Sorry … I should have read the title of this topic for the make/model :-[

According to this forum thread:

and some of the comments on this page:

You need to upgrade the firmware on the 511EB to version 0.47 … it should then be detectable in Linux and OSX.

The links to the firmware on those pages no longer work … you need to go here:

And be SURE to get the correct firmware for either the non-touchscreen model, or the touchscreen model.

You will need to do this on a Windows PC, and any firmware update to your Elonex 511EB is done AT YOUR OWN RISK.
(so don’t blame me if you end up “bricking” your ebook reader)
