What's wrong with my dad's kobo?

Grrrr. This is why I told stepmom to buy him a Libre

Anyway, received the following email from my dad:

I appear to be having some problems with Kobo. I can't open the icon - it says there is an application error and it won't open. If I go to the Kobo web site and try to access my account (do I even have an account?) I get "no such account" with all three of my possible emails. The ereader itself seems to be working okay although it suddenly froze on me today. When I upgraded the software, per their website, it appears to have moved all the books on file into the recycle bin - is that because their format changed? Anyway, very confusing. What do you suggest?

Ummmm...I *suggest* that Kobo dispense with this ridiculous 'I'm reading etc.' file system and just let people drag and drop files like every other device I own, but this won't help my dad He has not yet ventured beyond Project Gutenberg and the 100 freebies but I think I did set up an account for him when I set the kobo up for him. Advice?
