Very new to this. I inserted the Micro SD card. The slot is in the side for a 912 Pro you do not need to take the cover of like it shows in the video.

I can access the SD as drive L on my PC and copy and take files of it. The Firmware update says to copy it to the Micro SD card. But if the old Firmware is on the internal storage (SD Pocket book Drive) does that not have to be removed first?

Many thanks for any help you can give!

Actually tha SD card supersedes the internal memory, but to be on the safe I'd remove the file "SWUPDATE.BIN" from the internal memory

Thanks for that. I did the firmware update but all the the files like Audio and Photo are still on the Internal Storage. Can I just copy these to the SD and remove everything on the Internal Storage?

Files are - and will stay where you put them. Storing them on the SD card is intended (that's why they built it in). If you leave them on internal and copy them to the SD card they'll show up as two files.

Maybe I did not phrase that well, I should have said folders not files. Should I remove everything from internal storage? Currently all the folders are on internal storage so the SD drive is empty apart from the firmware update files.

If I cut and paste all the system folders like Audio etc to the SD drive will the operating system be happy with that?

Thanks again without this help I would be stuck!

I'd leave the folder-structure on the device unharmed and just cut the files. If you remove folders you'll might find out there was something vital just too late
On the SD card you can do whatever you like. You can build a folder structure to your own liking or just pile all your files in the root directory. The audioplayer will pick them up regardless of any structure as will the library.

Ok working well. Couple of issues, when I conect to my PC I have to connect the Pocketbook twice, first time it says it cannot recognise, second time it is happy. Also I made a directory called Audio and put mp3 files in it, accessing from Library it shows no files. There is a Music section on startup but not sure how to put anything in there as there is no Music folder, just like there is no Library folder. I can just play audio and the files come up so not a big issue.

Next is the Wifi connection, but happy as I am for now.

Happens sometimes, not only with your device. Nobody knows why

Normal behavior, It's no book-file, so doesn't show up.

You can access your folder structure if you go via "Application -> Photo (no kidding) -> from ther you can access parts of the folder Structure on internal memory or SD card. "Music" on startup is the audio-player-app,unfortunately it only plays audio titles as they come or random

You can put work on that, but it's not really worth the effort. Maybe you'll have problems trying to access
- hidden networks
- special signs in the SSID-name
- various channels (don't know which)

Hello,

I just got my PB912PRO and installed the latest firmware, 2.1.3
http://download.pocketbook-int.com/f...1.3_0_user.zip
qorganizer and pbanki, but both apps don't seem to work.
Could it be because the firmware is to new? Reading in the forums it seems that the one everyone refers to is 2.1.2
Cheers

I am pretty sure the 912 did not exist at the time of the 2.1.1. I should have the image for my 903, let me know if you are interested and I'll dig it up.

It is so, because the only difference between 2.1.2 and 2.1.3 is:

Obreey Sync – application for content synchronization between Obreey Store (www.store.obreey.com) and Device.

I think it was done through homepage change in www browser. And for most users there is no reason to upgrade from 2.1.2 to 2.1.3.
