Question about RCA Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I can't get the computer to recognize when I plug the RCA VR5220-A into my laptop. I've never been able to load the software that I thought was supposed to automatically load when I plugged the USB into the laptop. I have Vista, if that makes a difference.

    I haven't tried it on other computers yet. It is powered on when I plug it in. It says pc link.

    I have now tried plugging it into a different computer that has XP instead of Vista, and the computer recognized it was there, but I still can't open the files. Please email me back at kittyg1981@aol.com.



    Thanks,

    Dana

And the microphone is definitely powered on when you plug it in? Has it worked on other computers? It's possible the hardware is bad, but give me more info. here and I can help.

Thanks

What do I do if the software on the recorder has been erased and I cannot retrieve the recordered infor from my PC.


If you insert the vr5220 into the computer USB port, it will reinstall the RCA Digital Voice Manager for you. If it does not, you can search on VR5220 for a download location http://www.rcaaudiovideo.com/audio/voicerecorders/?sku=VR5220

at the bottom of the page is a Download tab which has the DVM, download and do the reinstall

Hi neither of my computers is recognizing my voice recorder. My laptop has xp and I have used it before, but now its not working. I thought it may have been a prob with my new desk top since I have windows...


Your best bet is to play the recordings through the headphone connector to a pc audio line-in connector and capture the audio using something like Audacity. Then output them using audacity to mp3 to play on your mp3 player.

These units are notorious for their failing USB feature.

My computer is not reconizing my recorder. I have connected in the past with no problems. Is there software I can download?


The available software is here: http://www.rcaaudiovideo.com/audio/voicerecorders/?sku=VR5220 . Click on the download link. As far as I know the software is for Win2000, XP and Vista.

I hope this helps.

I have about 10 interviews on my recorder. It recorded fine, but when I plugged it into my computer it says I need to format it. Is there anyway to get this information off of here, even if I have to...


DO NOT format the recorder. That will wipe it clean. The computer does not recognize the device. There must be a piece of software needed to allow the computer to recognize it. If you have an old pc forget it. Dont know about macs.

I MOVED RECENTLY AND LOST MY MANUAL AND SOFTWARE FOR MY RCA MODEL #VR5220-A RECORDER; CAN YOU DOWNLOAD IT TO ME? I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE IT AS I USE THE DEVICE FOR SCHOOL.


I found the manual for the RCA 5220 at the RCA support website. It is in PDF form and needs Adobe to download. Adobe is available for free most anywhere. Here is the site I found it:

Hope this helps
