Question about Olympus AS-4000 Desktop Digital Voice Recorder

4 Answers

Driver Issues Does anyone have an issue with the Dictation foot pedal suddenly not working. It appears to be an issue with the driver because you simply unplug the device and plug back in and reinstall the driver. That fixes it. Looking for a more permanat solution. Any ideas

My dictation pedal for the Olympus AS-4000 used to work on windows XP, but I upgraded to windows Vista and and the foot pedal no longer works. I have tried it on another XP machine and it works fine, so it can't be the foot pedal.

I have downloaded a patch from the internet, but unfortunately this does not seem to have resolved the issue.

I have contacted olympus twice and they have been very unhelpful.

I bought an as-4000 transcription kit with the foot pedal and had it installed on my computer but my computer got a virus and had to be remade and I had to start over with all new programs. I have lost my disc and don't know how I can reinstall my foot pedal.

I rang the business I bought the transcriber from and they have a "patch" on their site which I downloaded and now all works fine. Their address is www.dictation.co.nz First you click downloads, then drop down Step 1 for digital voice recorders, drop down Step 2 for model number, then click drivers and patches.
Hope this helps

No solutions... I just used my transcribing equipment for the first time. Looking for a more permanent solution other than restarting the program too. Really annoying. Can take breaks in between without this happening.

Water is on the floor by foot pedals of my matiz. had windscreen checked. if car parked .it pours on to pedals when car moves , only after it rains. what could it be?

Also check the drainage channels beneath the windscreen wipers. You may have to remove the air induction panel to get right inside and check of water drainage issues or for rot. This vehicle is very prone to early stage corrosion in many areas.

RS-25 & RS-27 Foot Pedal not working with Vista x64

I had the exact same problem. Per Olympus you have to buy the RS 27 foot pedal. It IS compatible with Vista 64bit. RS 25 which is what I have IS NOT compatible with Vista 64bit.
Cheapest I found online is $43+ shipping for RS 27 foot pedal.
There is a free upgrade to DSS Player 7 on Olympus website that you will have to do for it to work with RS 27 foot pedal.

RS-25 foot pedal not working

The foot pedal needs to be plugged in before the software is installed. Just uninstall the software (your files will be fine) and reinstall with foot pedal attached.

Olympus AS-2000 Dictation Kit - Foot switch doesn't work on Vista

HTML clipboard Olympus AS-2000 is not Vista compatible, you need to upgrade your software, I am not sure which version you have, but I think its version 6 ? You need to upgrade your software from version 6 to 7 (free) and then from version 7 to Standard (also free ) . check your foot pedal if it's RS-23 ( check the back of it ) then you need a new foot pedal ( RS-25 or RS-27 ) , if you have the RS-25 or RS27 you are ok .

Olympus AS-2300

The new DS-5000 SW has still got some quirks. The RS-25 is no longer available and I too have had issues with the 27. If your PC has a serial port try the serial plug, I know it is a step backwards but it has worked for me several times. Hope this helps. For now I steer clear of the DS-5000's.

Foot pedal

Make sure you are installing the Transcription version of the software not the Dictation version (Transcription version serial number starts with RTM and dictation starts with RDM). The foot pedal will not work with the dictation version of the software.

Foot switch will not respond.

The answer is all in the serial number you use to install the DSS player!

Look carefully and you will see the recorder disk has in my case an [E] printed above the install serial number and the transcription pedal has [T]

Install the same disk with the E the driver is there, the control in Control Panel is there, but the foot switch does not work with the software. Put in the serial number with the [T] and foot switch works first time!

If you uninstall the play and then reinstall with the [T] serial number you do not need to reboot or even unplug the foot switch from the USB.
