I just can't give up the library that I have, OR THE BACK LIGHT. I am sure others may feel the same. Or, I could be wrong. HA HA! But any way thanks for the input.
It is all relative to the amount of effort you wish to dedicate to convert .rb to .imp. Check the RB
Wiki for programs that "burst" a .rb into its .html, image and .info components. These could then be converted manually, one at a time, or you can use RB2Project from ETI (manufacturer of the EBW 1150 or ETI-2) from the dos prompt/command line to gear up for large scale batch converting of .rb to .imp.
This all assumes that your .rb ebooks are unencrypted. If not, then its a moot point as you cannot ever migrate them to another reader!
BTW, the 1150 also has a BACK LIGHT.
Have a look at the Mobileread Wiki pages on the REB 1100
, Rocket eBook
, and eBookwise-1150
for more information about their similarities (and differences).
