Question: How do I get my DS-5000 to default to DSS (classic mode) format?
Answer: You can do this through [Device Properties] of the DSS Player Pro R5 Dictation Module.
Got to the file menu [Device] > [Device Settings]. In the Stand Alone (device tree), look for {Recording}, under ‘Administrative Settings’.
Choose DSS Classic and tranfer the settings to the recorder by clicking on the [update] button (at the top of the Device Settings dialog box).
