Need to recover deleted voice recording

I accidently deleted the wrong file on my Olympus VN-4100PC recorder.  I tried 3 different recovery tools but all are looking for a mounted device.  The Olympus doesn't mount, you connect it via the USB and the Olympus software opens.  

Anyone have any suggestions on how to recover my file????

Unfortunately, most software look for a drive.  PCInspector http://download.cnet.com/PC-Inspector-File-Recovery/3000-2248_4-10118663.html is good at recovering files from USB sticks, so give it a try.  There is also GetDataBack http://www.runtime.org and Recuva http://www.piriform.com/recuva.

I'm afraid none of them worked.  All want to have a drive letter associated with them.

Unfortunately, the best data recovery software assumes the device is a hard drive or similar storage medium.  If it has a proprietary interface, as this one seems to have, you can only use what the vendor provides.  Does Olympus have any suggestions?

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Was not able to get the recording off the recorder because I could not get it recognized as a drive by any software.  I had to chuck it!
