Question about Sony ICD-BP150 Digital Voice Recorder
I have a Sony ICD-BP150 DVR with some interview recording that I did. I want to take the interview files off the recorder and save them on my computer so that I can edit and use them. My windows 7 system is not recognizing the DVR and despite the fact that I used the manufacturer's set up disc, it keeps saying that it can't find the drivers. I know this is an older version DVR and there might be compatibility problems, but these files are very important. Is there any way I can get them off?

An adapter will not fix the problem. The files cannot be transferred to a computer using a USB port. The files must be transferred analog using the recorder's headphone cord. The files are then recorded to the computer from the Sony recorder using a program such as Windows Recorder. The ICD-B500 has many great features but archiving to a computer is not one of them.

Sony does not support Windows 7 for this device (yet?)
However, Windows Vista uses the same driver model, so there is a good chance the Vista drivers and software work for under Windows 7, too. You may have to override some warnings from User Account Control (UAC) during install.

Unfortunately, Sony does not support this recorder under Win7 64-bit. See http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=ICDP520&SelectOS=27 for the available drivers. You can try the Vista or WinXP driver with the compatibility mode. (This may involve allowing unsigned drivers since there is no information on 64-bit compatibility on either the Sony or Microsoft Vista Compatibility site.)
To try this, download the driver and right click on the installer. Then choose Properties and then the Compatibility tab. Turn on Run program as Compatible with the appropriate OS. Then right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator.
I do not know if this will work. A method that will work is to use a computer (virtual, dual-boot, or true second machine) with an older version of Windows installed. If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you can create a virtual XP computer for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install them in order. Then install the XP software from the above site in the virtual computer and it will work. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS. Please note that the virtual computer can't share files directly with the main computer. You'll need to save files to external or removable media (optical media or flash drive, for example) to share them.
I hope this helps.
