Hi there.

To unfreeze it, you have to press the on and off switch and while pressing it, press the home button for about 10 seconds. That should unfreeze it.

Let me know what happens.


Thank you!

Lorraine,

Do not worry about the screen as nothing will happen to it. Try and get the battery somehow. On the rim of the ebook you will find a screw covered by a sticker. Unscrew it and the back plate will come off. Remove the battery. Wait a few seconds and reconnect the battery and all should be well after that. Do not forget to put the back plate again.

All the best.

Can I read a book on my Verizon Nexus 7 without connecting to wifi (and incurring charges?)


You can download ebooks to your tablet for reading offline. But the data rates for downloading the books still apply unless connected to wifi. Free Wifi is available at most fast food stores, libraries, and hotels. You can use these places to connect and download ebooks then read them at home.
It is also a good idea to turn on airplane mode whenever you do not want your device to use data as other applications (System updates, facebook, amazon apps, etc) will also use data even when they are not open on your screen, many will continue to run in the background.

I need a step to step guide on how to download a book to my iriver


  • In order to read ePub formatted eBooks on an iRiver Story, you can either SYNC the device with your Borders app or use Adobe Digital Editions. Simply connect your device, select 'Disk Mode' and then click on the 'SYNC' button in the lower-left corner of the Borders app.
  • If you have purchased PDF files, you will need to use Adobe Digital Editions to download and manage these files. Please ensure you have an Adobe ID entered in to Adobe Digital Editions prior to downloading the files fro your Borders eLibrary. You can obtain an Adobe ID here:
https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/membership/index.cfm?nf=1&nl=1&loc=en_us


TO GET YOUR PURCHASED BOOKS FROM YOUR E-LIBRARY INTO ADOBE DIGITAL EDITIONS:
  1. Sign-in to your account on the website using your email address and password. You will see the option at the top of the screen.
  2. Once you have signed-in, please click on 'My E-Library', which is also at the top of the screen.
  3. You will now be able to view your eBook library. On the right of each title in your library, below 'Open eBook' you will see a link 'Download Now (For Adobe Digital Editions users)'. Click on the 'Download Now' text for each book to download it, which will not cost you any further money.
  4. The downloaded file may ask you if you wish to open it with Adobe Digital Editions or save it to your file system.
  5. Please click on 'OPEN'.
  6. The eBook should now appear in your library in the program.

If you experience any problems downloading the eBook in to Adobe Digital Editions, you may need to save the file and then right-click on it and select 'Open With' and then manually select Adobe Digital Editions on the first occasion.

When you connect your iRiver device to the computer, Adobe Digital Editions will ask if you wish to authorise the device. This process is assigning your Adobe ID to the iRiver Story, which will allow you to transfer across your eBooks and then open them on the iRiver Story. Please click on 'authorise device' and then drag-and-drop your eBooks to the device by holding down the left mouse button and releasing it when on the iRiver Story, which will appear as the last item on the list in the left column as 'STORY'.

There is a black / grey shape on my screen - only had the ebook 4 months it has never left the house - what would this be?


Welcome to FixYa!

You have dead pixels on the screen.

These are the things that you can do:
  • If you are inside of the retailer's return policy timeframe, you may ask for an immediate replacement.
  • If you are within the iriver warranty timeframe, you may receive a replacement free of charge if the dead pixels number three or more. (There may be a charge if you wish to replace a player with two or less dead pixels.
  • If you are outside of the iriver warranty timeframe, please contact the shop where you purchased the player, or contact your local iriver shop.

Luckily, your iRiver Story has a 1 yr RTB warranty. So, just call the shop where you bought it and ask for a replacement. They will gladly replace it.

Thank you for using FixYa.
Have a great day.

I have a Sylvania SMPK4230 (4 GB), and I'm wondering what the eBook does. And if I am able to read books like I think, how am I able to download them onto it?


The manual is available here SMPK4230 Manual
The instructions for the ebook capability are on page 16.
Ebooks in text format, that is files with a .txt suffix are mentioned as being supported.

You can copy .txt files onto the device just as you can copy music or video files.
The player will display print on the screen for reading when you access those files.

I personally download ebooks to my computer and copy the ones i want to read on the go to my media player.

Other ebook filetypes are.lit, .htm, epub, and .pdf among others, but there is no mention in the manual if these are supported.

There are ebook conversion programs that you can run on your computer to convert to a type you can use.

My iriver ebook is frozen, what must i do to "unfreeze" it


Mine had the same problem.Try plugging it for charging.Even if the computer doesn't recognize the device, leave it so for atleast 20 mins. Hopefully, the 'charging battery' display would re-appear by then and your device will jog back to normal.
