This might get a little trickier, but if you have the lrf files, just use the Librie software (there is a translation to english), and copy from the PC to the Device. I never used a card so i don't know if there is any dificulty with it

I have about 2,000 ebooks, mostly in text and PDF formats, or formats I can easily convert to txt
I would say the easiest method would be to "print" the texts to Lrf files.

The librie printer allows you to just paginate the texts in Word, and print to a LRF file. The only disavantage is that the page is static and you can't change the text size.

..any issues with the firmware being hacked to English. Is it easy to resize the fonts to fit more text in the display?
I have the Librie for some time and it never gave me any problem after i turned it to English.

If you want to change text size you will have to use librie toolbar (convert a webpage to lrf but big file size), Book Creator (the most complete program, requires windows language to be set to japanese to work), Book Designer (works OK, but can also be a little dificult).

Also, I know the Librie uses Memorystick media. Up until a couple of years ago, memorysticks were limited to 128 mb. Does the Librie use the newer Memory Sticks that can go to 4 gb?
I read in the yahoo group of using 1 G cards, but it would be best if you looked there and asked around for any updates
