Transferring Files
The USB 2.0 Hi-Speed connection makes it easy to
transfer music, video, photo, and text files (or any other
data) quickly between the player and your computer.
Simply use the player as you would a floppy disk using
basic operating system commands.
If you need further assistance with transferring files,
please refer to your operating system’s instruction manual or on-screen help. If you are using media management
software such as iTunes, Winamp, or Windows Media
Player, please refer to their documentation for support.
Do not disconnect or otherwise interrupt the player during transmission—this could damage or
corrupt the player’s firmware or your files. If the
player is accidentally disconnected and is not
working properly, try resetting the player.
