I have a Samsung Real Time DVR Model SHR2082 and it will not do a backup to a cd. I have the manual and was able to do this once, but now it will not let me do it. In the backup menu the box at the bottom left showed USB Memory the first time I did a backup. Now it shows Internal CD and will not allow me to move to the start box to begin the backup.

If you have forgotten your admin password on a Samsung Security DVR, most experts would suggest that you have to contact Samsung and/or send it back to Samsung to have the administrator password reset. While this is true in some cases, it is not always necessary.
Many Samsung Security DVRs have a built-in reset that will allow you to wipe the settings of the device and reset the configuration, including the administrator password. Note that if you perform one of these resets, all settings will be erased and you will have to setup the DVR again. So you should only do this as a last resort - but to reset an admin password, the last resort is the only option.
Reset Procedures for Samsung Security DVRs
There is more than one reset procedure for Samsung Security DVRs, depending on the series and model. But in total, this only amounts to a handful. Since one reset can apply to several different models, I'll provide the resets here so you can try them on yours - I won't associate any one reset with a single model because a complete list of which reset works with what model Security DVR simply doesn't exist. Some of these won't make sense based on the buttons available on your unit or your remote. In those cases, just skip that reset procedure.
If you can perform a reset (in other words, if the instructions match what you have available on your Samsung Security DVR and/or Samsung Security DVR Remote), try it, and let us know in the comments if it works and on what model. If you tell us which model Samsung Security DVR you have, along with your results of each reset procedure, we can compile a complete list of reset procedures by model so that it will be easier for those seeking this information in the future to reset their Samsung Security DVR. Also, if you have a reset that you have used and you know works, let us know and we will add it here. I will update the list of Samsung Security DVR resets/recoveries as I encounter them.
So if one of these doesn't work for you, you may want to check back occasionally. In fact, if you leave your model number in the comments and any specifics about your problem, I'll try to get that specific reset for you. For any of these comments, just use the comment section at the bottom of this page - it is checked regularly.
Samsung Security DVR Default Password
For nearly all Samsung Security DVRs, the default password is 4321. If it hasn't been changed since setup, then you can just use that to access the DVR. The default password is included in the reset procedures for completeness. If you have changed your password or access code for your Samsung Security DVR since it was setup, or if you changed it during the initial setup, use that password in place of the default password. The password will be the latest password that was set on the DVR. If no password has ever been set, then it will be the default.

Everything that you require is on the CD that comes with the DVR.
You just have to set the IP thru hyper-terminal if the DVR is not set to DHCP, but if it is, and you have DHCP server on your network, then just connect it, then install Administrator Console from the CD.
