Question about RCA RP5010 Digital Voice Recorder

Dowloading audio files onto my computer..

Can someone help me here?

I recently went on a vacation trip and I recorded an "audio journal" of my trip.

I recorded several little mini audio files in my folder A of my recorder (about 40 of these little files).

I want to download them onto my computer through the Digital Voice Manager software that came with the recorder. But...instead of having to convert each file individually into an wav file, download onto my computer into a music folder, and then having to transfer those individually to my windows media player, I would like to be able to do this as one big audio file. I attempted to copy and drag several of those little files and drop them into a folder on my computer, but it only copied and dropped the first selection or the top one of the group of files that I attempted to copy and drag together.

It just seems there has to be an easier way to download all of these little audio file clips onto my computer.

I'm also interested in listening to all of these little files in a continuous stream of audio, rather than having to play one file, then play the next file, then the next, etc.

Anybody able to shed some light on this?

I have an Olympus recorder. I don't know if the software is similar but their software has a way of copying the files to folders in the software. These files can then be used in other audio programs such as ITunes if you want to transfer it to your Ipod or audio recording software so that you can drag and drop them into one file.

If you look in the folder where your voice manage software is, is there a folder where the audio files are being stored within the program?

How do i get the recording onto my mac?


if you can connect via USB try that first. Your computer will see it as a storage device and give it a drive letter. you can open it up and selet all the audio files and move them to a folder (you assign) on your computer. If you don't have a way to hook up via USB you can reord the audio file into your computer by hooking up to the earphone jack on the recorder and the to the Pink audio in jack on your mac. open the software that you use for recording audio (garage band for example, or sound recorder). you will have to do this is "real" time however so if you have a lot of recordinng on the device it may take awhile to get the all transferred.

Lost my DS-40 audio files after upload. Can I recover them?


you can use card recovery software that helped me before
1. Do not save any new file to memory card.
2. Connect your card to computer. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in My Computer.
3. Download recovery software, recommended one is this photo recovery (simply because i was using it and it worked)

4. Install and open the data recovery program, select your memory drive, and click 'Next' button to start scanning process which will find your deleted files.

I recently repartitioned my flash drive (u3 cruzer 2gig), afterward 's the flash drive only show 8meg maximum capacity available!!! CAN ANYONE HELP ME PLZZZ...


file system on them just like your hard drive does. Most of these drives are small (<= 32 GB) so they use FAT16 as the file system type. FAT16 is an older file system and writes to the disk are simply done on demand. If the power to the machine is cut or the drive is simply yanked out during a write, this will result in incomplete data and possibly a corrupted file system on the drive. The "Safely Remove Hardware" bit calls for all programs accessing the drive to complete whatever reads/writes they need to as the drive will be removed. When all I/O is complete, the OS removes the drive from its list of usable drives and then pops up the bubble telling you it's safe to remove it.

If you formatted your memory card/USB stick yourself and put a journaled file system like NTFS, ext3, XFS, ZFS, HFS+ or ReiserFS, then the removal is different. All writes to the drive are first written to a journal, which is a temporary space on the drive. Once the data is written to the journal, then the data in the journal is written to its final location on the drive, overwriting the original data. Yanking out the drive will cause the following things to happen:

1. Yanking the drive out before the data has been completely written to the journal causes the original data on the drive to remain safe. The changed version of your file that was being written to the journal is lost as the FS sees that there is an incomplete write to the journal and flushes the journal the next time the drive is accessed.

2. Yanking the drive out after the data is written to the journal but before it can be completely written to the file system results in the partially-modified file in the file system being replaced with the good copy on the journal the next time the device is accessed. The user would never know that the final write never completed.

3. Yanking the drive out before any writes to the journal occur or after the data from the journal was successfully copied to the file system cause no issues as the drive is idle.

Safely removing a disk with a journaled file system causes the same actions as with the non-journaled file system but will also cause the disk to make sure that all of the journaled data has been written to disk successfully. Journaled file systems are more modern and much more reliable than non-journaled file systems. They still should be removed safely, but the consequences for not doing so are basically that it takes a longer time to access the disk upon the next access (due to journal-file comparison and flushes.)

The reason that journaled file systems do not commonly appear on UBS sticks or camera cards is because of Microsoft. Most people run Windows computers and Windows computers can only recognize FAT16/FAT32 and NTFS file systems out of the box. ext3 support can be easily added via a driver, but the other file systems require some external program to access (ReiserFS) or are completely unreadable in Windows (XFS, ZFS, possibly HFS+ as well.) NTFS isn't used on removable devices because it is covered by Microsoft patents while the FAT file systems are direct descendants of the original DOS file systems and are in the public domain. Device makers would have to pay MS a royalty fee for every device shipped if it was pre-formatted with NTFS. So the device makers have a few options:

1. Ship the drive with FAT formatting for free even though it's sub-optimal.

2. Ship the drive with NTFS formatting and pay MS $0.25 (IIRC) per unit shipped.

3. Ship the drive unformatted for free and require the user to format it on their computer, where they can format NTFS for free. This axes out-of-the-box working ability.

4. Ship the drive with ext3 for free and require that the users download the Windows ext3 IFS driver for free. This also axes out-of-the-box working ability and renders the device unusable on computers where the user doesn't have admin access to install the ext3 driver (work computers, public terminals.)

Most manufacturers want easy-to-use and cheap rather than good so they ship FAT-formatted drives. I leave mine formatted as FAT as cameras won't support anything but FAT16 and since I don't run Windows, I can r/w to FAT but basically only read from NTFS (write support is VERY limited.) I'd simply format my USB stick ext3 and be done with it, but I use my drive a lot on university computers and I highly doubt that the techs would install the ext3 drivers for me.

No sound


Try setting the recordsettings of ur soundcard to "record what you hear". This way it will record ALL the sounds that are produced in windows. Warning: this also means that it could record an windows systemsound as well.

IPod won't sync with existing iTunes


Hi,
Just connect it to your computer and sync it with your iTunes library. If that doesn't work, try 'restoring' the iPod and reloading your music from your library. Hope that helps.

Not able to record onto Adobe Audition 1.5


Sounds like you do not have your audio recording source set correctly.  If you're recording from a file on your computer or a CD via the CD-Rom drive of your computer, you need to probably set the recording to either "Wave" or "What you hear", one of the two.  The "What you hear" can be easiest, but then again, if any other sound comes accross your computer at the same time, you'll end up recording that as well, so it's best to stick to "wave" if you can... or make sure all Windows sounds are turned off (Audio settings ->Sounds ->Select "No Sounds" as the theme).

Is there a way to get the files off my Olympus VN-1000 recorder onto my computer?


You could get a cable to connect from the headphone socket to the line in/mic on your computer and record the files like any other external audio device. Not perfect but it will work...

Olmpus Digital Wave Machine Files


In the program folders of your computer is a folder called Olympus. In that folder, there are four folders for audio files. They correspond to the audio folders you have on you voice recorder. Each file is save with a time a date stamped file name. The files should be saved as wavetable file or wav. These files can be played using windows media player and can be emailed under most cases as well provided the file size for the attachment is acceptable to the recipients e-mail address.

Usually what I have to do is link the folders using ITues. Then files can be synched and converted to mpeg3. That way if someone wants to listen to them on an Ipod or any other mp3 player there easy to transport.

Let me know what you find.
