I have recorded loads of work onto this dictator and it is in a 32 bit
format - (so I am informed when clicking on the properties of it).I am
using it with the Dragon NaturallySpeaking voice to text software and
to test my voice, it needs it in a 16 bit format.... PLEASE HELP! ???
Try NCH Software's Switch freeware program. You can tell it to convert from one bit format to another even with WAV files (it will call them PCM, but Dragon recognizes them as WAV files). It is also the best batch WAV to MP3 converter I have found. I always download from the company's own site as other sites can attach viruses.

Not only does the wav have to be 16 bit, it has to be PCM, 11.025 or 22.050 kHz, 16 Bit, Mono. I think it would be easiest just to play the audio from your sound recorder right into the microphone of your computer, since the Dragon software is especially made for listening on the microphone, Or hook up the audio out from the sound recorder to the Line-In jack of your computer using a male to male phono cable.
Dustin, just go to song in the menu , click the arrow to song load, create etc. cursor to song create and it will give you the option of 16 or 24 bits just turn the cursor wheel then just cursor down with the button and select 44.1 or 48 kHz . Then cursor up to song load and push the right arrow and it will load your song with the settings you have selected. Very good recorder once you learn your way around on it. Joe
Wikipedia: Digital dictation is a method of recording and editing the spoken word in real-time. The recording is done by the use of a digital recorder. Digital recorders are lighter have a longer battery life and are able to record a for a lot longer utilizing the same media, as compared to analog tape based dictation machines. The files generated with digital recorders vary in size(kilo bites or mega bites) depending on the manufacturer and the format the user chooses. The most common file formats that digital recorders generate have following extension WAV, WMA, and MP3 true dictation machines record in the DSS and DS2 format.
The DS-3000 and the software is was shipped will not operate with Windows Vista. The software i suspect you have will DSS Player Pro Release 2 or 3. If you obtain a copy of DSS Player Pro Release 4 you will be able to use the DS-3000 on Windows Vista 32 bit or 64 bit without problem.
Use Sound recorder that is included on Windows XP it gives the easiest conversion option for .WAV files.
Converting the File Properties
1. Left click Start, Programs, Accessories, Entertainment, Sound Recorder. If you
intend to do this procedure often it is recommended to drag the Sound Recorder shortcut
icon onto your Desktop for convenience.
2. In the Sound Recorder box click on File> Open
3. In the Look In field locate and select your file. Click Open.
4. The Sound Recorder box is back. Click File> Save As.
5. In the Save As box click Change… There are all the options listed that you can change and the bit rate is one of the options.
you can rewind a tad and listen, but you can't overrecord, because a digital recorder writes audio information into a data file and saves it. you just can play it back again and record a new file. if you want to cut off a part of your recording, you have to edit the file in an audio editor. - as the olympus stores wma-files, you'll have to convert them into wav format first to edit them. i tried the 'switch' software successfully.
