Purchased an Olympus VN-4100PV digital voice recorder a couple of months ago at Radioshack. (no software came with it)
Recently purchased new PC with Vista 64-bit. Recorder will not work.
Called Olympus today, 12-3-08 and was told no driver is going to be
issued to remedy this situation, thus rendering my device useless.
Thanks for nothing Olympus product support.
This is the info off their site regarding their vista update. It has worked on my new laptop. However, the VN-3100PC is not compatible with anything that runs 64 bit.The following is the url and the info regarding Vista Compatibility. <Best to all>
This download updates the Digital Wave Player software bundled with
Olympus VN-*PC series digital voice recorders from version 2.1.1 to
2.1.4. It enables Digital Wave Player versions 2.0 and later to run on
Windows Vista systems
Olympus has provided new software for VN recorders to used with VISTA plus a few updates.
Uninstall the Digital Wave Player
Uninstall the recorder in device manager
Download and install the New digital wave player,
then go to Olympus america and download all VISTA related updates. Once you have installed and updated the Digital Wave Player software, plug in the recorder and Windows will use the Olympus Driver (not digitally signed) to install and the Digital Wave player software will open automatically.
I have Windows Vista Home Premium. I do not have my original Olympus disc. I downloaded the driver from driver guide (http://members.driverguide.com/driver/detail.php?driverid=583812) > installed driver (in this case pencam.exe. After installing the Olympus software I hooked the USB cable up, turned on my w-10 recorder and let Windows begin it's search.
I manually pointed it to the pencam folder where it proceeded to load the drivers successfully. I am now able to transfer my files successfully. Hope this helps in some way.
