Question about Kobo E-reader Touch 2gb, Wi-fi, 6in - Silver

2 Answers

My computer tells me I need new usb drivers for my kobo touch. Anyone know anything about this issue?

Trying to start fresh so I did a factory reset using the 'pin' method and downloading www.kobosetup.exe. I double click the setup file and get (another) new kobo desktop. It syncs all my books, then tells me to plug in my kobo using the provided usb cord. When I do that I get a message to the effect that the USB Drivers are corrupted, and then the whole lot 'freezes' in Sleep Mode. Any help available re: KOBO USB Drivers?

I dont know how to install the firmware for my mp4 i really need help


Hello,

Do you have the CD for the SMPK8858 ?

Then put the CD into the CD drive or DVD drive of your computer and explore the CD, for the firmware update look under:
\Firmware Upgrade tool\ConsumerUpdate 3.1.2.0\setup.exe
1. explore or double click folder Firmware Upgrade tool
2. explore or double click folder ConsumerUpdate 3.1.2.0
3. run or double click file setup.exe: this will start the installation of the update software on your computer.

After the installation of the setup.exe file, run the firmware update program to start the update for your player.


Most Sylvania players will have a CD provided. When you don't have it, download the driver (a zip file) from Curtis:
http://www.curtisint.com/html/CustService/Manuals/SYL_SMPK8858_DRIVER.ZIP
After the download unzip the file with WinZip or WinRar:
now look for the firmware installation program under
SYL_SMPK8858_DRIVER \ SMPK8858 \ Firmware Upgrade tool\ConsumerUpdate 3.1.2.0 \ setup.exe
Double click the setup.exe, the same procedure as when using the CD.

There is also a manual for SPMK8858 (a pdf file) online:
http://www.curtisint.com/html/CustService/Manuals/SYL_SMPK8858_EN.PDF

Garmin Nuvi 205 keeps saying no maps available ???


This is easy. You have to run your software, select the maps tap and then transfer maps to the device. Chances are good you uploaded a 2009 map on top of the 2008 map. The updater doesn't delete maps.

Your unl file only has one key, you have two maps loaded. Simple go into the garmin directory and delete the map file and the mapsupp file. You can easily find them because they are greater than 500 mb.

Then run mapinstall (google for the file). This will install your most current map to the Nuvi. You are back in business.

I just purchased registry defender on line,and I can't instal the program


Find where you downloaded it to on your machine. Use Start/Search if you don't remember.

If it's a zip file, right click to extract it to a folder. Then look in that folder for setup.exe

If it's an exe file, double clicking on it should either start the install, or extract it to another folder, where the setup.exe program should be found.
