I just bought a new Dell with Vista and now my foot pedal does not work. Is there software or something I need to do for it to work on Vista?

    I was told by Olympus that the RS25 is not compatible with Vista and that I should order the RS27. Even with RS27, my computer, a Dell XPS 630I, still does not recognize it. Tomorrow, I'll call Olympus and ask them to walk me through it.

    My RS25 has died. I have the RS27 and I cannot get it to work on my Dell with XP. I am using the DSS Player 2002. How can I make this pedal work? Will I have to reinstall the DSS Player?

The RS25 is compatible. The problem is the driver is not installed automatically. It can be found in the tools folder on the CD.

My Olympus RS25 foot switch stopped working.


Yes, you can assume that after 6+ years, the pedals have gone bad and you need new ones.

How to run AS-2300 software on Windows 7 Premium edition 64 Bit. Includes also foot padle.


The AS2300 foot pedal RS23 or RS25 are not compatible with 64 bit operating systems. You will need an RS27 pedal, available at http://www.dictationmall.com/147-035.html

Also the software is not supported on windows 7. You can get a free upgrade to the latest version, dss player standard, here. http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/software_results.asp?id=1219&os=w

If you have version 6, you need to upgrade to version 7 first. Once at version 7, you can then upgrade to player Standard.

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.

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-2000 Dictation Kit - Foot switch doesn't work on Vista


HTML clipboard Olympus AS-2000 is not Vista compatible, you need to upgrade your software, I am not sure which version you have, but I think its version 6 ? You need to upgrade your software from version 6 to 7 (free) and then from version 7 to Standard (also free ) . check your foot pedal if it's RS-23 ( check the back of it ) then you need a new foot pedal ( RS-25 or RS-27 ) , if you have the RS-25 or RS27 you are ok .

Foot pedal


Make sure you are installing the Transcription version of the software not the Dictation version (Transcription version serial number starts with RTM and dictation starts with RDM). The foot pedal will not work with the dictation version of the software.

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
