About These Files

These files will not play on your computer; they must be transferred to a USB flash drive and played on a DTB player. If you do not already own a USB flash drive, you should purchase one. They are available at most large retail stores.

Playing the Contents of a USB Flash Drive

On the right side of the DTB player behind the headphone jack is a USB connector port covered with a cap. Remove the cap to reveal the USB connector. Some USB flash drives may or may not fit in the cartridge slot due to the physical dimensions of the device. Use the same keypad commands to play back the USB's contents as you would a regular DTB cartridge.
