Caution: After installing the Juice Box™ Card Reader software, you must have the USBcompatible card reader plugged into the computer in order to access all of the functions of this software. Getting Started Installing the USB Card Reader In order to transfer music or pictures from your computer to the Juice Box™ player, you must have your USB-compatible card reader installed. The reader can be plugged into any USB port available on your computer. Using a USB Extension Cord (if needed) If your USB port is located in the back of the computer, you can use the USB cable as an extension so that your card reader is still accessible from the front. Creating a Juice Box™ formatted chip The Juice Box™ media player tags most SD or MMC storage chips with a special code so that the Juice Box™ software recognizes the chip as suitable for downloads. Tagging a chip takes a few simple steps: Take the new SD or MMC storage chip and insert it into the Juice Box™ Flash Card adapter, label-side up. The Flash Card adapter is a converter that allows standard storage chips to act like Juiceware™ media chips. Insert the loaded Juice Box™ Flash Card adapter (label-side up) into a Juice Box™ media player. Turn on the Juice Box™ media player. The Juice Box™ media player will automatically tag your storage chip with the proper code. First, turn OFF the Juice Box™ media player, then take the storage chip out of the Flash Card adapter, insert it into the card reader and it's ready to use! Running Juice Box™ Software In order to access all of the features of the Juice Box™ software, a card reader with a properly formatted chip must be connected to your computer. After properly installing it, you can access the Juice Box™ software by clicking on the Juice Box™ icon on your desktop or by going into the Start Menu and finding the Juice Box™ icon under your Programs menu. The following features can be found within the Juice Box™ program: Import Allows you to import files to enter into either the picture or music library. Delete Deletes highlighted files in either the picture library, the music library, or from off the storage chip. Download Downloads highlighted files from the music or picture library to a properly formatted SD or MMC storage chip. Rip CD Loads in the CoffeeCup® CD & MP3 Ripper (powered by CoffeeCup® software), allowing you to take songs from a CD and drop it into your music library. Settings Allows the user to change the default directory for the picture or music libraries. Help Pulls up the instruction manual. Downloading Music and Pictures To download files to play on your Juice Box™ media player, first click on the Library tab either Music or Picture - which you want to use. You can then import files into the chosen Library by clicking the Import button. The Import button takes you to a default directory (generally, the My Music or My Pictures directory on your desktop computer). You can either select files from that directory or use the taskbar to navigate to another directory. Highlight the files you want to load and then double-click on them (for a single file) or press Enter to import multiple files. If you are trying to import music and picture files at the same time, the Juice Box™ software will automatically sort them into the appropriate library. The selected files will then be copied to the Juice Box™ Libraries. Your music can be sorted through its ID3 tag, allowing cataloguing by Name, Artist, or Album. Pictures are simply arranged alphabetically. You may then download the files to your SD or MMC storage chip simply by highlighting the files in your library and pressing the Download button. You can continue to download files in this manner until the storage chip is filled. The status of the storage chip's memory is presented at the bottom of the screen with a graphical representation showing how much free memory is left. Music Detail The storage chip that comes included with the Juice Box™ MP3 Starter Kit holds 32Mb of storage, approximately a CD's worth of music. The maximum bitrate playable on the Juice Box™ media player is 128kbps. While songs with higher bitrates may be loaded onto the storage chip, these songs will experience drop-out and decompression problems when played on the Juice Box™ media player and may stop the player from working altogether without warning. Picture Details The Juice Box™ software recognizes JPG, BMP, PNG, and GIF picture formats. Pictures downloaded to the storage chip are converted to a .jbp (Juice Box™ Picture) format. The resolution of this format is 240x160. Double clicking on a picture will preview it in the new format; on some personal computers this may make the picture appear smaller and less sharp. Such issues will be immediately resolved when the picture is shown in its proper format on the Juice Box™ player. Previews You can preview the file you want downloaded by double-clicking on it with the mouse. MP3s will play by accessing whatever MP3 music program you have designated as your default player in Windows® operating system. If you Don't have an MP3 player installed on your PC, you will not be able to preview an MP3. You can download one from www.winamp.com Pictures will appear in their .jbp format, at a resolution of 240x160. They may also be rotated so that the picture is oriented correctly for display. Ripping from CDs Utilizing CoffeeCup® software, the Juice Box™ program allows you to 'rip' songs off of a standard CD and download them to a properly formatted SD or MMC chip. To rip songs, do the following steps: Insert your CD into the CD-ROM drive. Left-click the Rip CD button. The song information for the CD should list automatically. This software reads the CD information contained in the id3 tags and will reveal it in the track list. Select the track(s) you want to rip by clicking on the check box to the left of the songs or click the topmost check box to highlight all of the songs. Click the Make MP3s button to start the ripping process. Caution: For the program to operate properly, your display font size must be set to 96 dpi or higher. Right click on your desktop and select Properties, select the Settings tab and click on Advanced. You should be able to change the font setting under the General tab. The program displays each song's progress through the Status bar, which graphically represents how much longer you have until full extraction. The Ripping Menu also has three other features: Settings, Edit Album, and Burn CDs. Settings Settings lets you alter the bitrate setting of the music you are trying to record. Please remember that the Juice Box™ player does not support bitrates higher than 128kbps. Edit Album Allows you to change the ID3 tags of the songs. This includes information about the album, genre, artist, year, or other miscellaneous comment. Burn CDs Selecting the Burn CDs button takes you to the upgrade screen, where you can choose to upgrade this product to the full CD Ripping and Burning Suite created by CoffeeCup® software. An additional fee for the full suite is required. Using Your Selections with the Juice Box™ player Once you have downloaded your content to your storage chip, you are now ready to use the chip with the Juice Box™ media player. Caution: A number of Windows®-based platforms consider SD or MMC chips to be the same as standard hard drives. Before removing a storage chip from the card reader, rightclick on the Removable Hardware icon in the System Tray. This will give you the option to unplug or eject your hardware. Follow its instructions and only when they are completed remove your storage chip from the reader. Insert your SD or MMC card into the Juice Box™ Flash Card adapter (label-side up), which adapts the card to Juiceware™ media chip format. Insert the Flash Card adapter (label-side up) snugly into your Juice Box™ media player. When the player is turned on, it allows you to start playing the content on the chip. The playlist will be determined by the storage chip's directory, written when it was ejected, and cannot be changed. That's it! It's time to enjoy your music on your Juice Box™ player!
