Usually outright crashes to be completely unresponsive forcing me to have to press the "reset" button on the back. I have learned to never ever remove or insert the card unless the unit is off. Though if I remove it turn it on and then insert it its usually ok. Its when I both REMOVE and INSERT while its on that it tends to get upset with me :-)

You get safer results if you remove a card with Connect doing it.

I've tried removing a card while the unit was off. This resulted in a serious anxiety attack -- I was afraid it might never work again. I finally found the reset button and all was well.

If I insert or remove a card while the unit is on and at the book list page, it simply thinks about it for a moment (an icon of two arrows chasing each other in a circle) and the new index appears. *All* books retain their places.

I've never tried it with the Connect software, because it doesn't run here (and wouldn't be useful to me if it did.) All books are transfered via SD card, so I switch cards out on a pretty regular basis.

A very useful tip that I wished I've found out sooner.
http://hightech.afmag.net/transfer-b...-fast-way.html

If you transfer books into a dedicated cardreader with the connect software, the books will be formatted correctly, but at a much higher speed than when transferring the books into the reader directly.

(of course, only interesting if you have large books of over the 50MB)

I did notice the other day when I had my SD card in the card reader that Connect saw it. Didn't know it could do that.

It'll see it if it's in a card reader too. Go on, try it.

just be careful with 4GB cards though... you can add more files than 2GB through the connect reader, but the Sony Reader can't access it to write it's metadata (history) so it will crash....

I've discovered (as a result of a discussion over at the Baen Bar) that the 10-page jump thingy (hold the "Next" button down for 5 seconds to jump 10 pages) also works in the menus.

I've been trying to post it over there to answer a question, but I can't get the thing to give stay available long enough to make the stupid post.

Man, do I love MobileRead -- it's only been out twice that I know of in 18 months, and one of those was the server migration!

It's not exactly the same. It won't jump 10 pages, instead it will jump to the beginning or the end. (hold next for 5 seconds->jump to end of TOC, hold previous for 5 seconds->jump to begining)

It could be the same thing. The only way to know for sure it to make a ToC that is more then 10 pages long to test it out.

How long does it take Baen Bar to email your username and password? Been like 15 min so far with no email.

Dunno. I signed up better than a year ago, so I don't remember.

if you worry about scratch, use "food wrap" plastic thing to wrap it and it sticks and you can read through it, wont cost you a penny
