There are many steps in installing Digital Wave Player on VISTA, it is important to follow every step since installing Digital Wave Player on VISTA is dependent on this process.

5. Restart the computer.
6. Plug in the VN recorder to the USB port and turn the recorder on.
"Found new hardware" will appear,
7. install automatically.
This may fail, if you see VNUSB device, skip the final steps and proceed to Digital Wave Player to Download files from the Digital Voice Recorder.
If you will see "Other devices" listed in Device manager with "digital voice recorder" underneath it.
8. Right click on the "digital voice recorder"
9. Select update driver from the pop up menu.

SOURCE: Olympus DSS Player Pro Woes!

There is a small utility called dssclean, which can fix these files for you. Check with your Olympus Pro dealer, as they should be able to provide that for you.
Files usually get this way when a computer or the Transcription Module crashed while a file is open. The system doesn't get a chance to close the file and it remains in "typing mode."
The other, more readily available work around, is to select the file in the Transcription Module, then go to File > Convert File and convert it to a WAV file (it actually only makes a copy of the file). You can then transcribe the WAV file and delete the locked file.

Download Files


Hi, I had this problem using a Olympus DS-2300 recorder. I installed the DSS Player Software on my PC and when I tried to download the files from my device to the PC I had this problem.

You will need to check the location of a file called DSSjobNo.dat. The application I think tries to copy this file into the default location for the Download folder, usually somewhere in your My Documents. If it can't copy the file there for some reason then that will stuff things up.

To check where the application is expecting the file you will need to check a value in the registry. This maybe a little tricky so get someone who knows there way around the registry to help you. The location of the entry is HKCU\Software\Olympus\DSSPlayer2002\Dictation Module\download\InstallSetting The value is JobNoFilePath and will hold the path to where the application is expecting the dssjobno.dat file.

Armed with this knowledge you can then check if the dssjobNo.dat file is in that location. If not copy the file from C:\program Files\olympus\DssPlayer (this is where I found the file on my PC) to the location the registry entry specified.

Or if you know what you are doing you can change the reg entry to go to the location you want the file to be in. Useful in my case as I wanted the download path for my files to be on a shared folder on the network and I wanted to keep it all together.

Hope this helps!
