SOURCE: problem with didj

QUICK Summary:
- Download and install "Leapfrog Connect" manually.
- Wipe/reset your DIDJ (maybe...)
- Install the free game.

LONG Summary:
Like most people here on the forums and question boards, the didj hung or failed to download the update: "Download failed. Please try again."
I found that the .EXE from the CD, created a folder in the C drive "C:\Program Files\LeapFrog\log", where the file name was "Sniffer_*date*_*time*.log" Example: Sniffer_090102_1916.log
In this log file, there were two references to the remote files it had to download (in the display window, it says 101 Mb. So the two files below add up to about that much):
http://download.leapfrog.com/leapfrogconnect/PC/didj/DidjPlugin.exe (78Mbs)
http://download.leapfrog.com/leapfrogconnect/PC/UPCInstaller.exe (25 Mbs)
The DidjPlugin.exe is the "Leapfrog Connect" installer, while "UPCInstaller.exe" is the free Jetpack Heroes game.

I cancelled the hung or timed out program launched from the CD, rebooted the PC, and then proceeded to download these two files manually.
After downloading these two files, I double-clicked each one. There was no dialog box or confirmation or license agreement page, destination folder, etc, etc, etc. This was a 'silent' installation, with
no prompts (save for the Windows security prompt: "Are you sure you want to run ...exe?"
I then proceeded to wipe the handheld (because it was stuck on "Downloading Update, please wait...).

Launch Leapfrog Connect:
1) Press the "Ctrl + Shift + R" keys in sequence and hold them down.
2) This should open a window that says "Connect the device you would like to reset".
3) Connect the Didj.
4) Eject the Didj when done.
5) Recreate your player profiles on the Didj and connect again.

I could be wrong, but wiping the didj did not erase the free game. I don't remember, but there was a point to sync the didj and then the game was there... Anyways...
After restarting the didj and creating a new profile, connecting to Leapfrog Connect, the didj should be good to go.

I do have a couple questions:
Why only have a small 5Mb self-extracting installer on the CD? Why not include the larger (75-78Mb) "Leapfrog Connect" on the CD?
Why not have the free game ALREADY installed on the didj? That way, when it comes out of the box brand new, you get to start playing right away...

Leap pad screen is broken on the inside. It still works but you can't see half the screen. It's not broke on the outside.


I had the same problem with my laptop. The help I received at the tech office was zero. Maybe you can buy a second hand pad with intact screen to fit. Techos will want you to buy a new pad.
