Transferring Files using the USB Y-Cable

Transferring Files using the USB Y-Cable

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 a Mac® and in 'My Computer' if using a Windows PC.

Drag and drop files from your personal computer into the default folder types on the G-CONNECT. It is recommended, but not required that you use these folders to organize your files.

As an Admin user, files can be placed in the top-level folders that are private and only visible by users who sign in using the Admin account. Files can also be placed into the Public folder which is accessible by both the Admin and any Guest that logs into the G-CONNECT.

Note: The Wi-Fi password is used as both the password to the Wireless Network and the password to the 'Guest' account.
