STEP 4: Copying the audio content file(s) to your Micro SD card.
4.1 Copying new content files from your computer to the Micro SD card.
4.1.1 Plug the Micro SD card directly into the Micro SD card reader slot in your computer, or into the SD card adaptor and then plug the adapter into the SD card reader (slot) on your computer or notebook. An example of an SD card adaptor and Micro SD card can be seen in Figure 23 below.
4.1.2 If your computer or notebook does not have a SD card reader, you should use an external USB SD card reader like the example shown in Figure 24 below.
4.1.3 If you use any of the two methods above and plug the Micro SD card into your computer, a new Removable Disc Drive should automatically open under the “My Computer” folder on your computer. This is the Micro SD card to which the audio content files need to be copied.
4.1.4 Open the new Removable Disc Drive.
4.1.5 Copy the Base Content and/or Additional Content file(s) to the Micro SD Disc Drive. An example of the Additional Content file is shown in Figure 22.
4.1.6 When your computer has finished copying the file(s) to your Micro SD card, you can remove the Micro SD card from the SD card adaptor and insert it into the card reader (slot) of the Audibible®. In order to do this you should first loosen the small screw on the left hand side of the Audibible® and open the cap. (The 8x small copper strips on the Micro SD card must face upwards when inserting it into the Audibible®) Close the cap and insert the small screw being careful not to over tighten.
Congratulations! You are now ready to play the audio content on the Audibible®!
4.2 Copying the content files from one Micro SD card to another
4.2.1 Use the Micro SD card containing the audio content that which you have copied onto.
4.2.2 Follow Steps 4.1.1 to 4.1.4 in the above section.
4.2.3 The Removable Disc Drive folder will contain your audio content. Select all the files in the Removable Disc Drive folder and copy and paste them to your desktop.
4.2.4 When your computer has finished copying the files, you can remove the Micro SD card containing your audio content and insert a new or empty (formatted) Micro SD card.
4.2.5 A new Removable Disc Drive should automatically open under the “My Computer” folder on your computer.
4.2.6 Make sure the newly inserted Micro SD card is formatted. In order to do this, please right click on the Removable Disc Drive and select Format. You will have an option to click on Start to begin the Quick Format session. Click Start.
4.2.7 When the Format process is finished, you can select all the audio content files which you have copied onto your desktop in Step 4.2.3, copy and paste them to the empty (formatted) Removable Disc Drive folder.
4.2.8 When the copying process is finished, the Micro SD card will contain the same audio content as the previous Micro SD card.
4.3 Using a Multiple SD card loader (SD card Duplicator) to copy the audio content to multiple Micro SD cards.
4.3.1 These devices can be used to copy the audio content from a single Micro SD card to multiple Micro SD cards in order to speed up the process. Figure 25 below shows an example of a duplicator that has 8 slave ports meaning it can copy to 8 Micro SD cards simultaneously.
A Multiple SD card Loader (SD card Duplicator) can be purchased from distributors such as Exspansys (South African Distributors).
