Strange issue the reader fixed by itself.

My reader software froze with the reader connected to the computer so i was forced to simply unplug the reader.

All the books were still on the reader but apparently they had lost all formatting info. I always thought the reader formatted between s m and L on the fly, but apparently this inital formatting is done by the computer and saved somewhere on the reader.

PDFs worked fine as the resizing there is a simple zoom.

But for all my other books every time i went into each on again, the arrow/circle/spinny logo came up with the message formatting. and then again on that book when i changed the text size.

seems that the reader had to go through for each book and figure out for itself what the formatting should be. After i went through each book, and hit the size change button a few times, everything was back to normal. Annoying in a way, but also cool that the reader could figure out for itself without having to reload all the books from scratch.
