Question about Olympus VN-4100PC Digital Voice Recorder

1 Answer

Olympus VN-480PC isn't being detected by digital wave software

I have Windows XP and an Olympus VN 480-PC. I've downloaded and installed the Digital Wave Player, restarted the computer and plugged in the recording device. My PC picks it up, and when I click on the Device Detector icon in the system tray, it registers it as well. However, when I go into Digitial Wave Player, it acts as if there's no device plugged in at all. What do I do? I'm certain this is more of a DWP problem than an XP problem or something, but regardless of whose fault it is, I want it fixed.

Solution:
Go to Control Panel and press Add Hardware. Search for new hardware and allow windows to go on the net to search for the drivers. It will find and install drivers. After that functionality in the Digital Wave Player will become active and you can transfer your files onto pc.
