    • Answer
    • Delete files using your computer:

      1. Connect your device to a computer using a data cable. (It is recommended to connect directly to the computer, not through a hub). If your device is not being recognized by your computer, you may need to update your computer's USB drivers HERE.

        Note: microSD Card Slot not active. A future software upgrade will enable this device support up to microSD cards up to 32GB.
      2. Use your computer interface to delete files stored on your device.
