Ebook Nostalgia redux

After 24 hours of using REB 1100 with the installed card, the following two things became apparent (and, in short term, effectively, deal breakers):

  • Each time REB 1100 is turned off and then on, it rereads the contents of the media card. Takes about 1-2 mins.
  • It "forgets" the current book and the current location in it, and restarts the device "looking" at the beginning of some book it thinks to be the "first".

The former is tolerable. The latter makes use of media cards almost infeasible.
