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,

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.
