Hi frustrated e readers. today I had the same problem as this person, Im away from home and nearly cried when my christmas present started mucking me around. I had simply charged the unit up overnight off my laptop. Went to read something when I was away from home but instead I got a protected by digital rights management screen, no access to the books.
I did a quick google serach and ended up here. Unfortunatly I really did not get a solution from the folks here.
So I ended up doing a 'soft reset' - put a pin in the reset button on the base of the unit while the thing's asleep. Then re awaken the ereader and hay presto I could access my books again.
It seems this problem is a bit of a glitch with these devices.
So dont stamp on it or throw it at a wall like I wanted to.
