Oh my, help me

Greetings:

Just short of pulling my hair out I need some help. I connect my reader and purchase a book with the connect software program etc. The book downloads to my "library" and I drag and drop it into the player.

My question is:

where in god's name are these purchased books located on my PC...I cannot find them anywhere.

And...are they in some hidden format etc that makes them invisible to me. I consider myself very handy with PC's, but obviously finding these suckers has made me feel like I am using an abacus. LOL.

Directions anyone??

The books from the ConnStore are LRX format (that's the file extension for encrypted BBeB files). If you've been searching for LRF files then that's why you're having trouble finding them.

I can't remember exactly where they are stored offhand, but if you look in the C:\Program Files\Sony\CONNECT Reader\ (assuming you installed the ConnSoft on your C drive, under Program Files, of course) you'll find them in one of those sub-dirs.

They have really nasty file names, BTW, so don't let that throw you. And, yes, you can change the file name without affecting the Meta-Data that the ConnSoft and Reader see, so if you want to rename them for your merely human reference, I don't know of any reason you shouldn't -- I certainly renamed mine, moved them to another location too.

Click the little "i" icon at top right when reading a book and you will see the full file path.

In WinXP they are stored in "My Documents\My Books\CONNECT Reader" and the type is listed as "BBeB Secure Book" for the LRX extension.
