I just purchased a Sony ICD MX-20 Digiital Volce Recorder with Sony Digital Voice Editor (DVE) software version 2.3.1 and Dragon Naturally Speaking (DNS) version 8. The device works well but the software is frustrating me.
I've installed the DVE 2.3.1 on a PC with Windows XP SP 2 and am having setup problems. My model (IDC MX-20) does not appear in the drop down list of "models" and and I am unable to get files (podcasts) from my PC to the device. The manuals aren't much help; I've had some luck with websites.
Per advice found on the web I am logged on as administrator when loading the software but can't get the Sony software to work. What am I doing wrong? I would appreciate any help. By the way, I haven't set up DNS 8 yet.

Hi, There is Sony Digital Voice Editor Version 3.2.01 available to work on Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit. Click Sony Support to download "DVESetup_EN_3201" file (size approx 83MB) and install it in your computer, this will solve your problem of ICD-SX25 Thanks.
Put in the installation disk. Open the set up file. Then open the DVE folder. Then right click on the setup file with the logo and run it as an admin. This takes about five minutes and the computer will do an auto shut off. Then you should be up and running.
I have the same issue with this recorder and Vista. According to Sony, the new version should be available for download "sometime this month" so I'm holding my breath.
There is a way to get your files onto your computer, but it is pretty annoying when you have a bunch. But it works, so here it is.
Select the specific recording that you want to save, then click the "email" button. If you use Outlook like me, an email window will open up and your selected file will be attached. YOu can then save it from the outlook email window without even actually sending it.
Once it is saved on your computer, the DVE commands that allow you to convert the file do work, so have a ball!
This sure does suck, no?
