View Full Version : PRS-500 Speed of changing to/from USB transfer mode

08-30-2007, 02:16 AM

In my Reader now,
after i plug USB to Reader, it takes 10 seconds to display "connected" icon.
after i plug USB off, it takes 20 seconds to display "busy" icon, then 7 seconds to display menu. 109 books so far.

I flashed last firmware and some hacks (flashed Reader maybe 10 times altogether)

I feel when this Reader has had its original first firmware, these times were 5 and 10. Or maybe i just forgot...

What are your times (and firmwares/hacks)?

patched (clock, joystick) 21081 firmware:
- 10 seconds "to"
- 12 seconds "from" plus several seconds to update (depends on the number of books in the reader).

The times seem about like they always have been depending upon how many books are on the Reader and how many of those are new.

i updated my post a little, 20 second to "busy" icon and then 7 seconds to display menu. 109 books in reader.

I hadn't noticed a difference, so either it's pretty close to what it was, or I don't connect to the PC all that often. :grin:
