You call yourself a smartpen?

Have any of you had a Livescribe Echo Smartpen? Because I got one for my birthday, and from what I've seen so far, it's almost impossible to figure out because:

1) The info buttons in the interactive tutorial don't work regardless of how hard I tap them. (And yes, I know to tap them with my "smart"pen and not, say, my finger :P ) All the other buttons work just fine, but the info buttons don't.

2) Docking my "smart"pen to my computer supposedly automatically transfers notes to Livescribe Desktop, but it doesn't. The website said that it's recommended to plug it into a USB port on the back of my computer rather than on the side, but I don't have any on the back. Does this mean that I can't use my "smart"pen just because I was unlucky enough to buy a laptop with no USB ports on the back?

3) Similarly, my pen doesn't recognize the "computer" command to upload my notes to Livescribe Desktop, regardless of whether or not I write it legibly enough so that it actually says "Computer" and not "Computep" on the pen's screen, despite Livescribe Desktop claiming that the command works.

4) A screenshot of Livescribe Desktop in the tutorial shows some elements of the interface that seem to be missing from my copy. They should be here:

EDIT: ellaina02 helped me figure all of these out, but seriously, why don't they tell you step-by-step how to do all this stuff in the correct order?

Yup. :)

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...

For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
