Hello. First off, thanks a ton for the work you're putting into this. I just picked up my Sony Reader this morning and this looks to be a great tool!

Anyway, I just thought I'd jump in here, as I'm having the same problem on Vista32 (haven't tried it on XP). I ran libprs v0.4.18 with my PRS-505 connected and it doesn't do anything. Just hangs. I ran 'prs500 df' under the command line and nothing happened - just a blinking cursor. I let it sit for a few minutes, hit ctrl+c, and this is what I got:

Code:
C:\Users\XXX>prs500 df
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "main.py", line 346, in <module>
  File "main.py", line 224, in main
  File "libprs500\devices\prs505\driver.pyo", line 217, in open
  File "libprs500\devices\prs505\driver.pyo", line 217, in open
  File "libprs500\devices\prs505\driver.pyo", line 217, in open
  File "libprs500\devices\prs505\driver.pyo", line 217, in open
  File "libprs500\devices\prs505\driver.pyo", line 217, in open
  File "libprs500\devices\prs505\driver.pyo", line 217, in open
  File "libprs500\devices\prs505\driver.pyo", line 216, in open
KeyboardInterrupt
Hope this helps!

Well that error means for some reason the routine that finds out which drive letter the sony reader is mounted on, is failing. It works for me, so in order to debug it, you're going to have to do a little work.

First, install python 2.5 from python.org
then install the following two packages
https://sourceforge.net/projects/pywin32/
then
http://tgolden.sc.sabren.com/python/wmi.html

Then open a terminal and start the python interpreter which should be something like
c:\Python25\python.exe

At the interpreter prompt type or paste the following commands
Code:
import wmi
c = wmi.WMI()
drives = c.Win32_DiskDrive()
ids = [d.PNPDeviceID for d in drives]
print ids
Post the output of the print command. Do this with the reader connected.

Alright, done (I think). Here's the output I came up with:

So far it looks good
Now try the following code
Code:
import wmi
c = wmi.WMI()
drives = c.Win32_DiskDrive()
ids = [d.PNPDeviceID for d in drives]
partitions = [d.Partitions for d in drives]
print zip(ids, partitions)

OK that shows me the problem. Expect it to be fixed in the next release. Thanks for taking the trouble.

Hey, great to hear and it wasn't any trouble at all. It was my first time playing around with Python (and I had no idea what I was typing), but it was fun nonetheless.

Anyway, thanks again for your hard work. It's much appreciated.

And now, I'm off to bed... Good night!

Actually since this is a windows only pure bugfix I just re-released 0.4.18 so re-install and you should be good to go.

Nice job Kovid it works now! But my mouse cursor is still going crazy, it keeps kicking it to the top right corner of my screen every 20 secs

I doubt that has anything to do with libprs500. There is no mouse related code in libprs500 and it uses the standard windows driver to access the 505.

Kovid - Do you have a revision history (or log) for each of your releases for LIBPRS500? I just installed 04.18 (BTW - I love this software over the Sony e-book software!!! You can do so much more to the e-books so that they look great on the Sony Reader) and I noticed that you have 04.19, but don't want to have to keep reinstalling if I know what the changes are. Thanks...

Every version bump is a separate commit so just look for the changesets between the last version bump and the current one.
