Santa was very kind to me this year, as he has treated me to an iRiver Story ebook reader.
Hopefully this will help me become less reliant to printed books!
The first thing I found was that the firmware had been quietly updated to version 1.5. The changes are significant enough to state them and say that I have been using them for a couple of days and are delighted by the changes, thank you iriver.
The major changes to the firmware include:
. New Firmware supports “Table of contents” of PDF or Epub file.
Please press”Option”button on PDF file.
Cutting blank space of PDF file
-. New Firmware supports the function, Cutting blank space of PDF file.
-. Please press Zoom button and control its size with arrow btton.
After the size control is done, please press Enter button
* Power Option & User font
-. New Firmware supports “Power Option” & “Changing font”(Office file, Text file, Memo, Diary)
-. Menu -> Settings -> Power Option or Change Font
The minor changes are for me equally important, the last one is especially welcome 🙂
a. Move Page
-. Please press “option” button and select “Move Page”
You can move the page with “arrow” button.
b. Fit to Screen of comic file
-. Please press “option” button and select “Fit to Screen on” to fit the screen size.
c. Auto Page Transition of comic file.
-. Please press “option” button and select “Auto Page Transition”
You can set auto-page speed within 3 ~ 99 seconds.
d. Dithering function of comic file

e. New Firmware support “GIF file” (by 2460*1948)
f. Playback time is imporved from 24hr(max) to 30hr(max)
The firmware can be downloaded from the iriver lounge or quickly from here!. Remember the .hex file always goes in the top level/root directory of the iriver story, the firmware update will start once you have disconnected from your computer.
What next? I need to sort out some content for the device… more on this later..
