The best way to clip the jacket onto the reader is to insert the reader with the jacket already closed. This way the pins are properly aligned (they are set at 90 degree intervals) and you can perform the process on a less than ideal surface, such as a concrete floor, without fear of scratching the reader's money face.

If like me you are accidentally always pushing one of the ten buttons and losing your place, a rubber band around the reader next to the buttons and the same thickness or higher makes it much harder to do. It does however make the off/on switch a bit harder to operate

if you install the "go to page" hack then f you hit the number buttons nothing will hapen until you either do a page turn or hit enter to go to that page. No more hitting the number button and off to some other part of the book.

I just turn my reader off before I put the cover back on.

Alas, another newbie question - where can I find the go to page hack? I tried search in the forums but didn't see what I thought I would.

Thanks!

Check the Reader Developer's Corner subforum of the Sony Reader Subforum, the thread you're looking for is a sticky (so it stays at the top of the list), I'd suggest the Hack Builder thread, as the app in there will let you choose the hacks you want through a GUI (Graphic User Interface, in case you don't know the term ). Just look through the thread for tips on using it, and to make sure you get the most recent version of the tool.

Gee, I have missed so much not being around much.......... even I have to go and check this stuff out, and if I even can understand it.

My puter crashed once again, can you believe it, this time a missing or corrupted windows file. either way, this time I installed CONNECT but I didn't go and register it again because I have a feeling these crashes may happen again (every month or two) and if I am not buying any books I don't need to register at this time, I can still use the software to transfer my stuff without that. If all seems well after a few months time I will go ahead but I see no reason to now. And so glad I have the USB backup now, reinstalling my stuff sure was a lot easier than hunting down the burned cd's and of which I have two I think that won't load so they are not worth a darn now either....... love this spare drive, don't have a computer without one. Never liked burning a cd anyways

Hi guys and ladies.

Oops. Was going to recommend a practice that was already described well earlier. Enjoy!

Hi guys and ladies.

Right, you can always do that in two or three crashes!

Spare drives are the best... if you don't forget backing up to them!

Welcome back Karen and stay tuned, they're about to unveil the Kindle.

Hello terrible, LOL........... I don't forget to backup now, in fact anything new added goes directly to the USB drive as well, learned that the last time. I may have lost a few things but for most parts I did fine with what I did save.

Okay what the heck is the *kindle*? something else to confuse me? LOL.

Thanks. I come and go like the wind around here

The Kindle is what we think is going to be Amazon's ebook reader.

Right, and it's supposed to be chock full of features the other readers don't have, like a tiny keyboard and wireless to link up to a book site, something Amazon has not said much about yet.

But what we don't know is if the Kindle is going to use another new DRM scheme or Mobipocket. If it's a new DRM scheme, then the Kindle can go get stuffed.

What else would it be? They have Mobi.
I'm with you on their getting stuffed with their own DRM...
