Wingdings???

I have been having problems with my cybook odyssey lately. Was bug free for a year so of course this happens one month past the manufacturer's warranty!

It reboots on its own, the battery isn't working well and the problems have been escalating.

Today was terrible. I went through six reboots without touching a single button. Yup. Six.

When it finally booted to the main page everything was in wingdings! I couldn't read a single thing in the menus or the book titles. BUT: the non-DRM books displayed fine once opened.

I can't explain it! Does anyone know what to do? I'm a novice with computers.

Failing that, could someone give me a list of menus so I know the order? (a big task I know!) I can just carry a physical list of my books if need be.

Here's a link that directly downloads a Cybook Odyssey User's Manual in PDF format:

http://www.mff.cuni.cz/fakulta/lib/pdf/Cybook_navod.pdf

Save it after it downloads. It's 40 pages, approximately 5.8 MB.

Don't know if it will help ... I know ZERO about the Cybook Odyssey. The name sounds like it should be the title of a SF movie.

Locks like the cybook display the book "raw" without decrypting. (for drm books) That sure is weird.

Maybe you should contact bookeen, they can probably give some help there (problem don't seam to be hardware)

I would go for the hard but should effective way :
Copy all to books to pc
Format cybook memory (as FAT 32)
Enter all settings again (including adobe account).
copy books back to cybook.

Thumbs up

FIXED IT! I plugged my Odyssey into my computer and re-formatted.


Just turned it back on and it's working just fine! It's as if it was just started for the first time.

I only had a few DRM files on the Odyssey itself, the rest are on a MicroSD card so it was a fast and easy fix (I took the SD out first.)

I just wanted to say:
