Question:Is there anyway to have the DS2400/DS3400/DS5000 not create an XML file?
No, you can disable the XML file during transmission (email/FTP) but that’s it. You cannot turn off the XML file in the Olympus application since that’s not a feature but rather is a core design aspect of the Olympus software.
