No the reader should scan your card and pickup all files in any folder. Except the root folder, where there is a file number limitation.

The Sony Reader doesn't handle Word documents. Try saving them as RTF.

File Formats
Q) What File formats are supported natively and can be put directly on a Memory Stick or SD memory card?
A) With the Sony Reader you can take a file from your PC to an SD or Memory Stick™ media card and read on the Sony Reader the following file types:

TXT
RTF
PDF (Unencrypted)
BBeB (Encrypted and Unencrypted)
JPEG
GIF
BMP
PNG
MP3 (Unencrypted)
AAC (Unencrypted)

We recommend using the CONNECT™ Reader Software to import and transfer files to the Reader, as it will enable faster page turns and re-sizing on the Reader itself. We have also included the ability to import Microsoft Word files to the device. The CONNECT Reader will convert the Word document to RTF during the import process as long as the user has Microsoft® Word on the PC (this happens behind the scenes).
Microsoft fiddles with the Word format every release of Office, so trying to support it is hitting a moving target.
