I was curious as to whether or not their are plans to add support for the newly released Sony PRS-900BC Reader. Mine came in the mail on the 24th and I have been eagerly awaiting Calibre support. Please let me know if I can do anything to facilitate the introduction of support for this device.

Thought I would add my 2 cents for support of the new Sony PRS-900BC.

If it will be a while, is there a way to use any of the other Sony PlugIns?

Thank you,
Jim

Straight from the SonyStyle website

* Image : JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP
* Unsecured Audio : MP3 (Non encrypted), AAC (Non encrypted)
* Unsecured Text : ePub, PDF, TXT, RTF, Micrsoft® Word, (Conversion to the Reader requires Word installed on your PC)

From what I can tell the 'special' directories are as follows:
Code:
\Documents (Had the PDF manual inside of it)
\database\media\audio (Had some example MP3s inside of it)
\database\media\books (Had some example EPUB format ebooks inside of it)
\database\media\images (Images go here)
\database\media\notepads (Contains any created notepad notes)
On the external media (AKA the SDCard and ProDUO card it seems to look like this:
Code:
\Sony Reader\database\
The only difference is the introduction of the Sony Reader folder as the base. The device seems also to autodetect any images regardless of where they are on the SDCard/ProDUO.


When connected VIA USB, There are 4 drives added:
(1) One is a read only drive ~10megs that contains the Sony Reader Library software downloader
(2) Another is the internal memory ~1.7gigs that is the default file storage
The are two are respectively the (3) SDCard slot and the (4) ProDUO slot


Also attached is the debug output. Thanks in advance for replies.


EDIT: Forgot to mention; I am running Windows 7 x64.

EDIT2: The screen resolution is 600(w) x 1024(h) as for the DPI, I can not find it anywhere >>.
