You may have to reset the recorder by going to the Device Menu and selecting reset settings. The other option is to attached the device to a computer and use file explorer to browse about the used space and free space of the memory of the recorder. If there is no free space, you need to deleted files. You might try transferring some to a folder on the computer if trying to preserve data. That also might free up enough space on the recorder for it to function again.

You can convert DSS file into wav format with DSS Player 2000 or the latest version. it can only convert it into wav format. after convert into wav format then u can use any other converter to change it into any other audio format. u can use total video converter or Sonic record now multilanguage software.....

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

There is a way to format this device. If you press the menu/folder button a couple of times, you should see a blinking message that says "FORMAT" with a "no" centered above it. If you press the "forward" button, you will change the "no" to a "yes" and you'll have to "play" to change the option to "yes" which will reformat the unit.

Good luck!! This worked for me!

We had a similar problem (it wouldn't turn on), and it turned out that we hadn't taken off both layers of clear packaging from the batteries. It now works.

hi, do you have the original instructions that came with the device.

Olympus WS-100... | Answered on May 30, 2015

Do you plug into your computer? If so, you can erase from there.
Does your recorder have a "format" setting? That will erase entire contents.

Maybe you can rely on a Do It Yourself data recovery software to help if the storage device of your recorder is good. This recovery tool is able to recover audio, video and photo files. Good luck.
