How do I upload files from the Olympus DS-330?

Answer / Solution

Upload Files from the Olympus DS-330 Explained


The InfraWare Dictation Client (IDC) v2009 can upload dictations from the Olympus DS-330.  This particular handheld does not create a drive letter on the computer, so it requires special steps to upload the files to the InfraWare platform using the IDC. 


  1. Olympus DSS Player 2002 or above installed
  2. IDC v2009 installed

Before You Begin 

Set your User Settings:

  • Choose the default Facility and Author
  • Put a checkmark next to "Automatically send files after retrieving files": 
    • Files will automatically send after they have been retrieved from the DS-330.
  • Put a checkmark next to "By default, delete files after retrieving them."
    • Files will be deleted from the handheld after retrieval. 
  • Put a checkmark next to "Attempt to detect duplicate dictations"
    • The IDC will try to help the user to avoid uploading the same dictation more than once.
  • Delete sent dictations after ____ days. --  After this number of days, the IDC will delete the files from the IDC. 


  • Plug the handheld recorder into the computer.  
  • Using your login and password, log in to the IDC.
  • Be sure the Olympus Software does not open. If it opens automatically, close it. 
  • Click on the "3" button.
