Question about Olympus VN-4100PC Digital Voice Recorder

1 Answer

I cant transfer files from recorder to my pc

In the past I have been able to transfer files w/o problem but now I am unable to do so.  When I connect to the computer a window  opens which shows both the recorder and computer files and eveything looks normal as in the past. When I drag a file from the recorder to the computer it starts to transfer opening the transfer window but closes very quickly with no files being transferred.  I have tried everything I can think with no luck.  Hope someone can offer a solution.  I have re-installed the software as well.

    The Olympus software and drivers for the Digital Wave Player alre already installed on my PC, which has Windows XP and when I connect the recorder to the PC the Digital Wave Player software shows that there are files on the recorder. But when I try to transfer them the transfer box opens only for a second then closes and no transfer takes place. Does anyone have an suggestions?

How do I transfer recorded movies to a external hard drive?


That depends. What device did you use to record these movies? If you recorded a movie using a DVD recorder, connect your external hard drive to a PC device which has a DVD rom. Go into the files, copy and past the file to your external drive.

I cannot transfer the recording to my computer


Hi Catherine,

If you cannot transfer your recording to your computer this could be because of several issues :-

  1. Low disk space
  2. Camera not properly connected to your computer
  3. Incorrect method of copying files
The solution i would suggest to you is that :-

  1. First , please connect your computer in the data storage mode , using the cable that you get with your camcorder.
  2. Once connected , go to the directory where you would have all your files which have been recorded already.
  3. Select those files that you want to copy by pressing CTRL key and clicking on each file that you want to copy and press ctrl + C key.
  4. Then paste the file on your hardisk , you can create a folder on your desktop and put the files in it by using the paste command from the edit menu or by right clicking and choosing the paste option.

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.
