I'm korean, and it doesnt support korean.........

It said "korean" under supported languages, but when I load a Korean epub file all the text are "??????" but PDF files with Korean words or txt fles with Korean words work fine.

I know I can change an epub file into a txt file, but why the hassle..? Shouldn't it support it?

Any help? (my firmware is up to date)

"Calibre" is the best thing for changing ebook formats.
And if you really want your migear to do some tricks, google "Skytex Primer" firmware. it will then even play movies.

well it still sucks,

i found that the reason why i cant read korean is because my migear doesnt have a korean font.

does anyone know how to install or shove a font into the ebook reader?


so much for "supports 18 languages including korean"

might get a refund...

You could install the firmware to turn it into a Skytex Primer. It certainly appears to have loads of languages to choose from. Korean may very well be amongst them. Certainly several Asian scripts are listed.

Good luck!
