3 problems with Alex

a.) It doesn't show in ADE. I can access the SD card though, it's not a windows/driver problem.
b.) Might be directly related with a.): When reading, I don't see the book covers on the LCD screen. I've only got the symbol (ePUB, PDF, ...) but not the book cover like the user guide shows.
c.) In ePUBs you can change the font size, but in PDFs I can't? Wouldn't have expected that. I can zoom into the LCD, but I can't change the font on the actual reading area?

EDIT: Thanks to the support of Spring Design, problem b.) is solved: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...&postcount=506

Mine doesn't show up on the sidebar in ADE, either, not like my Nook did. But then, my Sony 300 doesn't show up in ADE either, and I can still drag and drop books from the ADE documents folder to the Sony and the Alex and read them just fine.

I did see the cover in the LCD for the book I downloaded from Gutenberg, but not the ones I bought from Kobo. Maybe that's an issue with the ebook files.

Hmm, each of my Sonys (including Sony 300) did show in ADE. Now I'm using Sony's eBook library software, but before ADE was working fine.

Regarding (b), I have the same. Doesn't bother me. I don't look at the book cover when I'm reading paper books.

Regarding (c), I noticed that too. I think there is a way to transform PDF files to epub version? Haven't tried it yet.

Regarding (a), I responded to one of your posts on another thread:

You can convert to ePUB, of course. But that's not what I prefer.
And usually, PDF is horrible as a source format.
I'd like to see zoom and reflow on Alex for PDFs, like most of the other readers do. Or at least one of it (zoom or reflow).

I thought I got "The Moonstone" out of Gutenberg, but when I tried to download that version into ADE I didn't recognize the cover. I checked Google Books, and one of the versions has the cover I've got on my Alex:

I believe these issues have been solved with the firmware update for 1.5
