    The olympus digital wave player will not play my digital 4100pc when i connected to my computer

    no driver, makes this nothing but a glorified tape recorder, have to have the device to listen to files and must keep them on until your are done with them.

    Purchased an Olympus VN-4100PV digital voice recorder a couple of months ago at Radioshack. (no software came with it)
    Recently purchased new PC with Vista 64-bit. Recorder will not work. Called Olympus today, 12-3-08 and was told no driver is going to be issued to remedy this situation, thus rendering my device useless.
    Thanks for nothing Olympus product support.

    I just bought the VN-41000 and when I try to convert its files into the computer it says I need the disk. I put the disk into the computer and my recorder didn't seam to have any files showing up but it reaally did. I guess maybe a download will work. Not sure.

    I am extremely disappointed that this vn4100 did not come with the software needed and I can not download it. I am upset with the fact that I am in a two week training and missed 2 days of VALUABLE recording time already simply because I can not empty the current recording contents to my computer. It is very sad to see the attempts that have been tried by others and the (unsupport) negative support olympus has given to its consumers. Not to say that this was a $300 recorder, but my dollar of any amount these days looks like one million to me when it is wasted!

Download the digital player from this link.

Plug in the voice recorder again and it should now find the software automatically through window's automatic hardware finder wizard.

In all fairness, Beerlal posted this solution but to a slightly different question.

Hope this helps

1. Download the generic wave player. It is on the Olympus UK site.

2. Download and install the wave layer update specific to the Olympus VN 4100pc. Oila! You can now transfer the files to a PC (no mac software)

3. In the future, never buy a gadget that doesn't show up as an external drive on your machine.

Panasonic Voice Recorder RR-US361

I had the same problem! Looked everywhere for driver/software for my Panasonic RR-US361.
Finally after hours of searching and useless downloads I found the solution:
Go here:

You can sign up for a FREE membership and just go through their sales pages selecting 'no thanks' etc. Eventually you will be given the link to download the driver and most importantly the voice studio software to run the recorder! This WORKS! btw, it will not work on vista though only XP etc.
