Question: How much recording time is available on the Olympus DS-4000 digital voice recorder?
The length of the potential recording time available in the DS-4000 is governed by the recording quality mode and the capacity of the xD-Picture Card™ media used. An SP (Standard Play) quality mode recording uses more memory than an LP (Long Play) quality mode recording because the SP makes a more-detailed digital record and uses more memory. The table below shows the approximate maximum recording times possible in the DS-4000 using different size cards.
|Memory Size||SP Mode||LP Mode|
|16 MB||2 Hours 35 Minutes||5 Hours 30 Minutes|
|32 MB||5 Hours 10 Minutes||11 Hours 5 Minutes|
