When playing with InnoTab®, kids can look, listen, touch, and tilt their way through
activities to discover a world of fun whenever they want and wherever they go. Through
interactive play, your child will develop skills in reading, math, social studies, science,
music, creativity, and more—which we know is important to you.

SD CARD
Some early versions of the InnoTab® firmware do not allow you to store photos in the tablet's internal memory. In
this case, you will need to insert an SD card that contains photos into the InnoTab® SD card slot to ensure that
you have photos for the Enchanted Album activity. Alternately, if you would like to update your InnoTab® to allow
for storage in the internal memory, please connect your InnoTab® to the Learning Lodge Navigator and update
the firmware. See your InnoTab® console manual for more details on using an SD card and the Learning Lodge
Navigator. If your InnoTab® includes a built-in camera, this does not apply.
Note: If you use a photo from an SD card in the Enchanted Album activity, that SD card must be inserted in order
to view your framed photo. If the SD card that contains the photo is not inserted, a blank frame will appear
in the Photo Gallery.

WARNING
A very small percentage of the public, due to an existing condition, may experience epileptic seizures or
momentary loss of consciousness when viewing certain types of flashing colors or patterns. While InnoTab®
The Learning App Tablet does not contribute to any additional risks, we do recommend that parents
supervise their children while they play video games. If your child experiences dizziness, altered vision,
disorientation, or convulsions, discontinue use immediately and consult your physician. Please note that
focusing on an LCD screen at close range and handling touch screen or g.sensor controls for a prolonged

every hour of play.
