Trouble geting Reader to appear in Reader Software

I have a PRS-650 and have downloaded both Sony Reader software and Calibre. I turn on my reader and connect it to the computer with the supplied USB cable. It does not appear in the left side column as a Reader in the Sony Reader software. Also, in Calibre, it does not appear to be active when I try and send a book to the device.

What am I doing wrong? Do you have to register the device on the computer in order for it to be seen?

Regards,
Bill

Is your Reader turned on or is it turned off (not in sleep mode)?

Are you using the USB cable that came with the Reader? Another alternative is to try a different USB port on your computer.

The device should be seen without being registered first.

The device is turned on, and I have tried several ports. When the reader turns on it boots normally. When I plug in the Sony USB cord, it goes into charge mode. It cannot be seen in Wimdows Explorer or in Calibre or Sony Reader software. Even when fully charged it does not appear and shows at the top of the reader screen that a USB connection is present.

Regards,
Bill

Have you tried a different cable? Different USB port? Different computer?
