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.

if you are using the Connect Software, you HAVE TO upgrade to ebook Library in order for the Software to see your 505. Connect ONLY works with the 500.

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.
