Question about Olympus DS-50 Digital Voice Recorder

1 Answer

Olympus DS-50 While listening to my DS-50 my batteries ran out and I changed them. I did install backwards the first time, but fixed that and all was well. But now, for the first time ever, when I connect via USB the device is not detected. It just blinks "Please Wait" forever. I've rebooted the computer and also checked that the Device Detector software is present.

Olympus Voice Recorder says only 6 hours time when it's empty


Hello
The recorder should be formatted only by using the internal FORMAT function found in the Menu. Formatting using the computer may corrupt system files needed to run the recorder and may delete the Voice Guide Data and Audible system files, so computer formatting is not recommended. When the recorder is connected to a computer, individual files can be deleted using My Computer without negative effects.after you format the unit this is how needs t
be depends on your selection for Audio quality
STEREO XQ mode: 17 hours 30 minutes
STEREO HQ mode: 35 hours 10 minutes
HQ mode: 70 hours 20 minutes
SP mode: 138 hours 30 minutes
LP mode: 275 hours 20 minutes

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

I have installed Oympus DSS player for transcription purposes.


Check whether your foot pedal is a RS-26 or RS-28, and the DSS Player version. For some strange reason the DSS v5 is not backward compatible with the RS-26 foot pedals, and so you would need to purchase a RS-28.
I hope this hepls!

Can no longer download files to my Olympus DSS software


This has happened to me often. I have had to remove the DS-50 using the safely remove hardware button and then reconnect. Usually, that fixes it. I am talking about downloading podcasts here.

I myself now face the problem that the device is not sensed by the computer. I'm waiting for Olympus support to reply to my email.
