I had this same problem with my vn 4100 olympus digital recorder. I learn from someone else on this site that you could just hold the display/menu buttton and the stop button at the same time for about 2-3 seconds. the FOR display comes on and all you have to do is wait a couple of minutes and your recorder is working again. Just keep in mind that all previous recorder will no long be there. they will be deleted.

I downloaded a manual - previous version lost in a crash - and sorted it out with that
It wasn't the timer but the settings on "alarm playback function"

buy another voice recorder, my dad has had me scouraging the net for a vista driver, the drivers dont work so it looks like its the good old bin for the recorder. dont get me wrong the recording quality is excellent, just olympus have really screwed 1000's of people over this time and i dont think many of those will trust olympus with anything other than a standard film camera.
they should stick to what they know and keep out of the digital genre.

nuff said.

you could always trade it in at a Cash trading shop and get some money for another make if that helps !

You need to loacte the files on the unit and get them to your hard drive via the transfer function. Once on your machine use any cd (like Nero) creating program to back them up to a black cd. You have to make sure your computer has a cd burner.

maybe, you got those wav. files copy controlled. check out the relevant preferences from the voice recorder menus. if this solution doesn't work, simply convert the files into mp3, then convert them into wav. again. I hope this could help..

The headphones may have a defective connection or failed completely.

I suggest you attempt to reset the device which should bring back default settings. If you wish to do a reset, go to Device Menu, go to Reset Settings, click + to select start then click OK.

• Windows: The voice recorder is recognized and displayed in the [My Computer] folder with the model name as the drive name. If there is a microSD card in the voice recorder, it can be used as the [Removable Disk].• Macintosh: The voice recorder is recognized and displayed on the desktop with the model name as the drive name. If there is a microSD card in the voice recorder, [NO NAME] is displayed. • For information on the PC's USB port, see the PC's user manual. • Use the optional USB extension cable (KP19) if needed
