I was patient and looked again. It turned out I was accessing the the CD drive rather than the IC recorder. I'd had success before, but was puzzled when it didn't work this time on a new laptop. I took out the CD and it worked. I may just have missed seeing the ic recorder icon cuz I was doing too much at once.

I found another alternative to this - using cmd - subst <drive_letter>: C:\<YourWorkingDirectory> make sure the user or allusers have full permissions to this directory. in the voice media menu, your drop down menu will now have this drive to work with or from. Important - this method is a virtual drive not an actual long term mapped drive - meaning - when you log off or restart the machine - cmd method will have to be executed again - i created a script that does it for me and then launches the application - its easier that way. also, if this does not work then make the working dir a share with all users permissions on it and network map a drive letter to it (not a virtual mapping) - then add this share to your alias and registry paths instead hope this helps

I have panasonic voice recorder rr-us395 and no software, i want to download recordings to my computer

1) Download and install Windows XP mode in Windows 7 as the Voice editing software does not work in Windows 7
2) Download the propriety voice editing software for Panasonic

3) Install the voice editing 1.0 software onto the virtual machine and you are good to go.

I tested on the Panasonic RR-US395.

Install and use Windows XP Mode in Windows 7

I am on MAC platform and would like to convert VM1 file to any audio format read by the MAC.

The only way to convert VM1 files to anything else is to use the Panasonic voice editing software. I have tried several other methods that claim to work but none of them have. The only way I was to do this was:
1.install a Windows XP operating system onto an old computer or get access to a Windows XP, Vista, or 2000.
2. I found an old Panasonic voice recorder off eBay that still had the software and purchased it (Panasonic RR-US470)
3. Installed the software
4. This is where it got tricky. The voice editing software doesn't recognize .vm1 files from other sources. The recorder and its software create its own file structure but if you put your own .vm1 files inside them, even with the same name, it still won't read it. Unless you do this.
A. Let's say you have 20 .vm1 files you want to convert you must first record 20 different voice recordings onto your voice recorder. These recordings can be like a second long.
B. Attach the voice recorder and move the new recordings to the folder using the software. The software will name the files MB001.vm1...MB002, etc. They will be hidden also.
C. Name your old files (the ones you want to convert to the same name as the 20 new recordings.)
D. Delete the new recordings from your computer and replace them with the files you want to convert. (the must have the same name).
E. Your software will now see the old files you want to convert. (On the software if you click outside the folder they are located and click back into it, you will now see the same files. It will still have the same duration as your new recordings but the file size will be bigger and you can listen to it and it will now be your old files.
F. Convert these to wave.

Once you get your .vm1 file converted smash your recorder and never use Panasonic ever again. There may be an easier way to do this, but I've tried many ways and nothing worked except this.

Voice Editing 1.0 premium Update for Vista

Try this

Uninstall the software.

Reinstall the software

After installing the software update from Panasonic, plug your recorder into the computer. Go into 'Control Panel' and select 'Hardware and Sound'. Then Select 'Device Manager' and select 'Universal Serial Bus controllers'. You should have a device for 'Panasonic IC Recorder', it might be flagged yellow, right click on it and select 'uninstall'. Unplug your recorder from the computer, replug your recorder into the computer, the Device Manager screen will refresh and you should have 'Panasonic IC Recorder' back in the list. Try the Voice software, you should have in the drive list 'IC recorder'. Transfer your files.

It worked for me,
