Card Basics
The xD-Picture Card is a removable recording media. “Card” in this manual refers to the xDPicture Card.
1
The removable card can be used to store different
kind of data. Since the card has larger memory
capacity than a diskette, it can be used to transfer
data between different PCs. The recorder supports
cards with memory capacity between 16 to 512 MB.

Notes
• When initializing (formatting) a card, confirm that no necessary data is stored on the card beforehand.
Initialization completely erases the existing data on the card.
• Cards used in a recorder must be formatted in the same recorder first unless formatted with a
CAMEDIA series Olympus digital camera. Card may not perform as expected when formatted by a different device.
• The card has a service life. When reaching the end of its life, writing or erasing data on the card will be
disabled. In this case, replace the card.
• If you use a PC card adapter compatible with the card to save or delete some data on the card, the maximum
recording time on the card may be decreased. To recover the original recording time, initialize/format the
card in the recorder.
• Olympus will not be held liable for any data corruption or loss due to misuse of media card.

When
appears on the display, replace the batteries as
soon as possible.
When the batteries are too weak, the recorder shuts down
and “BATTERY LOW” appears on the display. AAA alkaline
batteries are recommended.
An optional Ni-MH Rechargeable Battery from Olympus
can be used for the recorder ( ☞ P.81).
.................................................................................................................................................................
Notes
• Be sure to stop the recorder before replacing the batteries. Unloading the batteries while the recorder
is in use may corrupt the file. If you are recording into a file and the batteries run out, you will lose your
currently recorded file because the file header will not be able to close. It is crucial to change the batteries
once you see only one Hash mark in the battery icon.
• Be sure to replace both batteries at the same time.
• Never mix old and new batteries, or batteries of different types and/or brands.
• If it takes longer than 1 minute to replace dead batteries, you may have to reset the time when you load
fresh batteries (☞ P.12).
• Remove the batteries if you are not going to use the recorder for an extended period of time.

Using the AC Adapter
1
Using the AC Adapter
Plug the optional AC adapter (Olympus Model
A321 or A322) into household power outlet
and connect the power plug to the recorder’s
power connector (DC 3 V) as shown in the
illustration. Always stop recording before
connection. Otherwise it may not be possible
to play back the voice data being recorded.
Warning
• Always stop recording before
connection or disconnection.
• When the AC adapter is not in use,
disconnect the power supply plug from
the power outlet.
• Use only the correct power supply
voltage as indicated on the adapter.
• Do not use the AC adapter when
connecting the recorder to the USB port.
11
Setting Time/Date (TIME&DATE)
If you have set the time and date, information as to when an audio file is recorded is stored
automatically with that file. The time and date should be set to ease file management tasks. The
time and date setting is also needed to perform the alarm playback function (☞ P.38).

Recording
The recorder provides five folders, A, B, C, D and E, and each message recorded in a folder is
saved as a Digital Speech Standard (DSS) file or a Windows Media Audio (WMA) file. These five
folders can be selectively used to distinguish the kind of recording; for example, Folder A might
be used to store private information, while Folder B might be dedicated to holding business
information. Up to 199 messages can be recorded per folder.

Using the Variable Control Voice Actuator (VCVA)
When the microphone senses that sounds have reached a preset threshold volume level, the
built-in Variable Control Voice Actuator (VCVA) starts recording automatically, and stops when
the volume drops below the threshold level.
The VCVA feature help extend recording time and conserve memory by turning off recording
during silent periods. This helps make the playback, with no lulls or dead space, more efficient
and convenient.

• Playback voice files on your PC and on the recorder when connected via USB. Download files
from the recorder to the PC or upload files from the PC to the recorder.
Precautions on using the recorder connected to a PC
5
Using DSS Player Software
54
● When you are downloading a file from
the recorder or uploading a file to the
recorder, do not remove the USB cable
even if the screen is indicating you can.
Data is still being transferred while the
record/play indicator lamp is blinking.
If the USB cable is removed before the
drive is stopped, data may not be
successfully transferred.
● Do NOT format the card using your PC. If
you do, the recorder will not be able to
recognize the card. Only format the cards
using either the recorder or the Olympus
CAMEDIA digital camera (☞ P.51).
● Folder (directory) names displayed by
file management tools such as Explorer
attached to Microsoft Windows and
Finder attached to Mac OS are different
from the folder names settable with the
recorder or DSS player.
● If folders or files stored on the recorder
are moved or renamed by using a file
management tool such as Explorer or
Finder, the order of files may be
changed or files may become
unrecognizable.
● Data can be written or uploaded to the
recorder even though the attribute of the
recorder drive is shown as Read-only
by the operating system of the PC.
● As the noise may cause adverse effects
on electronics devices nearby the
recorder, unplug the earphone and
remote controller when you connect the
recorder to a PC.
