Can't get PC to recognize audio files on Olympus DS-40

When I plug in the recorder, the icon appears for a remote storage device in my menu bar. However, when I use Windows Explorer and click on my computer the device doesn't appear in the menu so I can't transfer files.

I was able to transfer files the very first time I connected the recorder to my PC but it hasn't worked since. Help!

How to restore audio files from formated Olympus digital recorder


You should stop recording new ones to prevent the old ones from being overwritten. If your digital recorder has a memory card, take it out and insert it to your computer with a card reader. If the device has built-in memory, just connect it to your PC directly. On your computer, you need a video/audio recovery program. Fine one, install and run it. The software will help you scan lost audio files from your recorder, then it'll show you what it's found. Choose the files you want and hit the "Recover" button to start recovery process.

If you're a Mac user, please feel free to try this Mac based video/audio recovery app. http://www.leawo.org/photo-recovery-mac/

Recognition of recorder


Does the computer recognize the Olympus DS-30 being connected to it at all? If not, do you happen to have another USB cable that you could try using? Either way, you should try connecting it to a different USB port on your computer, as you might have happened to connect it to one that doesn't work.

File Recovery from Olympus VN-6200 PC voice recorder


Hi,

First things first: DO NOT take any more videos or audio with the recorder that you want to recover files from in case you may quite possibly ruin your chances of voice memo file recovery.

Then connect your recorder to another PC with a recovery program installed. Photo Recovery Software (also recover Voice memos, audio and video files) is right what you need to use if you are running Windows. If you are Mac OS X users, turn to Data Recovery for Mac.

But you should remember - the more you use your recorder, the less likely you may be able to recover the deleted files back! So STOP using the device ASAP. Good Luck!

We have given our clients the DS-40 recorders. One of the clients is having a problem with the computer automatically detecting the voice files. It worked for two days, then stopped. We went to the client,...


When the recorder is connected to the computer,it should be recognized as a device.Have your client go to my computer and click on the drive that represents the recorder and open the files from there.Once the drivers are in place,nothing should change.

Lost my DS-40 audio files after upload. Can I recover them?


you can use card recovery software that helped me before
1. Do not save any new file to memory card.
2. Connect your card to computer. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in My Computer.
3. Download recovery software, recommended one is this photo recovery (simply because i was using it and it worked)

4. Install and open the data recovery program, select your memory drive, and click 'Next' button to start scanning process which will find your deleted files.

Recovering deleted files from olympus VN-4100PC voice recorder


Chances are there to recover such kind of deleted files from your Olympus recorder.

First things first: DO NOT take any more videos or audio with the recorder that you want to recover files from in case you may quite possibly ruin your chances of voice memo file recovery.

Then connect your device to a PC, and have a try of Photo Recovery (also recover audio, voice memos, video files etc), a data recovery program which is good at recovering media files lost. If you are Mac OS X users, turn to Data Recovery for Mac.

Lastly, I hope you good luck. Again you should remember - the more you use your recorder, the less likely you may be able to recover the deleted files back! So STOP using the device ASAP.

Can't get the software to detect the device


should be no compatibility problem.. not with xp... but you can check two different things... first check the "safely remove hardware" icon usually beside the time in the system tray. when you click on it once, it should say safely remove usb mass storage device drive *: (star representing drive letter), if no letter comes up then no drive letter is assigned and will have to go thru drive letter assignment.

the next thing would be in device manager in system properties... it should be recognized as usb mass storage device and disappear if you unplug your device. if not then the driver may need updating through microsoft

i would call Oly tech support so they can walk you thru the getting your device to work properly
