Try formatting the memory (in the Menu, there is a 'Format' option).

*note - this will delete any dictation that is on the portable!

As per one of my other posts:

Press the 'OK' button, then it'll prompt you to 'Save All Data To PC'. If you have dictation on the portable that you want to save, connect it to the PC and hit 'OK'. It'll go into 'PC Operation Mode' and you can transfer your dictation like you normally would. Then when you disconnect and reboot the portable, you should get the error again.

To clear the error, press 'OK' again, but on the 'Save All Data To PC' screen, instead of pressing 'OK', press 'Esc' (I think that's the other option - this is from memory!) and it'll prompt you to delete the data. Press 'OK' and it'll format the memory and reboot - then you should be good to go.

The 2003,1001 error is caused by shutting off or cutting power to the portable while it's still in the Record mode. The portable is writing to the memory, and if you cut the power, it doesn't have a chance to finish saving the dictation - resulting in a corrupted file.

You can use either Walkabout Transfer or Walkabout Write found here:

Also, if you connect the portable via USB to your PC, it'll connect just like a USB memory stick and you can use Windows Explorer to transfer your dictation from the 'DSS' folder.

Hello I think that the error code that you are getting is because your SD card is not a fast write card, no all the SD cards are compatibles. I recommend this SD card is been tested and definably works an all the Walkabout 5210,5215 or 5220 all Firmware versions http://www.tvps.com/Products/ECS-8000079-128-MB-SD-Memory-Card-for-use-with-Dictaphone---New__ECS-8000079.aspx

There are several Freeware Text-to-Speech and some very expensive Text-to-Speech available on the internet, but to the best of my knowledge there is nothing available at any price that will do a proper job --the easy way.
This is why all "books on tape" or CD or whatever else, are performed by real people. Check in your local library. :-)
If you really want to voice record text books for your son to listen to, you are the only one who can do it. It is a labor of love. Or you can hire a student radio announcer.
At your local second hand stores you'll be able to get yourself a decent cassette tape recorder/player and a decent plug-in external microphone, with an ON-OFF switch. That should be an investment of not more than $20.00 to $30.00
The 60 minute cassette tapes are the more durable ones, and can be had for about $1.00 each.
Much information is available on the Internet about how to record your voice on tape.
For converting your tapes to MP3, my choice is a freeware named Audacity.
The benefit of this software is that not only it has professional features, but it has excellent on-line manuals and step-by-step instructions.
After that, it is only a question of trial-and-error until you are happy with the final outcome.
It is time and effort well invested.
Cheers
