I do use a CF card, although I don't think I need it. I am just judging by the battery meter icon, and guessing that I am getting about 15 - 20 hours out of the batteries. Is there something I can do to see if everything is working properly? Can I request a reading while in the shell?
And, I have another problem. I follow the instructions for installation of FBReader. The program seems to execute, but I find nothing in the Program folder when it finishes. Should the Program folder be on the device's main memory and not on the CF card?
Thanks again for all your trouble.
