reb 1100/1150 - need help!

hi!

i am new to this forum - did an intro in the intro forum. long and short of it is that i am determined to get my reb 1100 - which was upgraded to an 1150 up and running again! i have been looking all over this forum and the net to find recent information regarding transferring files to reb with win7, etc but i am a tad confused

i have found ways to convert files to the proper format.. the problem?

i am not sure that the reader is going to even connect with my computer!

i have a win7 64 bit machine. i have the usb cable enroute via ebay and a smartmedia card enroute via ebay

i recently downloaded the driver off breeno.org and i also downloaded a demo/eval of geb ebook librarian

will i be able to put books on my reader? am i missing any steps or relevant information?

thanks!!!

You should be able to put eBooks on the smartmedia card even if you can't directly hook to the device. Hopefully you will be able to hook to the device and have both options. Be sure and read our wiki. There is lots of data there as well as the eBookwise forum.

I still have my reb 1100. I have rocket library and the geb library, running on windows xp. You may have to set these programs to operate "backward compatable". Hit Start, bring up program icon, right click on icon, select properties and it should bring you to the point to set compatability---I set my run as it ran on windows 95. books are hard to find, drm files cant be converted to read on my device; i can't convert epub or pdf to rb files .
