8 Sending files from a computer Connect the BPP to the computer via the long USB cable BPP will show as a removable drive under My Computer You may copy and paste files or folders using Windows commands

9 Copying content directly into the SD Card Requires a Card Reader connected to the computer (not included with BPP) First, remove the card from the device (be sure BPP is paused or off) Alternatively, use a different card Copy and paste files or folders into the card using Windows commands

10 Transferring content without a computer BPP writes/reads content from USB devices including: o Digital Talking Book cartridges from NLS o Thumb drives o External CD, DVD, or Disk Drive with disks including both data and music CDs

11 To transfer content using a USB device Turn device on (if device has on/off switch) Plug small end of short USB cable into USB jack on Book Port Plus. Plug large end of cable into the external USB device. If Book Port Plus is not on, turn it on and press the Title key until it responds "USB Media If Book Port Plus is already on, it announces "USB Media" to let you know it detects the connection Find/play books using previous instructions

It responds by asking you to confirm the backup by pressing Enter. Press Enter. It responds by copying the selected book, file, or music CD to the SD card. Depending on the size and type of title, this process may take several minutes. After copying title, USB device may be removed

13 Things to keep in mind Protected material may require special software/authorization to play (NLS, RFBD, Bookshare, Audible) Daisy titles require that each title resides in its own folder If the books are compressed into a zip file, you must first extract the contents of that zip file to a folder before copying the title. (Book Port Plus does not recognize zip files.) Music folders can be nested only eight deep. There can be only 1024 files or folders in each folder.

14 Using the Book Transfer software Once installed from included CD, makes the process of identifying and copying titles easy by performing the following tasks: Unzips archive files such as those downloaded from NLS and Bookshare Converts braille files to text Converts most PDFs to text Sends a Digital Talking Book on CD Creates folders on the SD card Sends entire folders from the PC Adds Book Port Plus to the Send To context menu of the File Explorer Previews supported files Queues selected files for later transfer Checks for software and firmware updates
