Olympus DS 4000

I have got a new computer, with a vista based operating system, and upgraded to Dragon naturally speaking 10.
However, in order to use my Olympus DS 4000, i need to have the software on the new computer. Unfortunately, in moving countries, i seem to have mislaid the discs to install.
Can you assist,

Kind regards,
Tom

Syncing Sony ICD-MX20 with Dragon Naturally Speaking 10 on Vista


the workaround seems to be

buy an Olympus recorder (supposedly they issued a patch for DNS 10 in a couple of days)

or

tell DNS that the source is a PDA generating WAV, MP3, etc.

havn't tried this myself yet. some say it it isn't that awful. But I too am very dissappointed.

Recently I purchased the Dragon Naturally Speaking 10. It works very well on straight dictation. However, I cannot seem to load my recordings from the Olympus VN-3100 PC unto the Dragon Speaking. Any...


There are several "flavours" of DNS 10, and only the Preferred and Professional versions will allow you to submit a pre-recorded sound for recognition (from the Sound menu). If you have a lower version such as the Standard, you will need to upgrade to at least Preferred.
I hope this helps

Olympus DS4000 recorder "new file" button broken


This is a classic: the 4-position-slide component (which includes the NEW button) is the weakness of the DS-4000. You need to get this replaced. If you are UK based, contact BES in Luton who will charge you circa GBP70 for the replacement.

Olympus DS-150


Judging from Olympus' website the device does appear to be MAC compliant as there are software downloads for the MAC system available for download. As far as voice to text goes, Olympus does not offer that option. Voice to text is done through a company called Nuance with a product called Dragon Naturally Speaking

Olympus Foot Pedal RS25


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

Editing? Can dictation be paused, then go back part way and....


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.

My ds-4000 crashes my computers


It's difficult for any techie to diagnose an occasional crash without seeing your computer at the time it crashes. Kind of like going to a doctor and saying "my leg hurt last month. Know why?" Also, you don't say what type of computer you have, PC or Mac.
That said, there are some "first steps" you should take, and, since you own a DS-4000, you should contact your Olympus dealer, since they're obligated to provide you with customer support (although it may not be free):
  1. May sure your software is up-to-date. Get the latest version to make sure you're not the victim of a bug. After you install the update, restart your computer for good measure.
  2. Turn off any applications or task bar tools that you're not using, particularly those that deal with cameras, scanners or memory cards. Adobe Photodownloader is a common culprit, as it interferes with the DS-4000, thinking it is a camera with a memory card.
  3. Update your Operating System. Always. Sometimes, the bugs are not with the Olympus equipment, but with Windows or MacOSX.
Good luck.
