Olympus DS-5000 pro software issue

Do you know if I get the Olympus PRO 5 software, can I set the DS-2400 Dictations devices to record in classic mode? I have hundreds of these units dictating in DS2 format that I would love to record in classic mode?

    I have a DS-2400 and I'm looking for a way to have it automatically convert the ds2 format to a dss format upon download. I saw a post on Jan 09, 2009 that said "I purchased the DS-2400 software and Bingo ! it did download files in the DSS format." What software are they refering to? I have the DSS Player Standard release 1.0 that came with it and that doesn't do it automatically. I need software that will work with the DS-2300 & the DS-2400. Obviously I only need to convert the files from the 2400 but we have a mixed enviroment here. Any help is much appreciated!

The Olympus DS-3400 and Olympus DS-5000 both transcribe in both DSS Pro and DSS Classic. Video instructions for changing the recording mode of the DS-3400 and DS-5000 can be found here.

The Olympus DS-2400 digital voice recorder, however, only transcribes in DSS Pro unless a special firmware update is applied. For more information about the firmware update, contact PCDictate.com,

Another solution is to buy a software program named DSS File converter that converts DSS Pro files to DSS Classic files. You can download a free trial by clicking here.

"...with the pro software, you can set it to automatically convert to dss upon download."

Please elaborate, many talk about it but none actually say how to specifically with the DS-2400.

No, there is no way to change the record format to dss classic. However, with the pro software, you can set it to automatically convert to dss upon download.

I have just installed the software for an Olympus DS 2400 and cannot get the foot pedal to work.


The player standard software that comes with your DS 2400 does not support the Olympus wav pedal (RS 27). You need the transcription version of software, the AS 2400 transcription kit (169.95) or, just the software, Player Standard T (99.95).

Olympus ds-2400 voice recorder is saving files as ds2 - how do we convert them to dss


The DS-2400 were one of the first Olympus DVRs to use the new DSS Pro (.ds2) format.

We later discovered that you will need to update the firmware to in order to have it revert to the standard DSS format (.dss)

You will need the DS-2400_FirmwareUpdate_DssClassic to make this happen. All certified dealers will have access to this firmware update.

Stay classy,

DSS Player Pro v 5 won't load - says Exit Device Detector for Player Pro.


I've seen this problem a few times on various operating systems. The problem was a result of a conflicting application running during installation. In my last scenario, F.T.R (For the Record) was causing this error to appear. Upon exiting the FTP process in the Task Manager, I was able to install the Olympus DSS Player Pro Release 5.0.9 with no problem.

We are experiencing issues within the AS-5000 transcription software for our Olympus DS-5000 recorders. When a typist selects the status of the file (''pending'', ''finished'', etc.) an error message pops...


This is a know issue of the initial releases of DSS Pro 5. Downloading the update (using the Update option inside the software) will not really fix it, but will at least give you an option to override the Locked status. This "fix" appears from update 5.0.5

Is it possible to rewind and overwrite dictation with Olympus VN-2100PC


Unfortunately with this device the VN-2100PC it is not possible to rewind and overwrite any dictations that were done. Each time the record button is pressed and then the stop button is pressed it will create a new file. They may want to look for a DS-2300 or a DS-2400 recorder as these devices have the ability to rewind and allow you to dictate over previously recorded information in the same file. There is a button on these devices called "New" that allows you to stay within the same file until you press New to start the next audio file.

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.

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.
