Registering Your eBook Device




Turn On Your eBookwise eBook Device

To turn on your eBook device:

1. Press the Power button once, which is located on the lower right side of your eBook device.

2. When the eBookshelf appears on the screen, proceed with connecting and registering your eBook device.

 


Connect Your eBookwise eBook Device to the eBook Network via Phoneline or USB


Before using your eBook device and buying eBook Editions, you must register it by connecting to the eBook Network through a phoneline or USB.

Using the Phoneline Connection
:

Open the tab on the top of your eBook device and connect one end of the phoneline cord to your eBook device and the other end to a convenient analog phone jack.

Note:
When you connect your eBook device to a phoneline, make sure it is a normal analog line, not a digital line. Your eBook device cannot communicate through a digital phoneline and runs the risk of damage. Home phonelines are usually analog, but some or all lines in an office building, hotel, or similar location may be digital. The receptionist or office manager in most locations can tell you what type of line you are using.



When you use the phoneline, your eBook device dials a toll number to enable the registration process. (NOTE: this is a toll call, but typically only lasts a minute or two and should not incur significant charges.) If you are registering your eBook device from a location other than your home (for example, at work or a hotel), you may need to change the dialing prefix. To do this:

·Press the Power button to turn on your eBook device.

·Press the eBook icon on the upper left of the screen.

·Tap "Settings" on the Menu.

·Tap "Phone Connection."

·Select your settings by tapping the appropriate items for the dialing configuration you need.


Using the USB connection:


For USB connections utilizing your PC’s or Macintosh’s high-speed Internet access, please go to http://www.ebookwise.com/servlet/mw?t=help_USBdrivers&si=43 for additional information. You must download and install the eBook USB Driver software in order to use the USB connection with your eBook device.
