    Library Books Freezes after 6 pages

    Ronald S

      I dowloaded books from the library through ADE and onto my Kobo ereader.  After reading the book for about 6 pages it freezes and I have to wait for about 5 minutes for it to be able to read.  Then when I start to read it freezes again.  I contacted Kobo to correct this problem and they suggested uninstalling ADE and reinstalling and trying again.  I have done this twice and the same problem occurs.  What can I do to correct this?

          Just in case you could try installing the older more reliable v1.7.2; but (for once) it seems very unlikely that this is an ADE 2.0 error, buggy as it is.

           

          It could be that you have an awkward book; try a few more.

          Get free books from project Gutenberg (http://www.gutenberg.org/), and I suggest you use Calibre to load them.

          There are lots of bugs in ADE2.0 (and 2.0.1).  Try replacing ADE2.0 with the older but more reliable v1.7.2.

          (You can have them both installed at once if you like.)

          Version 1.7.2, it is a little difficult to find, available on Adobe site for Windows and for Mac.

          Some people have found ADE trying to upgrade automatically. 

          It appears (not 100% sure) that if you install ADE2.0 as a new install (not as an upgrade) that your 1.7.2 will continue to run.

          Probably best to say no if 2.0.x installation asks if you want to migrate your library.
