It's important to make periodic backups of your data as a safety precaution.The Song Backup function creates a copy of all parameter settings within a song (e.g. effect, fader, pan, setting) as well as all of the recorded audio track data within the song. Use the following steps to back up your projects to a computer.

  1. Connect the BR-1200CD and a computer with a standard A/B USB cable.
  2. Press the UTILITY button.
  3. Use the CURSOR buttons to select "USB" and then press ENTER.
  4. Use the CURSOR buttons to select "BACKUP" and then press ENTER. The BR-1200CD begins to communicate with your computer. When a connection with the computer has been established, the message changes to “Copy Song/Data Files to computer.”
    • Windows—a window appears on your computer with the files and folders from the BR-1200CD's hard drive. If this window does not appear, click on the Windows (or Start) icon on the bottom-left of your computer screen and then select "My Computer" (or "Computer). The BR-1200CD (or "Removable Disk") icon will be in Devices with Removable Storage.
    • Mac OS X—double-click on the "BR-1200CD" (or "Removable Disk") icon that is added to your computer's desktop.
  5. Select all of the files and folders in the BR-1200CD's hard drive and copy them to your computer. This can be your Desktop or a backup folder that you have created.
    Do not change the names or locations of any files or folders. Doing so will cause the backup to be non-recoverable.
