As you say, there's no accepted standard, but there are a number of ePub devices on the market which do have dictionary lookup. Eg, the Sony PRS-600 and 900, the Pocketbook devices, and the Onyx Boox 60, to name but a few.

But I believe they have their own built-in dictionaries, don't they?

Alright thanks.

I've tried both 1.5 and 2.0 and they are both buggy as hell (won't jump to pages forward, get stuck and crash). I'm going back to my old firmware.

The Sony does; the PB and Onyx devices can use dictionaries in some relatively standard format, I believe. Certainly there's a range of them available. As far as I know, though, they are all public domain dictionaries, not modern "commercial" ones. That's not an issue with me, because my only real use for dictionaries is in reading 18th and 19th century novels, so 19th or early 20th century dictionaries are fine for that. I'm using the 1913 Websters on my PB360.

That's odd - we've had very few reports of instabilities with the new firmware. Indeed, many people have found that they've fixed the issues they were having with the older firmware versions.

I mostly read off txt and html files. I has no problem before jumping to any random page with the "goto" feature, this didn't work on either the 1.5 or the 2.0 firmwares. I converted my files to epub files for the 2.0 software and I still couldn't skip to page or "go to last page".

I just reflashed with 1.2 Build 796, and its working fine. I'll sacrifice folder view for being able to actually read the books in the manner I want.

Maybe my old cybook doesn't behave well with the new firmware? Anyway happy enough with it as is, if a new firmware is released I might look at it but meh.

I have an old Cybook (64 MB), and it works wonderfully with 2.0, maybe you have some corrupt flash/card/files? I don't use the "Go to" feature much, but when I have, I've had no problems. I've only suffered some "hang during boot-up" lately, but no crash during reading.

Odd indeed, didn't work for me on various books, html, txt, epub etc.

Dunno.

And one book wouldn't open at all after a while (txt).

Why on Earth have you resurrected an ancient thread in the Bookeen forum to ask a completely unrelated question about the Kindle? Why do you think we have a Kindle forum?

Device: Cybook Odyssey + Kobo mini
Hello,
I apologize in advance, for I am not very good in technique, so please be patient ;-)
I have read this whole thread, and I still have a question:

A bit of context first:
As a very happy owner of a kobo mini, I tend to offer e-readers to my reading friends.
The Kobo Mini is no more available, and I had studied the cybook products, so I last bougt 3 odyssey to offer for Christmas, one HD Frontlight (which comes under the Carrefour NOLIM name), and 2 cybook odyssey basic.

My problem is that I need to give them "ready to use", and I've been spending ages trying to find an English dictionnary that would work like the one I have on my Kobo.
I found and installed the En-Fr dictionnary, but at least two of the people I'm offering the e-book to would much prefer to have an En-EN dictionnary. I found the link where I could download 5 dictionnaries, including and En-EN.
I downloaded it directly in the e-reader. It is there, I checked. But if I underline a word in an English ebook it only gives me the translation in French.

Where are the parameters I need to change if I want the en-En dictionnary, rather than the En-Fr to be used?
Is there a way to keep both in the e-reader, or do I need to delete the translating one?

Thanks a lot for your answer, I put many books in the 3 readers, and the ppl will need to access dictionnaries.
