DPT-RP1 - device not pairing with Digital Paper App

Mon, 26 Jun 2017 12:30:52 GMT

Hi there, I have just received my DTP-RP1 and am very excited. However, having installed the software, when I try to pair the Digital Paper App with the reader, all I get is a message right after I plug the reader that says "Connecting to Digital Paper" (with a little rotating wheel telling me something is happening). The message appears for about 30 seconds before disappearing. Nothing more happens, and the device is not paired. Any suggestion? I suspect this is a driver problem. I'm using Windows 7. All help appreciated.

KT2 Need help getting KT2 back to life

Mon, 26 Jun 2017 12:13:47 GMT

Ok, first post here, so.. Hi everyone :thumbsup: I have some trouble with my KT2. A few weeks back i jailbroke it succesfully. After putting something on (don't ask me what it was exactly, it was weeks back. Some Book.) and rebooting the device i'm stuck in a bootloop/update loop. Currently i get a "Your Kindle needs to be repaired" screen. After a Hard reboot it tries to update, Fails on the way and goes back to that screen. While it's booting i have access to the storage over USB on Windows. Sadly it doesn't stay so long enough to put the full 190MB Firmware on it. As soon as the "Repair needed" Screen pops up, access to storage is gone. Since most threads i found are a bit all over the place, i'm not sure where to start. I tried running mfgtool, but i crashes under Windows 10. From what i've read, i could get to fastboot and get it to work with a special cable. But since, my reader is still reacting to input i'd rather avoid buying special stuff and get it back up and running some other way. Any help or input on how to resolve my Problem would be greatly appreciated. If you need any further information, i'll do my very best to brovide that.

4.4 disable forced sync when wireless is turned on?

Mon, 26 Jun 2017 10:51:55 GMT

So, I usually leave my wireless disabled... Until I want to load a book, which is when I enable it and connect to my library with the browser. I noticed that with the 4? series of firmware, that when you turn the wifi on and connect, that it automatically syncs and updates. This happens regardless of the sync settings (which I have disabled). Does anyone know how to disable this behavior? I'd like to pin my device to a particular firmware version. It has to be a 4 series firmware as that series has the large file download bug fixed. Thanks all!l

Troubleshooting Tables in DOC's converted from HTML scrolling only left & right

Mon, 26 Jun 2017 09:49:22 GMT

Hello The situation looks like this. I have a file, a book, which is just a website mirror DOC file, that was a HTML file, that I changed the extension to DOC. The text in that file/on that website, unfortunately is in one table object, and I can't scroll down this table, only left and right. Maybe I could write a suggestion of fixing it to the Amazon, maybe they don't know that there is such issue? Or maybe there is easy solution to that?

Kindle Paper white

Mon, 26 Jun 2017 08:04:03 GMT

There is a navigational ToC (it does not reflect the print version as the ebook does not have the author names) Various links within references are live in the text and seem to work fine…except for .pdfs…which Kindle indicates in a window, cannot be read on the tablet When I clicked on the URL links on the copyright page (, etc.), it took several tries for the websites to open and view. I didn’t have a problem with URL links opening in References.

Best Software for Annotating?

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 20:50:16 GMT

Hi y'all. There really is a forum for everthing! I love it. I would like some advice on what is the best ereader or software for extensive annotating and highlighting. I need something that would enable me to arrange and save the selections into, say, 20 different searchable categories. I'm using Kindle app on Ipad and also Overdrive right now, but the four different highlight colors won't cut it. I'm wanting to group similar information from multiple books into these categories. If there is nothing out there that'll do this I'd love to hear your thoughts on the best way I can get this done. Cut and paste? Upload and download? Thanks.

Touch Lux 3 - something similar to Vocabulary Builder?

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 17:03:29 GMT

I bought my Touch Lux 3 few days ago but unfortunetly i missed one thing when i was comparing it with Paperwhite 3. Does the Pocketbook Touch Lux 3 have possibility to install something that works similar to the Vocabulary Builder? If someone does not hear about it yet, Vocabulary Builder is a list of words that is generated from the words checked in the dictionary during reading. I hope I will not have to return my Pocketbook and buy a Kindle to have this feature. ps. sorry for my english, this is why i need this feature :)

Help a newbie: how do I expand the synopsis?

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 17:02:01 GMT

I've just got a Kobo. I've loaded a dozen books into it for my wife. How do I expand the synopsis? She wants to choose what to read! I: 1. Hold down a finger on the book title in "my books" 2. Chose "view details" 3. Choose "synopsis" But then what? Every synopsis is cut short and ends in an ellipsis. How do I expand them out? Thanks in advance.

Kindle 3 WiFi+3G Eu unable to jailbreak

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 15:26:12 GMT

I am completely aware there have been posts about this before on this forum but I believe they are outdated I want to jailbreak my kindle 3. I have confirmed what model it is and I am using version 3.4.2. I followed the guide for the jailbreak and screensaver hack on this forum but I received an error, unsure what this meant I tried the screensaver hack and got the same error. I am unsure what to do at this point and I'd rather someone else who knows their way around jailbreaking kindles to give some insight into this problem. Thanks -Marcus

Advice on software

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 11:27:38 GMT

Hi all, I've recently bought a kobo aura edition 2. I found the latest software to be a bit buggy (4.4.9349 i think)- there was a lot of battery drain and i'd sometimes wake up to a completely drained device due to it. I ended up sideloading 4.4.9298. It's still got a few bugs-namely, the light doesnt turn off when i put the device to sleep (i have to manually turn it down first). Also the light keeps turning on when i turn my device on even when i've previously set it to 0. Are there any other previous software versions you could advice? I only really sideload books on my device so i don't need the greatest functionality in terms of the kobo store etc. I just want a working light and a good battery life Cheers all

Ereader for private epub technical manuals

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 08:26:04 GMT

Hi, I work in the IT department of a small firm that makes industrial equipments. Our employees have tablets with manuals and checklists useful to complete the installation tasks at clients' factories. Unfortunately tablets are not easy to read in direct sunlight... Since our manual are in epub format, we would like to migrate to a good epub reader. Here is what we are looking for: * Size from 6 to 10 inches * Price 100-200 euro * Epub and possibly PDF support * High resolution screen (300 ppi?) * No link to an ebook store: the device will be used only for read our manuals (loaded by the IT guys) * Possibility to fully disable internet connection (for security reasons and for longer battery life) * Possibly sd card * Long battery life * Possibility to load extra fonts in opentype format Could you suggest some models?

Where to buy KA1 in US that's NOT from

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 03:14:17 GMT

So, I posted last week about the terrible customer service I received from when I tried to return my KA1. (It suffered from the giant green splotches on the bottom of the screen. Blergh.) I really loved the size and the device, though, so I'd like to try another one. But I really, really don't want to order it from if I can help it. Any suggestions for a poor, American reader like me? ;)
