Where do I download a driver for Philips Speechmike Classic 6264 that can be used with Windows 7?

Unfortunately I cannot find any references to driver installation for versions of Windows beyond Windows XP. The possibly means the hardware is not natively compatible with Windows 7. You can try installing the Windows XP driver using either compatability mode or if push comes to shove you can use the XPMode virtual machine to run the device in a true Windows XP environment with Windows 7 Virtual PC. I would contact Philips customer support for more information.

My PC can't recognize my Panasonic IC recorder RR-US500

Hi there,
Which operating system are you using? This recorder has known issues with windows vista and windows 7 as well as Mac OS.
If you're using one of the above windows operating systems, try right clicking on the installer (setup.exe) file, select "properties". When the properties windows opens, select the compatability tab, and choose windows XP SP3 from the drop down menu, as well as click the box next to "run this program as administrator". That should run the installer as though you are running windows XP, and it should work.

I own an Olympus DS-4000 and the software it comes with is not recognizing (detecting) the device upon connecting it through the cradle or directly from the device to my computer using the OEM transfer...

Olympus uses a Device detector utility to detect the recorder. Some other applications can keep the recorder from being detected. Check for Adobe Download manager running in the tray. If it is, disable and it may work. Some printer controle managers also can cause this not to work.

Also, check if the recorder is listed as a removable drive under My Computer.

Window 98 Professional does recognize Panasonic RR-US395 since it was removed from the usb port accidentally before being removed properly. I can see that the recorder is connected but can't find the files...

Windows 98 Professional?

I don't think there is such a version. It's probably either Windows 98 or Windows XP Professional.

If a reboot does not help, the simplest thing to try is to reinstall the device driver registry entries for the USB port.

Assuming you have Windows XP, right-click "My Computer" and select "Manage". Under "System Tools", select "Device Manager". If Windows is detecting problems with any of the device drivers, the Device Manager entry will be flagged with a exclamation point caution sign. Otherwise, you can try removing all of the entries under "Universal Serial Bus controllers". To remove the entry, right-click it and select "Uninstall". Remember, this only removes the entry from the registry. Unless the drivers are corrupted or missing, you will likely not need the install disk to reinstall the entry. Once you are done, reboot and Windows will detect the USB controller(s) does not have an entry and will prompt you to reinstall it. Take the option to let Windows find the drivers for you. If this procedure does not work, try uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers for the device. If that does not work, you likely have a hardware problem - bad cable, bad connection, etc.

If you do indeed have Windows 98, it's been a while, but the above procedure should be similar.

Olympus Voice Recorder WS100

The recorder is not provided with any installation software. It is considered a plug and play device and should connect to Windows XP or Windows Vista and display as a removable disk drive. You can then copy and paste the files from that drive to your hard drive. The files will play using Winodws Media Player.

Install a VN recorder on VISTA

2. Make sure the old version of digital wave player is uninstalled.
{Delete Temp files in Internet Explorer --Tools--Internet Options --Delete Files-- Delete offline content--OK}
3. Install digital wave player (The newest Version).
4. Install the 2.1.4 vista update
5. Restart the computer.
6. Plug in the VN recorder to the USB port and turn the recorder on.
"Found new hardware" will appear,
7. install automatically.
This may fail, if you see VNUSB device, skip the final steps and proceed to Digital Wave Player to Download files from the Digital Voice Recorder.
If you will see "Other devices" listed in Device manager with "digital voice recorder" underneath it.
8. Right click on the "digital voice recorder"
9. Select update driver from the pop up menu.
10. Choose the browse computer Option
11. In the next window browse to the location that you downloaded the Digital Wave Player application to
12. Click Next

At this point you can close the device manager and the properties window and open Digital Wave Player. You will see the recorder listed underneath the recorder folder and be able to download and use the program normally now.

Can't get the software to detect the device

should be no compatibility problem.. not with xp... but you can check two different things... first check the "safely remove hardware" icon usually beside the time in the system tray. when you click on it once, it should say safely remove usb mass storage device drive *: (star representing drive letter), if no letter comes up then no drive letter is assigned and will have to go thru drive letter assignment.

the next thing would be in device manager in system properties... it should be recognized as usb mass storage device and disappear if you unplug your device. if not then the driver may need updating through microsoft

i would call Oly tech support so they can walk you thru the getting your device to work properly

Denpa drivers required for online download

Depends what OS you are using. If you are using Windows ME/2000/XP/Vista then you do not need drivers for device to be recognized by PC when it is connected via USB cable (operating system will automatically work out what drivers are needed and configure so that the PC 'sees' the device - once seen it will show up in my computer as 'removable disk' icon).
If you are using Win98 then you need to install the driver. I haven't found anywhere on the Web where the files are located but they may be on the Windows 98 CD itself (they are identified as HB_UDISK_DRIVERS).
For example, from the installation CD the full path would be:
D:\HB_UDI~1\WIN98\HB__UDISC.INF where the CD-ROM drive is called the D drive (depends on hard disk configuration).
There is another question on here where someone has posted a link to a site to download software...not sure if the device driver files are available there. Note that the drivers merely enable your PC to recognize the device - the won't be any use in encoding/decoding/editing the files; that's done by separate software programs.
Good luck. Repost if you're having no joy...I may be able to dig out my installation CD and burn/mail you a copy. I'll check back in a week or so.
