Answer:

1.     If the package is stored on a file sharing device (i.e. USB storage device, flash drive, etc), connect it to your device or the appropriate port on the Windows computer. If you are using an external CDR/W drive, make sure that the CD that contains the file is loaded in the CDR/W drive. You may also have to plug the CDR/W drive into a wall outlet for power. If your computer has an internal CD drive, you can use it to import a file from a CD. You should also launch the Series 5 software.

·         Note: If you are using an Open device, or the DynaVox Series 5 software on a Windows computer, a Microsoft window may appear and display the contents of the file sharing device (or ask what kind of action should be taken). Close this window by selecting the Close button [X] in the top right corner (or by selecting the Cancel button, if available).

2.     Select the blue Main Menu button in the title bar.

3.     Select Setup.

4.     Select Tools Menu.

5.     Select the Page Browser button.

6.     Select the destination folder for the package files. Use one of the following methods:

·         To save the package files in an existing folder, proceed to step 7.

·         To save the package files in a new folder (for organization purposes only), proceed to step 8.

7.     Important note: If the package of pages you are importing will replace existing files, proceed to Step “8” ..if the pages are brand new to your device, proceed to Step “9”

8.     To save the package contents in an existing folder, complete this step:



1.     Select the appropriate folder in the left viewport. If the folder you want to use is a sub-folder of another folder, you must first select the expansion box (+) beside the larger folder (or double-select the folder).

2.     Proceed to step 9.

          If you are creating a new folder, complete this step:

  • Select the folder in which you want to create a new folder. If the new folder should be on the top level, scroll up to the top of the left viewport and select the Top level folder. If the new folder should be placed within an existing folder, select the appropriate folder in the left viewport.
  • Select the New Folder button at the bottom of the screen. The system keyboard will open.
  • Enter a name for the new folder.
  • Select the OK button to close the system keyboard. The new folder will be highlighted in the left viewport.
  • Proceed to step 

9.  Select the Sharing Operations button

10.Select the Import Package button

11.  Select the Show All Directories check box.

12.  In the left viewport, select the icon that represents the file sharing device that contains the file that you want to import. Typically, this is drive E:, F: or G:.

13.  To import from the hard drive of the device or Windows computer, complete this step:

·         Select the Show All Directories check box.

·         Use the left viewport to navigate to the folder that contains the package that you want to import. Select the expansion box [+] next to a folder to see the sub-folders that it contains. Select a folder to see its contents in the right viewport.

·       If you are using a dedicated device, and you are importing the package from another user on the same device, the package should be Shared folder. Select the Shared icon in the left viewport.

·       If you are using an Open device, and you are importing the package from another user on the same device, it could be in any folder outside of the C:\5100\User Files folder. To open the Shared folder (the preferred location for exported packages), select the expansion box beside the drive C: icon, then select the expansion box beside the 5100 folder, and then select the Shared folder.

o    In the right viewport, select the name of the package (pak) file you want to import.

o    Select the OK button to close the Select Package menu.

14.  You will be asked if you want to overwrite pages with conflicting names. As the package is imported, the software will check to see if any pages in the package have the same name as pages that already exist anywhere in the active user. Two different pages with the same name cannot exist within one user.

·         If you want to automatically overwrite your existing pages with pages from the package, select the Yes button.

·         If you want to look at each conflict on an individual basis, select the No button. Each time the software finds a page in the package that has the same name as an existing page you will be given three choices. You can choose to rename the existing page, not to import the conflicting page from the package, or replace the existing page with the one in the package.An hourglass icon will be displayed while the pages are being imported. This process may take a moment.

          Select the OK button when the pages have been successfully loaded.

          Select the OK button to close all of the open menus.

The contents of the package are now available.
