    Right.

    So either I am thick - or this is WAY harder than it should be....

    I have a file I recorded - it's my daughters birthday card on CBEEBIES so vital I don't cock it up / delete it etc...

    So - In windows I select the file, click copy, find the folder and paste - simples....

    How on earth do I do this? How do I copy the file preferably to an external hard drive.

    The file is not in a folder, it's just on it's own in the HDD list...

    Thanks once again in advance

    What I meant there was "In windows this is how I do it".

    How do I actually do the same thing in Humax?

    And please, step by step thanks!

    CBeebies channel 121 or CBeebies on the HD (high definition) channel?

    If it's the HD channel then it can be tricky.

    No I was aware of that and did it on the sd channel.

    What I want is the process of how I select a file, then move it as I've tried every permutation I can see and can't do it

    I'm not the best person to answer this as I am very used to doing this.
    What I do is
    (1) connect the external drive formatted in FAT32 or EXT3 or EXT2 to the Humax.
    (2) On the HDR navigate to the folder via the media button
    (3)Ask it to copy
    OPT+ >> Move/Copy >> select drive >> optionally highlight folder >> press red button

    Done that - but it won't highlight the file - only folders - it's not in a folder.....

    The usual difficulty with someone doing this for he first time is that they navigate INTO the folder. The red button needs to be pressed when the folder or device is FIRST highlighted and not after navigation into the folder.

    Sorry, are you referring to the file you want to copy or where you want to copy it to?

    Where the file is now.

    I can put it into a folder if I can work out how to move it!

    Sorry, but I have no idea from that what you are doing on your HDR and therefore why it will not copy.
    (1) Navigate to the recording
    (2) Press OPT+ on the remote
    (3) Select 'Move/Copy' from the pop up menu
    (4) Highlight the device you want to copy it to (but DO NOT press OK)
    (5) Press the red button (Or navigate to and highlight a subfolder to copy to and then press the red button)

    How far are you getting to and what went wrong?
