iPlus Storage Device (for Apple iPhone, iPad)

ip110957_dv

iPlus Storage Device
Comes in 32GB, 64GB & 128GB

Notes on how to use iPlus as an External Drive
(to transfer photos from iPhone to desktop or laptop computer)

  1. Format iPlus using exFAT (default) on your desktop or laptop.
  2. Download the “iPlus Manager” App to your iPhone.
  3. Connect your iPlus to your iPhone.
  4. Open iPlus Manager app and touch Photo Album.
  5. Answer “OK” to allow iPlus Manager to access your photos on your iPhone.
  6. Next, go back to “Home” and touch “External” storage.
  7. Create the required new photo folders by touching “+” and select “New Folder”. Give appropriate names to the folders.
  8. Select the photo folder you wish to transfer copies of your photos from the iPhone to iPlus.
  9. Touch the “+” again and now select “From Library”.
  10. Select some or all photos to be copied.
  11. When copying is finished, touch “Done”.
  12. Now you still have the original photos in your iPhone photo album and one extra set in your iPlus storage.
  13. Now the iPlus can be inserted into your desktop or laptop using the USB end and it acts as an extra drive to your computer.
  14. You can now do a proper storage by transferring all the photos in your iPlus to your computer hard disk.
  15. With suitable CD-burning program in your computer, you can even burn a copy onto DVD disk for permanent storage.
  16. For every photo files transfer, it is recommended that you use a new file folder. This is to avoid (in case) two file images having the same file names and the later replaces the older ones ~ normally a warning is given for you to decide whether to replace or to keep both.
  17. Also, if you have a large amount of photos to transfer (1,000 or more), ensure your iPhone is fully charged to last the duration of the transfer. If not, do the transfer in parts.
