- Aug 2, 2009These are not PDF files. If you have a PDF reader and you double click on a PDF file your computer automatically opens the file with your PDF reader. (Probably Adobe)
Files that end in the mem folder are for Butel software.
Files in the folder USAD are Uniden Software files.
The USAD files can be opened with any of the USAD software currently out there. If you open a file created for the 396T with the BC246 software you have to open each file and save it because they are stored in different formats. So if you download it and use it before it is opened then saved you will get an error.
Remember Uniden's software for the xt model scanners is not out yet.
You will import the files on the internet into FreeScan or Butel's software. The import in under the FILES section of the menu.

Jan (and interested others),
That's the answer (You have to DOWNLOAD the file and THEN open it) but it preplexes me as to "why"? Other pdf type files can just be clicked on. I have just tried generating the file using a different "pdf maker" with the same results - ie garbage.
So that leaves me unsure as to how to "Fix" this (without spending a ton of money on Adobe products <g>).
