    These files we transfered from the Olympus VN 2100PC voice recorded to the Olympus Digital Wave Player, which is the program that came with the recorder. Anyway I uploaded them from the VN-2100 voice recorder to the Digital Wave Player Program. The files are first seen in A Folder in the program. After renaming them I elected to move them to B Folder that I thought I would use just for the Bible Study files. When I hit the transfer button to move the files from A to B Folder, there left the screen,which I thought was OK. When I opened B Folder to access the files they were not there. I restarted the program, tried every option that I thought might be available but they were nowhere to be found. That is my problem. I named the files Revelation Study 1, then 2 then 3. As far as the file extension goes. I don't know because I negelected to check that. I suppose if I loaded another file and then checked the extension maybe I could hunt the file buy typing that extension after Revelation Study 1. Anyway at this point I'm missing these three files.

    Hi, I'm the guy who originally posted the lost files problem. After trying Bubbabear64,s suggestions with no positive results, I decided to use the installation disk and reinstall the Digital Wave Program. Before the installation could begin, I had to Delete the original installation. My thought was, " If the files are still on the harddrive they will no doubt be gone after the original installation is deleted. Anyway I went ahead and deleted the program, then reinstalled the program and much to my surprise, my files were back. I don't know where they were but I got them back by doing the re installation. Thanks for the help. By the way I just bought a zoom h2 digital recorder for recording our band practice sessions. I don't have it figured out yet but it is supposed to provide better than CD quality recordings. Cheers

If you go into the program files folder of the Digital Wave Player where the files are found, are they in there?

If nothing has been deleted in the recycle bin yet, check in there and see if they can be restored.

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 am trying to transfer files from my Hotmail account to Olympus


If they are files that someone has emailed to you, they need to first be saved in your C drive somewhere and then you can import them to the DSS software to be able to play them. They cannot be imported directly as an email attachment.

Unable to transfer recording from File B


All files should be set for transfer when using the Olympus software.  There is a way you can check folder B in my computer by locating the program folder where the olympus software resides.  If folder B is empty, the recording could have landed in A, C, or D folder.

Dowloading audio files onto my computer..


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?
