    • 6.3 SD Cards and Internal Memory The device has limited internal memory that is used to run the system and applications on the device. Your files, folders, iRex Companion Software, and settings are saved directly to the SD card. This means that when you remove the SD card, all your information stays securely with you and not on the device. 6.3.1 Inserting the SD card Insert the card into the card slot on the bottom of the device. Press the card in with your finger until you hear or feel it ‘click’. If the card doesn’t want to slide into the slot, it may be upside down. Turn the card over and try again. 6.3.2 Removing the SD card To remove the card from the device, push the card into the device until you hear or feel it ‘click’. Pull back your finger and the card will eject from the slot. You can now pull it free from the device. Never remove the SD card while the Digital Reader or Companion Software is busy. If the card is not safely removed, information on the card could be lost or corrupted. You can safely remove the SD card from the device by selecting Menu>Safely Remove from the bottom row. A message will be displayed when it is safe to remove the card from the device. 6.3.3 Using the Device without a SD Card The device will still work without a card inserted, but because the card holds the content, there isn’t much to see. The Home and Settings icons will still appear on the screen, but the shortcuts will have disappeared. All the settings will be removed from the device, but it will remember the language, lights, and sound settings as well as leave you the option to format new cards for the device. You can read about these in the section about Settings. 6.3.4 Using Your Card on Another iRex Digital Reader If you were to insert your SD card in another Digital Reader, your own settings will be used on the new device. You will also be able to read your own content on the device, but any documents that have Digital Rights Management (DRM) protection will not open. DR1000-1.5.0-EN 9
    • 6.4 Support If you have any questions, comments, or experience problems with your device, you will find a Troubleshooter section and forum on the iRex web site (http://support.irexnet.com/).

    • 7.1 Charging the Digital Reader The Digital Reader is charged by connecting it to a power source using the included USB cable. If you are using a computer to charge, be sure that the computer is turned on, otherwise no power will get to the Digital Reader. 7.1.1 Is it charging? You can tell if the device is charging by looking at the main LED indicator above the screen. While the battery is charging, the LED will be orange. As soon as the battery is fully charged, the LED will turn green. If your device is turned off and you connect it to charge, the device and LED will turn on. If you decide to turn off the device while it is still connected, both the screen and main LED will turn off but the device will remain charging. Main LED Indicator Above the screen, you will see a Light Emitting Diode (LED). This LED will change colour depending on the state the device is in. Device is and is the LED will be: Steady Red ‐ the battery is too low to

    • 7.1.2 How long should it charge? The first time you charge the device, it should be charged longer than necessary in order to extend the lifetime of the battery. When the device is turned off, it will take approximately 3 hours to charge a completely empty battery. If you are using the device while it is charging, it will take longer to charge. To stretch the most out of the battery, you can turn the stylus, lights, and sound off. Learn more about these in Settings. 7.2 Turning the Device On and Off Once the device has charged, it can be turned on and used. Turn the Device On ■ Place your finger on the • sensor below the screen until you hear a beep (approximately 1½ seconds), and then remove your finger ■ The screen will turn on and the device will begin starting up; you will see a start up screen while it is busy ■ The device is ready to use when you see the Home screen appear Turn the Device Off ■ Tap on the lower • sensor with your finger. The menu will open DR1000-1.5.0-EN 13
    • ■ Choose Menu>Turn Off from the bottom row in the menu. The device will start to power down and then turn off 7.3 Using the Sensors The sensors used in the Digital Reader are called capacitive sensors. These work by sensing your fingertip through the plastic. This means that you don’t need to apply any pressure on the sensors; the contact of your skin to the plastic is enough. Next to each sensor is a small green LED that will let you know that it has sensed your finger and you will also hear a beep. 7.3.1 Terms In the rest of this manual, the terms ‘Tap’, ‘Long Press’, ‘Hold’, and ‘Cancel’ will be referred to when describing how to touch the sensors. Tap – is when you quickly touch a sensor with your finger for less than ½ a second Long Press – is when you touch a sensor and keep your finger on it for more than ½ a second. The light next to the sensor will dim to tell you that you have reached the time frame of a long press and can remove your finger for actions such as jumping pages Hold – is when you keep your finger on the sensor Cancel – hold your finger on the sensor for more than 2½ seconds and then remove it.

Each application on the Digital Reader has a unique toolbar, making it easy to organize and place your favorite icons within reach. This makes it fast and easy to find and use functions that are in the menu. Some icons have already been added to the toolbar for you. You can personalize it further by adding icons, replacing them, and even removing them from the toolbar. Note: You can add any icon from the menu that completes one specific task to the toolbar. Below are the few exceptions. Open documents and applications found in the Task Manager cannot be added to the toolbar Toolboxes, such as Writing Tools, cannot be added to the toolbar. The icons inside a toolbox, like the pencil, can be added. DR1000-1.5.0-EN 19

If this happens, you will get a message. You could try dropping it again, and perhaps calibrating the stylus might also help. 8.4.2 Using Icons in the Toolbar The thumbnail and detail view icons have already been placed in the toolbar for you. The instruction below will use these as an example, but the technique can be applied to any icon. ■ Tap one time on the View Details icon in the toolbar. The content browser will change to a detailed list view. ■ Tap one time on the View Thumbnails icon in the toolbar. The content browser will change to a thumbnail view. I How do I know what is active in the toolbar? If an icon is active, it will have a bold, white border around it. You might also sometimes notice that an icon is grayed out. This means it is disabled |at the moment. When you are able to use it again, the gray will disappear. 8.4.3 Removing Icons from the Toolbar Icons can be removed from the toolbar by dragging them away from the toolbar area. Removing an icon from the toolbar does not mean it is removed from Digital Reader; the functions and tools will always be in the menu. ■ Hold the stylus on the icon in the toolbar ■ Drag the icon at least 1cm (about 1/3") away from the toolbar area DR1000-1.5.0- 20 EN

When you open template or WritePad (also a template), it will immediately open a copy for you to write on. All your notes are automatically saved on the SD card and a temporary file name is created. WritePads were included with your device on the SD card. You can also create your own by using the iRex Companion Software to convert any supported document into a template. 14.1 Sharing Your Notes with Others If you want to share your WritePads with others, you will need to use the iRex Companion Software to merge the handwriting to the paper before it can be shared. This is also true for any notes you have written on other documents. Please see iRex Companion Software for more information about merging documents. 14.2 Converting Handwriting to Digital Text If you are interested in converting handwriting to digital text with your computer, you can download and purchase additional software, such as MyScript Notes. You will find a link to the iRex Shop in the iRex Companion Software by clicking on ‘Links’ and choosing ‘iRex Shop’. If you are using MyScript Notes version 2, you can use the Companion Software to export the database file for the program. DR1000-1.5.0-EN 32
