Frequently Asked Questions:
i) How many tunes can be uploaded?
The internal memory is set at a minimum of 4GB or 'far more than you probably need'. Obviously the length of individual songs, and the file format has an influence on the capacity but typically this can be 1500 - 2000 songs (over three days worth of continual play, which then loops back to the beginning). To some extent this is an academic question since most people with dementia are more than happy with a much smaller song list of say 25 to 40 familiar tunes.
ii) What if my computer doesn't recognize it as a device?
Blaney should be 'off' before you plug the USB cable in. Then plug in your computer and only after you've made this physical connection, squeeze his paw to switch the power back on. 'Blaney' decides at power up if he is just a player, or a USB device, so just plugging the cable in does nothing.
iii) Can I use Apple devices?
'Yes', via a standard USB cable. Upload the .m4a file format directly from iTunes (Please note that it is not an Apple device so it cannot play 'Apple protected' .m4p downloads).
iv) What other forms of music can I upload?
.mp3 "MP3 format sound"
.m4a "MPEG4 Audio"
.wma "Windows Media Audio"
.aac "ADTS Audio"
.wav "WAVE sound"
