Aah got it, not sure why but i managed to upgrade to v0.33g from v0.26n with no problem.
not tried the later firmwares just yet but not sure i'll need to as i just want epub and mobi support.
Are there other advantages to using the latest firmware? it seems font wise i'm stuck with only the original two serif fonts from the info on here but i can live with that.

The instructions describe how to go from "g" to "m"

The current firmware is using an up to date version of the Adobe Reader Mobile software
to read .epub and .pdf, that includes support for B&N DRM and PDF reflow. With this any
fonts embedded in the .epub will be used in preference to the system fonts.

Luck;
Ken

Cheers Ken, so it looks like there is an advantage to doing the full update, excellent.
I will try the full update when i have time,thankyou for the advice, forums like this are great when it comes to finding help with old but still very useable tech.
I hate shelling out for the latest tech and managed to get this reader on Ebay for £20!

I can't figure out what version of the software I have in a new Jetbook Color. One would assume that it's the most recent since I just got it via USPS today, but under Firmware Version in Device Info it says
Platform Version: 53.37.509
r1818 Spanish

That doesn't conform to any of the update versions listed which go up to 49. How do I figure out which version I actually have?

[Update: Oh never mind. I read down a bit further and 53 is the latest version so I'm good to go. Can't wait to get going!]

I just updated the firmware on the wifes older JB lite using the instructions I found here. It worked just fine. I was frustrated as all get out tryng to do it using the instructions on the ectaco website. That way simply does not work. Thanks much to the folks who did the research and posted it!
