So thanks all. And yes, you do have to have some Sony drivers to make it work it appears.

You are lucky. After much toing and froing I sort of got Adobe to grudgingly admit that ADE will not recognize the PRS 600 on a Mac OS and that the Sony Reader software is the only way to load the epub books on it. It's not fatal to me - just the principle of the thing. They advertise that ADE recognizes the reader natively, they also provide a Mac OS version of the program. Nowhere does it indicate the additional limitations of the Mac OS version. Since its freeware I can't complain too much but it seems a little half-assed to me.
