Franklin makes these core applications available from the
Installation CD and with each OS download:
The Franklin Reader application opens and navigates books formatted as Franklin Universal Binary (*.fub) files. Use Franklin
Reader to read Bibles, reference material, dictionaries, translators and other books.
The Mobipocket Reader opens and navigates eBooks, eNews
and eDocuments. The downloaded files must be sent to the
eBookMan device, during which time they are converted for
viewing on the Mobipocket Reader.
Should you prefer to listen to a book, you can do so with
Audiobook Player. Audible® software powers the audio book listening features of eBookMan. You must download Audible
Manager from www.audible.com to transfer audio books to
your eBookMan.
The Music Player application enables you to listen to downloaded music. The Desktop Manager converts MP3 files to an
eBookMan music format before moving the files to the device.
eBookMan stores personal information in several programs.
Address Book organizes contact information, Date Book tracks
appointments, ToDo Book lists tasks by priority, and Memo Book
enables you to enter notes. Through IntellisyncTM for eBookMan,
you can synchronize your personal information to Microsoft®
Outlook®.
Other applications include Voice Memo and Calculate. Voice
Memo lets you record memos, and the calculator (Calculate)
enables you to solve math problems.
After you install the OS and core applications, you can download content and other applications that you want to use in your
eBookMan. Many companies on the internet provide applications and content that run on eBookMan. For more detailed

Chapter 2. eBookMan® Desktop Manager
3. Managing & Synchronizing Content
This chapter describes using the Desktop Manager to manage
content and applications using the directory structure, synchronize personal information between organizer applications on
eBookMan and organizer applications on your PC and synchronize new content and applications between your PC and your
device.
Managing Files in the Desktop Manager
Use the Desktop Manager to store all content and applications
for eBookMan. Some applications can be used without content.
For example, you can use the calculator (Calculate) without
content. Other applications require content. For example, the
Franklin Reader requires eBooks formatted as Franklin
Universal Binary (*.fub) files. Before you use the Franklin
Reader, you must download an eBook and move it to
eBookMan.
File Types
eBookMan recognizes most PC files. However, not all file types
can be used in your eBookMan device. For example, video clips
such as *.vgm can only be used with a program that runs *.vgm
files. Files that are not recognized will not be transferred to
eBookMan. File extensions may be in lower- or upper-case
characters.
Content is any file that must be associated with an application to
open it. Content files include, but are not limited to, the following
types:
.htm or .html HyperText Markup Language file
.mp3
Music file
.txt
Text file
.fub
Franklin Universal Binary; the file extension for
Franklin Reader books
.prc
A file formatted for handheld devices
.pdb
A file formatted for handheld devices
eBookMan® User’s Guide
See also:
For definitions of
file types, see
“Appendix D.
Glossary” on
page 212.
39
Applications are self-contained programs that may require content to run. Application files include the following types:
.seb
Secure eBookMan binary; most application and
content files downloaded from the Franklin Web
site use the *.seb file extension
.fxe
Franklin executable
Other file types are generated while using programs in
eBookMan. For example, *.bmark files are created when you
add bookmarks in the Franklin Reader. These files are synchronized when you click
.
Directory Structure
Important!
Cookies must be
enabled in your
browser to download content from
the Franklin Web
site.
To find instructions on enabling
cookies, go to an
Internet search
engine and enter
“enable cookies.”
By default, eBookMan content is stored in the C:\Program
Files\Franklin Electronic Publishers\eBookMan Desktop
Manager\Data\Contents directory.
Note: If you designate a different directory during download,
the Data directory and its subdirectories are placed
there.
All files are downloaded and stored in the Contents folder. By
default, the Data folder is also the place from which all files are
synchronized (the sync folder). The Desktop Manager creates
three folders under the sync folder: Contents, Audible, and
Library.
You can change the location of this folder by clicking
File|Change Sync Folder and specifying a new folder location.
Note that when you change the sync folder, the original directories remain. Use this feature to set up multiple eBookMan
devices from one PC.
The Contents Folder
Use the Contents folder to synchronize files between your PC
and eBookMan by clicking
. When you click
, the
Desktop Manager compares the files on your eBookMan to files
in the Contents folder of the Desktop Manager. If the files on
your eBookMan are more recent, the Desktop Manager copies
the more recent files from eBookMan to the Contents pane on
the PC and then copies the more recent files from the Contents
pane on the PC to your eBookMan.
40
Chapter 3. Managing & Synchronizing Content
If you save content files in other directories, you must move or
copy the file or files to the Contents folder before synchronization.
To copy a file to the Contents folder, locate the file in the
Contents pane of the Desktop Manager and do one of the following:
•
Right-click on the file name and select Copy to Contents
Folder
or
• Highlight the file name and click File|Copy to Contents
Folder.
Keep only files that you sync often in the Contents folder. Once
files are synchronized, store them to the Library folder.
The Library Folder
Use the Library folder to store, organize, backup, and restore
files after you sync them to eBookMan.
You can store and organize files by moving them to the Library
folder. To move a file to the Library folder, locate the file in the
Contents pane of the Desktop Manager and do one of the following:
•
Right-click on the file name and select Move to Library
Folder
or
• Highlight the file name and click File|Move to Library
Folder.
Note: When you move a file to the Library folder, the file no
longer appears in the directory from which it was
moved.
You can organize files in the Library folder by creating subdirectories. Consult your Windows documentation for more information on creating and using folders.
Always backup content files and applications by moving them to
the Library folder after you synchronize. You also can keep a
copy of all files in the Contents folder.
If you lose data or an application becomes corrupt, you can
restore the information to eBookMan from the Library folder.
eBookMan® User’s Guide
41
To restore files to eBookMan, follow these steps:
1. Move all files from the Library back to the Contents folder.
2. Click
.
The Audible Folder
The Desktop Manager uses the Audible folder to administer
tasks from AudibleManager®. Do not alter or delete the contents
of this folder or its subdirectories.
Note: Audible files are added to and deleted from eBookMan
through AudibleManager® only.
Deleting Files
See also:
For more information on removing files from
eBookMan, see
“Deleting Files”
on page 83.
To delete a file from eBookMan, you must remove the file from
both the eBookMan device and the Desktop Manager.
1. From the Desktop Manager, locate the file in the Device
pane.
2. Right-click on the file you want to delete.
3. Click Delete.
Click No to cancel the deletion.
4. Click Yes at the confirmation dialog box.
When you delete a file, a message "File has been deleted"
appears.
The file no longer exists on the eBookMan, but the file remains
in the Desktop Manager. If you sync by clicking
, the file will
be copied back to your eBookMan device. To avoid this, you
must delete the file from the Contents pane in the same manner.
Note: When you delete a file from the Contents pane, it is
removed permanently from that location on your PC.
If you mistakenly delete a file from the PC and the file
remains on your eBookMan, you can restore the file to
your PC by synchronizing.
42
Chapter 3. Managing & Synchronizing Content

options it offers.
eBookMan gives you the choice of writing your data or tapping it
on an onscreen keyboard.
Handwriting
Natural handwriting is the recognition system that eBookMan

input simple, accurate and fast by supporting more than one
way to write most characters. All writing must be entered in the
appropriate section of the Handwriting area, located at the center of the Control Pad.

the Letter input area (
), punctuation in the Punctuation input
area ( ), and numbers in the Number input area (

draw an “a” start here
and write the character left to right.
• Lift the stylus, and the character appears in the data entry
field.
Always write in lower case, as displayed in the Handwriting
Guide. If you want upper case letters to display, write the
stroke for shift or caps lock before writing the letters you
want to capitalize. For more information about functions, see
“Writing Functions” on page 89.
Natural handwriting also recognizes simple strokes for backspace, carriage return and space, as well as shift and cap
lock.
6. Write the stroke for a space.
Place the pointed end of the stylus in the center, left side of
the Letter input area and draw a line straight to the right.
A space appears in the data entry field.
7. Write the letters for the word you want. For example, write
“walk.”
When you complete the strokes, the characters you entered
appear in the data entry field. The Handwriting area does not
change. Always write each character in the center of the
appropriate Handwriting area.
If the character is composed of more than one stroke, you
see interim results on the screen. For example, when you
write “k,” an “l” may show on the screen before the “k”
appears.
8. Write the stroke for a space.
9. Write the next words you want. For example, write “in the
park”.
10. Write the stroke for a period.

Searching within an eBook
Franklin Reader enables you to search for words or phrases
within an eBook. The search method varies by location in the
program and in the eBook. The basic search methods include
Lookup, Quick Search and the Search screen.
Lookup
The Lookup feature provides a quick way to find items in a list. It
is used best when you know the list item (for example, headword, chapter or section) you want. To use the Lookup feature,
follow these steps.
1. Go to a list in an eBook.
For example, tap
to go to the Outline.
2. Write the characters of the list item one at a time in the
Handwriting area or tap them on the onscreen keyboard.
The characters you enter appear in the Lookup field at the
bottom of the screen.
The highlight automatically moves to the first list item starting
with those characters.
Note:
Capitalization and
punctuation are
not necessary for
Lookup.
Lookup for the
letters “ps”

Chapter 7. Franklin Reader
If you enter a series of letters, the program searches for
them in sequence. When it encounters a letter for which
there is no match, it highlights the first list item with the last
matched letters.
When you delete characters, the Lookup backs up to the
previous match.
2. Tap the item you want to select it.
Note: The Lookup feature is available in List view only.

message appears stating
that the maximum available
Universal Serial Bus (USB)
power has been exceeded.
Solution
•
Disconnect one or more
of the devices attached
to your USB port.
•
Re-connect your
eBookMan device to
your PC.
•
Restart the Desktop
Manager on your PC.
Helpful Hint

The eBookMan Device
Problem
Solution
I have to tap slightly offcenter on the icons in the
Launcher to open the
application or file. How can
I fix the screen?
Your eBookMan screen
needs to be re-calibrated.
To correct the calibration,
do the following:
Helpful Hint
Re-calibrate your screen
whenever it responds poorly to your stylus input.
1. Tap
to go to the
Launcher screen.
2. Tap
to view the
Launcher menu.
3. Tap Pen Calibration.
The word “Calibrate”
appears on the screen.
4. Using the stylus, tap in
the center of the
crosshairs (+) as they
show up on the screen.
When I press the On/Off
button, my eBookMan
device beeps but does not
turn on. What’s happening?
224
This usually occurs only
when the batteries need to
be replaced.
•
Reinstall 2 AAA batteries paying close attention to the markings in
the battery compartment. Press both batteries firmly into place and
close the battery door.
Appendix
Place the negative side of
the battery next to the negative terminal marked with
a “-”, and the positive side
of the battery next to the
positive terminal marked
with “+”.
Problem
Solution
I’m having difficulty getting
my eBookMan device to
understand my handwriting
input. Where can I go for
help?
You need practice with
“natural handwriting.”
I am having a hard time
writing letters. Is there
another way to enter data
in the eBookMan?
An onscreen keyboard is
available for most data
entry screens.
How do I make new entries
in the eBookMan Address
Book? When I tap on the
“abc” box, nothing happens.
1. Tap New.
The Edit Address
screen appears.
•
•
Tap
and select
Handwriting Guide on
the menu to see how to
write letters, numbers
and punctuation marks.
To see the onscreen
keyboard, draw a line
straight up and out of
the Handwriting area.
Helpful Hint
To learn more about using
the natural handwriting feature, please refer to
“Entering Data With
Natural Handwriting” on
page 87.
Play the Stalagmite game
and you can quickly master
Natural Handwriting.
To learn more about the
onscreen keyboard, please
refer to “Using the
Onscreen Keyboard” on
page 91.
2. Tap next to the field in
which you want to enter
data and start writing in
the Handwriting area.

Problem
I forgot my password for
my eBookMan device.
What can I do to access
my data and content?
Solution
Helpful Hint
If you forget your password, you must perform a
hard reset. This will clear
the old password, but will
also remove the operating
system and all your data
from the unit. Please follow
these steps to perform a
hard reset:
Keep a written copy of your
password in a place where
you can find it easily.
Remember: When you
perform a hard reset, any
data entered after your last
synchronization will be lost.
1. Press and hold the
On/Off button while
pressing the reset button on the back of the
unit with the end of a
paper clip.
2. Release the On/Off button.
The eBookMan beeps and
the Tour screen appears.
3. Connect your device to
your PC and turn it on.
4. Open the eBookMan®
Desktop Manager and
click
.
Note: Data from your
organizer applications is stored in the
Contents folder during a synchronization. Only the data
that was in your unit
when you last performed a synchronization is transferred to your device.
226
Appendix
Synchronize often so that
your files are always
backed up on your PC.
Problem
I inserted a
MultimediaCard (MMC)
into my eBookMan device
but I don’t see any icon on
the Launcher. How do I
access the content on the
MMC card?
Solution
•
•
•
•
Why does my MultiMedia
Card (MMC) only store
music files?
Check to see if the content is in eBookMan by
opening the appropriate
content application. The
title may not include an
icon.
Make sure the MMC
card is inserted properly. The gold contacts
must be facing up and
towards the unit.
Check to see if the gold
contacts are dirty. For
cleaning information,
please refer to the manufacturer’s instructions.
If your eBookMan operating system is older
than version 1.05 you
must perform a soft
reset. To perform a soft
reset, gently press the
reset button on the back
panel with the end of a
paper clip.
Helpful Hint
To check the version number of your eBookMan
operating system, tap
at the Launcher screen
and then tap About.
To avoid resetting your unit
each time you insert an
MMC, it is best to update
both your Desktop
Manager and your
eBookMan operating system. For free updates, go
to www.franklin.com/
ebookman, click on the
link to eBookMan, then
click on What’s new. Click
on the link to download the
latest Desktop Manager.
Once the Desktop
Manager is installed on
your PC, click
Web|Download
Applications from the
Desktop Manager to get
the latest version of the
operating system.
Your Desktop Manger is
older than version 1.12
and your eBookMan operating system is older than
version 1.05.

227
Problem
Solution
An application on my
eBookMan device is not
responding. What should I
do?
There could be a number
of reasons why the application may have stopped
responding.Try the following.
•
Stop the application in
File Manager. For
details, see “Opening
and Closing Programs”
on page 72.
•
If this does not resolve
the problem, tap
and then tap Restart
System.
•
Why are files I remove
from my eBookMan device
never removed permanently from the unit?
To remove a file permanently, you must delete it
both in your device and on
the PC. Otherwise, the file
will be re-loaded onto your
eBookMan device during
the next synchronization.
•
228
If your unit still does not
respond, reset your
device. For details, see
“Resetting the Device”
on page 64.
For more information,
see “Deleting Files” on
page 42.
Appendix
Helpful Hint
Problem
Solution
If I tap Restart System at
the Launcher menu will I
lose all my data?
No. When you tap
and
then tap Restart System
at the Launcher, all data in
memory is retained.
However, it is recommended that you backup and
synchronize your data prior
to a restart of any kind.
I see “OK” at the bottom
right of the screen, but
when I tap the screen or
try to write nothing happens.
The indicator at the bottom
right of your Launcher
screen is the memory indicator. What you’re seeing
is not “OK” but “Zero K”
meaning that your device
is out of memory.
•
Use the end of a paper
clip to gently press the
Reset button located on
the back of the unit.
Helpful Hint
It is best to close applications as you finish using
them. To see the applications you currently have
open, select File Manager
on the Launcher menu.
You can close applications
from the File Manager
screen.
