Using Sony software (350) on two computers

Is there any problem with putting the Sony software (reader library) on a 2nd computer? With an eminent move (fingers crossed that house contract goes through), hubby and I will be apart for about a month. I've been using our laptop for my Sony but he will have it and I'll be stuck with the desk top for a while.

Also, although it doesn't pertain to Sony, I'd like to do the same things with Overdrive (which I use for library audio books).

Nope. I have it installed on three. You will have to install Adobe Digital Editions to read your DRMed ePubs, but I think you are allowed to register up to 5 installations of ADE. Just remember to unregister ADE from a computer when you get rid of it.

No, Sony Reader Library can read DRMed epubs fine and download library books as well. You don't need ADE.

Yes, there can be a minor problem.

Do not use the sync function in Sony Reader from two computers. Otherwise, things should work fine.

I stand corrected. You just have to input your ADE user/password before you can read the books with Sony Reader Library.

Thanks, all. I'll try that (if the house sells!).
