I have a new olympus ws 300. i paid far too much for it. however, after opening the box, i misplaced the owners manuel. i was not worried at first because it seemed very simple to use..wrong. recored 2.5 hours of school work and lost it. i did not see a place to save the work. after fiddling with the thing i suppose i erased the material without ever touching the erase button. if the work is still there somehow, i would like to know where. all i find are the play, stop, and record buttons on one side. i see the music or voice or hold choice on the other side, the mic and ear choices on the top and the erase, folder index and menu wheel on the front...nothing on the bottom or back. now that menu wheel..it gives me volume and time, but i have no clue as to what else; i can't find anything. the folder index gives me numbers like a 1 or a 2 and the time remaining, but i have no idea as to what it does for files. and another thing is, i can not see where to put the usb cord. do i need an adapter or something? please respond quickly. if i had the book, i would take it back and exchange it. i can't now.

Audio files need the right codecs to play them. Windows media player generally needs these to be added. Download the K-Lyte CODEC pack from the Major Geeks website. Always use the advanced mode when installing them, as they do like to change your browser settings or change your browser completely if you do the normal way.
you can not do this with the Olympus ws-100, you need a dictation machine that has the editing function which allows you to easily
insert, overwrite, partially erase files and continue on the same file, most of the digital dictation units have NEW FILE BUTTON , you will stay recording on the same file till you press new. Look at Olympus DS-2300. Olympus DS-33300 or ds-4000.
you can rewind a tad and listen, but you can't overrecord, because a digital recorder writes audio information into a data file and saves it. you just can play it back again and record a new file. if you want to cut off a part of your recording, you have to edit the file in an audio editor. - as the olympus stores wma-files, you'll have to convert them into wav format first to edit them. i tried the 'switch' software successfully.
