Thank you very much for the program! I don't mind the large files, as I can buy a 1 GB micro SD card and load it with books.

I don't think sansas read images or video off the microsd cards, only music.

Thanks for this great app, i enjoy reading while i'm on the bus.

I have one minor issue. In my language (Albanian) we have the letter "ė" and "ē". Everytime i put a .txt or .pdf that is in albanian, those two letter are removed. For example, "mirė" ends up as "mir".

I hope you can fix this issue. Many thanks and keep up the good work.

Can you send me a sample text file and the name of the font you're using?

Default a txt file and another bug.

http://www.box.net/public/ucaztocxc3 here's the .txt file.

Also, i found something else.

When i open a .txt file with eBook, it truncates (eats) the last 1 to 2 line(s) of the text.

All is shown , but the last sentence or line is missing.

Anyone else experienced this.

Thanks.

Ok, I believe international character support is now working, and I've fixed the bug where it cut off the last page

Thanks for the swift reply and update.

All i have to say is that it works like a charm, intl support and there's not more cut off.

Many thanks.

Now, only if Sandisk would add .jpg or .png support and to scroll the pages with the scroller instead of next/prev.
But hey, luckily we got people like Jason who at least do what we might thought will never see; reading books on your sansa.

Thank you once again.

Though I see a thumbnail folder, it seems to create them on the fly, even if files are placed there. If seems like it would be just as fast or more so to select them from the file list though as scrolling through the thumbnails?

Default missing words...

Many times on the made book from this software there seems to be a bug where it misses some letters and even a complete word... for instance; In the book i downloaded from Project Gutenberg collection, How to speak correctly by Joesph Delvin, Ma.

The Book: CH. 1 Requirments of Speech Pg. 1

REQUIREMENTS OF SPEECH

Vocabulary--Parts of Speech--Requisites


It is very easy to learn how to speak and write correctly, as for all
purposes of ordinary conversation.


and with the software it turns out to be:

REQUIREMENTS OF SPEECH

Vocabulary-Parts of Speech-Requisites

It is very easy to learn how to speak and write correctly as for lpurposes
of ordinary conversation.

now for some reason all the letters on my sansa seems to be squished in the menus and playlists... just not spaced enough, i.e.,
TheEverlyBrothers - The Hits.
I dont know if these issues clash but im sure worth mentioning.

Thanks

I think I found the issue, it now adds a space where needed that aren't in the original file as it resizes it. I've also added drag-and-drop support. The new version is now available.

It's not related to the spacing in song titles, etc. I think that was something that was changed in a firmware update to make them scroll faster.

Default Hebrew support

I tried it with a Hebrew pdf file,
http://www.mincha.com/mincha%20ashkenaz.pdf ,
and the program displayed it in Latin letters, even if I selected a Hebrew font (Miriam). With another Hebrew font (Aharoni) I received an error, "Font 'Aharoni' does not support style 'Regular'."

Any ideas?

I did some testing by pasting the text from the PDF into wordpad and trying fonts (which gives the same results as the software). The first font appears to be an english font.

I don't know much about hebrew, I tried the "hebrew" font here

http://www.student.northpark.edu/pemente/hebfonts.htm

and it seemed to format better, though not the same. There seems to be many variants, I assume if you get the right one it will appear correctly

Thanks for taking a look at it. I'm not sure what's happening. The fonts seem to be mapping differently than the Adobe file. I'll keep working on it.

I finally figured out where to look in Acrobat to see which font was embedded. (Duh!) The file is using DavkaDavid, which is a proprietary font used by a Hebrew word processor. I'm told that even if I had that font, it wouldn't work with Word for some reason. Maybe eventually I'll find someone with the Davka software, and he'll be able to save the file in a font that does transport to Word (DavidD).

eReader.com makes software for reading ebooks for several different platforms. Think we could get them to make a version for the Sansa?
I used their free version for the PC. Pretty cool.

Very cool app, just one question is it common for the Sansa to not read sub dirs? Rather than grabbing the 001-100 folders I grabbed the root folder they were in.

With nothing in the root other than the folders it showed up blank (no sub dirs) if I put the bmp files out there then I only see the bmp again no sub dirs.

I tested changing one of the output BMP around to a 256 color bmp and it didnt work oh well but I could try some other settings.
