Downloading for "Dummies?"
« on: June 04, 2009, 08:48:40 AM »

I need someone to make me one of hose "For Dummies" books on downloading software into Pleo.  Im not sure if I have 1.1 altho it seems I do the more I read.  Ive only had him turned on twice.. but have noticed he hums when the chin is scratched... he definetaly can identify his leaf... sometimes biting on it other times shaking it trying to play tug o war... I noticed last night with a bunch of kids around him that he doenst have any interest in walking.... but when left alone takes off on his own right away---  Id really like to have someone help me out with downloading the skits.... I know what an sd card is and I know where it goes on Pleo... I have a computer, I just dont know much about dowloading from my computer... anyone??

Ok lol. Its quite easy and applies to downloading pretty much anything on the net :)

Step 1: Find your download. In this case the top three threads here: http://bobthepleo.com/forums/index.php?board=2.0 and http://bobthepleo.com/forums/index.php?topic=138.0

Step 2: Click the green link with the name of the one you wish to download. For the official downloads they will be in the first post, for the second link there look at the very bottom of the posts and be sure to check if you need one or two files.

Step 3: A box may come up asking where you want to download the file to, select desktop or somewhere easy for you to find. If you are not given the option to choose the default folders are usually: (I only know it for vista sorry)

computer/c drive/users/your name here/downloads

OR

computer/c drive/users/your name here/documents/downloads.

Step 4: Wait a minute or two for them to download.

Step 5: If the file is a .zip file you will need to right click on it and use extract. If it is an .urf file you are good to go.

Step 6: Insert your SD card into your card reader, open it to view files, make sure no files are on it.

Step 7: Drag or cut and paste the .urf file/s onto the root of the SD card ie not in a folder.

Step 8: Remove card and insert in Pleo, switch Pleo on, wait a few minutes for it to load and enjoy :)

Note: Only have one personality on the SD card at a time.

What if the Pleo does not react on the SD card? I tried several times...

Are you sure the files are copied directly onto the card and not in a file?  That might be it?
