RouteRecorder® 4C Installation Guide
Basic Operation
The RouteRecorder® 4C system is initially configured to
power up and record automatically when the vehicle
ignition is on. When configured for event-based
recording, it is not necessary for the driver to turn the
system on or to manually initiate or stop recording.
However, a user can start and stop a recording manually
and can control the system as follows:
July 2009

Archiving Video to a PC
Removing the Hard Drive from the MDVR
WARNING: To prevent hard drive damage and loss of data stored
on the removable hard drive, DO NOT use the
Microsoft Windows operating system of the PC to
format the removable hard drive.
Use of the Windows operating system FORMAT
command on the removable hard drive will erase all
data stored on the removable hard drive and make the
removable hard drive unusable in the MDVR.
Furthermore, on some PCs, the operating system may
not automatically recognize the removable hard drive,
in which case the operating system will prompt the user
about whether the unrecognized drive should be
formatted. If appropriate, click the NO button in
response to the following prompt:
THE DISK IN DRIVE X IS NOT FORMATTED.
DO YOU WANT TO FORMAT IT NOW?
CAUTION: To prevent corruption of the hard drive, press the
STOP button on the front panel of the MDVR panel BEFORE
removing the hard drive.
~ Connect the storage media to the PC, as follows:
First connect the optional hard drive reader (Part Number
SV-HDREADER) to a USB port on the PC. Next, plug the
AC adapter into the hard drive reader. Then, insert the
removable hard drive that contains recorded
RouteRecorder® 4C system files into the hard drive
reader, and turn on the key of the hard drive reader.
~ Press the STOP button on the front panel
~ Use one of the provided keys to unlock the access
door lock on the front panel of the MDVR.
~ Press the EJECT button to eject the removable hard
drive.
Meta-Data
The MDVR generates system information (meta-data) for
each image frame and stores it on the archive media (the
removable hard drive). The meta-data describes
conditions (such as the date, time, and status of input
triggers) present at the time of recording.
The storage media (the removable hard drive) will be
recognized by the Microsoft Windows Operating System
of the PC and assigned a drive letter in Microsoft
Windows Explorer, which can be used to copy video files
from the storage media to the PC.
MDVR File Format
The MDVR stores recorded audio/video files on the
installed archive media (the removable hard drive) in
standard PC file format. The MDVR saves each 10minute segment in a separate file and automatically
assigns a filename that identifies the source MDVR and
the starting date and time of the segment. In addition, the
filename identifies “continuation” files (files that are a
continuation of another 10-minute segment) and “event”
files (files that include a user-defined event such as
activation of the vehicle backup lights).
Sample MDVR file names:
Mar.12.2008-17.36.48-001.avi
Mar.12.2008-17.36.48#-002.avi
Mar.12.2008-17.36.48#-003.avi

On-Screen Display
Remote MDVR Access Through FTP
When recorded video is being played back or live video is
being displayed on the optional monitor, meta-data is
displayed on-screen as follows:
The MDVR supports FTP commands in MS-DOS as
follows:
ƒ Cd (changes directory)
ƒ Dir (displays a directory listing)
ƒ Ls (lists the contents of the directory)
ƒ Get (gets a file from the MDVR)
ƒ Delete (deletes a file from the MDVR)
ƒ Rmdir (removes a directory from the MDVR)
WARNING: Use the Rmdir command with caution. The MDVR does
not verify that a directory is empty before allowing the
directory to be deleted. In addition, using the Rmdir
command to delete a directory that is not empty causes
space on the removable hard drive to become
unavailable for use.
A TIME—displays the time in HH:MM:SS format (the
time is set by the user during initial setup and then

H MDVR NAME—displays the user-definable MDVR
name
ROUTERECORDER 4C IG Ver 1.3.docx
System Health Logs
Log files are created and placed in the hard drive’s
SYSTEM\SYSLOG folder. To prevent a file system error
from corrupting all log files, the logging system will fill 10
files in rotation with the oldest file deleted when
necessary. A new file is created if the file reaches 512
records, a new day, or the system is turned off and on
again. Each file has a date stamp in the filename and
can be viewed in date order. See Appendix C: System
Health Logs for more information.

Trigger Setup Menu
The Trigger Setup menu allows assigning an MDVR response and a voltage state ([ACTIVE] HIGH or [ACTIVE] LOW) for
each of the user-defined triggers, as well as the GPS-detected speed and accelerometer thresholds on the X and Y axes.
NOTE:The accelerometer and speed triggers are only available on units equipped with the GPS option.
The mask associated with a trigger indicates which cameras are recorded when the trigger is active. The mask indicates
directly which cameras are recorded so a mask of “123” will record cameras 1, 2, and 3 and not 4. Trigger masks are
additive such that multiple trigger activations create an aggregate mask that is the logical or of all active masks. Camera
1 must always be active, therefore all masks contain camera one.
For example, if two triggers are activated where trigger 1 has the mask “13” and trigger 2 has the mask “4”, then cameras
“1”, “3”, and “4” will all be recorded.
