Do I need Transfer Companion?

10 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hi there

I've just bought a second-hand Vega, but won't be able to play with it until my birthday at the end of next week. I've downloaded the pdf manual from myadventvega.co.uk, and it suggests I should have some Advent Transfer Companion software, but I don't. I was assuming that the Vega would just show up as a memory card under Windows, and I would be able to use Windows Explorer to transfer files back and forth. Is this not the case?

If I do need the software, is there anywhere I can download it from?

Cheers

Gary.

Really? 27 views and not a single answer to this simple question.

Are you unable to think of any reasons that might be? You don't know the answer. Perhaps the other 27 people didn't either?

You say that you got the manual. Did you read it? Here's an exact copy...

Installing Advent Transfer Companion software

To install the companion software, please follow the steps below:

1� Connect your Vega tablet to your computer using the USB cable

provided�

2� You will notice a USB symbol appear on the tablet in the

notification area at the top of the screen – Drag this bar down to

display the contents�

3� Press the USB CONNECTED button then press TURN ON USB

STORAGE button�

4� Windows should now display an Autorun prompt� Select BROWSE

or OPEN DEVICE� If this prompt does not appear, open MY

COMPUTER on your PC and double-click on the REMOVABLE

DISK that should appear�

5� Double-click on the VegaMedia folder, then double-click on

setup.exe and follow the on-screen instructions to install�

6� Once the installation is complete, you can start the software by

double-clicking the ADVENT TRANSFER COMPANION icon on

your desktop� Note: This companion will now automatically run

each time the system starts�

Using the Advent Transfer Companion software

Once installed, when you next connect your Advent Vega tablet to

your computer and turn on USB storage, the companion software will

automatically open�

To copy files to your device, simply drag them onto the relevant icon�

E�g� drag your picture files onto the Photos icon�

To view the files you already have on your tablet, click the relevant

icon� E�g� click the Video’s icon to display the contents of your Video’s

folder on your tablet�

If you hide the application by clicking the red cross button, you can

re-show it by either:

• Double-clicking the Advent Transfer Companion icon on your

desktop�

• Locate the Advent Transfer Companion icon in your Windows

System Tray/Notification Area and double-clicking it�

To get more help, locate the Advent Transfer Companion icon in your

Windows System Tray/Notification Area, then right-click and select

Of the 27 who read my post, I would expect that at least one of them would know whether I NEED the Transfer Companion software or not. Unfortunately your extract from the manual does not answer that question. Thankfully I got my answer from another forum. Having said that, at least I now know how to get the software should I choose to use it, so thanks for taking the trouble.
