At least you arrive in the library with the book you've last read highlighted. So all it takes is another push of the button and you're right were you left off before.

Pretty sure. The controller in the Gen3 doesn't support SDHC cards.

There are some non-SDHC cards in the 4Gig category. It might be possible to support those devices but I believe your are correct, no SDHC.

The whole purpose of SDHC was to expand the size of SD cards over 2GB. That definition itself implies that there are no non-SDHC 4GB cards.

Also, this isn't something that could be fixed in a firmware update. This is just them using old chinese hardware to save a few cents per unit.

Yes, there are. I own a miniSD one, and they are not hard to find. The theoretical maximum size of non-HC (mini)SD cards is 4GB, not 2.

I tried it in my Cybook, and it works fine when connected to my PC (as a USB disk). I can read and write to it and it shows up with the correct size and free space.

However, the Cybook *software* does not recognize it at all. The standard directories are not created and files on it do not show up in the library.

> Also, this isn't something that could be fixed in a firmware update.

Well, I think it is. If it is physically capable of reading and writing them, and my experience shows that it is, the rest is software.

SDHC support is something else again. I tried an 8GB SDHC card, and it choked on it; it hung at the boot screen.

Regards,

Marco.

I would like to see support for
1) more mobipocket reader navigation features, e.g., inter-document hyperlinks and support for javascript drop-down boxes;
2) pdf zooming; and
3) improved library organization/navigation features, e.g. folder-based navigation.

Javascript support in HTML documents would be kinda sweet.
Even sweeter: an SDK ... pleeeeeeeeease with cherry on top

What I'd like to see is:

1. Better PDF support: internal Links in PDFs, support for PDF TOC, zooming

2. Folders

3. Better HTML support: Links between HTML documents, support for more HTML elements (the most important for me would be the <pre> element)

4. An SDK

5. Source code of the GPL'd components

1. Remappable buttons (will never use music, and don't want to lose my place when I accidentally pick up the Cybook by its edges... I hate to think what I'll do if they enable the delete button (: )

2. Tags, rather than folders. Otherwise where will I put that Cyberpunk Romance Recommended-by-Mary that is Not-Read?

I don't own a Cybook Gen 3 -- I have a Sony PRS500. By I could be induced to switch. It would take a few things:

1. Vastly improved support for large libraries. This could be folders. It could be drill-down menu selection as described by delphidb96. It could be hugely improved tagging. But something. And definitely something better than the one-level drill-down Sony added with the 505.
2. Inter-document hyperlinks. This could be html or pdf or mobi or... The key thing here is that it would let me build #1 on my own if I had to.
3. Better support for large libraries.

Xenophon

Oh yeah... Did I mention that I want better support for large libraries?

I guess I should have said more flexible zooming. Yes, you can "zoom" with a few "limited possibilities": fit to page, fit to width, fit to height, combined with either portrait or landscape display. Of these, only the fit-to-width/landscape mode made my 8.5 inch x 11 inch PDF readable, and that only barely. Personally, I would like a zoomed page mode where I pick the zoom factor as a preference and the display is a "window" on just part of the page that fits; the direction buttons would be used to move the "window" on the image, similar to the image viewer.
