[bookport] Re: [other] Re: problem connecting Bookport

I don't know how. I can't seem to find any sort of "Remove" button. I found a "Disable Drive" checkbox (Actually, I think it was "Enable Drive" but it was checked), but that's near as it gets. I tried just hitting my Delete key when my cursor was on the MP3 player, but to no avail. I may just try disabling the drive; at this point, I haven't much to lose.

I'd delete the mp3 player and reboot.

The device manager doesn't say anything about the BookPort. It does, in fact, say something about a TTS MP3 player. It might be time to call tech support.

Well, you can accomplish the same thing with the tab key. I still saw no
check-box to change the drive letter. (If I sound a bit terse, please don't
take it to heart; I'm just quite frustrated with this situation.)


It doesn't seem to be so much a problem of Windows recognizing the Bookport
(although it may be misidentifying it), but rather getting Bookport Transfer
to see that Bookport is there. What is *supposed* to be there? When you
highlight the Bookport drive with Windows Explorer and/or look at it with
the device manager, what *should* be there? Should it say "Bookport?" When
I look at Bookport with my device manager, it calls it "SD Inc
TTSMP3player".

There needs to be an additional step in those directions that isn't
obvious to someone who isn't looking for it. Between steps 3 and 4, you
need to press F6 to get to the list view on the right.

I tried following those instructions and my control panel isn't laid out
the
same way.  There's no check box to change the drive letter.  A friend
told
me the documentation seems to have been written with Windows XP Pro in
mind
rather than Windows XP Home, but since I've never seen Windows XP Pro, I
can
only shrug.  I just know the instructions don't fit what I see on my
screen.
In fact, I've looked through properties and tried all kinds of things,
but I
can't seem to find a method of changing the drive letter.

Hi,

The most common reason in my experience for the transfer software not
to
be showing the Book Port is because there is a drive letter conflict.
Are
you using a system that is either on a network or that has other usb
devices connected to it. If so, follow the instructions in the Book
Port
manual for resolving drive letter conflicts.

As for the batteries, I'll try replacing them. I'm using the ones
which
came with the Bookport.  It seems to work fine, but you never know.
Thanks.

One more suggestion I would have is to check and possibly replace
your
batteries. As for that silly autoplay dialog, I just press escape
when
it comes up and go on my way with the transfer software.

Thanks, Sarah. You know, I tried that and it did do something
strange.
When I reconnected the Bookport after resetting it, I got a dialog
box
that
said "Autoplay" and had a Cancel button.  It stayed there for a bit
and
then
went away.

I think, near as I can tell, that my computer thinks BookPort is an
MP3
player ... which it is, I suppose ... but I'm unclear as to how to
tell
Windows not to treat it like an ordinary MP3 player. I found a check
box
in
the library proprties of the drive that said "Enable Drive" and it as
checked, but I feared if I unchecked the box then Windows wouldn't
acknowledge Bookport's being connected at all.

<Frustrated> I'm pretty savvy with my computer when it comes to
software,
but when hardware issues come up I start to glaze over and whimper
pathetically. <Grin>

Hi BoomerDad,

Have you tried resetting your BookPort with 2+b?  I had your same
problem
once and this is what fixed it for me.

HTH and good luck,

Sarah

Thanks for the tip; unfortunately it changed nothing.

It seems to see the Bookport as a TTS-MP3 player. Essentially,
tha'ts
correct ... but nowhere does it say Bookport ... unless I go to
Windows
Explorer and if I look at the Send To menu, it does list Bookpore
(and
it
says "Bookport") as one of the send-to options.  I tried just using
that
to
send a book to Bookport, but it didn't work.  <Sigh> Couldn't be
that
easy.
Grrrr... I don't get it.  It's like everyone knows about the
birthday
party
but the guest of honor!
Everyone in my computer's innards seems to recognize Bookport ...
except
Bookport Transfer!!

Try rebooting your computer with the Bookport connected.
