How do I transfer Olympus VN5000 digital voice recoder to pc

by T5761 - 5/7/09 1:57 AM

As mentioned Olympus VN5000 digital voice recorder. has 4 fordlers a,b,c,d, saves large recodered memos meetings lectures etc up to 300 hours and saves these audio recoding as a wave format. I have computer windows xp media edition. Windows media player for videos msongs formate is WMA. I also have sony mp3 player.
What I would like to do 1 does wave format play on win xp be it the media libary. orsome other softwere. I tired it on win vioc audio player via with double ened jack , via 1 jack into vn olympus headset slot and jack 2 on the end of cord into pc mic slot played fine. problem max record play time on win xp voice audio player is 60 seconds.
My recordings on olympus can range from 5 min to 1 hour as the normal, but the olympus 5000 can record very very long recodings till point were only stop record when batt go dead.

So I read review were person that have the vn 5000 digtal voice recoder have downloaded the free Aducity ver 1.2.6 and claimed plays fine can save as wma or mp3 to computer pc and use win media libary or mp 3 play, my concen is these are use for music and vidoes. will it play large audio files . And can win xp media player convert or play the digtal voice recorder format save files as wave or can win xp ,ediad libary convert the wave formate to WMA formate and play my recodings for various time of small and large files? , if can play to win meida play as a wave file how do I do it after doing the hook up double end jack to pc then what. where will I locate the access of the digital record in My computer as a drive E? and what can I do with it from there . must I convert wave format or not, and if yes Which audacity version do I use and what is the intsrutions to acomplish this , Or from drive E can I open and copy paste each adiou file and paste file into my documents where I would create new folder audiou files and hopefully rename file as by subject. Again will it play as a wave file ? or does it need to be convert to WMA formate and which program will play this file stored in my doctuments.
I hope some of you have some suggestions for me. Especailly with CNET alone has many types downloadsI heard there is free step voice recoder ver 1.7 coukld not find and not sure format. Even if I can buy for 10 to 15.00 softwere or program to get the job done save my recodered adiou files to my laptop computer win xp . so keep as back up and can play any file and listen onpc and if a small file ac attach to e mail . And if lage file can burn to cd if one wants copy of my audio pulic meeting etc. Sure would be nice to save my audio files to pc as back up and be able to bame folders files of suject matter and bable to play at will on computer. Hope you folk have some ideas wht to get this dont and the spets intructions how what I need if anything Just as lon g tell me how to do it and it works , that would be nice, Thank you very much.
