Question about Olympus VN-240 Digital Voice Recorder

1 Answer

Digital voice recorders

I cannot find a voice recorder that will work on a Vista Ultimate P4 64 bit system. I have an Olympus VN-240 with the upgraded Vista software from the Olympus website. This unit is about 4 years old, worked well on my P3 but I'm willing to upgrade to a newer model if necessary. The digital wave player software works reasonably well but when I insert the USB cable, the driver for the actual recorder cannot be found on the computer, the OEM CD or online. I checked Olympus, Sony and Panasonics websites and none of their current products (as of Oct 2007) are compatible with a 64 bit system. As I am probably not the first person to purchase a 64 bit system and a voice recorder I am sure this problem has surfaced already.  I was wondering if their is a solution to this problem.

Can not find recordings on digital recorder using vista 64 byte system. system will pick up the recorder, I can open Digitl wave player but the are no recordings showing up to transfer.

Unfortunately the VN-4100PC is not compatible with a Vista 64 bit operating system. It will only work with a 32 bit operating system of Vista. You may want to call Olympus customer service and see if they can do an exchange for you to a VN-3200PC or a VN-5200PC as these recorders are both 64 bit compatible. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3. They are open from 8:30 am - 7pm EST.

No olympus digital recorder vn2100pc vista 64 bit driver

This is because this device will never be compatible with a 64 bit VISTA OS. Olympus now has a VN-3200PC or VN-5200PC that are compatible with the 64 bit VISTA OS platform.

Vn - 2100pc olympus voice recorder

I had the same problem with the VN-4100PC and 64-bit Vista, and have solved it by accessing the recorder under Windows XP in a Sun VirtualBox. This will probably work for the VN-2100PC
