Question about Olympus DS-30 Digital Voice Recorder

Unable to download files onto DSS Player on the PC

Hi,

I recently got a new computer so I reloaded the software onto my new computer using the original software. I thought I uploaded it fine. It's installed and I can see the program, but when I plug in my recorder and try to download the files it won't let me click on 'download folder A,B,C, etc or download all." As if there is nothing to download, but I have files on my recorder and I can listen to them through the recorder. So, what should I do?

If anyone has an answer for any of this, I really really really appreciate it. It's hard to keep up in class without these files.

Thanks.

Voice Recorder-Files to CD?


Please follow the below solutions to create either an audio CD-ROM of .wav files or back-up
.wav files to a CD-ROM.
Problem: .Wav files downloaded to PC computer from the DW-90, VN Series, and DSS Files
created with DS Series recorders cannot be copied to a rewritable CD-ROM using Windows
Media Player to create an audio CD-ROM.
Explanation: These digital voice recorders create .wav files at 8kHZ, 12kHZ, or 22kHz
depending on the Quality setting. Digital Wave player software is used to download Wav files to
a PC computer from the DW or VN Series of recorders. DSS Player is used to download DSS
files from the DS Series recorders and convert them to Wav files. If Windows Media Player is
then used to copy the files to a rewritable CD-ROM to create an audio CD-ROM, the files will
not copy properly or an error message may appear. Windows Media Player can only create an
audio CD-ROM if the .wav file is 44.1kHZ, 16 bit stereo.
Solution: Follow the procedure below to convert the .wav files to 44.1 kHZ, 16 bit stereo. Then
use Windows Media Player to copy the files to a rewritable CD-ROM.
1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, click Entertainment, and then click Sound Recorder.
2. On the File menu, click Open.
3. In the Open dialog box, specify the name of the audio file that you want to convert, and
then click OK. Files are usually located at C:\Program Files\Olympus\Digital Wave
Player\Message\Folder A.
4. On the File menu, click Save As.
In the Save As dialog box, click Change.
In the Attributes box, click 44.100 kHz, 16 Bit, Stereo, and then click OK.
Click Save. After you convert your files, try to copy them to a CD-ROM again.

I am trying to transfer files from my Hotmail account to Olympus


If they are files that someone has emailed to you, they need to first be saved in your C drive somewhere and then you can import them to the DSS software to be able to play them. They cannot be imported directly as an email attachment.

Converting wma files to wav files on olympus DDS player version 7


When using the DSS Player v7 software the program is unable to convert WMA to WAV. The option you see there only works when it is a .dss file that needs to be converted to .wav. In order to convert WMA to WAV you will need to locate a third party software program that does this type of conversion.

Go to google and search on WMA to WAV conversion editors.

Convert ds2 file to dss


Best option is to get the person using the recorder which creates the .ds2 files, which is likely to be an Olympus DS-5000, to set the recorder to record audio in "classic mode" which will produce .dss files. Here is a YouTube video on how to set the DS-5000 to record in classic mode.

Cannot convert WMA to WAV files


The DSSPlayer software will not allow you to convert the WMA files to WAV. The recorder on SP uses .DSS as the file type and that file can be converted to WAV using DSS Player. Olympus released DSS Player 7 for VISTA and you will have to have it before the pair will work normally.
