Question about Olympus VN-1000 Digital Voice Recorder

3 Answers

Import Vista files per olympus info Prague) @ add latest USA update

Hi any help would be appreciated..........Launch digi wave player and monitor with device manager.....software fails with "IMA ADPCM Audio Codec disabled".Had the same problem with a VN 600 and in the end Olympus Customer Services stated... ask Microsoft!!.........abandoned this model as no reply ever received. I joined MSFM Forum and sort an answer,plus imported Vista codecs and checked out "Shark 007 's" site all so far to no avail. Olympus (Prague) spent half an hour on the phone with me checking their software downloads and could find nothing wrong with my install...........they were due to advise me of any further ideas today; but so far there is nothing. I only bought the VN 1000 PC a week ago, yet Olympus Prague inform me the supplied installation CD marked as Vista compatible is out of date.I did try same, but end result was the same ADPCM etc........I know what ADPCM means having worked in the electronics industry, for too long, but currently I'm stuck........If I don't find the answer in the next few days its refund of purchase costs time......Kind Regards John

    Hi Rembo and thank you for your quick response.......I've just found out on this site that if you type into this section and then update the solution rating above you knock out everything you have typed in here........so. here is my comment,again, re the VN 1000.I use C Cleaner or Registry Easy Clean for keeping the registry "clean".I use Driver Detective for driver updates but I think that because Olympus Waveplayer is never launched Driver Detective never "sees" it? If you are in the USA you will know the phrase "Wally of the Week Award". I am happy to award this to myself for the following question.......How do you know which codec to look for when, as at present, Olympus or anyone else do not provide the info:? I've search the registry for waveplayer but cannot find it so is the install not working?? Device manager "sees" it and then states:-"application failed". Should the software contain the codec or does it pick it up on a one time basis during installation/launch.........Kind Regards John

Hi Rembo 37...........Have we reached the end of the road re ideas to fix the Vn 1000?.Re dual core processors I'll have a look to see if one processor addresses the Vn software and the other the codecs,there maybe a timing problem? If this fails shall we up the stakes and ask a super guru? Meantime thanks for your help........Kind Regards John

Hi rembo37.........to continue on my favorite subject!!!!.........My apologies in one respect re my comments on DEVICE MANAGER........I meant TASK MANAGER and if I launch Waveplayer the "IMA ADPCM comment Audio Codec is disabled" flags up as a comment and the Task Manager.......applications running indicates "error". I do not have access to another computer, but your comment re dual core is interesting.Re the zip file you mention.............this is the one Olympus ensured I opened and ran after the download of :-http//www olympus.co.uk/consumer/2590 software.cfm?category=8&productgroup=347&product=420&os=7&result=.........there appears to be something missing after this =but on my system thats all I can print. I much appreciate your attempts to provide a fix...............before I retired I worked in flight simulation and worldwide debugging of software was at times the norm.Have a nice day...........Kind Regards John

Digital wave player needs that codec in order to work... check your codec or update your codec in the audio codecs. also you may need to uninstall the program and clean your registry. have you tried this on another computer?

    in america, the dual core processor has been a challenge in some computers. Here is a link you may want to try... it is a zip file and install only the language appropriate for you

    also, in your device manager, how is the device being recognized if this does not work?
