What file formats can be used in the Memory Stick™ Voice Editor software?

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

The file formats supported depend on the version of Memory Stick™ Voice Editor software that is being used. See the list of file formats below for compatibility information.

MSV (ADPCM): The MSV (ADPCM) file is a sound file format used in recording messages on the IC Recorder ICD-MS1. You can play back and edit the MSV (ADPCM) files on the Memory Stick Voice Editor software. On the IC Recorder ICD-MS515, the MSV (ADPCM) files can only be played back. On the Memory Stick Voice Editor 2, an MSV (ADPCM) file can be converted into an MSV (LPEC) file and can be written on the Memory Stick® media to be played back and edited on the IC Recorder ICD-MS515.

DVF: The DVF file is a sound file format used in recording messages on the Sony® ICD-BP Series IC Recorder equipped with a USB port. You can edit and play back the DVF files on both the Memory Stick Voice Editor and the Digital Voice Editor software. On the Memory Stick Voice Editor 2, a DVF file can be converted into an MSV (LPEC) file and can be written on the Memory Stick to be played back on the IC Recorder ICD-MS515.

WAV: The WAV file is a PCM 8/11/16 kHz, 8/16-bit monaural, or 44.1kHz, 16-bit stereo sound file used in recording sound in standard Windows application software. You can play back a WAV file on the Memory Stick Voice Editor and on software such as Sound Recorder. On the Memory Stick Voice Editor 2 software, a 11/16/44.1kHz WAV file can be converted into an MSV (LPEC, SP) and a 8kHz WAV file can be converted into an MSV (LPEC, LP) file. They can be written on Memory Stick media and played back on the IC Recorder ICD-MS515.

ICS: The ICS file is the original sound file format used in recording messages on the IC Recorder ICD-R100. The Memory Stick Voice Editor 2 software does not support ICS files. To use an ICS file with the Memory Stick Voice Editor 2 software, use software compatible with the ICS file format, such as Sony® ICD-PCLINK software, to convert an ICS file into a WAV file.

MP3: The MP3 file stores digital audio such as sounds or songs and is commonly used to distribute it over Internet. The file is compressed with only minor loss in sound quality. You can play back MP3 using an MP3 player. On the Memory Stick Voice Editor 2 software, an MP3 file can be viewed in the PC message list, played back, and attached to an e-mail message. You can also convert an MP3 file into an MSV file and add to Memory Stick® media.
