Thank you for sending me the driver and Bible. No go on the detecting the device though. Came up with balloon saying hardware problem check device. I tried deleting the usb driver and reloading it but still the same problem.
I might have a problem maybe with the usb cable. The windows xp computer I have is 2.0 USB. I hope its backwards compatible to the 1.0.
I did remove the cover to the Hiebook to inspect for any cracked solder joints and such. No problems there. I did notice that there is a 3V battery inside. Its a button type. I measured the voltage. It is 2.9vdc. The only way to replace it is desoldering it. I can't believe they arc soldered the battery in. Top and bottom.
I didn't want to go any further and put it all back together. I am an electronic tech by trade so doing this does not scare me.
