Is this also the case with the PRS-505? It looks like all that calibre does is copy the files and create an xml file, or am I missing something? Does it actually need to talk to the reader itself?
It would be handy (and probably faster ... I haven't got round to benchmarking it yet) to be able to write to an SD/MS card directly, and have the tags & metadata.
