If you haven't tried to download the update and failed yet then you haven't felt the burn. These units use batteries so fast that they require new batteries or the ac adapter when updating. If the power fails during any updating process then the internal firmware is trashed and you can try til you are blue in the face and the update will not work. I am dealing with a unit now that that was done to. If this is your situation then. Then here is my suggestion. Get yourself a 5 lb sledge hammer (any hammer will do). Place your VTech Reader on the ground and smash it to bits. Then vow never to buy another of these aggravating pieces of trash. Buy a children's level book and sit down and teach your own child to read.

Tried the recovery software on a SD card but it did not open the software


If you made the SD recovery on your computer through a sd slot or card reader it should work. You can't make the recovery sd through your vreader. Put it in the vreader while it is turned off, power it on and the vreader should start reprogramming. Then it will tell you to shut off your vreader and restart but make sure you take the sd card back out before restarting or it will just reprogram again, lol.

My Vtech V-reader freezes on calibration screen


I just found a solution to this: Turn off the vreader, then press & hold the help "?" button. While holding the "?" button, press power. My system bypassed the calibration step and booted correctly.

I got a vtech storio reader worked at 1st now is blue screen cant turn it of have 2 take batterys out have cleaned it and has new batterys


The blue screen seems to happen when you change the batteries (it's what happened to us). The blue screen indicates that there's a software problem, like when you boot up your computer and for some reason it freezes up. That software needs to be reinstalled. You'll lose anything that was saved on the v.reader, but at least you'll get it working again.

vtech could have made it a very simple problem to solve just by adding in their customer support: Blue Screen? follow these steps. But they don't, so here's how:

You'll need an SD card with at least 64mo of free space. If you want to use the one from your digital camera, transfert all of your pictures to the computer. Everything on the SD card will be erased.

Download the Recovery software from either link below (you can find both on the vtech website)

For the US version
http://contentcdn.vtechda.com/vtechkidsDownload/US/VReader/Tool/Recover/US-engRecoverCardTool.exe

For the Canadian english version
http://contentcdn.vtechda.com/vtechkidsDownload/CA-eng/VReader/Tool/Recover/CA-engRecoverCardTool.exe

This is the link the the website page itself:
http://www.vtechkids.com/download/ca/en

Run the program and follow the instructions (at least those are clear and easy to follow). Mine worked fine after that.

Hope that solves your problem.

WHY I CANT FIND THE RIGHT SITE TO DIWNLOAD GAMES FOR MOBIGO


If I'm right, you need the Learning Lodge Program to do that. Downloaded from website. That's how I did it with my sons Innotab and the other one with his VReader. http://www.vtechkids.com/brands/software/mobigo

My v.reader is stuck in engineering mode how do i fix this?


You have to reset your vreader. To do this, remove all batteries and any story cartridge you may have in your device. Then hold the power button for 5-10 seconds. If this doesn't work the vreader needs to be returned :(. I hope this helps.
