I previously had an older version of Digital Editions installed on this computer (not sure of the version), which was working fine with the Aluratek reader we have. After the update to 1.7, Digital Editions is hanging whenever the reader is plugged into the computer; when unplugged, the application works fine. A little investigation indicates that the problem may be with the application reading the current data on the reader for display; the manifest file on the reader is constantly being re-written, pointing to an endless loop of reads to the reader. I have tried wiping the manifests, clearing the local drive of data, and re-installing the application multiple times. Any thoughts on what else I can try to fix this, or maybe a link to a previous version of DE that actually works?
