Exclamation DRIVER NEEDED: Olympus VN-3100 PC DIGITAL VOICE RECORDER (Windows XP Home) [USB]

PLEASE HELP!!! When I initialized my computer I deleted the digital voice recorder program, and I even lost my software CD-ROM that came with the recording device too! I checked the Olympus website and it says it costs about $20 to get the replacement software (https://emporium.olympus.com/innards/empProdDetails.asp?sku=149320-410)! I don't want to spend that much money on that, but I need to be able to use my recorder ASAP because my school has already started and I am recording lots of lectures! Does anyone have a link to the website where I can download without paying money the exact copy of the replacement software?? I'm desperate!!! Thanks!!!

Support Information:
Device Type: Removable drive
Manufacturer: Olympus
Model: VN-3100 PC DIGITAL VOICE RECORDER

You'll be extremely fortunate to get anyone to upload their disk but good luck!

Olympus has never been very strong on support....that's why I don't own any of their products.

You can see everything the manufacturer has for this device here: (and believe me when I say it isn't much).
Also, the only reason you shouldn't buy this model in particular would again be the lack of USB support from the manufacturer. It's also good to know you can transfer whatever audio you want to keep to a cassette recorder by purchasing an inexpensive cord (under $4) that goes into the ear jack on the digital to the mic jack on a cassette recorder.

And the European website has no driver posted for this product: [url]http://www.olympus-europa.com/consumer/2590_software.cfm?category=5&productgroup=0&produc t=421&os=7&result=[/url]



I found this info while looking for drivers... perhaps it will help someone who gets the ERR or CHK message in the display:

Digital Wave Player (2.1): is available via download as a courtesy, please follow the instructions below:

[url]http://www.olympusamerica.com/files/DigitalWavePlayer.zip[/url]

After unzipping the file, click on the SETUP.EXE file to begin installation.

Download update: [url]http://olympusamerica.com/files/DWPUP2EN.zip[/url]

Download update 2.1.3: [url]http://olympusamerica.com/files/DWPUP4EN.zip[/url]

-------------------------------------------------------------------

You can find the software and drivers here: [url]http://downloads.olympus-europa.com/consumer/VoiceRecorder/720/eng_2000_xp.zip[/url]

Link was found here: [url]http://www.olympus.fr/consumer/2590_software.cfm?category=0&productgroup=347&prod uct=421&os=10&result=[/url]

-------------------------------------------------------------------

[url]http://www.olympusamerica.com/files/DigitalWavePlayerUpdate214.zip[/url]

This is the software for the PC versions

"This download updates the Digital Wave Player software bundled with Olympus VN-*PC series digital
voice recorders from version 2.1.1 to 2.1.4. It enables Digital Wave Player versions 2.0 and later
to run on Windows Vista systems, including those that use AMD Turion(TM) or Intel Core2 Duo processors.
It also resolves the issue of sorting audio files by date on the VN-2100PC and VN-3100PC digital
voice recorders. This download contains only an update program. The full application must be installed
prior to running the update. The CD-ROM for Digital Wave Player is available on the Olympus Store."

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If the display shows ERR or CHK, follow these instructions to return it to normal:

Unscrew the faceplate. (Three screws. One is under the batteries).

Put the batteries back on.

Have the HOLD button on the normal position (down)

Press and hold the MENU/FOLDER button together with the STOP button

Press and hold the MENU/FOLDER button together with the DISPLAY button

You will see a GREEN light, then a RED light then a "FOR" message will appear

Press the DISPLAY button and after a few moments it will reset and ask you to enter the time.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If either 'err' or 'chk' appears in the display.
Sometimes the recorders will give you one message, then the other, or will simply give you one message
either on constant display or blinking. I believe you can 'reset' any of the Olympus digital recorders
by a combination of holding down two of the front keys. I sat for a half an hour & then suddenly one of
the combinations worked. You can try the 'stop' key & the 'erase' key or the 'stop' key & the '-' (slash)
key or any other two keys on the front. I have no guarantees that all your data will or will not be
erased ! When I got the blinking 'chk' message on 11-4-08, I believe I pushed & held both the 'stop' & the
'-' keys. Try ALL combinations of all the keys if those don't work. Don't give up !

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I had the same problem with my Olympus VN-5000. I found a simple solution, which appears to reformat the
memory (ERR means memory error). Press the STOP and DISP/MENU buttons at the same time for about 2 seconds,
and then the display should show "FOR". It will supposedly erase the whole memory, but will at least make
the device usable again. There is no need to take the device apart!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a tricky problem but I finally took care of it.

1. Ditch your old batteries.
2. Get new batteries. Do not replace the batteries yet.
3. Connect your recorder to your PC with Wave Recorder installed. The message should change from "CHK" to "PC".
4. Put new batteries in the device.
5. Hurray, you're done !

Olympus is evil for not providing this for free. I have made an ISO image of my CD (containing software and driver both) and uploaded to the following link:

Hope this helps people out there
