Question about Olympus Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a DSS Player 2002. I just bought a RS 27 Foot Control switch. I've plugged it into the port but can't seem to get it to activate. I've even taken my computer and the switch to a computer shop and they couldn't get it to activate. The only thing they told me was I could buy a PC Transcription kit (AS-2300) to enable it to work. But a few years ago I borrowed a foot switch and it worked on my computer without any extra software. I have a window XP computer. I would apprecitate any help you can give me.

    The DSS player is a voice recorder. After I put the recorded invormaition into the program, I want to listen to it and then trascribe it. So a foot switch is a must for this. On this DSS software there is a footswitch that is shown from the tools menu. But not highlighted.

The software does require a special software key in order for the footswitch to work. Also the footswitch must be plugged in before the software is installed. if this is the case...uninstall and reinstall the software with footpedal attached

I installed Olympus DSS player (version 6.3) on my HP with windows vista home premium OS. The DSS player works fine, but I am not able to use the corresponding RS25 foot pedal with it. Please help!


Possibly you just need a footswitch driver. Here's a download for one:
http://user-guides.co.uk/download/olympus/olympusrs/olympus-rs-28-footswitch-driver.html
If you find a version 7.1 upgrade, be cautious about it, since I read that it often causes problems (google Olympus DSS version 7.1 upgrade and read about it).
Hopefully the driver will get you going.
Good luck, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.

RS-25 & RS-27 Foot Pedal not working with Vista x64


I had the exact same problem. Per Olympus you have to buy the RS 27 foot pedal. It IS compatible with Vista 64bit. RS 25 which is what I have IS NOT compatible with Vista 64bit.
Cheapest I found online is $43+ shipping for RS 27 foot pedal.
There is a free upgrade to DSS Player 7 on Olympus website that you will have to do for it to work with RS 27 foot pedal.

I have installed Oympus DSS player for transcription purposes.


Check whether your foot pedal is a RS-26 or RS-28, and the DSS Player version. For some strange reason the DSS v5 is not backward compatible with the RS-26 foot pedals, and so you would need to purchase a RS-28.
I hope this hepls!

RS-25 foot pedal not working


The foot pedal needs to be plugged in before the software is installed. Just uninstall the software (your files will be fine) and reinstall with foot pedal attached.

Olympus AS-2300


The new DS-5000 SW has still got some quirks. The RS-25 is no longer available and I too have had issues with the 27. If your PC has a serial port try the serial plug, I know it is a step backwards but it has worked for me several times. Hope this helps. For now I steer clear of the DS-5000's.

Foot switch will not respond.


The answer is all in the serial number you use to install the DSS player!

Look carefully and you will see the recorder disk has in my case an [E] printed above the install serial number and the transcription pedal has [T]

Install the same disk with the E the driver is there, the control in Control Panel is there, but the foot switch does not work with the software. Put in the serial number with the [T] and foot switch works first time!

If you uninstall the play and then reinstall with the [T] serial number you do not need to reboot or even unplug the foot switch from the USB.

Bingo
