Red face New 505 not showing as device in Windows

Bought a new 505...

Plugged it in to charge while I was installing the eBook Library software. At that time, the device was detected by Windows (XP MCE) and I could see that the unit was in its 'USB connected state.'

Somewhere during that process, I got an error relating to the USB device and it has been invisible ever since.

The unit no longer shows that it's connected via USB and no storage device shows in Windows.

eBook library no longer shows its contents.

A soft reset didn't seem to help, not did several Windows reboots.

I hate to sound like a noob (but on this subject, I am...), but is there any advice for what should be a straightforward device connect?

My site searching failed me, tonight...

Thanks.

-Joe

OK... did the ole 'uninstall/reinstall routine' with eBook Library and it seems to be working now.

Weird.

Glad you were able to solve the problem. It's always kind of scary when weird stuff happens.

I have the 505 and love it.

I've been experimenting with Calibre.

So far, I'm kinda wondering how you use the embedded fonts, but after reading one of the sticky threads in that forum, I at least have sans-serifs working, I just can't yet prove what typeface it is!

I've been dithering on one of these for a while, now.

My friends, who have a 505 and 500 each, were oh, so sympathetic last night: "Out of the box less than an hour and bricked already!"

With friends like these...

They deserve a present... I seem to remember seeing something like screen protectors that had what looks like cracks on them...

Oh and as you are here....



Your website has not only been invaluable for me, but I know at least 2 others who would never have bought readers if it wasn't for you.
