    "a q&d port from windows"

    September 12, 2010  |   By tomk

    Version: Olympus DSS Player 7.1

    Pros

    it transfers dss files from the voice recorder, when it isn't crashing.

    Cons

    very poor human interface design - a visually ugly mishmash of confusing elements and "ya can't get there from here" thinking. the programmer(s) simply don't have a clue about gui programming. or interface design guidelines.

    Summary

    this is not a programme designed for the mac, and it really shows. i would pay to use an alternative - ANY alternative - that connects with my olympus voice recorder (and preferably converts to a standard sound format, so i never have to use olympus' software again).

    Updated on Sep 12, 2010

    ATTN OLYMPUS: when posting software updates, it would be most helpful (really) to include a note, somewhere, like right in the title or the first line of the description, about which previous versions can or cannot be updated. "suck it and see" is not the right approach, especially if you want paying customers to ever buy your products again.

    "Good Grief...is this the best they could do?"

    August 2, 2010  |   By kskelley6210

    Version: Olympus DSS Player 7.1

    Pros

    I found no pros.

    Cons

    Simple functions like changing a file name are next to impossible. The functions aren't intuitive. Occasional users till have to read the directions every time they use the software. The only thing worse than the software is the directions.

    Summary

    First off, I hate the software that came with the Olympus digital recorder. It would make sense to have drag and drop capabilities when downloading. Instead it takes multiple steps to import the files from the recorder to the computer. Very disappointing.

    "User interface greatly enhanced"

    July 25, 2010  |   By dhstarr

    Version: Olympus DSS Player 7.1

    Pros

    User interface is greatly improved. It appeared to be faster.

    Cons

    I really did not notice any negatives in this release.

    Summary

    UPGRADE!!

    "useful fixes to base v6 DSS software, v6 is cheap!"

    January 28, 2010  |   By CNET-W4CHL

    Version: Olympus DSS Player 7.1

    Pros

    - good manipulation of DSS, even WMA files in newer Olympus recorders
    - inexpensive base software (under $20, sometimes under $10)
    - if you only manipulate DSS and WMA files from recorders, handy tool to have

    Cons

    - some freeware offers most of the functions on WMA files, even for limited DSS translation (see NCH site)
    - only two recent upgrades, this one which provides needed fixes for base V6 and a V7 upgrade available from Olympus web site.

    Summary

    The base software for which this is an upgrade is available inexpensively (try eBay), even the Olympus site it is under $20. There are functions here specific to use of DSS/WMA digital recorders for transcription that are very nice to have (uses indexes, allows insertion and maintenance of indexes). Freeware available gets you other features and this is not a tool for managing other audio files.

    "This is not the player - it is an UPDATE"

    September 24, 2009  |   By fschwab3

    Version: Olympus DSS Player 7.1

    Pros

    Waste of time and effort

    Cons

    Requires a basic player

    Summary

    One must have the basic player for this update. The player costs about $45.00.
    I needlessly downloaded the update only to find that it wasn't a functional player. The info regarding it's true nature is buried in the specifications section of the description.
