Moving files from memory card to main memory

Is it possible to move a title from a memory card into the Reader's internal memory, on the reader itself? Or do I need to do it all while connected to a computer?

Related question: Which is better/faster -- reading a book from the internal memory or from the memory card, or doesn't it matter?

Does the Reader open the current book into some part of internal memory so there isn't any difference where the book is stored?

Thanks for this terrific forum -- it is a wonderful resource for us newbies (especially for those of us, like me, who don't actually own a reader yet!)

No. All you can do is, using the Connect software on a PC, delete the file from the memory card and then reload it into main memory (or vice versa, of course). No way to move or delete from from the Reader itself.

Speed-wise, there's no difference. Putting books in main memory gives you better battery life, and given the fact that books in main memory are compressed (those on a memory card aren't), you can store a LOT of books (100+ normal sized novels) in main memory.

You can drag/drop a file directly from a memory card to the Reader's internal memory (as HarryT says, using the ConnSoft), but that just makes a copy, it doesn't move it, so you'd have to manually delete the file from the card.

I know that's a piddlin' distinction, but there you are.
