I can't delete books from my Kindle.

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 21:29:06 GMT

Knowing me I could be the only person who has this problem. I can't delete books from my Kindle seventh gen Paperwhite. Whether directly from the Kindle or from the doc folder within the device. In the second case a permanently deleted book will disappear from the docs folder but still can be read on the Kindle????? Richard

Dictionary missing in N96 after firmaware update to 1.8.1

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 20:48:07 GMT

Hi, After updating to firmaware version 1.8.1, I cannot see the "Dictionary" setting anymore. Furthermore, no dictionary entries are retrieved when I call the dictionary from the OReader app. I get the message "No dict found". Has anyone the same issue and knows how to fix it? Also, the only dictionaries that can be downloaded from the built-in app are chinese. Does anyone know from where other dictionaries can be downloaded? Thanks!

Glo HD and Firmware 4.2.8432

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 20:04:01 GMT

Aura H2O Connecting as a drive via WLAN instead of USB

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 17:02:45 GMT

Since a few days I have a Kobo H2O. Not only because it has a cover of the USB female it would be great to connect the device via WLAN instead the USB cable with my MacBook. Like with a network drive. Is there any hack/patch to realize that? I do not talk about a WLAN connection to Calibre. Thanks.

iPod Touch Gen 6 needs wireless connection for playback

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 13:25:11 GMT

I have a Touch Gen 6 which I use for listening to audiobooks via the relevant dedicated apps - Audible, Downpour, OverDrive. Before playing already downloaded content, the Touch requires that I have an active wireless connection. Once I start the playback, I can turn the wireless back off without incident and the book will continue to play. What is frustrating is that this means, however, that I can't just start up an audiobook if I'm not in a hotspot, or if I'm listening and the playback cuts out for any reason, I can't start it up again. Is there a workaround for this that doesn't involve downloading and managing content through iTunes? I don't have this issue on Android devices.

Kobo H2O and Firmware 4.2.8432

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 11:32:51 GMT

I synced my H2O last night and it downloaded and installed this new firmware. The installation seemed to go smoothly. After the firmware had been installed the reader then started syncing, which took a very long time. Usually it only takes a few seconds. It was taking so long I wondered if it might be hung up and was considering pressing the little reset button by the USB port. I decided to wait it out. During the wait, the home screen reloaded numerous times, and the items on the home page would be rearranged and or different after each reload. Finally, the little sync tab switched from "syncing" to "downloading covers" and it finished. Everything seems to be working okay. I did notice, after the firmware upgraded, that one of the changes or new features said something about sideloaded books or books not bought from the Kobo store or something, and I do have several thousand sideloaded books on the device, I am not sure if this could have caused it or not.

New to eBooks!

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 23:35:54 GMT

Howdy All, I'm interested in buying an eBook reader, however I'm quite lost regarding which. I've been reading and searching for some time now and still no conclusion. I'm on a quest to buy a reader that can handle all formats available and in particular books purchased from amazon and pdfs. At the moment I'm considering kindle voyage or Denver EBO 610L. Can anyone share some advice with me? /mistermr

is the Kobo H2O big enough for manga?

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 23:19:44 GMT

I wish to buy the Kobo H2O and I wish to ask you if for your experience it is big enough for reading manga please. I know there is a bigger device (Kobo One) but I wish the Kobo H2O because battery like is better and have the micro sd card expansion port (very useful for manga). a lot of time ago I had the first Kobo Glo model and I was using a software called comic2reader for creating manga. This software was good because it was able to reduce the white borders around the corners. Which software do you use today to make this job? Is it always better to make it in .cbr or today is better to make the file in other file extensions for an optimal reading experience on the kobo? Thx a lot

Any easy way of syncing reading position betwenn Moon+ Reader and Marvin?

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 19:31:07 GMT

Is there any easy way of manually syncing the reading position between Moon+ Reader (Android) and Marvin (iOS)? Owner of an iPad, a Nexus 7 and an Android smartphone (Zenfone 3), I'd like to find a way to transfer my reading to the most suitable device at hand. Moon+ Reader does a good job of syncing between my Android devices, but then my beautiful iPad's big screen goes unused, unless I perform a tiring and awkward process of searching in one device the point where I left off on the other. So far, I've noticed each app seems to calculate the percentage progress differently and, therefore, using the progress slide is unreliable. Because of this, the easiest and most reliable method I've found is to jump among chapters in the content menu, which only facilitates my task if I restrict myself to change devices on chapters' borders.

Kobo Start Menu Stopped Loading

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 20:19:34 GMT

Hi, I turned my kobo h20 on the other day showed a message about a new update, and I couldn't do anything other than accept. Then the screen had a weird animation rotating with an arrow repeatedly.. Since that Nickel is working correctly, but KSM doesn't start on launch or work if i click the image in the library.... I am a bit worried about installing KSM from scratch in case it caused further issues. Anyone had the same thing or can anyone advise what I need to do to reinstall? Cheers
