It took me a long time to understand how to create my own program and save it. If you want to create your own program using the demo program, first download the demo program, (ground balance and all) When you are in the program, push the up or down key. Keep on pushing it till you get to the Target Volumn screen. This is the first setting on any of the programs. If you want to change it, press the enter key, and a box will be around the Target Volumn number. You will be able to press the up key to make it louder, or the down key to make it quieter. when you have the target volumn where you want it, press the menu button, and that is where your target volumn will be. Press the down key, and the Audio Threshold screen will come up. If you want to change that, press enter, and a box will be around the number that is there. Again, if you want to change that number, press the up or down key to where you want it and Press the menu button, and what you put in will be there. Keep doing this procedure to all of the settings till you get them where you want them. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT that when your done changing the EEPROM DEMO program to the settings you want, you keep clicking the arrow till you see the EEPROM DEMO with the checkmark by it, and it's lit up, you will see SAVE below it. Click down to SAVE, and PRESS ENTER. If you do not do this, ALL THE ADJUSTMENTS YOU MADE WILL GO BACK TO THE ORIGINAL EEPROM DEMO SETTINGS, and you will have to start all over again. Been there, done that, it sucks.  :031: It's not that hard once you understand. I hope this helps you. Good luck.  :045:

A couple more things. When you get to COURSE GEB and FINE GEB skip over them as they are set to AUTO, unless you want to manuel ground balance while you are detecting. Also, entering what VDI numbers you want to accept or reject can really get confusing. If you want to, you could skip over the DISC EDIT and BLOCK EDIT for now, get all the other settings where you want them, and SAVE them, then go back and set what VDI numbers you want to accept or delete later. It might be easier that way.

HI All:  As posted yesterday-the DFX was giving me a lot of wild signals so I was reading in the DFX ONLY webb site and found that if this happens to unplug the battery with the machine turned on and this will get it to reset a bunch of internal stuff—I did it and WOW clean signals over each thing it hits—SO off to a little beach and about one hr –I noted the signals much more carefully and dug all//
The take with one small non lead sinker giving a strange signal AND the little GOLD CHARM or locket at 5”  WOW///  It took me about 5 min. to separate it from the dirt /// Perry
