Question about Olympus VN-3100PC Digital Voice Recorder

1 Answer

Vista and CD's

In looking at the VN-3100PC it does not show Vista Home Premium as a supported OS, will it work with Vista? Also I'm recording a class and want to burn it to a CD, can this be done with this recorder and Vista? Thanks!

    I have installed the CD for the VN-3100PC and the Vista update, but my computer still will not recognize the recorder.

This is the info off their site regarding their vista update. It has worked on my new laptop.
However, the VN-3100PC is not compatible with anything that runs 64 bit.The following is the url and the info regarding Vista Compatibility.

This download updates the Digital Wave Player software bundled with Olympus VN-*PC series digital voice recorders from version 2.1.1 to 2.1.4. It enables Digital Wave Player versions 2.0 and later to run on Windows Vista systems

Olympus VN-3100PC drivers for Vista x64


Unfortunately there is no way to make this recorder compatible to Vista 64 bit operating system. You may want to call Olympus customer service and see if they can do an exchange to a VN-3200PC or a VN-5200PC as these recorders are both compatible to that operating system. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3.
