools, you can format your memory card via PC.
Put off your memory card and format it (you sure there is no file anymore, do you?).
After formatting complete, put in your memory card in your recorder again.
I hope you can record something again.

Hope this help and if you feel helped RATE please.

Can you recover deleted files from the Olympus Recorder VN-4100PC? also, one of my files is unable to play. any way of recovering it?


YES, it is definitely possible to recover such kind of files deleted from your Olympus recorder.

First things first: DO NOT take any more videos or audio 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. I hope this will help. Best regards!

I deleted my audio files directly from the computer. Now that I try to record again, the device says that memory is full, even though I have no files on it. How do I reset it to record again?


To erase a selected file, first press the [ERASE] button. Next, press the [+] (plus) or [-] (minus) button to select "ERASE," and then press the [ERASE] or [OK] button.
To erase all files in a folder, first select the folder and press the [ERASE] button for three seconds or longer. Next, press the [+] (plus) or [-] (minus) button to select "ALL ERASE." Finally, press the [ERASE] or [OK] button.
NOTE:
The recorder should be formatted using only by using the internal FORMAT function found in the recorder's Menu. Formatting using the computer may corrupt system files needed to run the recorder, so computer formatting is not recommended. Individual files can be deleted using the computer with no negative effects.

I went to the command prompt. Deleted all files:
E:\> del *
Then I copied the MP3 files again in the T.sonic MP3 player. All MP3 files played fine after this.

Recorder says "PLEASE DOWNLOAD FILES," but there are no files to download


The DS-2 has a format option in the menu under submenu. After you choose start you will see a progress bar and it should return to full record time. Use on a MAC seems to cause the reduced record time more often than on a PC.
