You will need a USB A to Mini-B cable to do this:

  1. Connect the cable to the PC and to the AirPad7p.
  2. Hold the AirPad in a horizontal orientation. You should see a USB symbol in the notification bar at the bottom of your AirPad's screen, on the right hand side:

  6. Next, touch OK in the window that appears.


Your AirPad will now appear as two different Removable Storage Devices in “My Computer” - one for the main device memory, and one for the microSD card.

Transfer files like you would transfer from any drive to another. Once you are done transferring files, be sure to follow these steps:

  1. Click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon in your PC’s System Tray, next to the clock. Click on Eject, or Safely Remove USB Mass Storage Device.
  2. On your AirPad, touch Turn off USB storage.
