Hi

This is my first post, i am hoping someone can help. I have Sony ereader and just downloaded my first books from waterstones. Downloaded the books ok into Adobe Digital Editions but cant transfer to ereader. I see from previous posts that my ereader should appear under bookshelves but its not. Its appears to be connected ok as its listed when i go into Sony's elibrary. Would appreciate any help. Thanks.

Welcome Lizzy. Been too many iterations since I use my PRS-500 and there have probably been some changes. That said, you might try using Calibre (see the WIKI pages here on MR). I understand that it might be easier to use than the Sony Library SW.

Back in the old days, you could just drag the book from the hard drive to the Sony Reader using the Sony SW. However it did not work in reverse (i.e. from reader to hard drive).

Good luck & you'll probably get some better answers soon from more knowledgeable people.

Hi there Lizzy
have you tried authorizing your computer ?, it is in the drop down on Adobe Digital Editions in the library dropdown that is, I have never bought a book from Waterstones, but I remember having authorized my editions.
Welcome to the site

If you have the PRS-500 as your profile says then it is not supported by DE, you need the PRS505 with the new firmware installed.
