2. RIGHT CLICK.  Main Menu>Record> Backup. 

3. Select the drive.

To view the downloaded file on the memory stick

2.  3. RIGHT CLICK on the Yes button in the dialog box that asks “Do you want to associate the playing file?”

4. You can now view your video file playing in the Player. You can use the Player's controls to play slow, fast, frame by frame forward or backward.

5. To capture a snapshot click on the button with a hand on it near the bottom right of the Player controls. This will save your snapshot as a bitmap file onto the USB stick in a folder called Pic.

6. To convert the video file to .avi format SINGLE CLICK on the AVI box near the top middle of the Player. Then you can view the video using any media player. (Note however that the Police may prefer to get the video in the native, un-converted file format so it's less likely to be challenged as evidence. The best bet is to just give the Police the memory stick.)
