Probably, can you give me a model number? Are you using this with Windows 7 or Windows 8? Windows 10 generally does not have significant compatibility issues as long as the device has been working on Windows 7 or 8 which were the last major architectural changes to WindowsLet me know if that helps,Dan

I would recommend taking these steps to get it working for Windows 7 as Window 10:See this article hereBasically you will need to:1) Install the original Digital Wave Player software (Olympus link | local mirror)Installing the original software will not get your device working, but it provides the baseline for the updates that you downloaded.2) Install the Digital Wave Player update (Olympus link | local mirror)This will make a green and gray digital recorder icon appear in your System Tray. (32-bit Windows users stop here.)3) Install the 64-bit Windows drivers (Olympus link | local mirror)After you’ve completed this step, you should be able to connect your device and transfer the audio files to your computer.Let me know if that helps,Dan
