How do I update my KidiBuzz using a microSD card?

You can update the KidiBuzz system without connecting the device to the Internet. Follow these instructions to manually update your KidiBuzz system by using a microSD card.

Note: Screenshots and product images in this tutorial may look different depending on your KidiBuzz version.

Preparing the microSD Card

Download the system update file

Note: This system update package is suitable for use with US / CA English KidiBuzz devices only. The system update will install the US English language version of the operating system.

Insert an empty microSD card into your computer, or insert the card into a card reader that’s connected to your computer. (We recommend that you format the card first). Create a new folder called "DigiGoMaxOTA" in the root of the microSD card. Then, copy the downloaded file into this folder by dragging it over from your computer.

Note: The folder name is case-sensitive, so please check that capitlization is correct

Remove the microSD card when you’re done.
