Slipping out of its Cover....

Hi Cybook Owners...
I've read the various threads concerned with various methods, many of them ingenious, about ways and means long, tall, short, medium, straight and curved, about covers for the Cybook Gen3. In fact I was very much in favour of buying a nice cover for my friend before the arrival of the machine.

I found, however, that it arrived with a good leather cover with suited my purposes admirably: and a bonus was that I also happened to have a canvas cash bag to hand, bought when I was in Southern India, for 107 Rupess (about one pound fifty pence!) into which the whole thing goes as a perfect snug.

So far so good.

When fitting the Cybook into its new shoe, I found it was a tight squeeze; however with a little use it has snugged in well and seems to be very happy there. However, it seems that now, from time to time, the book is slipping out of its shoe, even when the cover is closed.

Not such good news, as I don't want it falling out. Looking there, I see we have a tight squeeze: even a wee bit of velcro attached to the side of the book would increase the thickness I feel. A small metal clip placed over the upper left portion might do the trick. Mmm not sure.

If anyone has had this "issue" (as they keep saying these days) and have found a nifty fix, please, I'd love to know.

Kind regards

John

On the bottom left of your Cybook, there is a little hole to fix a wristband or similar, it can be used attatch the Cybook to the cover with a cord.

Thanks very much for this useful information. I used a plastic coated paperclip, which also should serve to reset my machine, which crashes approximately twice a week.

Or just a very small bit of double sided velcro tape. Won't take much or you'll never release it

I had considered doing that.
As a by-thought, you'd have thought they'd've put the reset hole in a more accessible place.

mmm.... I'm afraid I'd have no idea whether it were intact or not... or for that matter how to do a CHKDSK ! Could you, errr, me?

I've been reading Dickens's Bleak House, which is hardly a minor tome, and wonder whether that could have implicated it somewhat...?

regards

Go to "User CP" in the blue box, then "edit signature." Type whatever you want to carry along in the signature box.




Quiz Time: Who can you find the link to your visitor profile message center?


Answer: It's the tiny gray "your profile" link under the top blue link in your CP page, virtually invisible. Don't ask me why.

If your computer is running windows (vista) then it's simple.
Just mount your Cybook through the USB-cable. Your Cybook should become visible as a new device (for me it's called Cybook Gen3 (L: ), but it could be another drive-letter for you).
Just right-click on the drive. Select Properties then select 'extra' (or Tools in XP) and choose the option ' Check Now'.

Sorry, but I seldom get an opportunity to help out on the Cybook threads, so I just jumped in there.
