Olympus VN-480 digtial recorder - can't get my files to play back

I've used this many times before. Conducted two hours of interviews and the files seem to be gone. Something is clearly there - it gives me the right "remaining time" indication, which tells me that the files are there and not erased (I hope). The hold button is off, and I've checked every menu folder. Nothing! I'm getting desperate.

Thanks.

If the power is interupted or improperly unplugged from the computer, the files may be corrupted... try to play the files and while playing move them to another folder... this may get your files back... else you will need to clear the recorder by pressing stop and erase at the same time for about 3 seconds.

I recorded meeting minutes to my digital OLYMPUS VN-480 PC voice recorder and want to transfer the recording on it to my Dell Inspirion/1100 laptop. Could I transfer the audio from the headphone jack to...


Hello,

yes, it is possible. You will connect the earphone jack from your voice recorder to Mic of your laptop. Then you will be needing a wave software on your laptop, download the wave software from the internet, open the wave file, then press play on your voice recorder and the minutes will be recorded into your laptop as a wave files.

But the easiest method of tranferring the minutes is by using the usb cable of your OLYMPUS VN-480 PC voice recorder. If you don't have it you can purchase it, then connect it from your OLYMPUS VN-480 PC voice recorder to the usb of your computer and it will be read like a flash drive.

After that, go to my computer and you will see a drive representing the OLYMPUS VN-480 PC voice recorder, open the drive and you will see your minutes, then simply create a folder on your computer, and copy, paste the minutes into the created folder. And the would be all.

God luck.

I deleted a recorded file by mistake from the DWP vn-480 series and am trying hard to retrieve it somehow!! Is there any hope of retrieval???


Unfortunately this recorder model is designed with flash memory and once the files are erased they are gone. There are some companies that do specialize in flash memory recovery (Olympus is not one of them). You can go to google and search for flash memory recovery specialists. However this is a very costly process as it involves sending the device to these companies for them to do the recovery process.

Is there a way to get the files off my Olympus VN-1000 recorder onto my computer?


You could get a cable to connect from the headphone socket to the line in/mic on your computer and record the files like any other external audio device. Not perfect but it will work...
