Errors transferring books to sony PRS-650

Hi there!

I'm having great difficulty transferring EPUB books to my Sony PRS-650. The transfer rate is painfully slow apparently because of paging errors. I'm succeeding in moving books across but something is not right.

I hope someone can help.

(I get no such problems - on the same PC - when I transfer MOBI books to my Cybook Gen3).

The nitty-gritty details:
Calibre 0.7.20 running on Windows 7 Home Edition (64 bit)

Copy of Calibre error log:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(13, 'Permission denied')

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\device.py", line 67, in run
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\device.py", line 338, in _upload_books
File "site-packages\calibre\devices\usbms\driver.py", line 186, in upload_books
File "site-packages\calibre\devices\usbms\cli.py", line 60, in put_file
IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied

try reformatting the reader memory (there should be an option for it somewhere in the reader menus)

Thanks Kovid.

I've finally got Calibre to transfer all my books to the sony prs-650 without errors and resaonably quickly.

In case anyone else is experiencing a similar problem, here's what I did:

1. Reformatted the reader's main memory (following your suggestion). On the PRS-650 it's under Settings>Initialization>Format Memory>Internal memory

2. Plugged the 650 into the PC and ran error-checking on the main memory (the READER partition).

3. Then tried plugging the 650 into USB socket at the *back* rather than the front (which I had been using up to this point).

4. Fired-up Calibre and got it to manually transfer about 180 books in blocks of 20.

5. Closed Calibre, ejected the 650, and voila - all the books and the collections based on series and tags were present and correct!
