Use of dictaphone

The recorder has no internal storage device, and it is therefore a prerequisite that the MicroSD card that comes with the box is connected to the port on the side of the device. The dictaphone also needs 2 AAA batteries. Check that there is sufficient power on the unit before recording begins. If a longer recording is planned, we recommend that you bring extra batteries. Read the manuals below for more information on how to use the dictaphone:

Memory stick encryption

The supplied memory stick must be used as secure storage for the recordings. It is important that this is set up correctly in advance of the recording. Follow the instructions below:

Windows 10 Guide

macOS Guide

The recording should be transferred to the encrypted memory stick as soon as it is finished. For this you can use the supplied adapter. Remove the memory card (MicroSD) from the recorder and insert it into the adapter. Then insert the adapter into the machine and move the contents to the memory stick.
