Any suggestions?
Please hold on. We just changed the links. Will be available as soon as possible. Updated!

Thanks guys. All went smoothly.

My two wishes for ADE were granted -- choice of six font sizes and right-hand page numbers are small enough to be insignificant.

Sorry, is this another new firmware? Should I reflash again?

Nah, it's okay. We just changed the compression for the 360°. There was a problem with the 301 (older hardware) and that firmware was rectified.

No.. My 505 has a slower CPU and it opens ePub with DRM without an issue. So it's just a bug in the firmware. Nothing wrong with the CPU.

Jon is right. There shouldn't be a difference between drmed and free ePub opening times.

Just for the record - 1min and 2 seconds for adobeviewer to open a 365 pages book bought from ebooks.com. At least gives me a time to prepare a coffee.
The fbreader opens the LOTR for less than 10 seconds.

Oh my. That is NOT normal. But maybe the epub code is bad. That can slow down opening times.

Everyone familiar with manga and comics knows the expression fanservice, as when certain content is added to a comic or manga only in order to cater to their audience. However, I had not ever imagined I'd be coining the expression for actual customer support and service. It's about time.

I've been kindly approached by a GfK in order to hand my translation. I'd be glad to do so in the future ^^. Big Kudos for you all!

How can I tell? I paid 15 bucks for it. Once opened it seems ok.

It may not necessarily be bad code; just stupid production values.
Never mind the page count: what's the file size? I've generally found file size to be the best predictor of load times. Anything over 1MB is going to take time enough to be noticeable and anything over 2MB will make you wonder if its hung-up. (Which, so far, has never happened to me. But I *have seen load times of 5-plus minutes.)

The ePub standard allows a lot of crap to be designated as mandatory and bundled in to the file; graphics, hardwired formatting, fonts... You can even have an ebook that is nothing but scanned images. (Basically they did their best to turn an HTML/XML based format into a PDF.)

eBook-savvy publishers know to ignore all that optional stuff and use good web/page layout practices. Others... don't. So some epubs (and commercial ones are the worst offenders) are bloated with junk.

645 kB - it doesn't seem so much. I tried another epub, no drm, 311 kB - less than 5 seconds to load.
