Weird problem

Last night I put my Kobo Touch on sleep mode and when I went to use it again after a few hours the power was of and it had only 21 books on it when I put it on sleep mode it had about 250 books on it
Also before that I wasn't able to sync it... it just stayed on syncing the first book

Do you have a Micro SD card installed? If so, the reader may have lost track of the fact that it's there. Pop it out and put it back in, and see if that brings back your books.

Nope, no micro SD, no sideloaded books, just Kobo books
I'm attempting a factory reset now

I had a similar problem today. I just finished reading a book and had put the kobo away. At some moment, I registered a movement from the corner of my eye: The kobo had switched from the standby screen (cover of the next book in the carousel) to the carousel, only the carousel was half empty and many of the loaded books were nowhere to be seen.

Calibre has an error communicating with the device.

I was on 1.9.17 and I am now reading up on what the last firmware is all about. Then I may take the risk of upgrading and going through the hassle of setting everything up again (good bye, reading statistics, I hardly looked at you anyway in the last months).

Did you perchance keep your reader near a radiation source like microwave or loudspeakers or something ? Those things are unfortunately fragile.

I have NEVER had anything like this effect my ereaders/phones/tablets. Just one of the urban myths I suspect.

Completely agree, absolute myth.

It's more likely to be a case of a midly corrupt filesystem caused by not ejecting the ereader from the PC before pulling your USB cable out. Try connecting to your PC, right-clicking on it's drive, going into Properties, Tools & using 'Check for Errors'

Doesn't even have to be because of something you've done. DOS/Windows/FAT seems to occasional problems no matter how careful you are. Yes, definitely check the file system periodically.

I beg to disagree, electromagnetic waves are no myth, they are a scientific reality. If you don't believe me, put your reader in the microwave oven for a couple minutes, then enjoy reading on it ...

Yeah, and with it the start of the so called jolly season. Well I hope I'll be able to enjoy a good book during these lonely and cold winter nights ...

In deed. I put the spekers for my stereo on either side of the microwave and played Metallica's black album at full volume, put my Kobo in the microwave and turned it on.

Sure enough, with a puff of green smoke the microwave stopped working and the Metallica was replaced with Perry Como.

Now how am I going to rock out while I eat my popcorn???
