Question about Olympus WS-300M Digital Voice Recorder
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:
In Windows Media Player, on the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Player tab.
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:
In Control Panel, open Internet Options.
Click the Security tab, and then click Internet.
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

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