How do I transfer files between my LeapFrog Epic tablet and a micro SD card?

Photos, music, and videos may be transferred back and forth between a micro SD card and the LeapFrog Epic tablet.  Note that apps cannot be transferred to or from a micro SD card.

You will need to use a computer to transfer data between the tablet and the SD card. For Windows computers, this will be a plug and play experience.  For Mac computers, you will need to download and install Google's Android File Transfer (AFT) program.

The below screen shots show examples of how this process works. Depending on your operating system the screens on your computer may look different than the below screen shots.

Windows Computers

With the micro SD card inserted in the LeapFrog Epic tablet, connect the tablet to the computer using the included USB cord. Windows AutoPlay should automatically launch on your computer.

When Windows AutoPlay opens on your computer, click on "Open device to view files"

With the micro SD card installed in the tablet, the computer sees two storage drives, the SD card and the LeapFrog Epic tablet (USB storage). You may double click to open either, then drag content from one to the other.

Double clicking "SD card" on the above screen will show a view of the contents of the micro SD card. From the contents of the SD card, music, photos and unencrypted videos may be dragged from the SD card to the LeapFrog Epic tablet.

The same steps would work to drag content from the LeapFrog Epic tablet to the micro SD card.  Remember, apps cannot be transferred to or from the micro SD card. Content that may transferred is music, photos, and unencrypted videos.

Mac Computers

To use a Mac computer to manage content on the LeapFrog Epic tablet, download and install on your computer Google's Android File Transfer (AFT) program from https://www.android.com/filetransfer/.

Follow the instructions provided on the download page to install  the program on your computer.

When your tablet has an SD card installed and is connected to your computer, the AFT program will show all file folders on the tablet and SD card. You will see two tabs at the top of the AFT program. The "USB Storage" tab will show all files on your tablet while the "SD card" tab will show all files on your micro SD card.

To transfer a photo or video taken with the LeapFrog Epic camera from your tablet to the micro SD card, select the USB Storage tab. Photos and videos will be in the folder DCIM > Camera with photos in a .jpg format and videos in a mp4 format.  Drag the file you wish to transfer from the tablet to your computer desktop:

Next, click the "SD Card" tab on the AFT program, then drag the file from your computer desktop back to the AFT program:

The same steps in reverse would work to transfer content from the micro SD card to the LeapFrog Epic tablet. Remember, apps cannot be transferred to or from the micro SD card. Content that may transferred is music, photos, and unencrypted videos.
