Hangs

Dear sir/madam,
It appears that the sony prs 505 continually hangs and on checking the disk using chkdsk it appears that the database folder is corrupt.

I cannot run chkdsk /f as it states that the folder is in use by another app.

Any ideas as to how fix this or reformat / reinstall the complete system please?

Thanks

You can refomat from the device itself... under Advanced there is an option to reformat but it will wipe the reader of content

I have had windows ask to scan my reader memory before and I never let it.

If you are not having any problems getting books onto your reader or in using the reader, then I would not worry about letting chkdsk look at the memory.

If you still want to run chkdsk, then make sure that your ebook apps, e.g., SOny, Caliber or whatever you are using are closed down. That mey be the reason you get the error.

sincere thanks for postings thus far - unfortunately I cannot access the menus - the screen hangs on "setting up" phase and never makes it to the menus

all fixed the issue by:

a) using mac os dsk utility i verified and repaired the sony disk
b) reassembled the folders as database folder had moved
c) deleted some corrupted files to trash and force trashed the items

thanks all
