Sony reader app horribly slow after transfering my book collection
I transfered my book collection, 5000 or so books, to the root directory of my external sd card of my rooted prst1.
Then the sony reader app on the device started indexing these books, (it took some hours!) and when it was done the sony reader app was so slow it was unusable.
Is there a way to have my collection on the external sd card without the original reader app starting to index it?
To clarify, I want to be able to have my collection on the device without them being visible in the original sony reader app.

I don't believe the reader is meant to hold that many books on the device. Why do you need all 5000 on it at once?

Try a reset and let it reindex. Used to work on my 600, but it is a different app. I had 4883 books on my 600 which could take an hour to index, but it worked fine once they were done.

If you're working with DRM-free ebooks, then don't use the default Sony Reader. Try Calibre, instead. Works like a charm and the automated collections feature is a God-send. You can also copy DRM'ed ebooks to your reader via Calibre but you would still need either Sony Reader for PC or Adobe Digital Editions to download the DRM'ed ebook.
One thing I've noticed with Calibre, indexing on the device appears to go by faster if I use Calibre to send the ebooks to the device than if I just use simple file copy to the internal memory. I reckon this is because Calibre already adds the ebooks to the device database so the device only needs to check if the files and database match.

same here, I use calibre to add the books to my device - sending them to the micro sd class 10 32gb. after unplugging the t1 it takes 2 minutes or so for the device to index (when you open the sd card slot you can see the little yellow led blink) after that everything runs at a good speed. but the device is much faster if using only the internal memory.
so it takes a view seconds longer to open a book on sd but reading is as fast as reading a book from internal memory...
my tip: every time you reboot your t1 or transfer books (so the sd card is unmounted from the device itself and mounted to your pc or mac) put it beside and wait untill the indexing is all done before starting to read.
