I inserted the 4 GB class 2 Lexar SD card into the Glo and had the same issues: non-responsive to page turns, reboot after several dead taps on the non-responsive book, and reboots when attempting to open a book from the book list that was not among the five books displayed on the home page.

I tried a factory reset, but it did not fix this issue.

What did fix it, on both cards, was reformatting the cards (fat32). After reformatting the cards I did a sync without the cards, inserted the card, and then transferred my books (I used calibre and transferred my 32 books in two batches).

I am confident enough to recommend trying this. How to prevent it from happening, is another issue. From what I can tell, using a new sd card, or a freshly formatted sd card, should work, Pulling a card from my older reader and inserting it into the Glo did not, but that may have been an anomaly.
Hey I did that as well. I took to reformating the card. But then it still happened. So I tried your suggestion, which was to transfer to the main memory of the unit..... result was the same, reboot hell. I did notice that this reboot happened with a purchased book, "THE FOURTH AWAKENING" and I purchased it from kobo for a decent price. Not sure what to say, but I am going to make an edcuated guess to the cause. I think its the glo light that is at fault here. Specifically due to the magnetic switching off. By that not the physical act of the magnet doing its thing, but the software waiting for the indication of the act of closing the cover ( usually detected by a reed switch, may not be the case for TG).

Ugh Gonna have to wait for a result from Kobo, But for now I am going to eperiment using the sleep button only not the sleep cover method.
