8.0 Copying media to the hard disk of the
media player
Once the media player has been setup, you can start to copy your media files to the
hard disk of the EM7480/EM7485.
18 | ENGLISH
8.1 Using the USB (3.0) slave connection (EM7485)
The media player has a fast next generation USB 3.0 slave connection. Using this
USB 3.0 slave connection, copying data will be done with incredible speed. The
highest possible transfer rate will be achieved if your computer also has a USB 3.0
connection and if you are using a USB 3.0 cable. If your computer does not have a
USB 3.0 connection, a USB 2.0 connection can still be used since USB 3.0 is also
compatible with USB 2.0.

8.
Make sure the media player is completely started.
Take the supplied USB 3.0 cable out of the packing.
Connect the USB cable to the USB 3.0 (slave) connection of the media player
(blue USB connection).
Connect the other side of the USB cable to a free USB (3.0) connection of your
computer.
If the device is connected to a TV you will receive a notification asking to reboot
the device, Click ‘Yes’ (If you don’t choose an option the device will automatically
reboot after 20 seconds).
Your computer will automatically recognize and install new hardware. Once the
recognition has been finished, the media player’s hard disk will be recognized by
your computer as an extra local hard disk.
Use the Windows explorer to browse to the hard disk. You will now be able to
copy data to the hard disk of the media player.
The moment you have finished copying the data, you need to safely disconnect
the USB cable from your computer or media player (Right-click the USB sign next
to the clock and click ‘Safely remove hardware’). If not, the media player will not
be able to play the copied files.
8.2 Using the network connection (Samba)
It is also possible to copy your media using the network connection. This way, there is
no need to connect your media player to your computer.

Press the ‘Home’ button to return to the main menu.
Make sure your computer is started and is connected to the same network as the
media player.
Open the Windows Explorer and type: \\IP-Address or type the device name, in
this case: \\EM7480 or \\EM7485 and press the ‘Enter’ key on your keyboard.
Double-click ‘HDD’ after which the hard disk content of the media player is
shown.
You are now able to copy data from your computer to the hard disk of the media
player using the network connection.
19 | ENGLISH
Important information:
Since the media player is intended to be used as a media player with streaming
capabilities, the transfer rate when copying data using your network is not comparable
to your computer. The media player’s processing unit (CPU) and memory are
specifically designed for media capabilities, not for transferring data as fast as
possible. Since both CPU and memory are also responsible for the network
performances, the transfer rate using the network is not as high in comparison to the
transfer rate of your computer. This means the media player will not reach the same
copying speed and downloading speed as you can reach using a computer!
8.3 Saving a samba share in ‘Favourites’
It is possible to create a shortcut to your Samba shares, by placing this share in the
favourites list. This means you can create a shortcut to a specific folder on a network
device such as a NAS. This way, you do not need to login every time and you do not
have to browse to the specific folder.

8.4 Copying files using ‘File Manager’
The media player also has its own copy function. Using this function, it is possible to
copy from USB devices, your network and SD cards to the hard disk of the media
player. Also, it is possible to copy from the internal hard disk or network to USB
devices, your network and SD cards. The big advantage of this copy method is that
copying can be done using the menu of the media player without the need to
physically connect the media player to your computer. During the following steps we
will copy files from a connected USB device to the internal hard disk of the media
player.
1. Connect the USB device to a free USB port of the media player.

12.0 Playing media through the network
The media player is equipped with a UPnP and Samba client. This way, the media
player will be able to stream media from a UPnP server or Samba server through your
network. Windows XP and Vista are usually equipped with Windows Media Player.
Since Windows Media Player 11 is the latest available version for these Windows
versions, we will explain this version for Windows XP and Vista. Also, Windows Media
Player 12 is mentioned as this is the default Media Player version in Windows 7/8/8.1.
44 | ENGLISH
12.1 Setting up Windows Media Player 11 as UPnP server
(Windows XP/Vista)
Your computer does not share media by default. You will have to install a UPnP media
server on your computer to add this functionality. When using Media Player 11, you
can use the built-in UPnP media service of this program. If you enable this option,
your media player can access the music library on your computer. Follow the steps
below to enable this option:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/
45 | ENGLISH
12.2 Setting up Windows Media Player 12 as UPnP server
(Windows 7/8/8.1)
Windows 7/8/8.1 is usually equipped with Windows Media Player 12. If streaming
does not succeed directly, you can refer to the help function in Windows Media Player
12. Windows Media Player 12 has an extensive help function which can be used as a
guide to setup your computer as a UPnP media server.

The steps above are usually sufficient to stream using the UPnP. If this does not
succeed, please visit the Microsoft website for more information.

12.5 Playing media through your network using DLNA
The media player also has the option to function as a DLNA slave. This means the
media player functions as a digital media receiver. Using this function, it is not
necessary to turn on your television to play media. For example: If your media player
is connected to your receiver, you can actually control the media player using another
device which has a DLNA control point function. This way, you will be able to give a
command to the media player which lets the media player play your music without the
need to turn on your television.
Many devices these days can be used as control point. Windows Media player is able
to do so, also are many smart phones such as Apples iPhone and Android smart
phones. As example we will explain how to use the DLNA DMR function with Windows
Media Player 12. Windows Media Player 12 needs to be set as a UPnP server (see
chapter 12.2)

It is not necessary to have the media on the same device as the control point. Your
computer or smart phone can also act as a control point even if your media is stored
on another device such as a NAS and is also connected within the same network.
12.6 Play media through your network using
iMediaShare/Flipps
You can also play media through your network by using the iMediaShare/Flipps
software. Using these APPS, it will become possible to stream video’s from
applications such as YouTube (Flipps) or Media stored on your Smartphone/Tablet
(iMediashare) to your EM7480/EM7485 using your smartphone or tablet (iOS and
Android systems).
