Question about Olympus DS-2300 Digital Voice Recorder
Have been trying to help friend setup her olympus digital voice recorder; software via disk works fine but both her desktop and laptop (both Vista) do not recognise the device when we plug in via USB port. Have been unable to find solution on-line. Can you help? Thanks
Olympus has provided new software for VN recorders to used with VISTA plus a few updates.
Uninstall the Digital Wave Player
Uninstall the recorder in device manager
Download and install the New digital wave player,
then go to Olympus america and download all VISTA related updates. Once you have installed and updated the Digital Wave Player software, plug in the recorder and Windows will use the Olympus Driver (not digitally signed) to install and the Digital Wave player software will open automatically.

Read somewhere that users who uploaded the latest Vist patch had success.

I have this problem too. I can get it to work by installing the Olympus Digital Wave Player which I downloaded from the olympus site but I still get errors which I just ignore. It would be nice to have it working with no errors.
The software that came with the ds-2 is just not VISTA compatable. I can not even read the help files. I suspect the Wave Player is meant to be quick fix for all their systems that are not compatible with VISTA. It probably should be used on its own and I should uninstall the original piece of software but their web site gave no clear instructions. I only downloaded Wave Player out of curiousity.
