@urbie,

Those settings look OK to me, as well. Just in case we're missing something very obvious... After setting all those Calibre preferences, these are the detailed steps you need to take to see the new Collections on the PRST1.
  1. Make sure Calibre is open.
  2. Switch on the PRST1.
  3. Connect the PRST1 to the PC with USB cable and press the 'Data Transfer Button'
  4. Wait for Calibre to run through all its connection routines, i.e wait for the Jobs indicator (bottom right of Calibre status bar) to finish spinning. You should also see a message 'Connected Sony Reader' in the status bar.
  5. Safely disconnect PRST1 from Calibre using the 'Eject device' option.
  6. PRST1 will probably have a popup notice on screen 'The Reader is unable to charge ...' Press OK.
  7. Unplug the USB cable.
  8. From the PRST1 Home screen select Collections. There should be 1 Collection for each Calibre tag found in the books on the PRST1 (plus the 3 Sony default Collections at the top).

@jacky_w
Thanksalot. Executing all the points you mentioned didn't succeed but it delivered a possible cause for the problem. As I understand you well, Calibre should recognize and connect to the PRS-T1 automatically. That doesn’t happen, no “connected to PRS-T1” in the statusbar when i plug in the reader. Until now I connected the device by Folder connect.
Did some research in advanced options:

Looking for devices...

Devices possibly connected: None

Get information to set up the user defined device

USB Vendor ID (in hex): 0x054c
USB Product ID (in hex): 0x05c2
USB Revision ID (in hex): 0x0226
Windows main memory vendor string: SONY

Windows card A vendor string: SONY
Windows card A ID string: PRS-T1__SD
Windows card A vendor string: SONY
Windows card A ID string: PRS-T1__SETTING
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Seems Calibre receives reader specific information but yet doesn’t recognize. Device Plugin ? ( Of course I enabled the Sony PRST1 plugin)

Finally solved

Thanks Jacky_W Your post gave me a hint in the right direction. Fiddled around with different plugins and eventually the reader connected as “User defined USB-device” . Better but not good yet. Reinstalled Calibre, still the same. Finally deinstalled Sony Reader and all instances of Calibre (also in users/appdata/roaming ) and reinstalled Calibre again.
Did the wellknown, usual settings and guess what……..the reader connected automatically as “Sony Reader” and in “Device” a collection is present. Hurrah, hurrah. Thanks all for the joined thinking, posts, advises, remarks.

Square brackets works with tags. However, I would like to exclude some series from creating collections on my Sony Reader PRS-t2. Here brackets doesn't seems to work.

Can anybody help?
