To back up video
The DX4000 supports backup to three different devices. All units support backups to a USB flash memory device (format file system fat or fat32). If you purchased a model that contains a CD-RW or DVD-RW drive, you also can back up video to a blank or reformatted disc. As a safety precaution, the DX4000 will not overwrite a disc that already contains data on it. You must reformat a disc on a computer if you intend to back up video to it from the DX4000. The Backup Player is exported automatically with the video.
