Yep, still having the problem. Dang it. I am about 25% through a Stieg Larsson novel but now I'll have to quit and send it back for repair -- that is, if it's possible to repair it. If not I want my money back and I'll go back to paper books.

...more on the "Move to Folder" bug

The "problem": I get an an error message when I move books within the device. For example, I'll move a book from my "To Read" folder to a main genre folder. When I select (press OK button) where I want the book to go, I get an error message at the bottom of the screen that says, "Cannot move file."

Well, the message is lying.

The file moves fine and is accessible [in the new folder] whether from the PB360 or from my computer. It is also gone from the original folder from which I moved it.

So, there is nothing wrong with the operation as it works fine. Just maybe need to change the message wording ... ?
I would like to expand on Mickey's v15.2 bug.

I tried to move multiple files between folders using the sequence [File] - [Mark Group] - "mark multiple files" - [Move to Folder].

I also got the error message "Cannot move file", but in this case it wasn't lying, because only one of the files was moved. Luckily no damage was done. I just had to tediously move the files one by one, ignoring the error message each time.

The [File] - [Mark Group] - "mark multiple files" seems to work OK with options such as [Delete] and [Mark as read]

I've updated my Pocketbook 302 with the 15.2 (1-jun-2010) firmware. After restarting the device the firmware version (in the about screen) showed the correct version.

However after the next powerdown/powerup the device went into a continuous reboot cycle. I.e. after a few seconds in the main screen the reader restarts itself.

I've managed to reinstall a 15.1 firmware after which the device acts normally again. I'm hoping the next firmware release will be more stable.

Same thing here with me, jackie_w. It seems to only move the last book you have checked in a group.

Which is okay in my case, because I only tried to move them to test your further ID of the problem...

Sorry I missed that - I had run through a bunch of "move" actions before I posted this - thought I had tested all options. Guess the PB360 doesn't lie about some of the "can't move" stuff... Good catch & thanks for keeping me straight!

Do u have a SD Card installed. Reboots are often the cause when the SD Card is too "slow".
Normally the 15.2 should be faster and more stable than the 15.1

At the beginning of a chapter only the chapter title ist selectable, none of the other words of the same page.
Within the chapter the first and the last word of each paragraph is not selectable with the cursor.

Even without the (supplied 4 Gb) SD card the reader went into the reboot loop.

Yes, sounds about right. But: Please do a full backup of your reader before doing the hard reset.

You can do that by:

Plug on your reader
Turn your device on
Hold both upper buttons
Wait
Then wait some more
Done!

Thanks for the tips.
For now the downgraded firmware (15.1) works fine.
I'll wait for version 15.3 before attempting an new firmware update.

15.2 for 360° is still in beta, so there's still hope!

I've just upgrade PB360 from 15.1 to 15.2 Final version. (Jun 14)
Dual-booting is gone! My PB actually load the last page I read as it be set.
For now, I've never found any crash since upgraded.

UPDATE: I just got it crash first time after I've upgraded it 3 days ago.

In my PB 302, I have mapped the lower right key to move forward and lower left key to move backward. When I view a pdf (by pdfviewer) in portrait mode and zoom to fit width, almost 3/4th of the document is shown in a view, pressing lower right key is not moving forward to show the balance 1/4 of the page instead it goes to next page. Same is with lower left key, it goes to previous page starting and not moving backward.

I do not face this problem in landscape orientation with any zoom setting. Also in portrait mode and with zoom 200% or more, we do not have this problem.

Is this a bug? Can this be solved in next release of the firmware?

Yes this bug is already known.it seems only to raise its ugly head in pdfviewer. Try Adobeviewer to circumvent. Sure this will be solved.
