Also I get an pop-up error when I connect my Reader -- apparently a USB driver issue on the Drive/drives (maybe the memory cards?). Everything appears to work but the error is obnoxious every time I plug it in. Any tips or direction wrt that problem?
Hi, I just got a PRS505 for my wife to read on (I am currently using a Jetbook). Calibre is a great tool for managing the Sony reader. I imagine the only reason I need the Sony software at this point is to authorize the reader for DRM'd books and for firmware updates.
