[bookport] Re: Slow Mp3 files

This is the only thing I know of that I haven't tried.  I did update the =
firmware from 1.05 to 1.11.  How would I go about reinstalling the =
firmware?  At this point, it couldn't hurt and it might actually help.

Thanks,

Sarah

It might be worth reinstalling the firmware on the BookPort; Rob/Larry, =

is this worth a try?

I will second what Richard says.  I first transferred the mp3 files onto =
=3D
=3D3D
the BookPort, found the problem wherein they are played at less than =
=3D3D
half speed, reset the BookPort, tried the transfer with the same =3D3D
results, reformatted the CF card, tried the transfer again with the same =
=3D
=3D3D
results, tried the transfer on another computer system with the same =
=3D3D
results, tried another CF card, again with those same weird results.  I =
=3D
=3D3D
have my own personal BookPort, which handles mp3 files just fine.  I =
=3D3D
transferred an mp3 file to another BookPort in the pilot project and the =
=3D
=3D3D
file played perfectly.
So, after all this, I can only believe that this particular BookPort is =
=3D
=3D3D
defective and needs repair from APH.  If anyone has any more =3D3D
suggestions, please don't hesitate to offer them, even if they sound =
=3D3D
obvious.

Thank you very much.

Yes.
And, these files play just fine on my personal Bookport.

I have had, not too long ago, my sound card or mp3 player play mp3 files
at about half speed, and my solution which did work was to reboot,
however if you've already recorded the files on the bookport, that won't

help. Have you duplicated it, re-recorded the files on a bookport, done
it more than once after a complete system reset?

Greetings:
I posted a message on this subject yesterday, but I would like to see if
anyone has a clue.
We are considering a pilot program at our state library.  We would lend
to patrons pre-loaded Bookports, just to test the possibilities that are
available when it comes to digital books.
We would like to load an example of each of the major file types that
are supported by Bookport.
We began by testing a Bookport on Friday.  Our systems could not see the
device.  I brought the unit home and formatted the card three times.
Finally, my home computer was able to see the device.  MP3 files were
transferred to the device using the Bookport transfer. =3D3D3D3D3D20
These files are playing at less than half the speed one might expect to
hear them.  For those of you who remember records (I know, not many)
it's worse than playing a 33 and a third record at 16 and two thirds.
(Note these are record speeds, which were measured in RPMs revolutions
per minute)
Has anyone ever seen this?  Is there a solution?
