I have the above recorder which is Model VN-5000.  There are connections on the top of the reorder for a Mike, a built in mike,  and ear phone.  I have made a recording, but there are no outlets I can see where I can transfer to the pc.  Hope the experts please let me know whether the recording can be transferred to a pc or not.  Thank u.

Sorry jegajothy. This version does not have that ability. Here is the same question posted in a forum.

Usually the recorders with this ability have a mini usb connection on them.

Use one of these leads between the earphone output on the recorder and the Line Input on the PC.
You could use a program such as Audacity to make the recording.

This is for a standard 3.5mm earphone jack. Some devices have 2.5mm jacks, so check first.

You could use one of these to transfer to a HiFi (use the auxiliary input if it is available)
