16 November, 2018

Olympus have issued another firmware upgrade (v1.11) to the high end DS-9500 professional dictaphone. Thanks to the advances in the ODMS R7 software (included with the dictaphone) for Windows both software and firmware updates are now automatically detected and applied. The video below shows how to apply any Olympus DS-9500 firmware update:

Resolved so that the current firmware version of DS-9500 is reflected correctly
in the ODI file.

When connecting DS-9500 to a PC where ODMS R7 is installed, a prompt asking the user to transfer the latest firmware version to the
device is shown although the device has the latest firmware applied.

The system information of DS-9500 is recorded to an ‘ODI’ file in the internal memory. The application references this file to obtain the
firmware version when the device is connected in Storage Mode. Since the current firmware version was not reflected to the ODI file
correctly, ODMS was incorrectly detecting that the recorder had F/W version 1.0.0 applied.

Note: This issue does not occur when in Composite Mode as the recorder version information is obtained via HDI command.
