I remember that when I had a problem processing data in .16 and .17, when the KT was powered on it would go through the processing page until it could "digest" whatever it was trying to process. I thought maybe this was the same.

I checked the number of epubs on the sd card against the number of books the reader displays as being there minus the Kpubs on the reader, and they balance out at 525 epubs. I deleted the "Reading On" and "Welcome to Kobo" kpubs off the reader, maybe it's looking for those when I remove the reader.

I don't remember if it's been doing this since I reformatted the KT and started adding books, or if this is a new problem that has started in the past few days.

I removed the books that I put on the reader today, not only did that not change anything, but they were still registered as being on the reader, with no covers. If I clicked on the cover, it said it was locked by DRM (which it wasn't). I finally added them all back on.

I'm using a USB wall charger to charge the KT. It's one of those adapters that you plug your USB cord into, then plug the plug into the wall outlet. I've used it for the KT since I got it last August and never had an issue.

I just assumed that it was the way it "woke up" form being connected, but then I charged it from the "Continue" screen (when you plug it in and it asks you "continue" or "connect" and you choose "continue" so you can read and charge), unplugged it and it went into the "processing content" screen.

I am really really fed up with the problems I'm having with this firmware. It's the firmware because I never had these problems on .17 - I had other issues, mind you, but not this flakiness. While it's nice to hear that some of what I'm experiencing is not just me - covers coming and going, "Read On" and "Welcome to Kobo" suddenly back on front page and marked as not finished when they were, even this "processing content" problem - it's not happening to more than a few of us so I doubt that it will be addressed.

I really wish I could go back to .17, even losing my 4 pages of shelves it took me 4 days to create. While I know that I can read the books, which really *is* all that matters, these problems sucked the joy I had from the Kobo. Now I picked it up like a live grenade, hoping that nothing will cause it to "explode".
