How to Copy your Files to your Kobo Vox Color eReader - use it like a external hard drive.

The Kobo Vox Color eReader also lets you transfer your own files to its internal memory via USB, internet connection, wifi, or let you use an external MicroSD memory card up to 32 GB for adding more space on your Vox eReader.

You can also use your Vox to view and carry files around like a USB flash drive or external hard drive, but you need to remember to bring the USB data cable with you.

The main advantage of using your Vox to carry your files is you can also view and listen to them on your eReader, and you can take out the microSD card to conveniently and quickly transfer files to your PC or laptop, or other Tablet if you bought a microSD memory card and USB MicroSD Card reader.

The best way to add a lot of files to your Vox is with a MicroSD Memory card with USB card reader like Sandisk 32GB MicroSDHC Class 4 Memory Card & MicroSDHC Card Reader (Bulk)

All you need to do is use the MicroSD Memory card which is in the MicroSD card reader to copy files to your drive when connected to a USB port. When you are done copying your files on your computer to the MicroSD memory card you eject it from your computer and card reader, and insert your MicroSD card into your Kobo Vox's microSD memory card slot, and your Vox will detect it when you turn your Vox on.

Some Apps like File Manager/Explorer like File Expert have a Wi-Fi sharing option which let you share and download files from other Wi-Fi devices.You'll also need a File Explorer to access your external memory card which will be located in mnt/extsd folder in File Expert File manager.

For Amazon  Kindle books, and Barnes and Noble books, you would need to download the app to view and download the books you purchase.

If you like to view office, and other types of files, you need to use Apps which are compatible with the file.

The  cheapest way of adding your own files to your Vox is via USB with the bundled USB data cable for connecting your Vox to your computer to transfer files to the internal memory card, but the 8GB of space won't be enough to carry a lot of music, videos, and other files.

You can also use online storage provided by websites like MediaFire, YouSendit, Dropbox, etc to manually upload your computer files to your account, and download them to your Vox by logging into the Vox then opening the web browser to go to your online storage account to download your files one by one by using your web browsers download manager.
