Sony PRS 505 & ADE problems....

Apologies if this has already been asked, I've tried search but can't find anyone with the same problem.
I have a Sony Prs 505 and have ADE on my PC. I've used it before to purchase an ebook from waterstones (UK) and have successfully transfered an ebook to my reader, and have finished reading it, however, today I've purchased an ADE ebook from peachpit press, and have transferred it over to my readers MS and it freezes on the first page. I've tried a soft reset but it's still frozen on that page. HELP!!

After doing a reset, note that it *won't* clear the screen but you'll need to slide the power switch to start it up again! Look for the LED to light up yellow as it starts up.

Yah. Reset doesn't restart them, it just shuts them totally down. They don't reboot until you turn them back on.

Did that fix the problem, then?

Is it something to do with the MS??

Well, I'd certainly try removing any external cards if it won't startup. I guess the other possibility is that it ran out of power - I'd advise charging it (check for the LED to go red, then go off when charged) before trying again. A generic PSP charger would be best, as that charges without 'blocking' the reader.

I've managed to unfreeze it, but each time I open that ebook I can't get past the first page. Any ideas why??
