Another cool feature of The Egg is the ability to easily import content directly from most devices (USB stick, Android phones, iphones, SLR cameras, GoPro cameras, etc.) to your Egg! To begin, simply turn on The Egg and connect the USB cable of your device into your Egg, and plug the other end into your device. CAUTION : The Egg will import all files with valid extensions like .jpg, .png, mp4, .pdf, etc. that exist on the device. If you don't want to import everything, transfer to a USB stick only the content that you want to transfer and then plug this into the USB slot of the Egg.

Step 1 | connect via usb

Step 3 | prepping for file transfer

After pressing All or One the display will return to the main gallery page, with a bar at the top that says Scanning as it scans your device to prepare for file transfer

step 4 | completion

After you import photos and videos onto The Egg it uses a lot of CPU power to ‘process’ this content to make it easier to stream over the internet. The Egg may get warmer than usual while it processes the content.

That's it! Press OK after the importing has completed!
