you can't transfer ADE files without having it work on your computer, so you can at least read the ADE files on your computer as well as the reader.
Sure you need to the drm files to work in ADE on your PC in order to transfer them.
The point was that someone asked in another thread how you get them on the 700 since the person tried using the Sony library software and it *does not* work. So it's *not true* that if you can read it on the 700, you can/must with the *Sony software*. Though it's true you can read anything on your 700, on the PC, but you may need ADE.
I usually would not quibble about this, but for people that have access to drm-pdf's from their library (e.g. e-NYPL), it's important to know how to transfer them on the 700 and not try going through the Sony software.
