Digital Wallet -- Smart Storage on the Go!
Now you can enjoy all the advantages of a high capacity hard drive anywhere you go, any time you want. Powered
by Motorola’s ColdFire microprocessor, its own operating system, a 3GB, 6GB, 10GB or 20GB 2.5” hard drive, and
rechargeable NiMH batteries, the Digital Wallet can download, upload and transport files without using a computer or any
external power source.
Folders and files can be downloaded from memory media to the Digital Wallet via a PC card (PCMCIA) adapter.
As an “electronic bridge,” the Digital Wallet acts as an interface between your computer and your camera’s memory media.
Digital camera image folders can be downloaded to the Digital Wallet, freeing up the FLASH memory card so new pictures
can be taken.
Just plug the memory media into the appropriate memory media/PC card (PCMCIA) adapter and then insert the card
adapter into the PC card slot (PCMCIA) on the Digital Wallet to download or upload data to the memory card.
Please note that the Digital Wallet comes supplied with a CompactFlash Type I PC card adapter. If you want to use another
type of memory media, you will need to purchase the appropriate PC card adapter. These PC card adapters can be
purchased at local retail stores or through MindsGear, located at www.mindsgear.com.
You can also upload Digital Wallet folders and files to the memory media. When uploading from the Digital Wallet to the
memory media, only entire files or folders will be uploaded – if the file or folder is too large for the media’s memory capacity,
a display will notify you that “There Isn’t Enough Memory,” and none of the files will be uploaded.
From the Digital Wallet, folders and files can then be downloaded to laptop and desktop computers via a USB connection.
The Digital Wallet’s hard drive will appear as a removable disk icon on the computer, either on the desktop or in the main
directory (usually accessed by Microsoft Explorer on PC platform). After double clicking and opening this removable disk
icon, files and folders can be easily dragged-and-dropped back and forth between the computer and the Digital Wallet.
1
Introduction
Download, upload, and transport all your files, including business files, PowerPoint presentations, Excel and Word
documents, plus computer games, video, movie, MP3, music files and all other high-volume or graphic-intensive files.
With this operation, the Digital Wallet acts as a second or back-up hard drive. The Digital Wallet can also be used as a
portable storage device for easily transporting large files.
Unlike most external hard drives, the Digital Wallet is a true plug-and-play solution; its operating system comes preinstalled. Plus, the Digital Wallet can store data from any PC, Macintosh or Linux computer.
Small, lightweight and easy to use, the Digital Wallet is indispensable as a laptop mass storage accessory.
Able to function as a self-powered portable mass storage device, the Digital Wallet can also be powered using an AC
adapter.
Recharging the batteries takes place while the Digital Wallet is connected to the AC adapter. The recharging process is
self-regulating, so there is no need to worry about overcharging the batteries.
Batteries deliver up to 120 minutes of use and can be recharged approximately 500 times in their lifetime, with each
recharge taking approximately three hours. Additional battery packs can be purchased for extended independent use.
The Digital Wallet automatically turns itself off after a preset time of inactivity, helping extend battery life. You have the
option of adjusting the automatic shut-off delay from disable (always ON) to 20 minutes.
The Digital Wallet comes with a CD containing installation drivers and many useful software applications.
The Digital Wallet is also preloaded with files you can use to practice downloading, uploading and viewing from your PC or
Mac. All the files can be deleted from the unit.
High capacity, platform, power and computer independent. The Digital Wallet is the ultimate Portable Smart Storage
(PSS)TM device when you’re on the go.
Designed to be easy to use, the Digital Wallet has three simple function buttons that allow you to navigate and select options
from several easy-to-follow menus.

to inserting the MindStor Installation CD.
2.
Open your web browser to http://www.mindsatwork.net/dwdownloads.htm. Click on the link for the Digital Wallet drivers.
3.
Click on the “Install Your Driver” button. The drivers will automatically be installed.
4.
When installation is complete, click on “OK”.
CONNECTING TO A MAC VIA USB

6 Installation Guide
CA R IN G F O R T HE DIG ITAL WALLET
This section will cover important tips for everyday use.
Operating Environment
-
Place the Digital Wallet in a cool, dry, clean place; away from cold, moisture, dust, windows and heat sources. Do not expose the
Digital Wallet to rain or water, to prevent fire or electrical shock.
-
If the Digital Wallet has been exposed to extreme temperatures, allow the unit to reach room temperature before use.
-
Keep the unit away from sources of moisture or liquids. Do not attempt to clean the drive with chemical solvents, as this might
damage the finish. Only use a clean, dry cloth on the outside of the unit.
-
Do not drop, jar, bump, shock the unit, or expose to sources of excessive vibration. Keep in mind that the Digital Wallet uses a
2.5” hard drive, similar to those used in laptops. Gently handle and carry your Digital Wallet, especially during data transfers.
Powering the Unit
-
Do not subject unit to severe vibration while powering up.
-
If unit does not turn on when Power button is depressed, check these suggested solutions:
• Check power source.
• Carry Dock is not inserted properly.
• Battery is not connected.
• Battery is not fully charged–then recharge.
• AC adapter is not fully plugged in or is connected to an inoperable outlet.
Care for LCD Screen
-
Do not put pressure on the LCD screen.
-
Do not worry that the LCD screen backlight is always on; it draws little power.
-
Keep the LCD screen from prolonged exposure to sunlight.
7 Caring for the Digital Wallet
Transfer Process
-
The countdown status meter displayed during memory card downloads is an estimated amount of the time needed to complete the
transfer. File size, manufacture make and fragmentation of the hard disk and memory card can cause transfer time to vary.
-
Make sure the memory card is inserted right-side up into the adapter, especially when handling SmartMedia cards.
-
Always carefully insert and remove the memory card from the PC card adapter.
-
A flashing light bulb designates that data is in the transfer process. Until the light bulb has ceased to flash, do not:
1. Disconnect the Digital Wallet from the computer
2. Remove the PC card adapter from the PC card slot
If these procedures are not followed, there may be a chance of lost or corrupt data.
-
Do not use force when connecting the USB cable. The design of the cable connectors and the Digital Wallet USB port prevents
misconnection.
Care for Hard Disk
-
If the unit or buttons become inoperable, depress the reset button located on the back of the unit.
-
You will find the file “M$A$W$.S$N” on the Digital Wallet hard disk. This file can be deleted at any time and will not
be harmed during reformatting. Being that it is a related operating file, it will always be regenerated once the Digital Wallet
is powered on again.
-
Check the Minds@Work website periodically for free firmware updates.
-
To keep your hard drive in peak operating performance, you are advised to periodically run ScanDisk and Disk Defragmenter
(PC users) or reformat the hard drive (Mac & PC users). Without regular maintenance, transfer times will be considerably slower.

Connect the Digital Wallet to your computer via USB and power the unit.
2.
Open Windows Explorer. Right-click once on the “Removable Drive” icon and select “Properties”.

A Key to Exit”.
2. In the case your Mac ever prompts you to “Intialize Disk” and you choose “Continue”, your Digital Wallet
