Question about Dictaphone Walkabout 5210 Digital Voice Recorder
I recently bought this little headache of a dictation machine to help me with my Law revision. Had similar problems but have worked out the following:
The machine appears to have 2 modes of recording - LP and SP. When the machine is in LP mode, it appears to be a format for the machine itself to allow for longer record time. Because of this individual format it will not play back on computers. If, however, you change it to SP mode (from what I can ascertain from the VERY unhelpful user manual is 'high quality recording' i.e. standard WAV format) it saves the file in a .wav format which is playable on computers.
To switch it from LP to SP (this is on my dictation machine only - i take absolutely no responsibility for breakages etc):
Press 'M' to cycle to 'REC' mode
Use the Volume control to cycle between SP, SP VOR (no idea what VOR is i'm afriad), LP and LP VOR
Record as usual.
I've made test recordings on both SP and SP VOR and both save to WAV format and can be played back through a computer.
If anyone knows what VOR is then please shout back.
Hope this helps.

Vor (voice control record) is voice activated on/off set up on page 13 of english manual it is to conserve space when recording in .wav format to make any change from sp Lp sp+vor etc start on page 12 Menu setting and work through takes some bit of time but it will work setting appears to turn the device off ofter 3 sec and on again when another sound is made
