Most likely the problem is " or something" .
I'm sure you know Windows Vista has issues with many things, even if the Recorder's software claims compatibility.
I know, that does not help at all, but there is a way around the issue.
Crude? Pehaps. Effective? Absolutely!

I use a patch cable between the AUDIO IN on my PC and the EAR on the recorder.
Since the ouput of the recorder is monoaural, all you need is a mono (2 wire) lenght of cable with a standard 3mm plug at each end. I made it myself, but I guess Radio Shack may have somethinng like that.
If they don't have it, then a STEREO cable (3 wires) will work just fine.

To record the sound I use Audacity. It's a freebie and pretty straightforward to use.

After you've plugged it in, all you need to do is start Audacity and then playback the files from your recorder.
Then you can convert them to MP3 or whatever.
Feel free to drop me an email if I can be of more help.

on Windows XP, you will need to convert those files into 16bit cd audio quality. You can do this thru Sound Recorder on the computer. Just make that you change the file name before converting. Open up sound recorder, open up file, save as, convert, then change quality to cd quality then ok. After it is saved in 16 bit format, open Windows Media Player and then burn.
