Configure FlashScan to use an SD Card

There are 2 different methods to access Device Settings.  To access these;

  1. Connect your FlashScan to your PC.

    1. Select the [F6: Devices] option in the left-hand pane; or
    2. Select the [F5: BBX] -> [F6: Quick Setup] menu and select the Edit FlashScan Settings option.

Both menu options perform the same function, however the option via the [F5: BBX] -> [F6: Quick Setup] allows these settings to be programmed in a single process along with all other BBX settings.  The option via [F6: Devices] requires separate programming to other BBX settings.

Navigate to the Device Settings option using either of the above methods;

  1. Select [F2: General] and select appropriate file system options.

  1. Navigate to [F5: Options] and select appropriate options to check SD card space and enable data protection for SD card.
  2. Select other User Configuraiton options as appropriate.  Refer to Device Settings article for further details.
  3. Program FlashScan using the Program option, or
  4. Select Close to return to the Quick Setup, select Include current device settings, and Program Quick Setup.
