Question about Olympus WS-300M Digital Voice Recorder

Open Question

Can't listen to Olympus WS-300 files on my Mac

When the Olympus files come up on my screen and I press play, nothing happens. I have downloaded Flip4Mac WMV, which is supposed to be the Mac-friendly version of the old Windows Media Player but the files still won't play. They work fine on my PC, but I'm not using my PC. I want to copy the audio files onto my Mac and play them but I can't. Olympus Tech support told me to install Windows Media Player for Mac but Flip4Mac is it, I'm told. Help!

try this solution from microsoft:
I can’t play a file that Windows Media Player supports. What should I do?Most likely, a required codec isn't installed on your computer. Typically, Windows Media Player automatically downloads any required codecs from the Internet and installs them. However, this may not happen for the following reasons:
• The necessary codec (typically, a non-Microsoft codec) isn't available on the codec server.
• You have an older version of the Player and your automatic codec-download option isn't enabled.
• The Internet security settings for your browser are set too high.
• You're not connected to the Internet.
If you have an older version of the Player (prior to Windows Media Player 9 Series), you can check your codec download setting by doing the following:
1.
In Windows Media Player, on the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Player tab.
2.
In the Auto upgrade area, make sure Enable automatic codec download is checked, and specify how often you want the Player to check for updates.
You can change your Internet security settings (if you are logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group) by doing the following:
1.
In Control Panel, open Internet Options.
2.
Click the Security tab, and then click Internet.
3.
In the Security level for this zone area, click Default Level.
If you can’t play the file after completing this procedure, restart your computer, and then try to play the file again.
If you still can’t play the file, try to play another file with the same file name extension. If you can play this file, then there is a problem with the file that you want to play. For more troubleshooting information, see the Windows Media Player Multimedia File Formats Web

SOURCE: CANNOT TRANSFER AUDIO FILES FROM WS-100 OLYMPUS

I wrote this for the Olympus VN-3100PC although it may work with this device as well.

Try this:

This problem can typically be solved by unplugging the device from your computer's USB port and plugging it in to another USB port on the same computer.

Also be sure you have Olympus Digital Wave Player installed and open with your Transfer Options set to Auto Transfer. To do this, follow the steps below:

Open Digital Wave Player > select Transfer from the menu > select Transfer Options > under Auto Transfer, check the box which reads "Transfer all audio files after detecting Recorder."

How to import Olympus WS 110 audio files to computer.


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.

How do I get my Digital Voice Recorder WS-110 to work with my Apple Mac?! What is the software required on my mac to play the file?


WS-110 is not really MAC friendly.
Olympus says:

"The WS-110 can be used on a Macintosh computer that has Windows Media Player for Mac installed. Windows Media Player for Mac can be downloaded for free at Microsoft’s web site. The WS-110’s files are not compatible with iTunes. If the files are opened using iTunes, they will become corrupted and rendered unplayable."
From Support > WS-110

you can download Windows Media Player for Mac here: Windows Media Player 9 for Mac OS X

Ws 200s deleted files but still full


I had the same problem. I downloaded the instruction pamphlet at http://www.olympus.co.jp/en/support/imsg/vtrek/download/manual/ws/man_ws100_ws200s.pdf and reformatted the recorder. It seems to work fine now.

Formatting the Recorder (FORMAT)
If you format the recorder, all function settings will return to their defaults.
All files stored in the recorder will be deleted.
If you have important files that you want to save, connect the recorder to a computer and
transfer those files from the recorder to the computer before formatting the device.
1 Press the MENU button.
2 Press the FF or REW button to choose “FORMAT”.
3 When the PLAY button is pressed, “nO” is displayed.
4 Press FF or REW to select “yES”, and press the
PLAY button.
After “ARE yOU SURE” is displayed, “nO” will be displayed.
5 Press FF or REW to select “yES”, and press the
PLAY button.
“DONE” displays when formatting ends.
s It may take up to several tens of seconds to finish the initialization. Do not remove the battery or detach
the battery compartment from the recorder during that time. Otherwise data may be damaged.
s Never format the recorder from a PC.
s When the recorder is formatted, all the stored data, including locked files, are erased.

WS-300M Olympus Voice Recorder


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.
