Question about Olympus WS-100 Digital Voice Recorder

1 Answer

Opening to find UBS

I am ready to download files form my WS-100, and see in the manual that the case should slide open to reveal the USB connector.  I can not seem to get the case to open at all.  Is there some trick to this?

    Same problem. Pried apart with fingernail once at seam. After re-connecting, cannot open again. Manual says to press lightly on arrow. There is no arrow to press! So far it is an expensive and useless piece of junk!

Downloading recordings


HI a quick search reveals that Quick Link is required to transfer Voice memos to PC.

However in the Owners Manual here it dosn't mention it. (Click the link to see the PDF)

The Quick Search link there does have a menu for wav playing Software. But as a USB storage device I would suspect that when you plug it into a computer, and it does it's automatic drive install, the device should pop up as an additonal Drive in the "My Computer" window. Try opening the My Computer, and plugging the device in with the Mini USB cord you have, and see if a new drive icon pops into the window, If so, that's what you're looking for.

The Specs say the device contains four folders that can contain up to 100 files each. They're most likely WAV files.

Good luck with that.
Richard.

CANNOT TRANSFER AUDIO FILES FROM WS-100 OLYMPUS VOICE RECORDER TO PC (Windows XP)


I wrote this for the Olympus VN-3100PC although it may work with this device as well.

Try this:

This problem can typically be solved by unplugging the device from your computer's USB port and plugging it in to another USB port on the same computer.

Also be sure you have Olympus Digital Wave Player installed and open with your Transfer Options set to Auto Transfer. To do this, follow the steps below:

Open Digital Wave Player > select Transfer from the menu > select Transfer Options > under Auto Transfer, check the box which reads "Transfer all audio files after detecting Recorder."

Refer to your Owner's manual to re-format your recorder. Sometimes, recorder memory can become corrupted just as with any electronic memory media.

Olympus WS-100


if you were able to format the recorder thru the recorder.. it should be ready.. but if formatted through the computer, the files needed to operate the recorder are lost and you will need to send to repair to get the files put back on there

Recording Time


I have one of these recorders, I actually have 4 or 5, since discontinued I believe, and one is stuck at 43 min remaining.

I think that problems start when you remove the battery while
the recorder is / was in the process of recording (or in play mode) I now press stop while recording before opening the battery case to switch a battery
