File transfer VN-480PC doesn't work on notebook (Vista)

Installed full version software(download) for Olympus VN-480PC on a new ASUS notebook (running Windows Vista): notebook recognizes recorder when attached, but doesn't transfer any files (indicates 'transferring' at the bottom of the frame, but the usual pop-up frame doesn't appear).   
Note: file transfer works perfectly on PC with Windows XP

I had the same problem on XP. The long instructions with downloading updates for wave player did not help. I managed to solve this problem.

Solution:

Go to Control Panel and press Add Hardware. Search for new hardware and allow windows to go on the net to search for the drivers. It will find and install drivers. After that functionality in the Digital Wave Player will become active and you can transfer your files onto pc.

Download the Digital Wave Player full version from the Olympus UK site
http://www.olympus.co.uk/consumer/2590_software.cfm The American site only has the software updates and not the full versions of this necessary driver. You may have just downloaded the update previously and this is why you can't execute, because you don't have the actual program installed. Good Luck.
