Copy & Paste - Drag & Drop of Files and Folders

Do you find it difficult to drag and drop? Copy files from one folder to another OR move a file from one folder to another? Try this:

  • Open the Windows Explorer. How? Hold down the [WIN] key together with E key. Make this window size in between MAXIMUM and MINIMUM.
  • Open one more window and size it medium as before.
  • Adjust the positions so that you can see both windows side by side
  • Select a drive and folder from one window.
  • Slowly drag it and drop it to an empty space in the other window.
  • If you hold down the [CTRL] key while dragging, you will get a duplicate in the second folder.
  • OR highlight a file from one window , right click, then click on COPY; Now click into the next window, right click on an empty space and click on PASTE
Have a Good Day!

Audiobooks won't go in the audiobook file


when you open My Computer, open the subfolders under music as well. this will show the Audio book folder. Then copy to it by d&d or by <copy> <paste>. If you are really brave try this.
1 right click Start
2. click explore
3 this opens the <file manager> so be careful here.
4. dbble click,< my documents>
5 dbble click <my music>
6 find the audio book folder.
7 find the book files you want to move.
8 click and drag and drop. or click the book files and go to top menu. there should be a <copy> command.
9 click <copy to>
10 browse for Audio book folder find and click ok
Lastly, check the format of the files. If they are MP3 or other windows audio when you select find and add tomy library they will show up in the music folders. To circumvent this jumble up
1 create new play list, name for Audio what ever you want
2 copy files to this playlist. it will then separate them from the rest of your media files and when you play music unless you select this folder it should not play as long as once you move them to the audio list you remove them from the music list by right click over file title and click <remove from list.>
should take less than 5 minutes

Transferring files via Windows
Explorer (Drag-and-Drop)
In Windows XP (with Windows Media
Player 10 or above installed)
In Windows XP and when Windows Media Player10 is installed, the player is connected to the
computer in MTP mode. In the Windows Explorer,when the player is opened, the “Data” and
“Media” views will be displayed for the player.The Data folder is used to manage data content
on the player, such as text files. The Media folderis used to manage media content supported by
the player for playback, such as mp3 and wma.You can copy files to the player through Windows
Explorer (drag-and-drop). Picture files should be copied to the “Media” folder for viewing while
video files can not be dragged and copied to the “Media” folder directly as only .SMV files are
supported. The video files must be converted and transferred via RCA Video Converter for playback
(refer to page 19). Alternatively, you can transferthe converted video files to the "Data" folder via
the Windows Explorer (drag-and-drop).
You can copy files to / delete files from the player through Windows Explorer (drag-and-drop), but
you cannot open or edit the files directly from the player. If you want to edit the files, you will
need to copy the files from the player to another location (drive) in the system.
I was able to locate the manual for you...It will provide you with more information for your device..I hope this helps...
