Question about Olympus DS-50 Digital Voice Recorder

1 Answer

Can no longer download files to my Olympus DSS software

I have been using this DS-50 digital voice recorder for over year on a weekly, almost daily basis. I have always attached the voice recorder to my computer through the USB port, opened the DSS Player software. It senses the device as it shows up under "devices." I simply click on the download button at the top menu bar and download the files to each correspondending folder. Now, no matter what I do, when I click on the download button at the top of the menu bar All the folders are grayed out. I tried "download all" and I see "preparing for dowload" but the files are not downloaded as far as I can tell. What in tarnation am I doing different that this is not working. It is not rocket science. I don't get it!

This has happened to me often. I have had to remove the DS-50 using the safely remove hardware button and then reconnect. Usually, that fixes it. I am talking about downloading podcasts here.

I myself now face the problem that the device is not sensed by the computer. I'm waiting for Olympus support to reply to my email.

Olympus ds-2400 voice recorder is saving files as ds2 - how do we convert them to dss


The DS-2400 were one of the first Olympus DVRs to use the new DSS Pro (.ds2) format.

We later discovered that you will need to update the firmware to in order to have it revert to the standard DSS format (.dss)

You will need the DS-2400_FirmwareUpdate_DssClassic to make this happen. All certified dealers will have access to this firmware update.

Stay classy,

We are experiencing issues within the AS-5000 transcription software for our Olympus DS-5000 recorders. When a typist selects the status of the file (''pending'', ''finished'', etc.) an error message pops...


This is a know issue of the initial releases of DSS Pro 5. Downloading the update (using the Update option inside the software) will not really fix it, but will at least give you an option to override the Locked status. This "fix" appears from update 5.0.5

Convert ds2 file to dss


Best option is to get the person using the recorder which creates the .ds2 files, which is likely to be an Olympus DS-5000, to set the recorder to record audio in "classic mode" which will produce .dss files. Here is a YouTube video on how to set the DS-5000 to record in classic mode.
