Question about Olympus AS-2300 PC Transcription Kit
I have reinstalled the AS 2300 software twice now, version 7.3. The foot switch shows up in the control panel, but you cannot pull up the options within the DSS player. When you start a new file in the DSS player the foot switch does not respond.
Thanks for your help.
The answer is all in the serial number you use to install the DSS player!
Look carefully and you will see the recorder disk has in my case an [E] printed above the install serial number and the transcription pedal has [T]
Install the same disk with the E the driver is there, the control in Control Panel is there, but the foot switch does not work with the software. Put in the serial number with the [T] and foot switch works first time!
If you uninstall the play and then reinstall with the [T] serial number you do not need to reboot or even unplug the foot switch from the USB.

What tasharp said is correct, the [E] is the Dictation version of the Software will NOT Support the Foot Pedal , The [E] comes with Voice Recorders, DS series , the [ T ] Version is the Transcription version which is comes with the AS-2300 transcription Kit,
Both of them have the same exact CD , but different serial #'s .\

You can install any dss player pro 4, update to dss player 5 with the update on the olympus site.
if you are stuck on dictation modul with the given serial from the internet, where there is no transcription modul, cange the serial as said above in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Olympus\DSSPlayer2002\Dictation Module\UserInformation to a transription one with a T.
If the program doesnt start due to "wrong serial", go to windows >start>systemcontrol>programs> deinstall/repair/change, select change dss player, now enter the correct serial with a t, and the programm will add the transcription mode and partly reinstall. and it works. the ds-330 recorders work with dss player 7.X.X parallel on the computer on windows 7 as well.
all this crappy issue took me 3 hole days of my life!

The answer is indeed in the serial number. You can easaly change it by going into the registry and changing the serial in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Olympus\DSSPlayer2002\Dictation Module\UserInformation
Just start the software again after you have changed the serial ...
