Question

How do I access my AirPad from my PC?

Answer

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

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

Your AirPad should 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 the System Tray, next to the clock. Click on Safely Remove USB Mass Storage Device.
  2. On your AirPad, touch Turn off USB storage.
  3. Touch the Home icon to exit back to your Home screen.
