So I added 8 more items, a mixture of mobi and epub. Now I have 19 items on it. Seems to be fine.

So the trick is to load 10 books on at a time. And pray.
Which is bullshit, but I have already sold my Kindle, so I'm stuck.

*sigh* 4500 books, 10 books at a time with disconnections in between so the Glo can assess whats in memory. Terrific.
I think your problem might lie with the MOBIs. I don't believe they are supported anymore with the Glo, and support with the Touch was spotty. If I have a weird problem with recent sideloads, I check to see if I loaded a MOBI, DJVU, or some other unsupported file format on by mistake, and quite often, I have. Deleting the file and power-cycling usually takes care of it.

You can always convert your MOBI files to EPUBs, you know.
