Copying Content to G-CONNECT

Copying Content to G-CONNECT

G-CONNECT can be accessed in several ways. Depending on your needs and location, you can use one or all of the following methods to upload content to your G-CONNECT.

Copy Content in USB Mode

For large amounts of content we recommend using the G–CONNECT as a USB drive.

First you will need to power off the G-CONNECT by pressing the power button found on the device until the LED's begin flashing. When the LED's turn off, it is safe to disconnect the power adapter. Plug the two identical ends of the Y-Cable into your personal computer and the third into your G-CONNECT.

Your G-CONNECT should now appear as a drive on your Desktop if using Mac OS X and in Computer if using Windows.
