Question about Panasonic RR-US470 Handheld Digital Transcriber / Recorder
It would seem the encryption key is specific to the Secure Folder that is on your recorder.
All the other folders should be public access.
So when it requests an encryption key, just type in anything.
It will sternly tell you that this is the incorrect input and then promptly allow you to access most of your folders anyway.
This should be sufficient unless you have vitally important voice recordings that need secure encryption (recording stored in the secure folder), In that case, it's time to Pay The Man.

for me the problem is solved.
At my old computer the software was still installed, so I could export the key and import it at my new installation. Work great.
I phoned with panasonic. If you pay a small amount of money, then panasonic can remove the key.
But you should not have any problems to use your device. Without the key I can use the software, the only thing what is disabled is the security-folder.

For the 450 Model;
To reset the authrentication key of the unit, please try the following:
-take out the batteries of the unit
-put the unit onto HOLD
-put the batteries back into the unit; the unit should display "hold"
-press and hold ERASE, STOP, and REWIND or tilt the joystick left on the unit within 3 seconds
-if this is done correctly the LCD should light up and the REC light will blink; if not repeat the previous steps
-tilt and hold the joystick down for 10seconds; the LCD screen will display "hey del" to "finish"
Now I had to fiddle around a bit, like change the folder from ABC, etc. in order to get the instructions to work.
Now when you get it Finish(ed) just take out the batteries. The files were still intact in the recorder for me. I then plugged it in with the Voice Editing Program open, and then when asked to enter the Authentication Key, it worked.
I set the new key, But I thought it was supposed to ask you for the key everytime you plugged it it, but just the once (Win 7).
I got my instructions for this person:

Hi, I had the same problem, but if you disconnect the recorder while this dialogue box is open and reconnect it you can enter a new key and save it. I managed to do that, but could still not download my files! Can somebody help me? Erika
