RCA Digital Voice Manager software for RP5120 "warning decoding"
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).

Can't erase messages shows there gone but as soon
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.

RCA RP 5012B digital recorder
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.

Which rca output from deck do I use for an eq
If you're trying to put an equaliser in between a source and an preamp or integrated amp, the amp needs to have tape OUT or dubbing OUT connections. This will go to the eq's IN. Then eq OUTs should be connected to the tape or dubbing IN on the amp. When playing any source you set the amp's source selector to tape or dubbing IN and now what you are hearing is coming through the equaliser.
