When I connect the recorder into the computer via the USB, I get a power surge error. Tried resetting several times as per instructions, but does not work. Other gadgets have no problem in the USB ports.

Ok, try this, works for me: - Remove the batteries- Insert its again- Connect the recorder via usb to pc- Copy one by one each archive you need to recover, after copy delete them from the recorder- Copy SYSTEM, RECORDER AND MANUALS FOLDER to pc- Format from the pc the recorder (i use a mac - disk utility) yes it is, ERASE!- Copy again the folders: SYSTEM-RECORDER-MANUALS- Unplug the recorder, remove the batteries, insert again- Turn on the recorder, it will display a different error, format the recoder, it will restore and reset the systems files.- It works for me!-
if you can connect via USB try that first. Your computer will see it as a storage device and give it a drive letter. you can open it up and selet all the audio files and move them to a folder (you assign) on your computer. If you don't have a way to hook up via USB you can reord the audio file into your computer by hooking up to the earphone jack on the recorder and the to the Pink audio in jack on your mac. open the software that you use for recording audio (garage band for example, or sound recorder). you will have to do this is "real" time however so if you have a lot of recordinng on the device it may take awhile to get the all transferred.
if it came with a driver..just run the driver again in the computer and be sure the installation goes OK ..After that restart the PC ..and plug the recorder..it should see it if this was the issue ..Another thing is to plug the device powered and on ..and check the screen of the recorder ..cause sometimes you have to confirm the pc connection ..or ..card reading ..from it .. If you do not have a driver just check the manufacturer's site..and see if it needs one or it is a plug and play device ..if it is a plug and play ..try to reset the recorder..(look for the reset button in a hole accessible with a stylus or sharp object ) or ..in the menu ..select the reset to factory settings .. In the last case you will have to reinstall the firmware in the recorder cause it is damaged and not seen by the usb port ..This is the case for those that are plug and play ..and have the driver in the root folder and accidentally deleted.. If it is not damaged or so ..follow these instructions to install the driver built in .. http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/10080/session/L3NpZC9xblNKemdraw%3D%3D/kw/vr5230%20driver/r_id/103795/sno/0 anyway ..plug it and check the my computer folder and see if it has a separate drive for its root (may be in the disk drive sections )
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.
I have found conflicting information on this recorder. According to product specs on Amazon.comUK This recorder has no computer connection.
If this product description is wrong you should see a USB connection somewhere on the recorder. Just connect the USB cable from recorder to your computer. If you did not receive a USB cable with your recorder you will have to buy one. You will have to determine if you need a mini or regular USB cable. Then double click on my computer. You should see the device listed there. Double click on the Sony device icon. The files on your recorder should now be showing. You should then be able to drag the files to a folder of your choosing on your computer.
1/ Are you on a business network? The most common reason for this error is because the user has mapped network drives on low drive letters e.g. mapped drives on E F G H I etc. When you connect recorder windows trys to assign the physically available drive letter. However that drive is being used by a mapped network drive so windows simply doesnt recognise the newly attched device hence the sanyo software not recognising the device.
2/ Some Dell PC's struggle to supply enough power to all USB ports so try connecting to the back of the PC or removing some USB devices and reconnect the B130.
This error cannot be produced without a recorder being connect so it recognised to a point just. Just not correctly.
what can happen is that the voltage supplied to the usb port is not enough to power the recorder to transfer data, assuming you have tried other usb ports, and tried leaving other connected peripherals out connected to a usb port, it is always better to use a mains powered usb hub when connecting things like mp3 players and digital recorders as some motherboards, especially low powered units struggle with some peripherals.
