USB Flash Drive Voice Recorder Voice Activated
A SLEEK DESIGN, WITH SUPER-SIMPLE EASE OF USE!
This small portable thumb drive recording device can be set to only trigger when sound happens in the area! Our new USB Flash Drive Voice Recorder has great voice activation, able to pick up sound within approximately 40 feet in optimal conditions. New features to the date and time stamp program allow you to adjust the voice activation mode ( VOS ), enabling you to only trigger quieter sounds in some situations or louder sounds in others.
A continuous or voice-activated file will elicit 15-18 hours of battery life, which means you'll have to recharge it plenty of times to max out the 8GB, 288-hour storage capacity, but it'll only take about 2-3 hours for a full charge.
How does the USB Flash Drive Recorder work?
Charging the unit is a simple matter, as it is designed and operates just like a normal USB memory drive. Plug it into a computer or USB wall charger for about 2-3 hours while being turned off. A red light will show while charging and will start blinking when finished.
While plugged into a computer, you can review your files by simply finding the memory drive and double-clicking your files, or delete them by sending them to your recycle or trash bins ( Mac users, be sure also to delete your recorded files from your trash; otherwise the files will remain on the unit and eat up memory space ). We recommend using VLC Media Player, iTunes, or Windows media player when playing back files. On a Windows computer, you can open the "Time Setup" program to set the date and time of future recordings and adjust the sound activation sensitivity to your desired setting.
A simple click to either side of a wheel at the sound recorder's base will enable continuous recording ( - ) or voice activation ( -- ), with the middle position being the off position. You can either record continuously until the battery is depleted or use the VOS mode to trigger only when a sound occurs, though this will not increase the device's battery life.
You can also plug this voice recorder into a computer or USB wall charger while turned on to record, allowing for you to record with no battery life restrictions. A little notch in the wheel helps to determine which mode you've clicked it too. When turned on, a light will appear above the USB terminal for the first few seconds to indicate the battery life remaining. Then it will disappear, with a solid light showing 70-100% left, blinking indicating it has 30-70% life, and no light showing says it has between 0-30% battery. Please keep in mind; a covered-up recorder will get muffled sounds, and not every situation is optimal for every VOS sensitivity level.

Q: How long should I charge the battery?
A: Take it off charge after about 2 to 3 hours to fully charge and protect battery quality.
Q: How long does the VOS standby let the unit record for?
A: The USB thumb drive recorder still only has 15-18 hours of use, whether recording continuously or via VOS.
Q: How can I tell which mode I'm switching to?
A: On the face of the recorder, next to the half-wheel switch, are two indicators: a long dash for continuous, and a double-dot for voice activation, with the notch of the wheel pointing straight out to indicate the off position.
Q: How do I set the Time and Date on a Windows computer?
A: Plug your device into your Windows computer. A removable desktop folder should pop up. Click open the folder to view the files. Click on the file time setup V2.2 and click start.
Disconnect the device from the PC and take a moment to make a 30-second audio clip. Once you have completed making your audio clip, plug it back into the computer, go to your voice folder, and ensure the time and date are correct on the file name. If not, repeat this step once more to ensure the time and date took.
Q: Can I set the time on a Mac computer?
A: Unfortunately, the program for date/time stamping of the files does not work on a Mac.
Q: How can I tell when it's fully charged?
A: There will be a red light that will be solid while it charges, then it will start to blink when it has reached full power.
Q: What is the recommended program for playback?
A: A simple to use and free-to-download program that works with Mac computers and Windows PCs is VLC Media Player.
Q: What if I plug it into my computer when a pop-up does not show to bring me to the files?
A: For a Windows PC, type "computer" into the search bar or near the Start menu. This will bring up the File Explorer with "MEMOQ" being listed under "This PC," which contains all your files. For a Mac computer, you'll do the same thing but using the Finder app.
