Question about Sony ICD-MX20 Digital Voice Recorder

1 Answer

PC Connection Problem

I seem to have the same problem as listed above.

I have installed the latest Digital Voice Editor v3.1, but there seems to be a problem for my PC to recognise my ICD-MX20.

1) when i try connecting the MX20, there is a moment that the PC detects the new hardware, but after which the MX20 hangs and continues to attempt the PC connection.

2) Even the drop down box in the DVE 3.1 does not list MX series as a recorder.

What am i doing wrong and how do i reset the driver for my MX20, which i think is the source of the problem.

Please Advice.

I would appreciate Windows 7 software for Sony ICD-P630F so I can connect it to my PC. Thank you

According to Sony, you should be able to connect it to your Windows 7 PC provided that it isn't 64 bit.

All you would need to do is make sure you are using the Sony Digital Voice Editor Version 3.3.01 because it appears to be the latest software to support this particular device on Windows 7.

I have olympus digital voice recoder vn . 480 oc and windows vista, not working, not transfer and not identifiquet the olympus digital... in the list of CD windows vista is out I need of sofware for...

There are many steps in installing Digital Wave Player on VISTA, it is important to follow every step since installing Digital Wave Player on VISTA is dependent on this process.
Install a VN recorder on VISTA
1. Make sure the device has been uninstalled in device manager
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
A security warning window will open,
13. Choose "install anyway" and the device will install.
When successfully installed you will see the "other devices" disappear and a VNUSB device with a "VN series device"
underneath it appear at the bottom of the device manager list. There will be a blue question mark next to the device. 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 copy files from Sony ICD-SX57 Recorder to PC using Digital Voice Editor

I have the same issue with this recorder and Vista. According to Sony, the new version should be available for download "sometime this month" so I'm holding my breath. There is a way to get your files onto your computer, but it is pretty annoying when you have a bunch. But it works, so here it is. Select the specific recording that you want to save, then click the "email" button. If you use Outlook like me, an email window will open up and your selected file will be attached. YOu can then save it from the outlook email window without even actually sending it. Once it is saved on your computer, the DVE commands that allow you to convert the file do work, so have a ball! This sure does suck, no? Mark
