Using the Voice recording function

This presenter is equipped with a voice recording function. The recorded data is stored into the SD memory card.

1.Turn on the device. Press once and release the “voice record button” to start recording. The LED beneath the button will glow red when recording is in progress.

2.Press once and release the “voice record button” to end recording.

Note: Please note that it will take some time for the card reader to finish process voice recording after turning off the recording function. The more data is stored in the memory card the longer it will take for the red light to turn off. This is not a defect; this is the way card reader operates.Please make sure the record indicator LED is off.

3. Always speak into the microphone positioned above the laser button.

When the SD card is full, the LED under the recording button will flash twice per second and the recording will stop functioning. If the presenter is low in battery, the LED under the Targus logo will flash continuously until the power is completely out.This is an indication that there’s only enough power for approximately 30 minutes (depending on the usage) --you should replace the batteries now.
