Question about Sony ICD-BM1 Handheld Digital Voice Recorder

1 Answer

Memory stick error message

We use the Sony ICD-BM1 VTP digital voice recorder to record notes, save them to a memory stick (Sony Magic Gate 128MB,and use Dragon voice recognition software to transcribe. One note would not open and the error message read "The message is no longer usable because an irregular operation may be performed". The message could be heard when played back in the recorder itself. Any idea what caused it and how we can prevent this.

SOURCE: syncing Sony ICD-MX20 with Dragon Naturally Speaking 10 on Vista

the workaround seems to be

buy an Olympus recorder (supposedly they issued a patch for DNS 10 in a couple of days)

or

tell DNS that the source is a PDA generating WAV, MP3, etc.

havn't tried this myself yet. some say it it isn't that awful. But I too am very dissappointed.

I would run compatibility check. It sounds like not compatible with Vista.

I need to know how to use the memory stick feature on a Sony digital recorder.

Here is the URL for the manual for your recorder =>

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=ICDMX20&LOC=3

Essentially you just plug in the Memory Stick, wait for the display to stop showing "ACCESS". Make sure you do not insert the stick when you are either recording or playing a message. There is a chart that shows you how many messages you can record using the different speeds.
