The SD card is not much of a worry, compared to the Conficker worm that was present in the system memory of the PP. This could be a very bad thing to someone with less PC security. Bad on Astak, and worse on anyone who is not diligent regarding software security.
I will immediately check on this Conficker worm. I will have the tech check everything.
We do tell everyone in the User Manual and the FAQ sheet (www.theEZreader.com/html
under "support" to PLEASE keep their SD card when they send it back for repair or replace. I have also said that about 50 times on various threads but I know it is hard to read every thread and do not blame you a bit. We have no way to keep track of SD cards here. Any that we do receive get thrown away. I am sorry for your loss; but please understand we do TRY hard to get people to be forewarned.
I have no reason for why the spare battery was included. Are you positive it is a spare? Sometimes mailing regulations make us send the battery out of the device. Sometimes the factory ships them with the battery out due to China regulations which change every time.
I AM glad that at least you are back up and reading!!
