1. Charging your Qudo
You can charge the Qudo when it is off or on. Open the flap on the left hand side of the Qudo. Insert
the charger into the charging port (5).
If the Qudo is off an image of a battery will appear in the centre of the screen to indicate that it is
charging.
If the Qudo is on the battery icon in the top right hand corner will flash to indicate that is charging.
3
This means that you can still use the Qudo whilst it is being charged e.g. the Qudo can be attached to
the mains whilst playing a slideshow.
The Qudo will take at up to 3 hours to reach a full charge.
Please note: You can only charge the Qudo via the supplied mains charger. It is NOT possible to
charge the Qudo via a USB connection.
2. Turning the Qudo on and off
On the left of your album, there is an on/off switch (2).
Slide it up to the on position to turn it on.
Slide it back down to the off position to turn it off.
3. Inserting an SD card
Open the flap on the left hand side of the Qudo. Hold the Qudo so that it is facing you and hold the
SD card with the gold contacts facing up. Insert the SD card, gold contacts first, into the SD slot (3)
until it is firmly in place and cannot go in any further. Please note that the SD slot is not spring
loaded and therefore to remove the SD card you simply need to pull it out of the slot.
4. Connecting to a computer
The Qudo must be on when you connect it to your computer. Open the flap on the left hand side of
the Qudo. Plug the supplied USB lead into your computer and then plug the other end of the USB
cable into the USB port under the flap (4). The Qudo will give you the following options:
Connect to PC…
Connect Printer
Use the up and down buttons (7 & 8) to choose connect to PC. Press the OK button (9) to confirm
your choice. Your Qudo will then appear as a removable disk in My Computer. If you have an SD card
inserted the Qudo will appear as two removable disks, one for the internal memory and one for the
SD card (external memory). If you do not have an SD card inserted only one removable disk will
appear. Select which removable disk you would like and double click on it. You can then drag and
drop photos from your computer to the Qudo’s internal memory or the SD card. We recommend
that you sort your images into files for easier access when viewing on your Qudo.
Please note: The Qudo can only read photos that are in .jpg or .bmp format.
5. Disconnecting the Qudo from your computer
When you have finished disconnect the Qudo by pressing the Exit button on the Qudo (10) and then
remove the USB cable.
