I can't turn my olympus digital voice recorder WS-450S on, even with a new battery, i hadn't used it in a while, so i was shocked that it didn't work. It only turns on if i plug it in to the computer, but...

I've got this same problem :( Turns on when I plug it in to the USB, stays on when I disconnect it but if I turn it off I can't turn it back on again. It is showing a "battery low" warning and I tried to charge it via the USB last night, but it seems to stop charging after a while and despite being left for a good time last night, this morning it is the same and I've had another battery low warning.

I've just found the full pdf manual online, and have found (on page 80) a reference to it not always behaving stably when connected via a USB hub. I'm going to try to charge it via a direct port and see if that fixes it.

Hello! i would like to send a recording that i made on my olympus voice recorder to a friend via email. is this possible and how. thanks!

Yes it is should have the usb cable that came with the machine...plug it in and connect to your PC...the PC will detect the recorder as a removeable drive...browse to the folder where the audio file is located and send it as an attachment via e-mail. If you have lost your manual go to to download manuals.

Cannot transfer VN-4100pc files to PC

Well ive been having the same problem and managed to solve it on my own because olympus isnt very much help.

Im using window 7 at the moment. I had all their drivers and software that they claimed was needed but the real fix was going into device manager when the DVR is plugged in, right clicking the DVR and click on update drivers. Select the option for it to search automatically online and once it has completed, open up "digital wave player" and the device should show that it's connected. Transfering and viewing files can now be done.

This worked for me, hope it helps others aswell.

Can't get the software to detect the device

should be no compatibility problem.. not with xp... but you can check two different things... first check the "safely remove hardware" icon usually beside the time in the system tray. when you click on it once, it should say safely remove usb mass storage device drive *: (star representing drive letter), if no letter comes up then no drive letter is assigned and will have to go thru drive letter assignment.

the next thing would be in device manager in system properties... it should be recognized as usb mass storage device and disappear if you unplug your device. if not then the driver may need updating through microsoft

i would call Oly tech support so they can walk you thru the getting your device to work properly
