Manual copy through USB card reader
Since I am running 64-bit OSes (I dual-boot Linux and windows Vista), I can't use my PRS-500 unless someone comes out with a working driver (and that doesn't look like it will happen soon). My desperate idea for a workaround is to get a USB card reader and just copy the relevant files to the SD card. My questions:
1. Will Calibre detect the card through the USB reader in the normal way, that is, will it show up in the main interface, or will I have to manually drag & drop files as if it were a hard drive?
2. Is there a way to transfer metadata such as tags and collections without having to connect the PRS-500 itself?
