I kept getting the "there is no book data" message as well, and it was incredibly frustrating as there is not manual, no information online, and when I called Toys R Us, they just told me to return it.

What ended up working for me was to turn the pen on and point it to the area on the globe that says "Interactive Talking Globe", just above the menu area where you select the different functions (ie "country and ocean", "national anthem" and "major cities").

That changed the voice back to the original male version, and all of the functionality returned.

I hope that this helps.

Try resetting the unit and calibrate the screen. The problem is that the screen is not calibrated.

Simply subscribe online using the SmartGlobe™ Infinity software. There is no response when I touch the SmartGlobe™ Infinity with the SmartPen or the LED on the pen is flashing repeatedly.
Smart Globe will filter your results and update with current version App of SmartGlobe.

I get this error message when trying to update my daughters smart pen: 136 InitFunc_NFlashID_Error Format it,use our FAT


I was able to get one of these working that had a dead pen. I reset the pen (insert a pin in the side), and plugged it into a USB port on my computer. I then opened the smartglobe 3 software and it updated the pen. A couple times it failed to format the pen.

I had to switch the pen to another usb port and then it finally formatted and downloaded all of the info to it. It took a looooong time to update. Then it said it was updating the Clock. It then told me to disconnect the pen, but... I was wary of this because most usb devices require some kind of dismounting before you unplug something.

So instead of disconnecting the pen when it said to, I quit the smartglobe software and shut down the computer, without ever unplugging the pen. Once the computer was off I finally unplugged the pen from the usb cable. I turned off the pen and turned it back on. It then worked, (a guy came on and said something)! I think maybe there isn't a way to "eject" the pen properly, so shutting down might (big emphasis on might) allow the usb connection to disconnect successfully without corrupting the flash memory of the pen. Or I just got really lucky. Either way I'm happy! (And not about to update it again I might add).

Leap Frog Smart Globe Pen broke - which replacement pen do I order?


Hi, I just ordered 2 pens - the price was $5 per pen including S+H. I was told that the globe that we have ( smart globe, purchased in 2003 or so ) is a discontinued model so I just ordered an extra one just in case. The pens should arrive within 10-15 business days according to the costumer rep. Good luck!
