I have no idea where to find an answer to this question, so i'll just throw it here hoping i'm not making anyone mad.
I've had an iRiver Story e-book reader for some time now; i think i got it as a present when it first appeared on the market and it's been working flawlessly since then. I mainly used it to read the books which were included on the SD card or various personal projects (PDFs, EPUBs, .txt etc.), to listen to music or to view photos.
The problem is that one day, about two or three months ago, it just stopped reading any document type except texts (.txt). If i try to open any kind of PDF or EPUB files it throws a "Failed to open file!" error and it even freezes for a period of time afterwards. It does this with all files, even those bundled with the device.
I tried looking everywhere on the web but to no avail! What's worse is that iRiver stopped making these a while ago and it also doesn't offer service anymore for it. It`s a shame, really, because it can still carry a full 6 hours of reading after all this time and it's also free of useless perks like wi-fi or touchscreen.
The FW is 1.61 and the S/W platform is 0.8.10, if it's helpful to anyone.
Thank you in advance for any advice regarding this mysterious issue!
