Question about Oregon Scientific Smart Globe Junior
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).
