A Few Tiny Problems

After having my previous ST completely stop working I got my new one a few weeks ago but now I'm having new problems with it. All of them are small but when added together it's very annoying.

Sorting: I sort my books by author but I have authors all over the place. For instance I'll be scrolling though my "Unknown" (this is usually fanfiction) authors and in the middle I'll have a book by Goodkind. And have all of the Immortal After Dark series by Kresely Cole, but they're all over the place.

Scrolling though my library. Before my other ST stopped working altogether I could easily scroll though the books. But now it seems to freeze for a few seconds before turning to the next set of books. And I can't hold the button down to quickly skim though my titles.

Covers. Not all but some of my books don't have covers. And most of them are books that I converted to epub so they would have the cover I wanted. This happened with my Nalini Singh books, I prefer the UK covers, but now there's no cover and with the previous ST there was the covers.

All my books are on the SD card I have nearly 2400 books/fanfictions/personal documents on it.

Anyone have similar problems or a way to fix them?

Download Calibre and use it. Standardized author names and titles, series identification and numbering, covers, etc. Put all ebooks thru Calibre and then transfer them to your ST.

I already use Calibre.

It's gotten worse already. Now it sometimes won't turn the page when I'm reading right away but then if I press it again it will randomly turn the page later while I'm in the middle of reading.

If a reset doesn't work, I would take it to Barnes & Noble for repair/exchange.
