Resolution

  1. Insert a USB key into a USB port on the DX8100 front panel.
  2. Click Edit > Export Setup.
  3. Double-click the drive assigned to your USB key.
  4. Type a name for your backup file in the File name text box, and then click Save. The DX8100 exports the settings to the USB key.
    NOTE: Allow 60 seconds for the export process to finish to ensure that all of the DX8100 settings are exported. Then continue with the next step.
  5. Remove the USB device:
    1. From the DX8100 menu, click File > Unplug/Eject Hardware. The Unplug or Eject Hardware dialog box opens.
    2. Click Stop. The Stop a Hardware device dialog box opens.
    3. Select the USB device to which the DX8100 settings are exported.
    4. Click OK. The Safe to Remove Hardware dialog box opens.
    5. Click OK.
    6. Click Close.
    7. Unplug the USB key.

Note: The USB drive must be at least 2GB or greater. Settings from DX8000 cannot be imported to a DX8100 and vise versa.
