After reading this thread, I have downloaded and installed the 0.4.27 version and find that it runs incredibly slower on my machine than did the previous version I had installed. I realize that it does a lot more, but it takes a longer time from when I click on the Convert ebooks icon to when the dialog actually opens up, and then takes a while from screen to screen.
Is this standard or could it be local to my machine?
Another question -- I didn't uninstall the SonyConnect usb driver because I still want to be able to use that software to upload books to my reader. Might this be causing the slowdown?
