Problem/Symptom:
My Android device does not have all of the labs that I want to use on it. How do I load large groups of labs at one time?

PASCO Solution:

If you are using a Samsung device, please refer to TN 1222.

Please have ASTRO (or any other preferred file management app) installed.

Then connect the Android device to the computer (some devices like Galaxy Note 10.1 will require proprietary connection while others will use micro USB connection). Once connected the computer will display the device.

Double click GT-N8013 and user will notice the TABLET icon. Only memory card is accessible. Double click to access memory card.

When opened user will see the following (or similar). Double click on DOWNLOAD…

Copy the labs into this folder (DOWNLOAD). In this example we will copy the free 60 sparklabs.

Once the copying has been completed disconnect the device from computer and from the Android device start ASTRO (or preferreed file management app).

Choose “sdcard0” and you will see DOWNLOAD folder…

When the contents of DOWNLOAD is display user will the labs they copied from their computer. Choose the icon idicated by the arrow, this will allow users to select multiple items…

Select all the labs (they will be highlighted when selected). Once all the files have been selected choose MOVE on the bottom of the screen.

Now we have to look for the destination folder. This is the tricky part of the entire process. We have to use the FIND option. Choose the FIND icon indicated by the yellow arrow on the top left. That will prompt a search text field. Type in “experiement” and make sure to check both “sdcard0” and “Local Network”.

When the result in displayed select “FOLDERS” to cascade down. User will notice EXPERIMENT FOLDER. Select to open the folder.

When the folder is opened user will see the contents of new sparklabs. Choose PASTE to complete the move process.

When the PASTE process has been completed user will notice all labs have been moved.

Close ASTRO and open SPARKvue 2.0.56. User will notice the labs withing EXPERIMENT side panel.
