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

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.

Hmm. I'll try it again and do that. Before, when it came up, that was the only evidence of anything different happening. Eventually that box just disappeared and my computer went along as if I hadn't connected anything to the PC at all.

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.

Hi.  I just got my Bookport today and installed the transfer software,
but
I can't get the transfer software to recognize Bookport.  It would seem
Windows recognizes Bookport as another drive on my computer; I can even
use Windows Exporer to go in and look at the folders on Bookport ... but
when I run the Transfer program with Bookport connected via the USB
cable,
I get the "not connected" sound and can't send any files to BOokport.
Any
help here is greatly appreciated, because while I enjoy reading the
manual
with BOokport, it's not exactly what I"d intended to use the device for.
