REAR SSD MODULE
EJECT MEDIA FROM CAMERA (UNMOUNT)
IMPORTANT: To ensure data integrity, media must always be unmounted prior to removal from the camera. This
ensures that power is removed from the digital media and any open data files are closed. Failure to properly
unmount media may result in lost data or corrupted files.
Removing an SSD without first unmounting it will not physically damage the media, however it does increase
the risk of file corruption, so it’s good operational practice to unmount the media if possible before removing or
disconnecting. Unmounting the digital media takes a few seconds, protects the integrity of your recorded data,
and helps clips mount instantly to your workstation in post-production.
NOTE: Improper removal of media without first unmounting the SSD will result in a warning notification: “Media
removed without first ejecting. Data integrity risk.” Always unmount media before physically removing the disk
to protect your media and footage.
To eject media, follow the instructions below:
1. Eject the media using one of the following modules:
‒ ‒ REDMOTE/Touchscreen LCD: Go to Menu > Media > Eject Media.
‒ ‒ DSMC SIDE HANDLE: Press User Key 7 (lowest of the system keys). The default function for this key is Eject
Media; however, you can remap this key.
‒ ‒ RED MINI-MAG SIDE SSD MODULE/DSMC 1.8" SSD SIDE MODULE: Press User Key 1 + 2. The default function for this
key combination is Eject Media; however, you can remap this key combination.
When media is ejected, Viewfinder output(s) display “Media ejected successfully. It is now safe to remove
media”.
2. Remove media from the camera.

FORMAT
MEDIA
OVERVIEW
The DSMC records REDCODE RAW compressed MOTION clips and STILL images, time code, multi-channel
audio, and metadata to RED MINI-MAGS and REDMAG 1.8" SSDS.
Record duration depends on resolution, REDCODE, and frame rate. A 64GB REDMAG 1.8" SSD typically provides 24 minutes of 24 FPS 5K RAW recording.
Each clip is recorded with a unique name in a clip folder with the extension .RDC. This folder contains all appropriate information describing the clip, including one or more REDCODE RAW .R3D files and all color grading
metadata and other system level metadata such as lens and location information.
The individual clip folders are placed in a folder (root directory) on the digital media. This folder has the extension .RDM. Since the .RDM folder contains all the recorded clips, you can copy all clips from the SSD to other
media by simply copying the .RDM folder.
IMPORTANT: After connecting a RED MINI-MAG or REDMAG 1.8" SSD to the camera and BEFORE recording,
format the SSD using the camera (even if formatting was previously performed on a computer).
FORMAT (ERASE) MEDIA IN-CAMERA
You must format your SSD (media) before recording to it. Formatting is performed in-camera, although media
may be erased on a computer, allowing the camera to just add the necessary project profile and clip log data.
Media formatted in-camera uses a name and root volume in the format:
Camera Letter + Reel Number + Month + Day + **, where ** represents two random alphanumeric characters generated by the camera to prevent any possibility of duplicate names being created. For example:
A001_0512A6.RDM.
IMPORTANT: Media must always be unmounted prior to removal from the camera. This ensures that power is removed from the digital media and any open data files are closed. Failure to properly unmount media may result
in lost data or corrupted files.
FORMAT MEDIA
IMPORTANT: Ensure that data is backed up before formatting media, since formatting erases all data on the SSD.
1. Insert the REDMAG 1.8" SSD or RED MINI-MAG into the media slot on a media module
(RED MINI-MAG SIDE SSD MODULE, REDMAG 1.8" SSD, or REAR SSD MODULE). Ensure that the RED logo is facing outward (away from camera body). Insert the SSD firmly into its slot, but without using excessive force
to prevent damage.
NOTE: When fully inserted, the SSD protrudes slightly from the SSD slot.
2. When an SSD is inserted into the camera, the camera recognizes if the media is unformatted:
‒ ‒ LCD, EVF and external monitors: The word “NONE” displays twice (when no media is present, “NONE ---”
displays).
‒ ‒ REDMOTE: The word “NONE” displays twice (when no media is present, “NONE ---” displays).
‒ ‒ DSMC SIDE HANDLE: The message “NA” displays (when no media present, also displays “NA”).
3. Go to Menu > Media.

R E D D S M C M E D I A O P E R AT I O N G U I D E
4. Select an option from the Select Media drop-down menu.
5. Select Format Media.
6. Select the following options to add camera identity information and 3D position properties:
‒ ‒ Reel No: Select a value in the range 1–999.
‒ ‒ Cam ID: Select a letter in the range A-Z to identify the camera.
‒ ‒ Cam Pos: Identify the camera position as Right, Left, or Center. Default is Center.
‒ ‒ Edge Timecode Start: Manually enter an Edge Timecode Start value (seldom used).
7. Select Format. (The Format button also displays the number of clips that will be deleted during formatting,
if any clips are on the SSD).
8. A dialog box displays and warns you that all clips will be deleted during formatting. Select Format to continue.
Formatting takes about 10 seconds. Once formatting is complete, the Viewfinder output(s) display the following message: “The media was successfully re-formatted and is ready for immediate use”.

R E D D S M C M E D I A O P E R AT I O N G U I D E
SECURE FORMAT MEDIA
IMPORTANT: Ensure that data is backed up before formatting media, since formatting erases all data on the SSD.
Secure format is a low-level format the rebuilds the SSD file system. It should only be used if the performance
of the SSD is in question.
To perform a secure format, follow the instructions below:
1. Go to Menu > Media > Utils.
2. Select Secure Format.
3. Continue to format the media as you would for a normal media format. For more information, go to “Format
Media” on page 34.
FORMAT (ERASE) MEDIA VIA COMPUTER
RED recommends that you only format your SSD via computer if the SSD cannot mount to the camera.
NOTE: If the media was formatted using a secure format, you cannot format the media using an external source.
You must format the media in-camera. For more information on formatting the media in-camera, go to “Format
(Erase) Media In-Camera” on page 34.
FORMAT MEDIA (MACINTOSH OS X)
NOTE: A Mac can format an SSD as MS-DOS (FAT) only when the SSD is already formatted as FAT32 or MSDOS (FAT).
IMPORTANT: Ensure that data is backed up before formatting media, since formatting erases all data on the SSD.

REDCODE
OPTIONS
The tables in this appendix describe the maximum available REDCODE compression ratio for each format and
frame rate combination. The REDCODE values in this appendix are based on DSMC firmware v5.1.34.
The number in each body cell refers to the number to the left of the colon in the REDCODE compression ratio
(the “x” of “x:1”). For example: With a RED EPIC DRAGON and a RED MINI-MAG, when your project format is
5K and your capture frame rate is 24 FPS, the maximum available REDCODE compression ratio is 3:1.
NOTE: The REDCODE values in this appendix do not apply when Sensor Sync Mode (Menu > Settings > Setup
> GPIO/Sync) is set to MoCo. When using MoCo, you must set the frame rate to be at least two times (2x) the
fastest trigger rate used. A high frame rate usually increases the compression, but when you’re using MoCo,
REDCODE is calculated based on FPS/2. Therefore, if you are in MoCo mode, and you set the frame rate to
100.83 FPS, the maximum REDCODE is calculated based on a frame rate of 50.415 FPS.
RED MINI-MAG REDCODE OPTIONS
To see the RED MINI-MAG REDCODE options for SCARLET cameras, go to “SCARLET MYSTERIUM-X REDCODE Options” on page 64.
EPIC DRAGON: RED MINI-MAG 512GB
This table omits rows for the anamorphic formats, since the maximum REDCODE and frame rate pairing for
each anamorphic format and the corresponding non-anamorphic format is the same.
