I was wondering if any of you who have a digital recorder (I have an Olympus DS-2400, w/o an ac plug-in, unfortunately) tried recording the audio feed from a videographer onto your digital recorder instead of it being recorded on a tape recorder that a lot of videographers still use (at least in my area). If so, could you tell me what setup changes and/or cables you have to make in order to this? I tried once and it didn't work.
I constantly ask videographers if I can get a digital file instead of cassette tapes, but still the majority of the videographers tell me they can only provide the audio cassettes. So until the transition is made on the videographers' end, I think if I can use my digital recorder instead of the videographer's cassette recorder, that should be sufficient.
