Can I transfer to my computer?

Hi.
I keep reading about people downloading recordings from their devices to the computer, but I can't find the USB port on mine. Can you tell me how to do it?
Thanks.

This IC Recorder doesn't feature the USB port. However, you can transfer the files by connecting the Headphone OUT of the IC Recorder to the LINE IN of the Computer. Then, use any Sound Recording Software. You can also use the Sound Recorder Software that is pre installed in the Windows Operating System.

Are there drivers available to download from a VN-480-PC to a MAC? Or any other way to transfer file format to work on a MAC? Thanks! Tony


Hi

the voice recorder should work instantly when plugged into the mac, it should show up as a removable stroage device, or a removable drive, like any other external hard drive or usb stick would on a mac.

you don't need a driver to transfer or listen to the recordings from the recorder on a mac.

Downloading recordings


HI a quick search reveals that Quick Link is required to transfer Voice memos to PC.

However in the Owners Manual here it dosn't mention it. (Click the link to see the PDF)

The Quick Search link there does have a menu for wav playing Software. But as a USB storage device I would suspect that when you plug it into a computer, and it does it's automatic drive install, the device should pop up as an additonal Drive in the "My Computer" window. Try opening the My Computer, and plugging the device in with the Mini USB cord you have, and see if a new drive icon pops into the window, If so, that's what you're looking for.

The Specs say the device contains four folders that can contain up to 100 files each. They're most likely WAV files.

Good luck with that.
Richard.

CANNOT TRANSFER AUDIO FILES FROM WS-100 OLYMPUS VOICE RECORDER TO PC (Windows XP)


I wrote this for the Olympus VN-3100PC although it may work with this device as well.

Try this:

This problem can typically be solved by unplugging the device from your computer's USB port and plugging it in to another USB port on the same computer.

Also be sure you have Olympus Digital Wave Player installed and open with your Transfer Options set to Auto Transfer. To do this, follow the steps below:

Open Digital Wave Player > select Transfer from the menu > select Transfer Options > under Auto Transfer, check the box which reads "Transfer all audio files after detecting Recorder."

Download Sony ICD-B25 digital recorder to computer


I have found conflicting information on this recorder. According to product specs on Amazon.comUK This recorder has no computer connection.

If this product description is wrong you should see a USB connection somewhere on the recorder. Just connect the USB cable from recorder to your computer. If you did not receive a USB cable with your recorder you will have to buy one. You will have to determine if you need a mini or regular USB cable. Then double click on my computer. You should see the device listed there. Double click on the Sony device icon. The files on your recorder should now be showing. You should then be able to drag the files to a folder of your choosing on your computer.
