Its brand new and its not working

The leapreader reading and writing system pen doesn't respond to the book ive connected it to the laptop when I click on the download audio companion it doesn't do anything. Ive charged it until the green light came on and the battery icon indicated fully charged, but when I unplug it and plug it back in the battery icon shows its only half charged I don't know whats wrong with it. every time its connected to the laptop and I turn the leapreader pen on it keeps turning itself off.

SOURCE: The pen is not working

I think this is the same problem I had as well as ramongough who has a previous posting. I saw the reply to his from nicksdad and I did what he said and it worked. I suggest you try it. Here is the reply:

Remove the game cartridge, while holding down the button with the "?" turn the unit on. Then the screen should tell you to press the "A" to calibrate the stylus. Finish the calibration by touching the crosshair when it appears. After I did this everything was fine. Good luck .

Worked for me too. Best of luck,

SOURCE: leap frog tag pen won't work any longer.

I found that after replacing the batteries, the power button on the reader did not work. I did however have luck after I connected the Reader/Pen to the laptop, updated the s/w on the reader and updated the s/w on the laptop. Then the reader was able to interact with one of the books just fine.

My Pen drive is 1 Gb Transcend,When i format it show 4 Gb & Error

its probably a virus trying formating on windows 98 or on linux based system may work for u also check when the pen drive isnt connected properly or the usb port or connection is loose it may say a read only pen drive due to slow speed connection of pen drive to computer

Pen-Drive-stopped opening/`not responding-Coruupted or something

You can try the pen drive on another computer to see if the data is accessible.

Otherwise you may be able to get it working again if you format it. Formatting will erase anything that is already on it. Just right-click on it's icon in My Computer and chose format... If it still doesn't work after that then it has an electronic fault and will never work again. This can happen if the drive gets shocked by static electricity, or if it gets pulled out of the computer while it is reading or writting.
