I don't have mini. A few ways to fix USB device problems like yours (a computer identifies it, but can't access it.) One way, go to device manager, remove your device. If your computer want to install driver for it, say no, restart computer; plug in your device, let computer install it. Second way, plug in your device through a powered Hub. (I know, it worked before either direct plug in, or through a passive Hub. But sometimes it will work.) Third way, go to device manager, remove all of your USB related items. Restart, let your computer find all other USB device, then plug in the mini. (If some USB drivers were corrupted, this should fix it.)

I had a reader die like that.
I got flexed in my pocket during boarding in an absurdly cramped plane.

Thanks for posting this info, erebus, it got my Pyrus Mini working again

I had tried it before, but on a Windows XP pc. Your advice about using Windows 7 was very helpful.

I'm sorry but I'm not an expert.
Thanks in advance.

Just run the update.exe file and it will download the image file you are looking for!

Love Pyrus Mini

I've had eleven different Ebook readers over the years.

Pyrus mini is rather primitive compared to some, generic. But the size comes in handy. My big hands were a bit cramped at first finding the keys but finally found my best grip.

Is saying "it works" praise? I can put it in my shirt pocket, pull it out discreetly on the job -- never had a job yet that didn't have some downtime even if fleeting. I'm night man when downtime happens it drags ... this makes my life easier.

One drawback is the difficulty of the firmware upgrade. I bricked and unbricked the machine as a couple of others here have. The link to the more detailed instructions were a lifesaver.

Epub obviously is ubiquitous. The oddities of it's formatting can be overcome ... getting Serif typeface and paragraph indentations is possible but you get used to the default style and it's the most readable so I gave up on fiddling with it.

Do I need to say more? Not for everyone but terrific for the odd man out.

Thanks for your help.
