Question about Olympus DS-2300 Digital Voice Recorder

1 Answer

Can't get the software to detect the device

Hi,

My olympus DS-2300 seems to be plugging into the computer okay, and when I check the properties in the device manager, all indications are that everything is fine. but the Olympus software won't detect the recorder. I have windows XP professional edition version 5.1 (service pack 2) and I heard that there is a compatibility problem...any advice?

    You were right on...it was assigned to a drive that was already in use as a shared data drive. When I reassigned it to another drive, it solved the problem.



    Many thanks!

Should be no compatibility problem.. not with xp... but you can check two different things... first check the "safely remove hardware" icon usually beside the time in the system tray. when you click on it once, it should say safely remove usb mass storage device drive *: (star representing drive letter), if no letter comes up then no drive letter is assigned and will have to go thru drive letter assignment.

the next thing would be in device manager in system properties... it should be recognized as usb mass storage device and disappear if you unplug your device. if not then the driver may need updating through microsoft

i would call Oly tech support so they can walk you thru the getting your device to work properly

I own an Olympus DS-4000 and the software it comes with is not recognizing (detecting) the device upon connecting it through the cradle or directly from the device to my computer using the OEM transfer...


Olympus uses a Device detector utility to detect the recorder. Some other applications can keep the recorder from being detected. Check for Adobe Download manager running in the tray. If it is, disable and it may work. Some printer controle managers also can cause this not to work.

Also, check if the recorder is listed as a removable drive under My Computer.

Recognition of recorder


Does the computer recognize the Olympus DS-30 being connected to it at all? If not, do you happen to have another USB cable that you could try using? Either way, you should try connecting it to a different USB port on your computer, as you might have happened to connect it to one that doesn't work.

DS-2300 recorder and DSS player transcription system


try reinstalling the software. And as for the foot pedals, take a good look at them and see if anything's wrong. If you don't find anything then plug it in and out a couple of times and make sure it's snug. For the phone, i suggest you buy a telerecorder. There about 5.35 and you plug into the microphone jack of your recorder and make sure to press record before each conversation on the phone. So far, that's all i can muster up.

Download device


The easiest way to correct that is to uninstall and reinstall the DSS player software. Before you go so far though, open DSS Player and go to Tools then Options and make sure the Auto download option is checked. If the option is checked but not working just uninstall and reinstall to reset the drive associations.

Is it possible to stop recording without opening a new file?


you can not do this with the Olympus ws-100, you need a dictation machine that has the editing function which allows you to easily insert, overwrite, partially erase files and continue on the same file, most of the digital dictation units have NEW FILE BUTTON , you will stay recording on the same file till you press new.
Look at Olympus DS-2300. Olympus DS-33300 or ds-4000.

Accidental erasing


Check all folders on the recorder. Sometimes dictation inadvertently goes into another folder. Also; if the recorder is disconnected from the computer too soon after the expected amt of time it takes to upload to computer, the files may become lost (in space?) This has happened to my physicians in the past. Must leave the recorder connected to the uploading doc until you are certain files have been uploaded. Best to bring up the Olympus download folder to be certain.
