    Do not buy this recorder!!!! Olympus states you cannot make audio cds from the audio files. My money was wasted!

    I am having same issue myself! You CAN make a CD, but it must be a DATA CD, don't choose audio. It cannot be played back on a CD music player, but can be played back on a laptop, for example. Its very frustrating. Good luck!

If you checked their website and did not see the drivers for download then you will need to contact them to have them send the drivers to you. Their telephone number is 888-553-4448 option 5 and then option 2 for voice recorders.

SOURCE: i can't transfer my files from recorder to pc

This problem can typically be solved by unplugging the device from your computer's USB port and plugging it in to another USB port on the same computer.

Also be sure you have Olympus Digital Wave Player installed and open with your Transfer Options set to Auto Transfer. To do this, follow the steps below:

Open Digital Wave Player > select Transfer from the menu > select Transfer Options > under Auto Transfer, check the box which reads "Transfer all audio files after detecting Recorder."

Transfer digital recording to computer to make CD


As there is no USB port on this IC Recorder, you can connect the Headphone OUT of the IC Recorder to the LINE IN of the Computer. Then, use any Sound Recorder Software to capture the files. You can also use the Sound Recorder Software preinstalled in the Computer. After transferring the recordings to the Computer, you can use any CD Burning Software to burn the files to a CD.

Voice Recorder-Files to CD?


Please follow the below solutions to create either an audio CD-ROM of .wav files or back-up
.wav files to a CD-ROM.
Problem: .Wav files downloaded to PC computer from the DW-90, VN Series, and DSS Files
created with DS Series recorders cannot be copied to a rewritable CD-ROM using Windows
Media Player to create an audio CD-ROM.
Explanation: These digital voice recorders create .wav files at 8kHZ, 12kHZ, or 22kHz
depending on the Quality setting. Digital Wave player software is used to download Wav files to
a PC computer from the DW or VN Series of recorders. DSS Player is used to download DSS
files from the DS Series recorders and convert them to Wav files. If Windows Media Player is
then used to copy the files to a rewritable CD-ROM to create an audio CD-ROM, the files will
not copy properly or an error message may appear. Windows Media Player can only create an
audio CD-ROM if the .wav file is 44.1kHZ, 16 bit stereo.
Solution: Follow the procedure below to convert the .wav files to 44.1 kHZ, 16 bit stereo. Then
use Windows Media Player to copy the files to a rewritable CD-ROM.
1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, click Entertainment, and then click Sound Recorder.
2. On the File menu, click Open.
3. In the Open dialog box, specify the name of the audio file that you want to convert, and
then click OK. Files are usually located at C:\Program Files\Olympus\Digital Wave
Player\Message\Folder A.
4. On the File menu, click Save As.
In the Save As dialog box, click Change.
In the Attributes box, click 44.100 kHz, 16 Bit, Stereo, and then click OK.
Click Save. After you convert your files, try to copy them to a CD-ROM again.

The model which I have has a built-in file that downloads to your PC that installs a program for converting your .voc files into either WAV or EXE. The program can be copied and shared as there is no registration, however it would appear designed to work specifically with this particular device.

Dowloading audio files onto my computer..


I have an Olympus recorder. I don't know if the software is similar but their software has a way of copying the files to folders in the software. These files can then be used in other audio programs such as ITunes if you want to transfer it to your Ipod or audio recording software so that you can drag and drop them into one file.

If you look in the folder where your voice manage software is, is there a folder where the audio files are being stored within the program?

Copy Files to a CD


You need to loacte the files on the unit and get them to your hard drive via the transfer function. Once on your machine use any cd (like Nero) creating program to back them up to a black cd. You have to make sure your computer has a cd burner.
