I need the serial number for Olympus "DSS player software".

I just bought a used DM-40, and formatted my device before reading that I lost the voice guide files. I tried the above links and s/n for installing DSSplayer 7 but no joy. Does anyone have the files who would be willing to email them to me, and tell me which folder to place them in? Or provide a working s/n for a v7 installation? Thanks, Mike

Can i recover lost dictation?

Possible? YES, Easy? Not always.

First things first: DO NOT take any more dictations with the recorder that you want to recover files from in case you may quite possibly ruin your chances of voice memo file recovery.

Then connect your recorder to a PC with a recovery program installed. Photo Recovery Software (also recover Voice memos, audio and video files) is right what you need to use if you are running Windows. If you are Mac OS X users, turn to Data Recovery for Mac.

But you should remember - the more you use your recorder, the less likely you may be able to recover the deleted files back! So STOP using the device ASAP. Hope my answer is helpful to you. Best regards!

Convert DS2 to WAV

If you have the Olympus software on your computer, either transcription or dictation module, you can change it there. Left click once to highlight the file you want to change then keep your cursor on that file and right click once go up to convert and that is where you can change it to a wav. file

How can a recover delited recordings from my rca

Follow this: First things first: DO NOT take any more recordings with the the same recorder that you want to recover files from.
Then take the memory card or hard drive out of your recorder, and connect it to your computer as it should appear as a "Removable Drive" or put the card in a card reader attached to your PC.

Then install this software Wondershare Photo Recovery (recover videos and audio files too) on your computer. Then start to scan and see if your deleted files can be got back. Get the program from:

For Windows Version
For Mac version

Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to your digital recorder(card or disk) until you can recover your files safely!
I hope you good luck! Regards

I have Olympus DSS 7.0.1

You can connect your digital recorder to PC. Then you can try to recover your deleted files with Easy Drive Data Recovery software:


It uses unique modern algorithms to recover files that other software either recovers incorrectly or is unable to detect.
