    We have been using both source for months, we use both in hte ven there is a power shortage or a surge.

    All your help is much appreciated, we record away from the office and download at the end of the day direct to our server.



    We have always use rechargable batteries as the back up in the event of a power surge and power temporary interruption.



    Again, thanks for all your help.

    I've only seen these run off batteries. Do they allow the USB interface to act as a power supply as well?



    Does the AC adaptor allow for batteries to be installed as well?

I think the units are designed for rechargeable batteries if you leave the ac adaptor in the recorder at the same time. You can probably charge it up through the usb cable as well.

The manual states that the recorder may not work with the batteries in and ac adapter connected. if you connect to the usb do not have the ac adapter plugged in. you dont even need batteries in the recorder to connect to the computer

Recognition of recorder


Does the computer recognize the Olympus DS-30 being connected to it at all? If not, do you happen to have another USB cable that you could try using? Either way, you should try connecting it to a different USB port on your computer, as you might have happened to connect it to one that doesn't work.

Olympus Voice Recorder says only 6 hours time when it's empty


Hello
The recorder should be formatted only by using the internal FORMAT function found in the Menu. Formatting using the computer may corrupt system files needed to run the recorder and may delete the Voice Guide Data and Audible system files, so computer formatting is not recommended. When the recorder is connected to a computer, individual files can be deleted using My Computer without negative effects.after you format the unit this is how needs t
be depends on your selection for Audio quality
STEREO XQ mode: 17 hours 30 minutes
STEREO HQ mode: 35 hours 10 minutes
HQ mode: 70 hours 20 minutes
SP mode: 138 hours 30 minutes
LP mode: 275 hours 20 minutes

Olympus DS30 voice recorder play speed issue


Hi, the solution to the problem seems to be the following. When u press play, once, you get 1x play. If whilst playing you press play a second time the DS-30 goes into slow play mode, and if you press a second time it goes into fast mode. For those of us who accidentally went into either fast or slow mode, just press the play button again, during playback, until "play" appears on the LCD screen. Apparently it is as simple as that.
