Transfer Media from Mobile Device to Computer

Transferring your media files from your Android or Apple mobile device to your computer (so you can upload to QualBoard from your computer) involves several steps, but is a simple process. Here's how:

Getting Started

In case you have difficulty uploading your picture or video assignments, here are some helpful tips:

To upload a picture or video from your desktop or laptop:

  1. Take your picture/video on either your mobile device or camera.
  2. For Mobile users, you can attach this picture/video in an email to yourself.  When using your desktop or laptop, download the attachment from the email andyou can save it to your computer. For those using a standard digital camera, you can upload the content to your desktop or laptop.
  3. Upload your picture/video to the Board simply by clicking “Reply” and selecting the saved video file name from your desktop or laptop.

Video Pointers:

-Video Max Time: 1 minute! Keeping your videos to this max time will help with uploading time (you can create as many of these as you would like!).

-Make sure that you are holding your phone horizontal, that there is good lighting, and that your speakers are turned up! Some phones have the toggle back and forth option to show your face, and then a 180 reverse to what you're filming. Feel free to use this so we can see you too!

- We have our own around the clock technical support (M-F), and on call over the weekend, so please do not hesitate to email: support@qualboard.com for anything. You can also select the "Chat with QualBoard Customer Support" on the bottom left of the QualBoard screen to instant message them. They can walk you through anything that you may be having trouble with.

For Android Smartphones / Tablets :

You can use a USB cable to transfer music, pictures, and other files from your device to a computer and vice versa.

Windows transfer:

1. Connect your device to the USB port on your computer. Its USB storage is mounted as a drive and appears on your computer screen.
2. Copy files back and forth as you would using any other external device.
3. When you finish, eject the device from within Windows before unplugging the USB cable.

Mac OS transfer:

1. Install Android File Transfer from www.android.com/filetransfer, and follow the instructions there (If you are using Android File Transfer for the first time, double-click it to open it. After the first connection, it opens automatically whenever you connect).
2. Connect your device to your computer with a USB cable. Android File Transfer will start, if it’s not already running, and opens a window that displays the contents of your device, along with storage space details at the bottom of the window.
3. Work with this window like you do in the Finder window: open and close folders, create new folders, and drag files to or from it and other Finder windows.
4. Disconnect the USB cable when you finish.

For Apple Devices (Using iTunes):

Apple provides a way to transfer files to applications in iTunes via USB cable.

Please note that the Downloads folder will not appear in iTunes for USB transferring.

USB file transfer using Apple's iTunes computer program (iTunes File Sharing)
    
    
To transfer files with iTunes program:

  1. Start iTunes on your computer (make sure that you have the latest version of iTunes) 
  2. Connect your iPad / iPhone / iPod touch to your computer via USB cable 
  3. Click on your device's name on the left pane of iTunes window 
  4. Select the Apps tab on the right pane of iTunes window 
  5. Scroll down until you find the File Sharing section 
  6. Select "GoodReader" in the list of apps that support iTunes File Sharing 
  7. In the GoodReader Documents window, you will find documents stored in the My Documents folder within GoodReader 
  8. Drop your files to this window, and they will be immediately transferred to GoodReader 
  9. You can drop multiple files at once. There's no need to drop them one-by-one 
  10. Apple has chosen not to allow dropping folders to this window, so drop only files (you can ZIP your folders and transfer ZIP-archives with iTunes, those ZIP-archives can be later unzipped inside GoodReader). 
  11. You can also transfer files and folders in the opposite direction - from GoodReader to the computer 
  12. All files that you transfer with iTunes will appear in the My Documents folder of GoodReader. You can use GoodReader's File Management tools later to move those files to any subfolder inside GoodReader.
