Baca,
I'm sorry you've had those troubles. I haven't had unusual issues with mine (also Christmas gift). When I tried to view a YouTube video I got a message that made sense at the time, and I understood it wasn't possible -- however, I then read here that there may be an app for viewing YouTube with it. So, there may be hope. The books worked just find for me, however, the 100 pre-loaded books were not obvious at first. It said they were pre-loaded, so I refused to look elsewhere but In the PDN. Eventually, after just toying with it, I managed to get them to show. I believe it was just a matter of clicking the B&N icon, then "My Library" and then in the drop-down menu under both "Title" and "Author" is an option for "Local." I think that's what finally got them to show up. I’m sorry -- I do hope this is helping, because finding some of these commands is one of those things that is so completely reflexive and understood at this point -- not at the start, mind you -- but they are now, and on the up-side, it is less than 2 weeks later. And I no longer think about most of them.

I am not super knowledgeable about apps, or even the Android system, but I have discovered enough “just by fiddling with it” that I have the books I want with their book covers visible (including those I made myself), my personal wallpaper, and my playlists of mp3's for when I'm reading.

If I can help, you can message me using the options at my profile here. But others likely know 10 times more.

I had a major question about file name standards, but got tired of waiting and just loaded many of my books anyway. Unfortunately, I have to completely ignore the *Title* and *Author* sort, as they don't work unless one understands how the unit identifies them. So, I had a choice: Default my file names to Title-Author or Author last name-Title. I went with the latter, as I can sort books by the same author at least.

Anyhow, it is doing what I want it to. I know it can do a bit more and in time I suspect we will get there. To that end, this forum is a big help.

NOTE: Be sure you know which update you need from that link that Colina included. I went there just now and (unless I am completely misunderstanding the info) it shows something like 4 different PDN eReaders and the Firmware updates noted on that page are for only 2 of them. The 7" US model in White and the one in Black. I have the 7" Black 4GB from QVC and therefore I am not using the update noted on that page. But, that is based only on how I understood the info presented. I could be wrong. And if you don't have the 7" one with 4GB from QVC or the 9", then you can probably use one of those updates on the page.
