Question about Olympus DS-4000 Digital Voice Recorder

1 Answer

How do I get Olympus DS-4000 to work on Win 8 64-bit

Just upgraded our computers and now have Win 8 64-bit. Olympus DSS Player Standard v2.0.0.0 installed and Device Detector 4.3.0.0 - but Windows just seems to see the DS-4000 as a USB drive. Do I need to install some drivers? If so, which and how? I've tried Device Manager, but it just tells me the most up-to-date drivers are installed - even if I manually ask it to search for new drivers and point it towards the Olympus software. Thanks

    OK - some progress, for anyone else who may have similar issues:

    Apparently, in their wisdom, Olympus changed their software with the Release 2 version of DSS Player Standard so that it will no longer work with what is considered a 'Pro' dictation device - ie a DS-4000 / DS-5000 etc.

    So, although I have a valid version of DSS Player Standard R2, I can no longer use it! Standard R1 still works with the DS-4000, but I understand that doesn't work with Windows 8 64-Bit.

    Very frustrating!!!

Do you have programs files (86) in your PC "C" drive menu menu? If yes that;s where yiou should install the software. That's because it;'s a 32 bit on a 64 bit.

The DS-3000 and the software is was shipped will not operate with Windows Vista. The software i suspect you have will DSS Player Pro Release 2 or 3. If you obtain a copy of DSS Player Pro Release 4 you will be able to use the DS-3000 on Windows Vista 32 bit or 64 bit without problem.

I lost original CD for DS-2; how to get software?


olympusamerica.com/files/dssplayer.zip is the download link for DSS player but you will have to call Olympus for a replacement key. I have found it works best to SAVE and then install the download. They did not give me a hard time about getting a new key.
