Question about Olympus DS-4000 Digital Voice Recorder

1 Answer

Locked file I have a DSS 4000. My student taped interviews and for some reason she cannot explain, the machine gives us a message : please download file, with a lock. There is about 15 hours interviews on a 1 gig file. The thing is, these are research interviews and cannot be done over. We have tried downloading the files to the computer, the computer tells us there is a file, but the access is locked. Can you help ? marc.francine@sympatico.ca

    If you use the olympus software, does it allow you to transfer it to the computer.



    There could be a way through the control panel of the recorder to unlock the file as well.

    Find the file on the computer, move the mouse over the file, press the right mouse button, and select properties. See if you can clear out anything on the Read only box.



    Does the Olympus software indicate that the file is locked?

The folder lock can oly be solved by chosing the option "format" in the sub-menu. But please copy the *.dss - files still resting at your card at your harddisk first.
When the recorder finishes the format procedure, all folders will be unlocked again.

The "Read-Only-Failure" will occur again at recorders with differend user profiles, when you put the switched-off recorder into the docking station first and switch the power button to "on". So avoid this constellation!

Olympus DSS Player Pro Woes!


Could it be that the files are just being regularly accessed by one of the server admin tools and the DSS Player application interprets an open file as 'being transcribed'

What happens when a copy of a .DSS file is made to an operators machine and then loaded locally for transcription?

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

I have installed Oympus DSS player for transcription purposes.


Check whether your foot pedal is a RS-26 or RS-28, and the DSS Player version. For some strange reason the DSS v5 is not backward compatible with the RS-26 foot pedals, and so you would need to purchase a RS-28.
I hope this hepls!

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.
