The USB HOST port is activated. You can plug a USB flash memory for data backup as well as playback of backed up data.
You can choose the “USB (USB memory)” as a File Copy destination. You can copy a file from the internal hard disk partition as well as the internal DVD-RAM drive to the USB flash memory.

You can choose the USB flash memory plugged into the USB HOST port in addition to the DVD-RAM disk as an Auto Copy destination. Although the “BGND (Background) USB” Auto Copy mode is only available (no IMM (Immediate) mode available), the Auto Copy function starts backing up data right after PD606 stops recording. Also the function that editing a file name, false start, circle take, etc. of the original file is reflected to the backup data in the USB flash memory helps you to keep exactly the same copy as the original.

You can additionally create folders to store BWF files in addition to the original “BWFF” folder which is created when formatting the internal hard disk / DVD-RAM disk. You can create up to 32 folders and 250 BWF files can be stored into each folder.

Updating the software using the USB flash memory with the software update file placed in the root directory
