I'd like to be able to use the Cybook while it is charging ! Right now, you can't see the content of the Cybook when it's connected to your computer or the usb charger...

They should be able to tell the difference between charging and computer hookup. While hooked to a computer it might be ok to dedicate it to downloads, etc. but when hooked to an external charger you should be able to use it. It might also be able to speed up the charging a bit when charging from a regular charger instead of the computer. iPods can do this.

As a test, someone should try this (I don't know the Mac equivalent):
Plug Cybook into computer USB port.
Click on icon to "Safely Remove Hardware" and select Cybook.
Leave Cybook plugged in.
Does this do anything different than usual, like allow you to read while plugged in? What about if you press the "Menu" key after trying the above?

Wouldn't work. The Gen3 displays its "USB" screen even when the dumb USB wall charger is plugged in.

It would be nice to have the SDK but if not I'll settle for a Sudoku game added to the Firmware :-)
Great to hear they're gonna add 1/4 page and 1/2 page for PDF view !

Well, it may not work. We won't really know until someone tries it. Using the wall charger is not the same as charging from a PC. On the PC, there are two issues involved - connecting and charging.

The reason I asked someone to try this is that I have seen other peripherals act differently when plugged into a PC vs a wall charger.

Harry's right, it doesn't work. At least not on my linux box.

I NEED an author name index, as well as folders. These are essential to organizing my collection.

I would love to see:
  • ability to managed books in folders, by author, title ... you name it
  • text search inside a book (including, of course, an on screen keyboard)
  • continue reading where I last was before turning off the Cybook

I would like the current position in a book to be saved when the unit is shutting down due to low battery.

That's easy. I create books to read from a whole variety of different sources. Without spending obscenet amounts of time carefully crafting each book, setting author details and titles etc, it would be just soooo much easier, if I could ditch the icon view and have a plain list view.

Granted, like many people I have a LOT of books, I read all the time so folders would be useful too, or at least genres or some way of categorising books to make selecting easier.

I noticed that you can put books in folders and they will actually show up in the library. You have to start the name with . to hide them. And the sorting option "folders" works so I assume you can create a folder aaaa and put the books you want to show up first in the library in this folder.

Folder level filtering

What I would like to see is folders appear in the library and when clicked opens the folder and just show whats in that folder. I organize by Genre then Author, then loose books and series folders in the author folder. If there is a universe with several series that has another folder.

Speaking of the fact that files with a . are hidden on Linux (and Unix in general) : I would like the none book files (*.dat , etc) to have a dot in front of their filenames so that they are hidden unless you need them.
