using the sony reader as an sd card reader?

i read on a post (can't find it now) that the sony reader itself could act as the card reader. i couldn't do it with the connect software so i installed libprs500 but i still can't do that.

is this not possible even with the libprs500. or am i just missing something silly.

You can use it as a card reader with libprs500, but from the commandline. It wont show up as a drive in windows explorer.

Open a terminal and type
Code:
prs500 ls -R /Data
to see the contents of the /Data directory.

prs500 --help for help on all the commands.

Should work in both. When installing libprs500 did you install the Device drivers? And do you have connect installed on the same machine?
