Aztak EZ Reader Question

Greetings all - new member here.

I've acquired an Astak EZ Reader (Hanlin V3), and am interested in about if some body would give me some advice .

Actually I'm very happy with my new device, but few "buts" is usually.

1. Pages are turning very slow. It takes 10-15 sec before new page comes up.
2. When I finished read the book it's no way do delete. I need to open PC, connect the E-book and manually delete the book.

3. Also is very slow process when open up the book. Looks like it takes two mins before book is open


Thanks in advance,

M

Hello and welcome, Mashen'ka

I'm afraid that there's no way to delete the ebooks without a computer. In fact, the Sony PRS-505 had this same defect until they released the last firmware.

Your reader is way too slow. Mine opens a new book in 7-9 seconds and turns page in 1 second, aprox. I'm talking about a "normal" fb2 book (1, 2... 3 MBytes at most).

Regards,

L.

I have to agree with leandroide. Your reader is much slower than mine. Having said that, I just recently flashed the OpenInkPot firmware for mine. It has some nicer capabilities and with the latest update, you can delete books from the reader. You can download it here. You may want to gain more familiarity with your reader before you try this.

OpenInkPot for dummies

Hello,
Thanks for your advice.


Here is the place where I don't know what to do at all.
Went to the OpenInkPot and did not understand at all.
Instruction doesn't mean anytning to me yet.
To much files there.
Would some body give exactly instraction which file i should use
It's so many out there and I'm lost.

Which one for my Aztac/Astac could fit.
Do I need use SD card ? or i could use PC and transfer from PC to e-book
Do I need download all files?
So those questions coming in to my head and i can't answer it.
Thanks in advance

MZ
