Image transfer from sd card to phone

I use DSLRs for most of my photography, one of my cameras does not have wifi, so I bought the i-flashdevice HD card reader to transfer images to my Samsung a20e.

Unfortunatley the device has no instructions! I understand that an app is not required? 

Any assistance with this issue would be greatly appreiated

 

Thanks

Hi Andrew

Once again many thanks

@macabee: If you're connecting the i-flashdevice HD card reader via USB, swipe from the top of your A20e screen to the bottom and look for a notification that says 'USB for file transfer'. If it's there, tap on it to bring up a list of available USB options and select 'Transfer Files' or 'Transfer Images' if the first option doesn't work. If the above isn't applicable, I recommend reaching out to the manufacturer of the card reader, to enquire about the necessary steps for connecting to, and transferring files to, Android devices.

@macabee: Ah ok, so the option was in your drop down notification panel, but wasn't immediately visible due to the other notifications in the list?
