If your voice recorder has usb capability you should back it up to your computer first.

Yes you wiil. You are better off trying to save the corrupted file and try to repair it, instead of formatting your voice recorder.

How do i unlock the files


The lock function can be found in the menu, however if you did not go there to lock the files, chances are your memory is corrupted. You can reformat the memory from the menu but this will wipe out any recordings. If you need to recover the files, try PC Inspector, Smart recovery. This is a free download, just search google.

Hi, All Folders are locked and if you try to record its says READ ONLY CARD? I have 1 sound file on the card which i need. It won't play on the computer system either?


The memory has been corrupted. You will need to reformat the memory from the menu in order to use that memory card again. This will erase all files.
If you need to recover the file, download a free recovery program called pc inspector smart recovery, from http://www.snapfiles.com/get/smartrecovery.html

When I connect my voice recorder to my computer, it informs me that the files are corrupted and that the drive is not readable. I can play back the files on the device, but I can't transfer the files...


Well if you want to go the ghetto route you could always playback the files really close to a webcam or desktop microphone and use windows recorder to make .wav files which you can then convert to whatever type you need.

Plug in the Olympus DS-4000 handheld and the screen blinks erratically busy and then nothing pulls off of the card to the dictation module.


The memory is corrupted. You can reformat but that will delete all your files. If you need to recover the files, try PC Inspector Smart Recovery. I have had good success with that. Then you must reformat, or the problem will return. The problem is caused from static shocks to the recorder.
