sjaaks,

If you're not reading ebooks produced by the Wolf software, how are you getting books onto the device? Does it show up as a USB device when you plug it into your computer? Are you copying files to an SD card and then putting the SD card into the V8?

What format are the files you're reading? TXT?

Thanks,
-Brian

Without conversing to Wolf I can read a English text on the device. Or I select and copy paste to notepad and bring it to the SD card, or I save page as... directly to the SD card. Than the SD card in the book. I am reading HTML and TXT and Wolf.

sjaakie, it's good to hear it's possible. It doesn't support PDF files right? I'll mainly read PDF files i'd reckon. What's the method of payment? I assume creditcard right?

Thanks, lemme know. I wanna order ASAP

Thumbs down V8 needs more work!!!

I borrowed a Hanlin V8 from a friend of mine a few days ago. The device is too buggy and it crashes a lot. I was quite disappointed. The PDF reader that Hanlin claims is bogus. It is basically a picture file on the device, not a real PDF reader!!!

PDF files I don't know about.
The payment in advance to their Chinese bank. 299 USD + parcel costs EMS 76 USD. Go to the Jinke site and start a conversation with May.

Update. Concerning the Netherlands. My V8 has arrived august 3 and now august 24 did I get an additional VAT (BTW) bill of 68,88 euro.
Total costs till now, 299 USD + 76 USD + transfer 7,50 euro + BTW 68,88 euro.

Total 308,29 euro + 68,88 euro = a lot of money. Wait till it is in the shop. It will be cheaper and better.

Finally some hands-on the Russian model!

So, I can see in attachment #1422 that it has problems with quotes; two Cyrillic characteres before the quotes -and the closing quote appears as an opening one.

Ehem... And I can see HTML bold does not work here. Karma goes back to you, I guess!

Without me knowing Chinese its rather difficult to install the CD enclosed by the Hanlin V8. After many times installing and uninstalling the software, it works. The software Wolf needs work. But that is for Jinke. Take a look at the pictures.

With the Wolf software installed, I have copied this tread to the V8 and zoomed the text as seen on the pictures. A nicer lettertype or Font would be welcome, but I don't know how to do it. Anyone? This Georgia type on my reader.

Why are you using software from cd???
Take it from http://www.jinke.com.cn/compagesql/E...nter/index.asp
http://www.jinke.com.cn/compagesql/u...es00000020.rar
http://www.jinke.com.cn/compagesql/u...es00000057.rar

It works well enough...

TaKir,

Thank you for that information. It is much more easier to install and it is even up to date. So the CD is to ignore.

It would be nice to have such a nice font on the reader.

You're wellcome
As I can see at your photos, there are minor problems with some lines - they are a bit to the right from left edge...
You can try using msword to format your books.
Make all paragraphs first lines=0.6mm, no linebreaks, justified, save as txt - it should be ok.

Important!!!
Do not use names for your books, with first common part
Author_book1.txt
Author_book2.txt
Author_book(n).txt

Use inique first part of a name for books in one folder. (Book_author, or Book in folder "Author") or 01_book.txt, 02_book.txt, etc.

Otherwise you can see all books called "Author_book1.txt" with the same text.
