Newbie question - What is the difference between libprs500 and ConvertLIT?
Totally confused Newbie here. Please help me out. Are these simply 2 different programs designed to do the same thing? Are there advantages of one over the other?

Libprs500 does a lot more than convertLit. Libprs500 is (at least) all of the following:
When converting from Microsoft Lit format to Sony's format, libprs500 actually makes use of convertLit under the floor.
P.S. I'm sure that someone will kindly correct any mistakes I've made in the above explanation.

ConvertLit is a program that lets you convert from the DRM'ed MS Reader format into non-DRM'ed MS Reader format HTML or from MS Reader format to HTML & images, while libprs500 is a ebook-management app, one aspect of which involves conversions from various formats of ebook to Sony (LRF) format.
I believe that libprs500 itself uses an embedded version of ConvertLit for part of it's conversion of non-DRM'ed MS Reader eBook to Sony eBook.

I am looking forward to the ability to Libprs500's ability to convert LRF to HTML. That will make me feel better about any problems of Sony discontinuing the PRS line and stopping support.
I do not want my minidisc nightmare to relive itself.
