I have Vista Home Premium (32bit) and newest model with build 834 firmware. AFAIK build 834 is not known for any new/special bugs...

By following these simple rules I've avoided freezes and such (for all builds):

- just use mobipocket files (you can easily convert PDF, HTML, TXT and DOC to PRC by drag&drop to Mobipocket Reader apps library).

- always manually turn off the reader (displaying a page uses nearly to nothing)

- use no pre-installed, but one of the freely available fonts (lots of recommendations in the forum - I use Goudita Sans SF)

BTW: My CyBook is shown as CyBook in Explorer, but otherwise the unit and the SD card are both just drives. For safe removal of USB drives this tool is useful: USB Disk Ejector
