The recorder should be formatted only by using the internal FORMAT function found in the recorder's Menu. Using a computer to format the recorder may corrupt or delete system files needed to run the recorder, so formatting via the computer is not recommended.
Individual files can be deleted from the recorder while it is connected to a computer without negative effects.
susede que un amigo formateo la grabadora digital olympus ws-100 desde el pc y al momento ya no es posible utilizarla nuevamente, alguna solucion.... agradeceria una respuesta de como solucionar el problema
The recorder is not provided with any installation software. It is considered a plug and play device and should connect to Windows XP or Windows Vista and display as a removable disk drive. You can then copy and paste the files from that drive to your hard drive. The files will play using Winodws Media Player.
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.
what can happen is that the voltage supplied to the usb port is not enough to power the recorder to transfer data, assuming you have tried other usb ports, and tried leaving other connected peripherals out connected to a usb port, it is always better to use a mains powered usb hub when connecting things like mp3 players and digital recorders as some motherboards, especially low powered units struggle with some peripherals.
