I'm looking for a digital voice recorder and am pretty overwhelmed. Unlike iPods, digital voice recorders have long model names and don't seem to be Mac compatible. What I'm looking for: long recording time/battery life used for close up dictation sound quality doesn't have to be excellent records to compressed format to take up less room on computer (not wav, aiff) I've been looking at Olympus ones which say they are not Mac compatible. But would it still show up as USB disk image I could manually transfer the audio recordings from? Or is it really, truly not Mac compatible for some odd reason? If it's just that I can use the Olympus software and some other Mac program can open it that's fine.
