How to load fb2 ebooks onto PRS+ Reader?

Probably a dumb question, but searching for a while turned up nothing so: I finally managed to flash my 300 with the latest PRS+. It says there is a built-in fb2-to-ePub converter. How do I load Russian fb2 books so I can read them on my 300? Reader Library won't transfer when I drag the file from pc folder to Reader tab; tried copying file directly to 'books' folder on the Reader but it doesn't show up. PRS+ website didn't have the answer anywhere obvious. Anybody? Thx!

Connect your Sony to your PC/Mac
IM of Sony-PRS should show up as removeable media "READER"
Copy any fb2 file to the reader.

Disconnect

use "Browse-Folder" to navigate to your fb2 file, it should be shown there mark/tap/open it as any other book.

The internal fb2-epub converter will process the file (create an epub version) and open this epub for you.

Makes this any sense to you?

Mark

Got it--makes complete sense too! Debating using the internal conversion or batch-converting on a pc (to epub) so the files appear in the menu and don't have the opening delay.
