    My recorder is VN-2000PC. I read your explanation but I find it so difficult! Why aren't there specific drivers for this recorder as for the others? It does have a USB conection!

  • Cindy Wells Sep 03, 2012

    When I look at the US support list of Olympus Digital Voice recorders, the VN-2000PC isn't listed. The driver for the VN-2100PC may work for your model. Further research gave me that this was an OEM model sold in parts of Europe but not supported by Olympus. That's why the driver isn't listed. None of the stores that sold the VN-2000PC list any support for it either. My solution works for connecting any player (except some LP turntables that do not have a pre-amplifier) to a computer to transfer audio files. Cindy Wells

Do you need the software/drivers for the VN-2000PC or the VN-2100PC? The software for the VN-2100PC is available here: http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_support_downloads.asp?id=1270 . Select your OS and you'll find the software.

The VN-2000PC doesn't connect to the computer via a USB port. To transfer your files to a computer, connect the earphone jack to the line In (blue) jack of the computer with a 3.5mm to 3.5 mm audio patch cable. Use a program like Audacity to record the audio track during playback. Make sure to set the Audio input to Line In. (In Windows 7, click Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound. Under Sound, click Manage Audio Devices. Then select the Recording tab and set the input device.) Then set the recording device in the software as well. Click the Record button in the software and then start the play back on your VN-2000PC. You should see a flat line for a bit then see a wave form start. If the line stays flat, you haven't set the Line In device properly.

I hope this helps.

This problem can typically be solved by unplugging the device from your computer's USB port and plugging it in to another USB port on the same computer.

Also be sure you have Olympus Digital Wave Player installed and open with your Transfer Options set to Auto Transfer. To do this, follow the steps below:

Open Digital Wave Player > select Transfer from the menu > select Transfer Options > under Auto Transfer, check the box which reads "Transfer all audio files after detecting Recorder."

I recorded meeting minutes to my digital OLYMPUS VN-480 PC voice recorder and want to transfer the recording on it to my Dell Inspirion/1100 laptop. Could I transfer the audio from the headphone jack to...


Hello,

yes, it is possible. You will connect the earphone jack from your voice recorder to Mic of your laptop. Then you will be needing a wave software on your laptop, download the wave software from the internet, open the wave file, then press play on your voice recorder and the minutes will be recorded into your laptop as a wave files.

But the easiest method of tranferring the minutes is by using the usb cable of your OLYMPUS VN-480 PC voice recorder. If you don't have it you can purchase it, then connect it from your OLYMPUS VN-480 PC voice recorder to the usb of your computer and it will be read like a flash drive.

After that, go to my computer and you will see a drive representing the OLYMPUS VN-480 PC voice recorder, open the drive and you will see your minutes, then simply create a folder on your computer, and copy, paste the minutes into the created folder. And the would be all.

God luck.

Did you install the Olympus software? If not, go to my computer and look for a removable disc drive. Browse that drive to copy your files.
