Newbie, and duplicating books on the reader and SD card

I just got the PRS-505 and as soon as I plug my reader to my desktop it starts to install all of my books, with eBook Library (ver. 2.5.00.09170) to both both the reader and the SD card. Then I get an error I have no more room when my SD card is 16Gb.

How do I stop the automatic synchronisation between my Library and my Reader?

I think you need to have the reader connected before you'll be able to see the "Sync" settings, as they're associated with/under the reader icon. If so, then it should just be a matter of clearing the checkboxes?

Smile All check marks have been cleared

I have cleared the check marks and still it synch to both reader and SD. Somewhere on this forum I read that you can stop synch, is that the only way by unchecking the boxes.

eLibrary that came with the unit is not the best, can you suggest another program to handle my Library.

Thanks a lot.

You can check Calibre :
http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Calibre

It is, I believe, widely used and appreciated by Sony users on this forum.

You might just take the SD out, hook up, fix the settings, and then start over. I don't have a 505 so I can't proceduralize this idea.

I got a Sony PRS-505 for Xmas (Only just out here in ireland) and what i discovered about the sync is that it automatically syncs the computer library with the reader internal memory only.

When i copied a large collection of books that i had transferred with calibre onto the SD card in the reader into the library with the sync active it automatically strarted transferring the books to the reader main memory until it was full.

I just don't bother with the connect software anymore and use calibre for all my book work.
