    I have the same issue and am in the middle of Africa trying to get some research done with a totally useless piece of kit I specifically bought for the trip. Nice one Olympus.



    I was trying to copy the files to a flash card as a backup and now they have all disappeared. Anyone have any ideas of how to retrieve them? I did a search on my laptop of all files with the names I gave them but it is like they never existed.

Olympus VN-3100PC drivers for Vista x64


Unfortunately there is no way to make this recorder compatible to Vista 64 bit operating system. You may want to call Olympus customer service and see if they can do an exchange to a VN-3200PC or a VN-5200PC as these recorders are both compatible to that operating system. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3.

Need to locate a Driver for digital recorder


There are many steps in installing Digital Wave Player on VISTA 32 bit operating systems only, it is important to follow every step since installing Digital Wave Player on VISTA is dependent on this process.
Install a VN recorder on VISTA
*************************
1. Make sure the device has been uninstalled in device manager
2. Make sure the old version of digital wave player is uninstalled.
{Delete Temp files in Internet Explorer --Tools--Internet Options --Delete Files-- Delete offline content--OK}
3. Install digital wave player (The newest Version).

4. Install the 2.1.4 vista update

5. Restart the computer.
6. Plug in the VN recorder to the USB port and turn the recorder on.
"Found new hardware" will appear,
7. install automatically.
This may fail, if you see VNUSB device, skip the final steps and proceed to Digital Wave Player to Download files from the Digital Voice Recorder.
If you will see "Other devices" listed in Device manager with "digital voice recorder" underneath it.
8. Right click on the "digital voice recorder"
9. Select update driver from the pop up menu.
10. Choose the browse computer Option
11. In the next window browse to the location that you downloaded the Digital Wave Player application to
12. Click Next
A security warning window will open,
13. Choose "install anyway" and the device will install.
When successfully installed you will see the "other devices" disappear and a VNUSB device with a "VN series device"
underneath it appear at the bottom of the device manager list. There will be a blue question mark next to the device. At this point you can close the device manager and the properties window and open Digital Wave Player. You will see the recorder listed underneath the recorder folder and be able to download and use the program normally now.

I can't transfer my files from recorder to pc


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."
