The question is, is this a problem with pocketbooks or should I think about sending it back ?
I get the impression from this forum that this is not uncommon, but I cannot find any more quantitative impression.
I would like some simple feedback - yes I have to plug/unplug or no, it just connects reliably every time I plug in the USB cable.
The firmware is the latest, 2.1.3.
This is really irritating. Otherwise, it is a fascinating device. A bizarre mixture of the cute with the truly terrible. For the reasonable price, I quite like it.
are you on windows? This is driving me crazy, too (I am on windows) since the last update - I hope the new firmware solves the issues, but from what I can gather from the ukranian forum, it is a firmware related (not device related) issue.
