DIYrescue :

Can you please confirm you have the ws6005 model? I am not able to find any information on this particular model.

DIYrescue :

In general however, the olympus recorders transfer recordings to a computer with a base/docking station, usually connected to the computer via a usb cable, and using some proprietary software. These items should have been included in the package when you purchased your recorder.

Customer: might be ws-600s not 5
DIYrescue :

Yes, that is it.

DIYrescue :

This model actually has a built in usb connector. There should be a button on the back that slides to make the usb connector protude from the base of the recorder.

DIYrescue :

When you do this, your recorder will appear as a "drive" in your "my computer" area along with your hard drive, etc. It will work just like a usb memory stick or thumb drive. Just open the new folder (it may be called portable drive or removable disk, probably labeled as drive E: or F:) and you will see individual .mp3 or .wma files for each of your recordings.

DIYrescue :

You can copy them to a folder on your computer (highlight the ones you want, right click and select copy, then move your mouse to the destination folder and right click and select paste.) This will make a copy on your PC without removing anything from the recorder.

DIYrescue :

You can also select files and press the delete button on your keyboard to remove items you don't want.

DIYrescue :

After they are copied, you can rename the files to keep them organized, and play them back at any time in itunes or windows media player.
