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.

To factory reset the SDR-B74301
Reboot the DVR
Once the DVR has rebooted, enter the following sequence on the remote:
UP, RIGHT, 5, 3, 3
You will be prompted to do a factory reset. Confirm
The SSCDVR only supports up to a 128MB memory stick. This was the highest capacity available when the SSCDVR was manufactured.
Further, the memory stick must have the standard Sony interface. This isn't to say that it has to be a Sony, just that it has to have that standard. Lexar and ?Magicgate? are other possibilities.
I don't think anything that says "duo" or "pro" and comes with an adapter sleeve will work. It has to be the "old", full-size stick.
GVI tech support says that the stick will hold 2-6 minutes of video in an encrypted format. It will save as an executable that can be viewed on your computer. If you need more than the number of minutes that the memory stick can hold, you need to sneakernet the card to your computer, copy the file there, then take the stick back to your DVR, erase the stick there, and load on the next batch. Repeat until you have all the data you need.
As a workaround, I use a VCR or DVD burner to back off audio and video. I plug an S-vid cable from the back of the svid-out of the DVR to the s-vid in on the video device. I run an RCA cable from the audio out on the DVR to one of the audio ins on the video device. (I lost my mono to stereo RCA cable, but it seems to work fine this way anyhow.)
Then you just get the DVR to the right place for the event you want to back up, hit record on your video device, and you are good to go!
