How do I link Dropbox?

Go to Settings screen > turn Link Dropbox ON. Follow the prompts to connect your Dropbox account.

Once Dropbox is linked, navigate to Music Folders screen in Orpheus, and you will now be able to add folders stored in your Dropbox.

Important note: Leave the Dropbox Sync ON in Settings. If you turn it off, it will unlink, and you will no longer be able to access files stored in Dropbox.

Any files you add, edit or delete within the connected Dropbox folder will be reflected in Orpheus.

I’m having trouble figuring out where to find my music in Dropbox when I’m in Orpheus. I have Dropbox turned on and I know the music is in there. I have all the folders enabled that would be obvious to contain a certain chart but having trouble finding music that is in Dropbox. There is SD card storage and device storage. I’m sort of mixed up with all this.

Hi Dave, if you are using Dropbox, then your files are coming from Dropbox in whatever folder you put them in. Go to Dropbox.com and login to explore your Dropbox file structure. If you are not using Dropbox, but instead chose to import local folders of music (music stored locally, on your tablet itself) then I’d suggest you grab a file manager app or plug your tablet into your computer so you can navigate the file structure visually in a way you’re comfortable with. You may also find it helpful to read some articles regarding file management on Android such as this or this.
