Hi there, I suspect that you may have an additional SD card in your machine? If this is the case the folders will be duplicated, there will probably be two lots of folders called A B C D E. You will have to navigate to the correct folders yourself. It is not an error , just the way voice recorders/ dictaphones are .
My answer is based on my use of these machines over 15 years. My Olympus VP670 does the same thing
It maybe that my assumption about the SD card is incorrect in which case please add more detail and resubmit the query
if it came with a driver..just run the driver again in the computer and be sure the installation goes OK ..After that restart the PC ..and plug the recorder..it should see it if this was the issue ..Another thing is to plug the device powered and on ..and check the screen of the recorder ..cause sometimes you have to confirm the pc connection ..or ..card reading ..from it .. If you do not have a driver just check the manufacturer's site..and see if it needs one or it is a plug and play device ..if it is a plug and play ..try to reset the recorder..(look for the reset button in a hole accessible with a stylus or sharp object ) or ..in the menu ..select the reset to factory settings .. In the last case you will have to reinstall the firmware in the recorder cause it is damaged and not seen by the usb port ..This is the case for those that are plug and play ..and have the driver in the root folder and accidentally deleted.. If it is not damaged or so ..follow these instructions to install the driver built in .. http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/10080/session/L3NpZC9xblNKemdraw%3D%3D/kw/vr5230%20driver/r_id/103795/sno/0 anyway ..plug it and check the my computer folder and see if it has a separate drive for its root (may be in the disk drive sections )
I found this info for you. On my recorder, these files are small, and probably do not contain the actual recordings, only data about the recordings. From Sony website:
What is the MSGLIST.MSF file?
Article ID : 1187263 (modified 11/16/2009 11:54:00)
About MSGLIST.MSF file.
MSGLIST.MSF is a file that contains information such as the order of folders, playback order of audio files and recording date and time. If user connects the recorder to the computer, the MSGLIST.MSF files are displayed but do not delete or change these files. If these files are modifed, the saved files may be broken or the recorder may not work correctly.
Hope this helps.
Put in the installation disk. Open the set up file. Then open the DVE folder. Then right click on the setup file with the logo and run it as an admin. This takes about five minutes and the computer will do an auto shut off. Then you should be up and running.
You can either use the "Digital Voice Manager" (loaded from the recorder when you first plugged it into a USB Port... OR, when you brought up the files in the recorder, clicked on the folder with setup). Or, if you just want to clean out everything from all four (A-B-C-D) folders, you can format the chip. Turn the recorder "on", press and hold "erase" until it flashes, press and hold "record" until it flashes "format", and press and hold "erase". "WAIT" will show on the screen until the chip is formatted, and you now have a clean chip - 128 meg or thereabouts.
when the device is plugged into the computer, you should be able to see the contents of the drive... you should see folders. if the folders are not there then copy the folders back to the device after deleting whatever is on the device
The software you need is in a folder on the RCA recorder. When you plug it up to the PC, let it autodetect and it will add a Thompson DV RCA device to your Drive list. You should see four folders ABCD used for organizing the recordings internally. There is another folder at the bottom with the software install inside. Copy this SW to your pc and run the setup. It allows you to convert the .VOC files to a .WAV and manage the folders.
If you bought the recorder new still in it's package, the software is located on the recorder itself.
Plug the recorder into your computer and let the computer recognize it. Once it's loaded open a copy of explorer if one did not open already. Look for a folder named SETUP in the recorder. Inside that folder is the software. Run it from the folder.
sorry it sounds like the folder may be lost forever.once you pressed the record button, the recorder knew it as a new recording in that folder.look at it like a answering machine going out message. if you made a mistake,and you wanted to record a new message,the old message would be erased.if your folder was on a cassette recorder, you would have only erased those few seconds.
