How to change folder labels on a Mac.

Some people like to be organized. Others don't. If you like to be organized and like to keep files such pictures, videos, and audio/music in folders, an apple (mac) is the computer for you. To wasially organize folders, simply make your folders. Add files, pictures, etc. Then Decide what the folder(s) is going to be. (The Topic. Pictures, Home Videos, Music, Back-ups, etc.) On the desktop, click once. Now at the top left it should say "Finder" next the the apple logo. Click the "Finder" button. Now a drop down menu should appear. In the list of the drop down menu, scroll down till you see "Preferences." Click on the "Preferences" button that s hilighted. Now a box should appear. If not, repeat these steps over again. (It usually shows up the first time.) Now, on the new box, at the top there should be 4 choices. You want the one that says "Labels." Click that. Then you should have different colors, (Red under red oval, Blue under blue oval etc.) Change the Color name to what you want. (Music, Movies etc.) This is great for organizing. no once you are done, go into that folder you created earlier. Hilight that folder once. Right click. under "Labels" select the color you created that goes with that topic. it's that simple!

How can I pull up files off of my SD card?

The e260 can only play audio files from the microSD card, and they have to be in a folder named "MUSIC". Pictures and videos must be in main memory.

If your audio files are not in a folder named "MUSIC" then put the card back into whatever you used to put the files there in the first place and either rename the folder or create a new one and put the files there.
