Summary: I've had mine for several years and it worked well. However, I can't get it to download files to my Windows 7 computer. According to the Microsoft Windows 7 compatibility center (Amazon blocks foreign URLs), Windows 7 does not support the Olympus DS 330.
Summary: I was given this device with my promotion and I was not aware that I was missing the original software CD. Windows 7 will not recognize the device and there is no driver available on the internet. The support site only offers updates to the original software.
Summary: Ask me five minutes ago and I would have given this product 5 stars. I used it for college for a few years with a PC and it was great. Now, I find out that all those recordings that I transferred from PC to Mac, useless. The ones I just recorded the other day (just pulled it from storage) useless.
Summary: Buyer's beware. Olympus support is horrible. If you ever lose or damage your software Olympus will not help you get it. I lost my CD when I moved and you can't download the software anywhere (you can't even buy it from Olympus). Now I have a completely worthless digital recorder.
Summary: I agree with Reviewer: Andrzej Turski "guru" (Redmond, WA) Very poor support: no driver on Internet, October 12, 2004 The drivers should be available from the web. Thanks for letting me know I'm not the only one who had trouble. What a time waster this has been today.
Summary: We bought DS330 to record interviews for our radio program. While the recorder workes reasonably well, I've run into big problems trying to copy the data onto PC. I was filling in for our regular technician. I was given the recorder with a cable and craddle and expected it to work with the computer.
DOES NOT WORK WITH MACINTOSH! (and poor audio quality)

Summary: BEWARE! This product does not work with Mac OS X 10.2 or later. The software included with the product will launch okay, but it will NOT recognize any Olympus Digital Voice Recorder that you plug into your Macintosh.
Summary: Olympus told me that the DS330 software could handle multiple hand-helds using 1 cradle. In fact, the DS330 software cannot handle multiple users. When hand-helds are docked nothing happens. The only solution is to reboot the computer with the hand held in the cradle.
