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.
