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.

I have a JNC digital concept power voice II

The part which shows the files to be downloaded from the JVC recorder does not open when the software starts up. It only opens when the recorder is detected attached to the USB port. I suggest 1. Start the software. 2. connect the JVC recorder to the PC with the USB cable. 3. Turn the JVC recoder ON. The recoder display says "PC link" and the files to download show up in Power Voice II on the PC. Michael C

ICR-B130 Handheld Digital Recorder

Ha this is a greatly contested two posiblities.

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.

When I've tried to install the Driver using the disk I got with my camera, at the stage where it asks me to MODIFY REPAIR or REMOVE, the software I get the following showing up on display boxes:
