20 Most Recent RCA RP5012 Digital Voice Recorder - Page 2 Questions & Answers


Bad News... I spoke to AudioVox/RCA (800-894-0956 < Direct DVR Number) and they told me that once you get this notification of a bad file format, there is NOTHING that can be done.

I tried DOS, too. Nothing worked.

The only thing left to try is connecting the recorder to the computer via a cable from the line out of the DVR to the line in of the audio card, and record from there. I'm going to try this, then return the recorder, if possible. Mind you, I've gone through several of these recorders and all of them have had this problem... eventually.

The customer service person there at AudioVox/RCA was direct, helpful, but clear that I couldn't do anything but reformat the recorder. Though she didn't really seem to care, by her tone, one way or another. They were still reproducing this product even with the flaws that exist (they certainly did not take ownership of the problem... they said it was out of their control and the problem was just like a virus).

Does this unit connect to remote device (computer or ext. controller)? If so, it may be remotely manageable, and if on a Windows computer might get set to "write protect" (which will mean no erase, but doesn't explain why the dir is erased). Some units have a lock or data protect function or button, once again doesn't explain why the list of messages would be gone. Worst case is something's wrong with the firmware, meaning probably not worth fixing.

Same problem. I'm going to return mine and make sure I do negative advertising for RCA.

If your voice recorder shows on the PC as a removable drive, then you can use PC inspector file recovery Freeware Program : http://www.pcinspector.de/Sites/file_recovery/download.htm?language=1 I use it all the time for Olympus Voice Recorders hope will work for you. Joseph

It is not possible to download the sound files in their digital forms with this model of recorder. The only way to transfer the recordings is to connect a male-to-male 3.5mm (1/8") plug from the recorder to the line input of the PC (as was formerly mentioned) and record it onto the PC in real time. I've done this with mine and it works fine...it just takes longer to do than tranferring the actual digital file to the PC. A good MP3 recorder for the PC is Audio Record Wizard. http://www.nowsmart.com/arwizard/

The full version costs $25, but I think it's worth it.

Use code search on the RCA URC to find something that works. If a search through all codes stored in the URC fails, try a different URC.

This could be a lot of things. IT could be a switch connection or a chip that has failed, could be a solder connection that is bad. Without proper equipment to send a signal into the unit and trace it, you may not be able to find the problem.

Your RCA remote control may or may not contain the necessary codes. If it doesn't, you are likely to need a compatible universal remote control, possibly an RCA.
