Customer Question

I purchases the Olympus WS-853 voice recorder and was told that I could transfer the files to my MacBook Pro easily. I have not been able to do that. At first I got the message that there was no app to do it and would need to purchase one. Then I purchased one with good reviews and it keeps telling me the files are downloaded with errors and can't be played back. Please help!

Hi there and welcome

It will work without any software needed. When you connect the recorder to the Mac, open Finder.

Do you see the recorder listed on the left in the new window?
