computer does not recognise my eco reader
#1  rocket54 07-17-2010, 12:26 AM
i received my new eco reader yesterday and did the 12 hour charge overnight. As i wanted to load some epub drm ebooks that i have purchased i used the supplied usb cable to connect the eco to my computer. unfortunately the computer does not recognise the eco as an external device so i am unable to have adobe de authorise the eco. If anyone has any ideas your help would be greatly appreciated as i am unable to load the books i have purchased. Thank you.

Welcome to MR, rocket54.

Are you able to try a different USB port on your computer and/or a different USB cable? What operating system do you have on your computer?

Stupid question, but is the eco switched on ?

Not a stupid question, however an ECO Reader will switch itself on and offer to connect, if it isn't already switched on when connected via USB to a computer.

Heh, dinky, even. I think rocket might be needing some chocolate and kittens about now.

I'm sending you a PM (Private Message), rocket... see top right of the page, under your username.

My ecoreader connects automatically in Windows XP. With Ubuntu, it is not recognised properly, and keeps blinking and reconnecting.

Any further advice would be welcome.

Thanks for the vote of confidence, Geoff, but I'm not familiar with Ubuntu.

anfisco, did you try using a different USB port on your Ubuntu computer? Is the USB cable clearly inserted fully at both ends?

Edit: anfisco, I sent you a PM, too.
