After tinkering with different memory cards in my Camera I tried the same thing with the reader. I had some cheap standard SD-cards and some Ultra II SD-Cards form Sandisk.
In my opinion, page turning times got a little quicker by using faster cards. I then tried an Ultra II Memory-Stick and again had the feeling that it was a little quicker than the SD-Card. Probably because Memory-Stick system is from Sony, so they can probably implement the hardware better.

Ok, here's the one that really wowed me:
Internal memory is usually faster than any external memory (see also buffer in cameras). I'm often extracting jpgs from pdfs and it takes about 7 secs to turn a page (go to the next picture) from an Ultra II Memory-Stick. When I placed the jpgs into the internal reader memory, I got down to 3-4 secs which is only half the time.

I'm not sure if that was obvious. I latently knew (at least from my camera where burst mode provides better rates with faster memory) but never tried before. So this might help others, too.

PS: Kartu, I think PRS+ is really awesome, too. (German usage manual uploaded)

prs 505 - lrf vs epub

Have been using the 505 for a year or so always converting to and loading the Sony lrf format. Recently loaded an epub formatted book and found the 505 handled all functions faster/more smoothly - font size chances, page jumping, etc.

Try to search on the Forum. I think the similar problem has been solved in the past few days.

Smile Battery Rundown and Touchscreen Problems

Hi all,

I just spent the entire weekend resetting and trying to figure out why my battery was running down so quickly. Eventually, my touchscreen was also giving problems.

Solution: Clean around the edges of the screen. Apparently when dust particles, other microscopic elements and other "crumbs" get between, it affects both battery and touchscreen. Did it and so far everything seems to be working okay.

I can understand the touchscreen thing, but how does that effect the battery?

The battery power is used partly by touch. When touchscreen is constantly being pressed, it is processing and therefore the battery is drained faster is there is the constant pressure. I have had full bars for the last 10 hours when I would lose one bar per 4 hours...

Check out their bags. They can be a bit pricey, but their build quality is exceptional. To me, they are worth the price as I will gladly pay for a high quality stylish bag to carry expensive gadgets. I currently use two of their bags (one for laptop and one as a day "manbag") and I love them. The bags are made in the USA (in SF) and many of them can be customized to fit your needs. Check out their muzetto bag (I'm looking to get this one myself). It is pricey, but it is also leather.

I'm not sure if this is the best place for the info, but I called Sony to ask what was the optimal size to create .pdf's for my PRS-300. They told me:

Width = 3.47 “
Height = 4.54 “


Hope this helps someone else!

Hi everybody. On the subject of a bag to carry your eBook, I use a small camera bag, which holds my eBook, Archos 5, Archos 704 and Nintendo DSi in the main pocket. The top net pocket holds a SatNav and bluetooth earpiece and the front outside pocket holds a Sony PSP. They are all held safe in this padded bag which is easily carried around.

Hope this helps someone.

Saved me having to buy another charger.
