I am using the VN-4100PC on a vista 32 bit machine just fine. Download the Digital Wave Player and it contains a drivers folder. Point the "vista locate driver" to the VN folder under drivers. It will ask to verify this since the driver is NOT signed. Just ALLOW it and continue. Update the Digital Wave Player to 2.1.4 (VISTA COMPATIBLE). Restart the machine and VIOLA, it works. GOOD LUCK.

Does anybody have the drivers for the olympus V.R VN-4100pc

Posted on May 01, 2008

Olympus still does not have VN-4100 pc drivers for Vista.

Posted on Mar 17, 2008

I have the same problem .. to solve it, I connect my recorder to another computer with Windows 98 and I retrieve the WAV files, then transfer them to my laptop which is running on a Vista platform. It is hectic though, but did solve the problem.

Posted on Nov 15, 2007

Unfortunately Olympus has not released drivers for Windows Vista yet. Try e-mailing them requesting updated drivers.
