Question about Olympus DS-2300 Digital Voice Recorder

1 Answer

Download device When recorder is connected to PC for download, a folder named "Removable Disk/E" opens instead of the icon "Download Device". I have to close the removable disk folder and then open Olympus to tell it to download all. I have the settings selected that the PC should detect recorder and auto download. What settings do I need to adjust so "removable disk folder" does not open.

The easiest way to correct that is to uninstall and reinstall the DSS player software. Before you go so far though, open DSS Player and go to Tools then Options and make sure the Auto download option is checked. If the option is checked but not working just uninstall and reinstall to reset the drive associations.

you should have gotten a data cable with that DVR if not that one has a mini usb connector either in the side or on the bottom of it. all you do is connect the mini USB cable in the side of the device and you'll get a pop up window and on that window one of the choices will be "open folder" then you can left click or select all and drag or copy the files directly to a folder in your computer's hard drive.

I do not have an installation CD. I would like to download the audio files to my PC. How can I do so? Pam Sheppard


Normally, if you have a cable with USB connection for you device, the computer will automatically discover the device after it is plugged into the computer - plug and play. Allow Windows to load the driver and wait for it to tell you it is ready for use. Then check "My Computer" and look for the recorder icon. If the icon is visible, double click it and open the audio files you want to transfer to the computer. It's just a matter of cut and paste or copy and paste to your desired location in your computer.

Downloading recordings


HI a quick search reveals that Quick Link is required to transfer Voice memos to PC.

However in the Owners Manual here it dosn't mention it. (Click the link to see the PDF)

The Quick Search link there does have a menu for wav playing Software. But as a USB storage device I would suspect that when you plug it into a computer, and it does it's automatic drive install, the device should pop up as an additonal Drive in the "My Computer" window. Try opening the My Computer, and plugging the device in with the Mini USB cord you have, and see if a new drive icon pops into the window, If so, that's what you're looking for.

The Specs say the device contains four folders that can contain up to 100 files each. They're most likely WAV files.

Good luck with that.
Richard.

Denpa drivers required for online download


Depends what OS you are using. If you are using Windows ME/2000/XP/Vista then you do not need drivers for device to be recognized by PC when it is connected via USB cable (operating system will automatically work out what drivers are needed and configure so that the PC 'sees' the device - once seen it will show up in my computer as 'removable disk' icon).
If you are using Win98 then you need to install the driver. I haven't found anywhere on the Web where the files are located but they may be on the Windows 98 CD itself (they are identified as HB_UDISK_DRIVERS).
For example, from the installation CD the full path would be:
D:\HB_UDI~1\WIN98\HB__UDISC.INF where the CD-ROM drive is called the D drive (depends on hard disk configuration).
There is another question on here where someone has posted a link to a site to download software...not sure if the device driver files are available there. Note that the drivers merely enable your PC to recognize the device - the won't be any use in encoding/decoding/editing the files; that's done by separate software programs.
Good luck. Repost if you're having no joy...I may be able to dig out my installation CD and burn/mail you a copy. I'll check back in a week or so.
