Exporting data from the C10

Transferring Data from the C10

Place a USB stick in the USB Slot. IMPORTANT: The C-10 operating system does not have virus protection.  It is absolutely essential to use a clean USB stick and/or laptop anytime you are connecting to the scanner. It is highly recommended that you dedicate a single USB stick to the scanner and that you always use a clean computer to avoid infecting the scanner.  If you are using the USB stick with multiple computers, scan it for infections before inserting it into the scanner.The first time you use a new stick it will take ~30secs to recognize the new device.

The highlighted area will show you the USB Stick is ready to use. Click into the ‘Tools’ Menu.
