Question about RCA VR5220 Digital Voice Recorder

1 Answer

I have about 10 interviews on my recorder. It recorded fine, but when I plugged it into my computer it says I need to format it. Is there anyway to get this information off of here, even if I have to take the recorder apart?

DO NOT format the recorder. That will wipe it clean. The computer does not recognize the device. There must be a piece of software needed to allow the computer to recognize it. If you have an old pc forget it. Dont know about macs.

    I have a mac and it's recognized it before... I tried plugging it into another pc too, but it did the same thing. Is there some kind of memory card inside the device I could get to?

    The fact that it did recog your recorder before, and does not now does prove something. Can you play and hear the interviews over the built in speaker on the voice recorder?

I have a number of files on my digital recorder where I have recorded interviews. When I press play, it shows up the length of each interview and the countdown starts, but there is no sound, just a qu

Did any of the files ever playback with sound? You can record sounds, but that doesn't mean the recorder is picking them up. A bad connection, level control setting could be wrong.
Try to do another short recording. If you are using a microphone pull the jack out during recording and put it back in again. Then listen to the recording. If there is sound when the microphone is in and it goes when it is out, then there is a possibility that somehow you recorded the other stuff with no connection and that's why there is no sound. If there is no sound on the new recording at all, then you might have a faulty playback amplifier inside the device.

Hello! I am writing to you in a desperate state.

Try Google for VN 5000 manual, or link your device to your computer via USB cable, and click on your device, you should be able to see your items from there. Re install the file you wish to.!!

Err format while recording - 1 hour lost!

I have almost the exact same problem.

I did not interrupt my recording. I stopped recording, turned off the recorder, unplugged all the mics, turned on the recorder, listened to the first 10 seconds of the recorded track, turned off the recorder, plugged it into my mac, turned it on in USB mode, attempted to transfer the track file, and the track size is "zero kb." I ejected the recorder, turned it off and back on, and now the track says "err format" and skips to the next track.

This seems like a unique problem, as any "data recovery" software will search for deleted files instead of corrupted files. And even if the file is corrupted I have software that can read the raw wav data. However, the filesize is incorrect and obviously doesn't contain any wav data. Shouldn't it be the actual file size? How can I fix this???

Olympus DM-10,locked in a "Read Only" mode

The recorder should be formatted only by using the internal FORMAT function found in the recorder’s Menu. Formatting using the computer may corrupt system files needed to run the recorder, so computer formatting is not recommended.

Locked file

The folder lock can oly be solved by chosing the option "format" in the sub-menu. But please copy the *.dss - files still resting at your card at your harddisk first.
When the recorder finishes the format procedure, all folders will be unlocked again.

The "Read-Only-Failure" will occur again at recorders with differend user profiles, when you put the switched-off recorder into the docking station first and switch the power button to "on". So avoid this constellation!
