Driver mac sony icd p520

Sony does not make available any software or drivers for this item on the Mac. That's not an issue at all! Just connect it up to the Mac with a USB cable and it should show up right on your desktop. If you need to edit the audio files store on the recorder, you can use GarageBand or Audacity.

I am trying to trasfer a large amount of files from my macbook to a dell laptop. The mac will recognize the drive and i am able to backup and save files onto it, however when i plug the drive into the...

The problem most likely is the Dell does not recognize the MAC file format (HPFS), but the MAC will recognize the PC's FAT 32 file system.
First format the USB mass storage device using the Dell, format this device in FAT 32 not in NTFS because the MAC can read and write/copy PC format files but the Dell/PC cannot read MAC format files.
Then Safely remove this device, connect it to the MAC and copy the files onto this drive. When you connect this device to the Dell, you will be able to see the files.
Have fun.

I just plugged in the new drive. It won't open.

from the manual :

Troubleshooting
page 26 LaCie Slim DVD±RW USB 2.0 Drive User’s Manual
The Issue
The drive is not
recognized.
Questions to Ask
Is the drive’s power on?
Does an icon for the drive appear
on the computer (On a Mac a CDROM
must be inserted in the drive)?
Are all of the cables connected
securely and correctly?
Are both ends of the USB 2.0 cable
connected and properly seated?
Possible Solutions
Check to see that all of the power cords are properly
connected and that the switch on the rear of the drive is
turned on. If you are using a surge protector, make sure that
it is switched on, too.
Check for an icon on the Desktop (on a Mac) or in My
Computer (on a PC).
Make sure that all the steps in section 2. Getting Connected
have been followed correctly. Examine the connections
carefully to ensure that all the cables are inserted in the
correct orientation and in the correct location.
Check both ends of the USB 2.0 cable. Disconnect them, wait
10 seconds, and reconnect them. If the drive is still not
recognized, restart your computer and try again.
The Issue
The drive is not
recognized.
Questions to Ask
Is there a conflict with other device
drivers or extensions?
Possible Solutions
Mac OS 9.x Users: If your LaCie drive is not being
recognized by the recording software, you may be
experiencing an extension conflict between the software and
iTunes or Disc Burner. There are two possible solutions to this
problem.
If you do not plan on using iTunes or Disc Burner, follow these
steps:
1) From the Apple Menu, go to Control Panels and open the
Extensions Manager.
2) Scroll down to the Extensions folder and disable (uncheck)
the USB Authoring Support and the FireWire Authoring
Support.
3) Click on the Restart button to restart your computer.
4) Launch the recording software again, and check to see if it
recognizes the drive now.
If you plan on using both the recording software and iTunes
or Disc Burner, you may want to create a separate Extension
Set for the recording software.
1) From the Apple Menu, go to Control Panels and open the
Extensions Manager.
2) Press the Duplicate Set button.
3) Give the new Extension set a name, such as Writing.
4) Scroll down to the Extensions folder, and disable (uncheck)
the USB Authoring Support and the FireWire Authoring
Support.
5) Click on the Restart button to restart your computer.
Now when you want to use this set, simply go back into
Extensions Manager, and from the pull-down menu from
Selected Sets:, choose your new Extension set.

WD WD1200B008-RNN not recognized by laptop/desktop

I had a similar problem with some other brand of external drive. I disconnected it without being stopped and then nothing would recognize it. It was new when this happened, I contacted the manufacturer and they sent me a files with software and instructions to recover it. It was not that easy since I'm no computer geek, it took quite a while but finally the drive worked again. Info was lost since I had to formated it, can't remember exactly is low level formatting but alive again.
Also try to go to my computer icon on the desktop and right click, go to "manage" there you'll see an option for disk management, there you might be lucky and make it work again.
Hope this helps, regards.

Icon doesn't show up in my computer section so I am unable click on and access my files, however the computer a compaq presario laptop does recognize the hard drive, I just can't access anything its...

This wild mean the file system of the hard drive is set as something other than NTFS or FAT/FAT32. Mac and Linux would be able to read it just fine but due to the limitations of Windows, it wouldn't recognize the file system.
Google the program ext2read. It will enable reading of another file system in Windows.

Is there a way at least Mac recognizes VN-3100PC?

Unfortunately the VN-3100PC is not compatible to a MAC operating system. The device needs drivers in order to be detected by the computer and we do not have any MAC compliant drivers for the device. It was designed to work in a Windows environment only.
