Reader not showing up on Sony Software
I have never met a more finicky piece of equipment. All of a sudden the Reader refuses to show up on the Sony software. The reader shows the USB icon but it doesn't show up as a drive or on the connect software. Help?

I don't have a 505, but here is something to try:
1. Close the ebook Library, and unplug your 505. Then, open up Task Manager and see if the Ebook Library is still running as a process. If so, end it.
2. If that doesn't work, reboot your computer and reboot your Reader.

Every once & a while I have a problem with my Reader registering with the computer. I find that usually I can just unplug it, wait for the Reader to go back to it's menu screen & re-plug it in and it shows up fine.

This is the worst software on the planet. I had trouble with earlier versions on my Vista32 system, and have similar problems on my 7x64 system. It installed fine on my win7x32 netbook, so I guess I will use that to buy books from sony.
