You can buy the disk but there is a download. DSS Player (version 7.0): is available via download as a courtesy, please follow the instructions below:
After unzipping the file, click on the SETUP.EXE file to begin installation.
Download update 7.1:
Serial #:(8360-0101-0027-7420-4735 )

SOURCE: can't get the software to detect the device

should be no compatibility problem.. not with xp... but you can check two different things... first check the "safely remove hardware" icon usually beside the time in the system tray. when you click on it once, it should say safely remove usb mass storage device drive *: (star representing drive letter), if no letter comes up then no drive letter is assigned and will have to go thru drive letter assignment.

the next thing would be in device manager in system properties... it should be recognized as usb mass storage device and disappear if you unplug your device. if not then the driver may need updating through microsoft

i would call Oly tech support so they can walk you thru the getting your device to work properly

SOURCE: converting wma files to wav files on olympus DDS player version 7

When using the DSS Player v7 software the program is unable to convert WMA to WAV. The option you see there only works when it is a .dss file that needs to be converted to .wav. In order to convert WMA to WAV you will need to locate a third party software program that does this type of conversion.

Go to google and search on WMA to WAV conversion editors.

SOURCE: no olympus digital recorder vn2100pc vista 64 bit driver

This is because this device will never be compatible with a 64 bit VISTA OS. Olympus now has a VN-3200PC or VN-5200PC that are compatible with the 64 bit VISTA OS platform.

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-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
